Some Wes concerts are meant for the Memorial Chapel. “Otherwordly chanteuse” Julianna Barwick honed her ethereal vocal performances in rural Louisiana church choirs, so it’s perhaps no surprise. Eventually she moved to Brooklyn and began looping vocal tracks upon vocal tracks, crafting swelling, ethereal layers of angelic self-harmonization. This is the culmination of that sound.

are coming together for a one-time, collaborative performance that you’re not going to want to miss. It’s going to be a circus of music, dance, and poetic chaos curated specifically for the Memorial Chapel. This kind of art can’t be anthologized.
We can’t tell you if it’ll be fun because that might ruin the surprise, but we think you should probably come.
Check out the hour-long show for yourself, tonight in the chapel!
Time: 8:30 pm/doors open at 8:15 pm
Place: Memorial Chapel
Congratulations again to MuHo residents on their performance last night of FleeFo’s 2008 self-titled debut. Earlier today, we threw a “White Winter Hymnal” video your way. Below, check out some still photos of the event.
Also also also: according to our exciting new poll, many (okay, 31) of you want to hear Music House perform Speakerboxxx/The Love Below next year. I’m pretty down with that. Anyone know if Lil Jon’s available?
Actually, though, what do you want to hear MuHo play next year? My poll’s a little farfetched, and despite my sincerest wishes, it probably won’t be Trout Mask Replica. So weigh in with your own ideas in the comments. It’s never too early to start savagely dismissing other people’s taste.[nggallery id=64]

Indie folksters Fleet Foxes came to our very own Memorial Chapel Tuesday night, in the form of the members of Music House. Following up last year’s performance of Funeral by Arcade Fire, the harmonizing prairie dogs gave the sizable crowd a warm and intimate rendition of Seattle band’s self-titled 2008 LP, punctuated by a rocked out cover of Mykonos from their Sun Giant EP (released the same year). People were clapping, dancing, and enjoying an all-around awesome Tuesday study break.
Check out a video of White Winter Hymnal after the jump.
This concert was designed to take advantage of the instruments and acoustics found in Wesleyan’s Memorial Chapel. Before I lose access to these wonderful resources, I am putting on a show of mostly original music arranged for pipe organ and a small ensemble. It features Bill Carbone ’10 on drums, Andrew Fogliano ’09 on piano and synthesizers, and Nathan Shane ’13 on organ. The space is lovely; the songs will be lush and mellow. The program will last one hour.
The music will be drawn mostly from the two albums I have released this year, both available at iancoss.com
Date: April 23
Time: 9:00 – 10:00 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel
