Come out to Long Lane Farm for a screening of “The Greenhorns,” a brand-spanking-new film about the young farmers who are changing America one kale seed at a time as part of Long Lane Farm’s May Day Festival. Here’s the trailer:
This is the dress code for the event (note man in background holding maypole).
Part of a band? Not part of a band but about to make one? You’re wanted. Lily Martin ’14, on behalf of the Farm Club, is looking for three acoustic bands to play at the Mayday celebrations on April 30th at Long Lane Farm from 3-8. While it may strike some of you that, yes, April 30th is a whopping two and a quarter months away, you would be doing yourself (and your band) a disservice by letting time slip by and missing this wonderful opportunity to play live in front of a large crowd on a beautiful day. There may even be free food and such for performers (speculation only), but you should still email Lily at slmartin(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
May Day has stood as a celebration of the struggle of people who are fed up with the exploitation, boredom, and social domination of our society to destroy existing power structures and make room for new ones…
With that in mind, the group of us involved with putting together the Emergence Infoshop and Zine Library (located at 190 High…come visit!) thought it would be cool to have a May Day celebration which embodies the fact that sabotaging capitalism and smashing the state can and indeed SHOULD be fun and exciting (unless you’re a moldy old fucking Trotskyite…isn’t there a plenary meeting you’re missing?)we’re throwing the MAY DAY MUSIC AND ART FESTIVAL.
FESTIVAL? FUCK YEAH, FESTIVAL! and there will be ART: on display from the Public Art Project, as well as a miniature “nomad infoshop” where there will be sitting space and the finest selection of self-published and radical literature for your perusal and… NYC stripped-down noise punx MICHAEL JORDAN and BROCCOLI DESTROYER, and GROCERY THIEF along with Bard’s garage punx BABY SQUAD, low-budget-art-crunk from NINJASONIK and a set from electro-punk paragons JAPANTHER.
Armchair/Shotgun, a New York-based literary magazine founded by Wesleyan alums, is seeking short fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for its inaugural issue. The debut will feature an interview with Jonathan Lethem, as well as pieces from whiskey-swilling, foul-mouthed, up-and-coming writers. Visit armchairshotgun.com for more info.
