Plume Giant / Alpenglow @ Earth House

The Eart Yurt is at it again.

Plume Giant is a three-piece band from Brooklyn. The three members met in Yale and have played several shows over the last few years at Wesleyan. Once a folk trio with a penchant for catchy melodies and big choruses, they have been developing a more orchestral, synth-pop sound of late, experimenting with more instruments and textures in preparation for a new album set to drop in 2014.

Film Series: Talk to Her

2002. Spain. Dir: Pedro Almodóvar. With Javier Cámara. 112 min.

Two men form a strong bond as they care for the women they love: a bullfighter and a dancer, both of whom are in comas. Almodóvar lends his signature brand of vibrancy and vivacity to this mournful, uneasy examination of love, its expressions, and its consequences.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.

Connect Kids to Real Food — FoodCorps Information Session

Join FoodCorps!

FoodCorps, nationwide service network dedicated to healthy  food, is having an information session on campus:

FoodCorps is a nationwide team of leaders that connects kids to real food and helps them grow up healthy.

We do that by placing motivated leaders in limited-resource communities for a year of public service. Working under the direction of local partner organizations, we implement a three-ingredient recipe for healthy kids. Our service members:
– Teach kids about what healthy food is and where it comes from
– Build and tend school gardens
– Bring high-quality local food into public school cafeterias

FoodCorps is in Connecticut! We have 12 service members are doing this work in school districts across the state. Come learn about FoodCorps, what is happening in Connecticut, and how you can get involved!
