DJ Rashad at Eclectic

1467-artist-266-1366-image-detailFrom Chelsie Green ’14: 

DJ Rashad is a Chicago-based footwork artist. Part of the Teklif crew, this guy has been receiving accolades from critics and music  biddies since his debut album Double Cup dropped in October. His set will be two hours long — you best be dancin for the entirety of it.

He got in a car accident on his way to the airport in September when this show was originally scheduled. Let’s hope he gets here this time…

Our own Watson Frick will be opening the show at 10pm. He’ll be soothing you like your baby bottle never could. The show will not be in the ballroom so if you want to see it, get there early.

Date: Friday, 2/7
Time: 10:00 PM -1:30 AM
Place: Eclectic
Cost: Free

Donnie Collins on Greek Life (Finally)


From Katy Thompson ’15:

Donnie Collins is a Phi Alpha Tau brother at Emerson College who will be coming to Wesleyan with his fraternity brother John Lewis, to share his story about positive fraternity experiences as a transgender student.

After his insurance claim for top surgery was denied (this decision has since been revoked), the brothers of Phi Alpha Tau joined together and raised more than twice the amount of money needed to pay for their pledge’s top surgery. Donnie (now also a Tau brother) could not have been more grateful. In a society that frequently shames greek life for not being accepting, particularly of the queer community, it is refreshing to see an example of the positive impacts that greek life can have.

DONCHRISTIAN, C¥BERGIGA, and FXWRK at Eclectic, 11:00 PM


Courtesy of Chelsie Green ’14, whose name and class year rhyme in a very satisfying manner:

He released his debut mixtape, The Wayfarer, last month and has received good press from media such as Spin and The Fader. Download it for some laid-back rap. Hopefully we’ll see some D’Angelo-ing up in here, and at the very least, dancing.

This Tokyo-raised ginger will most likely be getting all emotional, deeply feeling every sound he shares with us. Italian Vogue actually used his song “Tokyo Nostalgic” in a video, which is pretty incredible.

You can count on some trap-ish instrumentals that cause your mind to wander off somewhere. She’s not afraid to move her body for you as she gifts you with her music, so please give her the same respect. Thank you.
