[UPDATED] Students, Faculty, and Alumni to Play at The MASH, Wesleyan’s INDOOR Music Festival

That’s a boring headline, but this year’s first showcase of student talent is The MASH, which brings 19 student bands, one faculty band, and one alumni band together to grace Wesleyan’s campus with their sweet tunes all afternoon this Friday.

UPDATE 9/11/15: The MASH is now INDOORS for the first time ever because this rain is the worst. The Olin stage is now in the first floor of Usdan. The CFA stage is now in Crowell Concert Hall. The North College stage is now in the ’92 Theater. The main stage on Foss is now also in Crowell. Can you mosh in Crowell?? Only time will tell. The post below is updated with how the schedule was at 3 a.m. this morning.

A couple weeks ago, I told you about what the music scene here is like. Tomorrow, you get to ~experience it,~ this time courtesy of the Center for the Arts. The fourth annual MASH is tomorrow, Sept. 11, from 2-7:30 p.m. 19 student bands, one faculty/admin band, and one very special alumni band are holding down the all-day festival this year. So now, instead of just roasting outside tomorrow afternoon, you can roast outside while listening to some cool music.

For the first three hours, there are three stages — one in front of Olin Memorial Library, one on the North College Lawn, and one in the CFA. For these three hours, you will have to choose where you want to go. After that’s done, everyone migrates to the main stage at the foot of Foss Hill, where Smokin’ Lillies5 GuysChef, and The Rooks close out the night.
