Get your Thursday night jammy jam on. From Aural Wes:
BAREFOOT JUNCTION… is playing an outdoor concert this coming Thursday, September 11, at 11 pm. Self-described as a “Ph.D program in retromusicology” (tight), Barefoot Junction are seniors Jared Keller and Benjie Messinger-Barnes, along with sophomore Graham Richman. The group lists their influences as ranging from Medeski Martin and Wood to James Brown, “bad dance music,” and Graham Richman (obvi). Guest appearances will be made by Jake Gold and Raphael Gerraty, both ’09.
The boys are playing in honor of someone’s birthday, which probably means you’ll find yourself listening to jammy jams on the lawn one minute, then down on the grass in front of Mamoun’s cart at 3 am the next, wondering just how that Philly cheesesteak got wedged between the windshield and the wiper and if you can get away with stealing it. I’m just saying, where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire, you know?
Date: Thursday, September 11
Time: 11 pm
Where: Backyard between Fountain and Pine
ResLife just sent out an apparently very belated courtesy email last week informing students living around 19 Fountain that… by the way, they’ll be living next to a noisy construction site for all of fall semester. Kind of short notice, especially with such little apparent previous warning:
In case you were not already aware of it, the university is building a new undergraduate house at 19 Fountain, which will consist of three five person units. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the semester. For those of you in the immediate neighborhood, the work will be noisy at times. Workers are typically on site between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. We apologize in advance for any inconveniences or disturbances caused. For your own safety, please do not enter the construction area… Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Thom Sisson ’09 asks “Did they even mention this during GRS last year? I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have picked my house if I knew I was going to be woken up at 7 am by construction workers.”
Sorry 19 Fountain neighbors, bring earplugs I guess. Construction details are available here.
The West end of campus was hopping tonight, y’all. Not only was there a customarily townie-filled block party on Fountain (dutifully busted by P-Safe), but there was also a really sweet setup on Vine with bands playing in the christmas light-adorned basement of a woodframe. Too bad there were drunk kids flailing around and play fighting in the crowded basement, shoving each other into partygoers, knocking people over and spilling drinks everywhere. These are the risks, I guess.
