Local Co-op Sign-up

Charlotte Heyrman ’13 wants you to go loco local:

Like your veggies local?
You might have heard rumblings about a student-operated local food co-operative last semester. The Wesleyan Local Coop brings fresh, seasonal produce from local farms to students’ kitchens (much like a
CSA [community-shared argiculture -ed]). And we’re expanding!

Christopher Owens (Formerly of Girls) @ Memorial Chapel

Screen shot 2013-01-22 at 5.52.20 PM

Before Iceage, Christopher Owens will be starting off one of the best concert double-headers since My Brightest Diamond and Bear Hands:

Christopher Owens, former lead songwriter of Girls and part time model, will perform his new solo album, Lysandre, with an 8-piece band in the Memorial Chapel. The new material will sound somewhat familiar to fans of Girls, and appeal particularly to those who favored Owens’ hushed ballads of love lost. You can listen to Lysandre here.

The show takes place today, Thursday, January 24th, from 8:30-10pm (with doors at 8). Our first show of the new year is an early one, and notably, will not overlap with Iceage’s performance at Eclectic later that night. You can have your cake and mosh/crowd-surf on it too!

Opening for Owens is Mara Connor (Wes/Vassar ’13), playing pretty acoustic guitar jams.

Peep the Facebook.

Date: Thursday, January 24
Time: Doors at 8, Music from 8:30-10pm
Place: Memorial Chapel
Cost: Free.99
