Capoeira on Foss

Nemo Allen ’12 writes in:

What is capoeira? (CLICK!)

Holy shit, it’s the most amazing thing ever. More specifically, it’s a martial art form, originated in Africa, disguised by slaves as dance in colonial Brasil.

I’m looking to start a Wesleyan Group, so come through at 4 p.m., regardless of experience level.  Make sure to wear suitable clothing.  I’ll teach an introductory class, and then we’ll make a roda! (CLICK AGAIN!)

Dink 583 @ Muho Tonight

Do you frequently wear cargo shorts and fitted caps? Do you remember hiding the Mark, Tom, and Travis Show from your mom because they used the word “fuck” too many times? Did you ever think the “All the Small Things” video was a witty and pointed parody of pop music? Do you like Wavves but think Nathan Williams may be too much of a whiney, insecure peen to justify listening to his music? Did you think Greenday was cool until they got all eyelinery and righteous? Do you think jokes about poop and/or blowjobs are funny?

If you answered yes to any of those, and probably if you answered no to all of those, you will freaking lose your mind watching Dink 583 play nearly a dozen and a half of Blink 182’s most catchy, vulgar punk pop gems tonight at Music House. The band has honed its show since last year, anchored by new drummer Kevin Reis ability to keep up with Travis Barker’s frantic pace and singer/guitarist Jason Katzenstein’s authentic So-Cal accent. Adrien DeFontaine plays bass. All are ’13.

  • Date: Tonight– Thursday, September 29th
  • Time: 10:30 pm
  • Place: Music House (on Wash)
  • Take Off: Your Pants and Jacket

Trap Haus

From Don-Christian Jones ’12:

Yup, you right, we don’t have sex anymore.  Well, if we do, it’s for money and that’s our own business.  Come party @ The Trap Haus and dance ‘til the floor collapses.  Gucci Mane on the balcony makin’ it rain.  Jeezy said he might come through.  Polish your timbs, press your polo.  Ladies, get fancy.  Hair done, nails did.  Please get your weave on point!  NO OFF POINT WEAVES ALLOWED.  Mo’ money, mo’ problems but if you got it, why not flaunt it?  We ballin’ in this recession.

Sincerely Yours,

Eclectic
