Click on past the jump for some delicious music video content (or just look at the postings on the facebook event). It looks like this unfortunately is running right up against Ishmael, so bounce in between/choose wisely. But those of you planning on attending Joey Bada$$’s Psi U set, which I can’t seem to find the fb event for, should be happy to know that this starts after Joey Bada$$ ends, so the walk over is a great time to kill your bottle of mystery liquid.

Sakhioba Ensemble Concert

Nathan Shane ’13 would like to encourage you to come to the Chapel this Saturday to hear some beautiful choral music:
