Ze Who Must Not Be Named Day (ft. DAN DEACON, Anamanaguchi, and more)

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, not only is (omg) the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity reaching into their substantial funds to sponsor this year’s April music and arts festival in WestCo’s courtyard, but (omg) DAN DEACON is headlining the show.

Also on hand will be Anamanaguchi, awesome in their own right – making “loud, fast music with a hacked NES from 1985” – and a slew of Wesbands.

Come witness some sick music, DKE’s continuing (and thus far successful) efforts to rebrand, and what looks like it might in fact be the biggest and best Ze Who Must Not Be Named Day in recent memory:

Dan Deacon! Anamanaguchi! Movement! Gentlemen’s Bet! Apache Kid! Linus! Ishmael! Cous Cous! Sweaty Boys!

Rah! Rah! Rain or Shine!  It will be a day of tyedye, chalking, art, music, and revalations! Sun! Sun! Sun! (pray for sun!)

Don’t forget to tell the Pre-Frosh… Are you ready? YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!

Sponsored by Westco and DKE with educational materials and lectures sponsored by the Adelphic Education Fund and additional support by Radical Performance Machine

Beach Fossils, Ishmael at Music House

Another show 2nite. From Molly Foxworth ’12:

A two-hour, flippin’ A (for auditory!!!!!!) excursion into the wonderful world of hella dank and hippity happenin’ music. If you like the Jonas Brothers (affectionately, “The Jo Bros”), live for every time you hear Carrie Underwood diggin’ her key into the side of his pretty little souped-up four wheel drive, or voted for Clay Aiken over 30 times consecutively CAUSE YOU JUST LOVE CLAYMATION OMFGGGG — this is not the show for you!

But if you love Brooklyn indie pop band Beach Fossils and Wesleyan student opening band Ishmael this is the show for you.

Date: Saturday, April 3
Time: 11:00 PM – 1:00 AM
Place: WestCo Cafe Music House (316 Wash)

Wesleyan bands take it to the road

Oh, spring break. Weather’s getting warm, trees are budding, flowers are blooming, and birds are chirping. And taking a hint from those baby birds who are taking wing and flying from the nest, Wes bands Duchampion, The Last Minutes, Apache Kid, Metacomet, and Ishmael are using this break as an opportunity to sing their songs in new and exciting locations. For those of you in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia who are feeling a little homesick for Wesleyan already, check out the tour dates after the jump to see when you’ll have the opportunity for a little Wes love.  I’m not listing college shows, as they might not be accessible… Oh, and Aural Wes put up a similar post with some more info on some of the bands, so if you’re curious about any of the individual bands you should check that out here.
