Cardinal Sinners Auditions

From Lauren Burke ’16:

Does your entire floor hear you singing in the shower?

Do you melt at the thought of 8 part harmony?

Do you have terrible stage fright but, like, might want to sing

Did you wake up like this?

THEN COME AUDITION FOR THE CARDINAL SINNERS, Welseyan’s oldest all-female acapella group.

The Ascension of James: A Slender James Concert


From the illustrious Nate “Neepaz” Repasz ’14:

Slender James was formed in a simulation of 2011 under the auspices of a cosmic DOYCE. Since then, it has developed several norms and regenerative properties.

Yet, as all self-sustaining entities must, the James now prepares to forfeit its progenitors to ensure the future of its progeny. And so, as the eve of the Ascension approaches, we supplicate you to watch a swan song, as we step aside for our supplanters.

In other words, come listen to us sing songs as we send our six seniors into the sunset.

James Ascended. James eternal. James bless.

Date: Today, Friday, May 9
Time: 7:30 PM
Place: WestCo Lounge
Facebook: Yep!

Quasimodal on Ice!


Emma Buford ’16 says:

Our winter concert, on ice! You’ve seen us in briefs so you obviously don’t wanna miss quasi on the rocks!

We’ll be starting our set at 7 sharp (actually though)–a special treat is in store for all who make an early showing!

Bring your bestie, your uncle, your pet, your textbooks, your water bottle filled with whatever you like, but most importantly bring that quasi love ?

Ben Jacobs ’14, the dashing tall blond gentlemen whose eyes could be described accurately with the simile “like icebergs in the cold waters of the Arctic Sea, piercing hearts worldwide as icebergs pierced the hull of the Titanic on that dark and fateful night so many years ago, that night that shall forever live on in infamy layered with Leonardo DiCaprio and why didn’t they both just jump onto that door it would TOTALLY have held them for at LEAST long enough for help to arrive what a fucking stupid end to a movie” sends us this message from the Wesleyan Spirits:
