Randy Newman –> Wes –> Parents’ Weekend –> Wat?

“You’ve got a friiiieeeend in… Green Street Arts Center?”

So, uh, this just in from my parents. Randy Newman P ’14, the legendary singer-songwriter and six-time Grammy winner behind Sail Away and other masterpieces (or, to some, the dude from that Toy Story song), is Wesleyan-bound on November 4th, the Friday night of Parents’ Weekend. Newman will be playing a benefit show in Memorial Chapel for the Green Street Arts Center, performing “songs from throughout his career in intimate solo piano arrangements.”

Tickets are on sale now: $25 for students, $50 for general admissions, $100 for “preferred seating and a signed CD.” Not so bad, when you consider that it’s Randy Newman and all proceeds go towards Green Street’s After School Arts & Science Program and your parents really want that signed CD anyway.

What-a-week for breaking-news visitors: Antonin Scalia and most of Sleater-Kinney and Randy Newman, oh my. Add to that list the uninvited Steven Spielberg-lookalike crashing Argus production night tonight (thanks for coming, P-Safe) and you’d have a hell of a Spring Fling lineup.

Be there, be square, and don’t care!

    Apply to work for Homecoming & Family Weekend

    Emily Avener ’09, on behalf of the Events interns, writes:

    Are you broke? Did you miss out on all the on-campus jobs because you waited too long to apply, or didn’t realize the job board existed?

    Come work for Homecoming & Family Weekend! If you’re lucky, you might even get to wear the cardinal suit. Also, if you’re 21 and have a driver’s license, we really need shuttle drivers.

    It will be fun, we promise. And even if it’s not, you’ll make some sweet bank.

    Applications are available tomorrow and are due by Friday, Sept. 26.
