Having amply documented the chaos that unfolded outside Beckham Hall on Saturday night, I undertook to learn what happened inside the venue.
What might have been a short article became somewhat longer as I found myself investigating Wesleyan’s troubled history of large concerts.
“It’s a scam! We all got WeScammed! WeScammed by Cam’ron!”
I arrived at Beckham Hall last night at 10 p.m., the scheduled start time of the Cam’ron concert, and found a line that wrapped around the building and traveled west up Wyllys to the edge of the parking lot across from Admissions. The line ended in a noisy scrum around Beckham’s Andrus-side entrance. No one entered the venue for the next 90 minutes but the line pressed forward into this increasingly dense crowd so that we often had the impression of moving.
What follow are notes and quotes from the scene:
Almost three years ago exactly, I showed up to my first Eclectic concert, as a wide-eyed, naive pre-frosh, a total stranger to the “college music scene.” There was loud, thrashy music coming from the ballroom, where a small crowd was gathered. While dancing wildly around with all these strange older cool college kids, I thought to myself, “Wow! I am actually doing this. I am a skinny, lanky dude moshing! And it feels great! And I should totally come here and do this more!” And the rest was, as they say, history.
Manon Lefèvre ’14 has the information:
Tim Fite is one of a kind. He’s a print maker! An illustrator! A multi-instrumentalist! And a hell of a performer.
Tim creates sonic experiments combining genres from hip hop to folk in inventive ways that make you want to dance. His latest project iBeenHACKED focuses on how humans have been hacked by technology and asks us to consider the cyborg in all of us.
He can’t wait to meet you. Come hang out and listen to wonderful music like this.
Also, Alma’s Engine, Weiner Apocalypse, and Novelty Daughter will be opening!
Tim will be on at 10:00. COME BEFORE PUNK @ DKE. Facebook.

A very unique concert experience for your Saturday night:
A new generation of artists have come together to create a thriving music community in Osaka, Japan. Now, they’re coming to America.
If you feel like today’s electronic music is hitting a period of inertia, it’s time to widen your borders and get moving again. Here is a chance to get acquainted with the innovative, thrilling, and always challenging sounds coming from one of the world’s most exciting new cultural scenes.
A liaison between Osaka and the rest of the world, Erik aka Magical Mistakes was first inspired by Osaka’s music scene as a student a resolved to move there. His newest productions are bridging the gaps between the rhythms of the club and the more introspective spaces found in nature.
Seiho takes his formal training in jazz, influence from the creative mecca that is Los Angeles, and all that has been labeled ‘post-dub-step’ and melds together a truly unique brand of funky dance music.
As a producer, And Vice Versa’s newest works are serious, sharp, calculated lo-fi techno freakouts. A perfect way to bring in the early hours of the AM.
Date: tonight — Saturday, April 5
Time: 10 PM – 1 AM
Cost: free w/ Wes ID
