Plume Giant / Alpenglow @ Earth House

The Eart Yurt is at it again.

Plume Giant is a three-piece band from Brooklyn. The three members met in Yale and have played several shows over the last few years at Wesleyan. Once a folk trio with a penchant for catchy melodies and big choruses, they have been developing a more orchestral, synth-pop sound of late, experimenting with more instruments and textures in preparation for a new album set to drop in 2014.

A Brazilian Psychedelic Experience: Sessa and The Trip, DJ Joel Stones, and O Presidente

Andrew Zingg ’13 has that tropical zingggggg:

Take a trip back to 1960s Brazil with the psychedelic funk/soul/garage of Sessa and The Trip and the dusty vinyl of Joel Stones, the man with the deepest Tropicalia record collection in NYC.

The Bands:

SESSA AND THE TRIP
The new project of Sergio “Sessa” Sayeg, the former guitarist of São Paulo Tropicalia enthusiasts Garotas Suecas. Carry Brownstein of Sleater Kinney/Portlandia said of Sessa’s former band: “It has literally been a decade since I went up to a stage, closed my eyes, danced like a fool and never wanted the moment to end.”

Sergio Sayeg – Guitars and Vocals
Jorge Chafey – Bass
Robin Macmillan – Drums
Joel Stones – Spiritual Guidance

DJ JOEL STONES
The proprietor of the recently defunct Tropicalia in Furs, an East Village record store of entirely psychedelic Brazilian music from 1960s and 1970s. He has DJ’ed parties for the Beastie Boys and curated a compilation of Tropicalia rare cuts called Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas.

VegOut Mindful Meal

From Manon Lefèvre ’14:

BuHo and WesFRESH invite you to a combined Mindful Meal and VegOut
this Friday evening! We’ll be cooking up a gigantic delicious
vegetarian, community meal cooked from locally sourced ingredients.
The mindful meal is an opportunity to thoughtfully reflect on the
processes that bring good food to our plates and beyond, considering
our meal as a part of much larger food system. We will take the time
to appreciate this holistic approach to thinking about food from farm
to fork to waste, all facets of the food movement represented on
campus. It’s a celebration of good food and good people!

For this VegOut we’ll be selling tickets in Usdan this week for $4 –
we’re hoping to make enough money to keep VegOut self-sustainable, so
contributions are appreciated. Please bring your own utensils and
plates!

This meal is co-sponsored by Buddhist House, Farm House, Out House,
Earth House, WesFRESH, and SALD

When: Friday, April 26th, 6:30 – 8pm
Where: Buddhist House
Cost: $4

This happened last night at Earth House. The living room was as packed as it has ever been, and squished bodies erupted into moshing ones several times throughout the night, while people spilled out into the other two adjoining rooms, making for a full house throughout all three acts.

Blackbird & the Cherry Tree began the night with their bluesy soul-rolling tunes. Recently graduated songstress Mel Hsu ’13 cradled us with her cello, Jess Best ’14 with her keyboard and powerful voice, Sam Friedman ’13 on harmonica, and Mark Bennett ’13 on drums. The music contained elements of Hsu’s own collaborative work with Josh Smith ’11, with added soul elements.

They were followed by O Presidente, a San Francisco-by-way-of-Wesleyan based band, including Tobias Butler ’13Andrew Zingg ’13, and Charlie Ellis ’13, who recently came out with their debut album, Club de Futebol. After WESU ranked them No. 2 in their top 30, CMJ “discovered” them, too. Audience members coined their sound “surf punk”, “a little bit of Clash”, or as someone else put it, just “fun-awesome.”

Leaves of Green / O Presidente / Blackbird & the Cherry Tree @ Earth House

From Our Dear Leader Zach Schonfeld ’13:

Describing themselves as “a band with a penchant for falsetto,” Leaves of Green is a quartet of NYU students (two of whom hail from the bustling metropolis that is Chappaqua, NY). “Caving In” is a pretty solid indicator of their sonic depth, which ranges from ethereal post-rock to driving indie-rock to a thick, dramatic climax. And yes, there’s a falsetto. According to NYU Local (motto: “The Wesleying of NYU”) (not really), they’re great live, too.

O Presidente is a noo-wop / bro-fi / tropicália band based out of San Francisco and Wesleyan University. Last month, they released their debut full length album, Clube de Futebol, which tastemakers have called “an entertaining, rocking, and even sometimes crooning record” and “very, very good.” Check out their jock jamz at this link. According to esteemed musicologist Alexia Nazarian ’13, “O Presidente makes me want to get in a kiddie pool and splash around.” [Gabe recently wrote a review of O Presidente’s music, check it out at this link.]

Blackbird and the Cherry Tree is a collaboration between Jess Best ’14 and Mel Hsu ’13. With a cello holding down the bass and the keys building a bluesy core, the duo’s razor-sharp harmonies pull you into a place as sweet as it is wild. Sam Friedman ’13 and Mark Bennett ’13 often join them on stage to fill out the sound with dirty harmonica and hard-hitting drums. Although this band is all about groove, don’t expect to get too comfortable because the storm is never far off.
