Purity Ring @ Eclectic

From Eclectic Haus:

Purity Rings (also known as  abstinence rings) are worn as a sign of chastity. The practice originated in the United States in the 1990s among Christian-affiliated sexual abstinence groups. Wearing a purity ring is typically accompanied by a religious vow to practice abstinence until marriage.

 Tonight, Purity Ring will perform a set of songs at Eclectic. C¥BERGIGA (Sam Lyons ’12) is opening.

Open Mic in the Westco Cafe

A note from West Co ’67:

Been feeling weird and lonely inside since you haven’t heard any music at Wesleyan since you’ve been back? Depressed because you didn’t get a ticket to the AraabMuzik concert?

At least you can go to Westco’s Open Micthis Wednesday night (read: today). Open Mic happens almost every Wednesday in the WestCo Cafe, and it gives students a chance to perform a song, read poetry, do a dance, play an instrument, or just sit and watch their talented peers do those things.

Signs ups are in the Westco Lounge at 9. Fun starts at 9:30ish in the Westco Cafe. Come perform and bring your friends. It’s a really fun and relaxing time to enjoy the night before the weekend.

Questions? Contact Nina Gerona ’15 at ngerona(at)wesleyan(.edu).
