A Group of Massagers and Massaged – Today (But Also Other Times in the Future)

This was submitted by Dale Glasspiegel ’13, the only Wesleyan student who can truthfully say he’s known me since my age was in the single digits:

Quite simply, Wesleyan students meet up in Fayerweather 106 (the Beckham Hall building) and massage each other.

Just show up at any of the scheduled times. If you can, bring a towel, pillow, yoga mat, and buddy, although none of these are necessary (Clothing probably mandatory).

We will meet 4 times per week until the end of the semester:

Mondays: 7:00-8:00 PM (Except for April 8th)
Wednesdays: 10:00-11:00 PM (Except for April 17th)
Fridays: 8:00-9:00 PM (Except for April 12th)
Sundays: 10:30 AM-12:00 Noon (Every week, No Exceptions!)

Date: Friday, April 5
Time: 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Place: Fayerweather 106
Cost: Free!

Potty Mouth @ WestCo Cafe


Still beaming from his interview on today’s THESISCRAZY, Jesse Ross Silverman ’13 writes in to promote a show tonight in the Westco Cafe!

“Northampton-via-Smith-College’s all-female indie punk foursome POTTY MOUTH “meld minimal garage-pop and surfy post-punk with super-hooky harmonizing and girl-gang vocals” (Boston Phoenix) The Boston Globe wrote calls them “one of a few great Western Mass. punk/indie bands that made 2012 seem amazing and makes 2013 seem full of promise.”

Amherst, MA’s powerscuzz trio CALIFORNIA X plays “sun-baked garage-punk” (Spin) that is brimming with passion and purpose. Pitchfork calls their self-titiled debut “frantic, desperate record that hits you squarely in the gut. You can hear their whole album here.

Wesleyan’s Let’s Party! Hats! Hats! Hats! and the Kilograms will be get the party started.”
Date: Tonight, April 5th
Time: 10PM
Place: Westco Cafe
Price: 100% Free

A Hallway Play

Hallway Play

Oh man. Cameron Couch ’13 wrote a play and it’s fucking weird. Here’s why you should come see it!

Does the name Cheryl resonate with you, perhaps make you happy? What about discussions about sex with old men? Gongs? Whatever your response (remember that Wesleyan is a judgement-free zone), come check out A Hallway Play, an experimental piece about miscommunication and the ubiquity of life’s mishaps. Yes, it does partially take place in a hallway. Yes, it will be awesome.
