AURAL WES is back in action after a long, slow summer, and we’re ready to start posting about bands other than boy crisis and bear hands.
exciting things:
the fall calendar is starting to fill up, with bands like au, double dragons, and the mathematicians slated to come to campus in october and november.
we’re getting gossipy this year, because we want to be more popular.
we’re looking (always) for new writers and contributors. if you’re interested, shoot us an email at auralwes [at] gmail.
if you’re organizing an on-campus show, house party, festival, or jam sesh, let us know. if you want to start a band and need a drummer, or if you just recorded an EP on garage band (use your better judgement on this one), or if you run a charmingly obscure tape label out of your backpack, you can let us know about those things, too, and we’ll do our best to cover them.
