May Day at Long Lane Farm!

Submitted by Rachel Gelman ’12:

Come on down to the farm to celebrate warm weather, flowers, summer, and everything MAY-related with:

  • FREE Healthy Food
  • Farming
  • Crafts
  • Maypole (see above if you’re not sure what this is)
  • Special film screening of “The Greenhorns”
  • …And awesome live music. For a set list, click past the jump.

Bands Wanted for May Day

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 Music Festival at Eclectic

eightSmash the state and sabotage capitalism at the revolutionary May Day Music and Art Festival at Eclectic, featuring art from the Public Art Project, ‘zines for reading, and music from:

Michael Jordan
Broccoli Destroyer
Grocery Thief
Baby Squad


From Aural Wes:

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.

Date: Friday, May 1
Time: 8 pm
Place: Eclectic
