Psi U: Back from the Dead

From Evan Scarlett ’14:

Remember those guys at that place on high street where you had a good, clean, wholesome time during orientation? Well… they’re BAAAAAAAAACK.

This Saturday night Psi U rises from the dead and is back to business as usual.

Siren, Northpaw, The Taste, DeVexo and Igbee are going to be here to play sweet tunes and get wild and so should you.

Feel free to dress halloween themed/zombie themed/no theme. We won’t discriminate.

Pumpkin Fest ’12: Cow and Gourds

PUMPKINS! AUTUMN! GOODBYE GOODBYE PENIS PENIS PENIS!

Cancelled last year by a minor Snowpocalypse, Pumpkin Fest returned last Saturday more gourdtacular than ever! Long Lane Farm hosted the idyllic autumn event. The weather was beautiful, music was great, and there were lots of young children running around with their faces painted. Long Lane and the College of the Environment hosted the event and the very cool COE bike generators powered much of it. There was a cow, a yoga circle courtesy of WesBAM!, a tire swing, delicious smoothies from Raw Youniverse, vegetarian food, and tables set up by various environmental student groups.

I got to Long Lane on my new bike (!!) when Friendship Marathon (Gabe Greenberg ’14, Noah Rush ’14, and Jackie Soro ’14) was halfway through their spirited, multi-instrumental set. Next up was Northpaw (Boy-Prince Zack Kantor ’15, Nate Repasz ’14, Eriq Robinson ’15, Sam Sontag ’14, Gabe Beaudoin ’15, Dan Light ’14, and Sean Winnik ’14), who played a crowd-pleasing set including “Let’s Get it On” (Zack singing sultrily on his birthday is the best) and the Hey Arnold theme song.

Unfortunately I missed the other bands (Surprise GuestIsaac Silk and Derek FrankBrushfireFeatherwood Bee, and Goodbye Goodbye Penis Penis Penis), but I’m sure they were great too. Anyone know what the deal with GGPPP is?

Other highlights of Pumpkin Fest include the tasty chocolate-almond-banana and mango-pineapple smoothies I had, eating freshly picked Long Lane herbs, Becca Wilton ’15 accosting me to take awkward pics of her and the cow, having my bike ridden by people for the bike generator, having my bike in general (rode it gleefully around campus five times that day), and seeing Kate Gibbel ’15‘s fleshy and disturbing face paint. Pumpkin Fest was probably the closest I got to apple picking this Fall/I should do that soon.

Lots of pictures and video of Northpaw after the jump:

The Mash: A Music & Public Life Initiative

Not that dumb game you played in middle school.

“You know what I wish?” says person number one. “What?” says person number two. “I wish that several of the talented musicians that attend/have attended Wesleyan will select a day in which they scatter themselves about the campus and play their music loud and for all to hear,” says person number one. “Wouldn’t that be nice?” But person number two does not respond because they left the conversation. Sad story, but true. Fortunately, if you are person number two, your wishes are being granted—by Chelsie Green ’14, Michael Roth ’78, frequently returning alumni Bear Hands, and a whole committee of students and faculty:

The Mash, inspired by Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, will highlight the student music scene at Wesleyan and kick off the year-long campus and community-wide Music & Public Life initiative.

The event will open with President Roth and other faculty members performing at noon on Friday, September 7 in the Usdan Courtyard. From 2-5 pm, three stages, located at the WestCo Courtyard, Usdan Courtyard and Olin Library Lawn, will feature some of Wesleyan’s student musicians, as well as newly formed groups (30 minutes of every hour will be left unbooked, so come ready to play with whatever instrument you need to make music—drums, amplifiers, and microphones will be provided). From 5-8 pm, THE MASH will continue on Andrus Field with a performance by campus band Treasure Island. This stage will be headlined by BearHands, an alumni band. Meanwhile, an all-campus outdoor barbecue dinner will be happening on Andrus Field/Foss. As a part of the event, small instruments will be handed out to encourage everyone to make music.
