From Nick Joseph ’13:
This Saturday, two of Awesomefest’s finest, Midwin Scusco and Vices, will be playing their second shows.
Midwin Scusco is not only a Spanish time traveler from the year 2050, but also a band that plays music. Band members include, and are
usually limited to, E Jones ’13, John McGlynn ’13, Shivan “Shivs” Bhavnani ’13, Will “Dill Wavis” Davis ’13, and our esteemed visitor from New Hampshire, Zac Carr.
Vices plays rock that will get you/the general surrounds all hot and bothered. This fearsome foursome includes Emily Ibarra ’13, Isabel Bernstein ’13, Nick Joseph ’13 and Tennessee Mowery ’14. \m/ \m/.
The whole affair is planned to be short and sweet (quality over quantity), so make sure to stop by before it’s over.
Time: Tonight, 10:30 p.m. – 12 a.m.
Place: Music House 316 Wash

Krill is a fun sloppy rock band based in Somerville, MA, and Baltimore, MD, and prone to really awful “krill” puns. They’re playing MuHo tomorrow night, along with fellow out-of-towners Life Size Maps and Dead Wives, which both play poppy, garagey, tuneful sort of tunes and such. It’s free, and it’ll be a krilly good time, promises Daniel Ferm ’12:
This Saturday, September 24th, we have a rockin’ show at music house. Three out-of-town bands, Krill, Dead Wives, and Life Size Maps, are gracing Wesleyan with their ever-warming glowing warm glow. Come on down. It’s going to be a krilly good time. And it’s free.
LIFE SIZE MAPS
Howe Pearson ’12 writes in with this ambiguous call to action:
Men With Bad Manners are playing tonight (that’s 9/16) at Music House. The atmosphere within and about their audiences and them has always been full of Jah enchantments. Their joyous sounds are carriages to tangible euphoria that last for eternity. CAUTION: Planning to attend their shows is committing your will and energies to these mad men invested with bad manners. Before you know, and without your consent, you’ll be in the above mentioned state. Perhaps you’ll regret later why you had not known them beforehand. But again, everything comes before you! And Men With Bad Manners will be there on stage before your arrival.
Hear their inconsiderate music here.
Date: Friday, September 16th
Time: 10:00 PM
Place: Music Haus
Congratulations again to MuHo residents on their performance last night of FleeFo’s 2008 self-titled debut. Earlier today, we threw a “White Winter Hymnal” video your way. Below, check out some still photos of the event.
Also also also: according to our exciting new poll, many (okay, 31) of you want to hear Music House perform Speakerboxxx/The Love Below next year. I’m pretty down with that. Anyone know if Lil Jon’s available?
Actually, though, what do you want to hear MuHo play next year? My poll’s a little farfetched, and despite my sincerest wishes, it probably won’t be Trout Mask Replica. So weigh in with your own ideas in the comments. It’s never too early to start savagely dismissing other people’s taste.

Indie folksters Fleet Foxes came to our very own Memorial Chapel Tuesday night, in the form of the members of Music House. Following up last year’s performance of Funeral by Arcade Fire, the harmonizing prairie dogs gave the sizable crowd a warm and intimate rendition of Seattle band’s self-titled 2008 LP, punctuated by a rocked out cover of Mykonos from their Sun Giant EP (released the same year). People were clapping, dancing, and enjoying an all-around awesome Tuesday study break.
Check out a video of White Winter Hymnal after the jump.
