Giant Plume Giant Show @ Buddhist House

Noah Rush ’14, putting the “House” in “Buddhist House,” writes in:

Three, no wait, four acts taking the stage on Friday night at Buddhist House. Headlined by Plume Giant, a stellar folk trio made up of graduates from Yale University. They just released a full length Callithump, which you can find here and finished up a national tour in promotion of said album. Here’s a video of them rockin’ out on a rooftop despite a kind of awkward introductory lady.

What? They’ve also played at Wesleyan before.

Other bands:
Friendship Marathon – Wesleyan band debut show, formerly called
Jacquisaurus and the Poppyseeds, made up of Gabe Greenberg, Noah Rush
and Jackie Soro, make songs with lots of instruments.
Brushfire – WEsleyan band debut show, Mel Hsu and Jess Best
Miles Orion Butler – singer-songwriter from Philadelphia
here’s his ep.

Audition for Terpsichore on Saturday

Sierra Livious ’14 hollers:

Remember? Dance Showcase? 6 beast ass chicks danced to Joss Stone? You ‘member, ‘member?

Well, luckily we’re gonna have some beast ass auditions to accompany that performance. For those who do not know, Terpsichore Core is a company that puts on a show every semester for any students who want to dance or choreograph, regardless of previous training. The auditions are for others’ pieces, which range anything from tap and contemporary to ballet and hiphop…and always something fun in between. Terp Core auditions will follow the pieces’ auditions.

Meet us THIS SATURDAY @ 2pm in Fayerweather Dance Studio (next to Usdan). Come open minded and ready to move!

Alex Wilkinson ’13 has decided he wants to get involved with writing on campus for a change:

By showcasing creative, engaging pieces from a variety of academic fields and personal backgrounds, we seek to channel the diverse array of student perspectives, experiences, and knowledge endemic to the intellectual vitality of our campus. Fundamental to this endeavor is an emphasis on collaboration between writers and editors, a process we feel is essential to producing polished, innovative work.

If you’re interested in writing, editing, or taking photography for The Argus Magazine, come talk to us. We hope to see you tomorrow!
