Cade Leebron ’14 writes:

Are you funny? Can you sing? Then you should definitely probably audition for Wesleyan’s only a cappella/sketch comedy group. We do both of those things! Come on down to the music studios basement (in the CFA) TODAY at 4:30-6:30pm or Sunday 2-4pm and show us your stuff! (Not your genitalia! Your skills.) 

Please prepare a song and something to make us laugh! If you can’t make either of those audition times, email cleebron(at)wesleyan(dot)edu and we can try to work something out.

  • WHEN?: Thurs. (today!) from 4:30-6:30pm; Sun. from 2-4pm
  • WHERE?: Music Studios Basement

Film Series: Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

1965. USA. Dir: Russ Meyer. With Tura Satana. 83 min.

A go-go girl gang delivers snappy innuendos and bareknuckle punches as they swerve their muscle cars in search of the ultimate con. Meyer’s influential exploitation thrill ride lives up to its delightfully kitschy title – never has rooting for the buxom bad girls been so easy, nor has cat-eyed makeup looked so right.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
