Goo, the trio of Beck Zegans ’18, Sam Friedman ’18, and Bram Wollowitz ’19, released a 4-track album yesterday – the result of a few summer sessions in Bram’s bedroom. Though not all of its members are on campus this semester, the band reunited last night for a secret, sweaty release show at 66 Home.
We’re looking forward to Goo’s official re-entry back into the music scene next semester, as well as any other spontaneous shows that pop up in the interim. In the meantime, check out Under the Electric Blanket on Bandcamp (embedded after the jump), which features three recorded songs, one conversational interlude ft. a few very special guests, and album art by Seamus Edson ’18.
“It’s not one sound, not one performance, not one identity, but a community of styles and backgrounds. I want the MASH to stand for all that converges or has the potential to at Wes.”

Since its inception in 2013, the MASH has approached each autumn with a student coordinator who works in tandem with CFA administrators to plan the event. This year, the student mastermind is Harrison Nir ’19, who worked overtime this summer on reimagining the structure of the festival – and generated prolific amounts of informative Facebook hype in the process. We talk to Harrison and alumna headliner Jess Best ’13 after the jump.
