Mount Eerie @ BuHo


From Matt Fine ’15:

Phil Elverum is a singer/songwriter who goes under the moniker of The Microphones and Mount Eerie. He is going to be playing a small, stripped down, performance in Buddhist House at 8. His music combines elements of lo-fi and folk music with brief elements of black metal and noise, finding beauty within dissonance.

Check out these videos.

Time: 8 PM

Afrobeat Concert: Benyoro at Buddhist House

Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15 is just killing it with the concerts. This one is going to be wild fun and non-stop dancing.

Benyoro is playing again at Buddhist House, so come out and dance to
some damn groovy rhythms! (They will be performing both an amplified
set and an acoustic one with more traditional instruments! Woohooo!!)

“African music in America at its very finest! An all-star group.”
– NPR’s Afropop Worldwide

In the Bamana language of Mali, Benyoro means meeting place, and
that’s exactly what this group is. It’s about the meeting of
traditional and modern instruments, Malian and American musicians, and
centuries-old songs and modern arrangements.
