Killer BOB Concert @ MuHo

From Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15:

The Brooklyn-based sonic experimenters Killer BOB will be gracing us with a concert this Friday at Music House. They self-identify as “post-core” and draw from noise, jazz, punk, mathrock, and metal, without ever really settling into any of those categories. According to the band, their music “explores their collective subconscious dream worlds,” an interest that manifests in spoken word/storytelling segments. Their music also “rocks” and is “really really good for listening to,” according to someone, probably.

Check out a music video for the song “Memory Burns” after the jump.

The student group Cosmos will be opening with a free jazz set. What Jason Derulo song will they cover next?? Come find out and trance the night away!

Film Series: Salaam Bombay!

1988. India. Dir: Mira Nair. With Shafiq Syed, Hansa Vithal. 113 min.

 

Before plying her trade in Hollywood, Nair earned international acclaim for this gritty neorealist drama starring nonprofessional street children. A boy is banished by his family and left to work for a travelling circus, but a series of heartbreaks exposes him deeper into a poverty-stricken urban underbelly of child labor, prostitution, and drug dealing.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free
