I just heard word of a concert that you might not know about. Midnight Snack, an art Rock jam band based out of Boston is playing at Buddhist House at 8:30pm tonight. The amazing Robert’s Don will be opening the show. Check out the sweet tunes here. This will be a sweet one you’re surely not gonna to want to miss!
When: Wednesday at 8:30 pm Where: Buddhist House Cost: Zero dollars
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.
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.
Get your music grind on tonight at Buho! From Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15, an event that will blow. your. mind.
Mothguts is a grindy NY-based jazz group featuring Anthony Ware on saxaphone, Mike Noordzy on bass, Ben Ross on drums, and Chris Welcome on guitar. They’re known for stitching free and avant jazz elements gruesomely together with grindcore, noise, mathrock, and whatever other dissonant / heavy musics they can get their hands on. We promise plenty of genre and moral confusion.
Take some time from your busy life and quiet your mind. Buho will be hosting open meditations every weekday at 9am and Monday and Thursday at 6pm. Come meet some great people, revel in the present moment and maybe work a bit on that goal of reaching enlightenment. You might even get a complimentary cup of tea.
