From Chelsie Green ’14:
This British guy, Stuart Howard, on Flying Lotus’s label, Brainfeeder, is gracing us with his presence this Friday. He will keep you moving to his often disjointed, airy, and/or affecting music, along with selections from other artists with his own twist and projections.
He is coming to us from New Jersey via Bard, fresh off his latest release, “Weird Ontology.” He will perform his distinct brand of dark, chilled out beats that are chalked full of texture and emotion.
Our own peer and my own neighbor Saarim Zaman is opening the show. He’s been playing quite a bit lately for a reason (he’s good.)
Date: Friday, May 2nd, 2014
Via Lizzie Noonan ’16:
FOMO is real and incurable. Spare yourself by coming thru.
Daniel Fishkin’s DEAD LION
Wes music grad student’s experimental music project. Previously described as “romantic oscilloscope music for alley scientists.”
Behold, the winners of Battle of the Bands take the stage of Eclectic once again. Get a teaser of their upcoming Spring Fling show.
Rock band based in Brooklyn, NY. Comprised of Wesleyan alums Keenan Mitchell ’09, Zach Fried ’08, Jake Aron ’08, Will Runge ’09, and Sam Ubl’ 08. In their own words: At Fort Lean, which is a place you can go, the weather is perfect all the time. Hot but not too sticky, and you can sleep in the park comfortably without getting hassled by the cops. Fort Lean is about getting too drunk at your own picnic. Fort Lean is about leaving the city. Fort Lean is a place where you can still see the skyline but you can’t hear any cars and you can put all your stolen wine in the stream to keep it cool and when the fire dies out you can see some stars and not too many airplanes.
Date: Thursday, April 24th
Time: 9PM to 11PM

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
