Hot diggity damn: Baltimore-based synthpop trio Future Islands, Steve Albini-approved indie-turned-noise rock project Cloud Nothings (whose Attack on Memory is seriously an attack on every other album I’ve heard this year), and total-mystery-to-me openers Ed Schrader’s Music Beat are coming to Eclectic next Thursday night for what is being billed as “the last big-ass concert at Eclectic.” I believe it. Tickets are available for $5 and, as usual this concert season, reservable via Aural Wes’ Ticketleap site. (That’s not the whole purchase. You have to pick them up in Usdan, which requires $5 cash.)
For more information on the acts themselves, you can hustle on over to Aural Wes, which succinctly states that “if you’re trying your best to get sweaty before finals, this is definitely the show to do it at.” Meanwhile, Sky Stallbaumer ’12 writes in about ticket pickup details. HE EXPLAINS THINGS IN ALL CAPS TO DENOTE THAT HE IS NOT FOOLING AROUND:
Future Islands and Cloud Nothings tickets that were already reserved online can be picked up THIS WEDNESDAY starting at noon in Usdan. From here on out, all the important stuff is in caps.
YOU NEED A PHYSICAL TICKET FOR ENTRY INTO THIS CONCERT. YOUR TICKETLEAP CONFIRMATION IS INSUFFICIENT. THESE TICKETS COST $5, CASH ONLY. YOU CAN PICK UP RESERVED TICKETS IN USDAN starting this Wednesday. Did everyone catch that? PHYSICAL TICKETS ARE NECESSARY FOR THIS CONCERT. AS THEY ALMOST ALWAYS ARE.
All that said, there are still a fair amount of tickets available, should you wish to purchase one in person starting this Wednesday, as well.
PHYSICAL TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PICKUP THIS WEDNESDAY. BRING $5 CASH. YOU NEED THE PHYSICAL TICKET TO GET INTO THE SHOW. TICKETLEAP CONFIRMATIONS ARE INSUFFICIENT.
AW YEAH THIS GON BE DANK. Stallbaumer additionally implores me to mention that Concert Committee applications are due today (Tuesday), so make some moves now if you’re interested in serving on “the school’s oldest and most hated institution.” Send your pleas to skystallbaumer(at)gmail(dot)com and edelvalle(at)wesleyan(dot)edu, where they belong.
