WestCo Cafe Rave: 80s Edition

WestCo is throwing its first dancealicious rave of the semester, and Ryan Gardner ’15 implores you to leave your fecal/oral transmission at the door (but do shake your booty twice to make up for what we missed tonight). Can you guess what the theme is?

WestCo is throwing its first cafe rave of the new year this Friday, February 10th! The acts we have booked are Shark Frick at 10 PM, Freshmen at 11:30 PM, and Portero at 12:30 AM. The show ends at 2, and it should be a great show, so come on out and get your rave on! (WEAR YOUR BEST 80S WEAR OR WHATEVER WE DON’T JUDGE.)

Date: Friday, Feb. 10
Time: 10:00 PM – 2:00 AM
Place: WestCo Cafe
Cost: Free

“We work up a serious sweat,” said Leslye Herrmann, a senior who joins her professor and other students for the extracurricular workout, “I’ve had a real consciousness-raising about my body.’

Doesn’t that sound like fun?
