this afternoon, listen to some SWEET JAMS in the OUTDOORS here at wesleyan. go to the MASH.
While MRoth’s band is not playing this year, Wesleyan’s only administratively-sanctioned outdoor (occasionally indoor) music festival is happening this afternoon and features several students and alumni alike. A couple weeks ago, I told you about what the music scene here is like. Today, you get to ~experience it,~ this time courtesy of the Center for the Arts.
The fourth annual MASH is today, Sept. 9, from 2 – 7:30 p.m. 21 student bands and one very special alumni band are holding down the all-day festival this year. So now, instead of just stewing outside in the humid Connecticut air this afternoon, you can stew outside while listening to some cool music. We’ll also be broadcasting some of the performances ~live~ on Facebook, if it turns out that you can’t make it.
For the first three hours, there are three stages — one in front of Olin Memorial Library, one on the North College Lawn, and one in the CFA. For these three hours, you will have to choose where you want to go. After that’s done, everyone migrates to the main stage at the foot of Foss Hill, where The Highlanders, Jal & Locus, Chef, and El Niño close out the night.
The CFA’s event page and the facebook event have some pretty good information, and I have collected most of it here for you. It’s all organized by stage so that you can pick where to go in the first three-hour block. Everything in quotes is how the bands describe themselves, either to Wesleying or to the CFA.
