Time: 6:30-8:30 PM
Place: Boger 114

We’ll be starting our set at 7 sharp (actually though)–a special treat is in store for all who make an early showing!
Bring your bestie, your uncle, your pet, your textbooks, your water bottle filled with whatever you like, but most importantly bring that quasi love ?

After bringing legendary rap duo Dead Prez to campus last winter, recent Wes grad Evan Okun ’13 drops his first studio album. It is a concept album (listen in order and NOT on shuffle), featuring at least one other Wesleyan student on every track. The album includes performances by Wesleyan a-cappella stars Quasimodal and production by the FXWRTH (aka Coral Foxworth ’15) and SANK0FA (aka Lucas Turner-Owens ’11).
If you’re looking for hip hop that is altogether poetic, introspective, hilarious, and consistently virtuosic, then this is the album for you. What’s more, you can download it for free here.

Trina Park ’15 wants to let you know that Quasimodal (Shout out to Emma Buford ’16!) is going to throw down in Olin tonight.
While not time for our big end-of-semester show, we felt it was time for a little showing.
Come to Olin @ 9:30 for the briefest of sets (<20 min) and let us serenade you! We have some unbelievably fantastic newbies that we’d love to show off, and a couple great new songs.
Come a little tipsy, get a little tipsy. Stop by on your way to a pre-game, or use the concert as an excuse to get away from that awkward pre-game with your Spanish class. Meet a friend, find a lover.
So come on down at 9:30 and help us close down Olin before you head off and begin your Friday night.
Date: Friday, November 30th
Cost: FREE (no need for bills, bills, bills)
Facebook event, yo!

We’re baaaaaaaaaaaack! We’ve been keepin’ ourselves on the DL because what we have planned for you is just. too. good. Mmmmmm.
After a super hectic semester with NO SNOW WTF and lots and lots of FUN, Quasimodal (Wes’s oldest co-ed a cappella group) is BACK and BETTER THAN EVER. And what better way to celebrate a spring revival than a SPRING CONCERT in da historic Memorial Chapel!?!?!?!??!??!?!
Take a quick 1-hour study break on Monday night (obvi you won’t bring your laptops, so just think of it as a much more productive, cultured version of SelfControl) and come join us for an evening of merriment and mirth. We will be singing, dancing, rapping, clapping, stomping, introducing one of our newbies (!) and saying goodbye to two absolutely incredible seniors.

From hazelnani, 22, Single Woman:
“Come audition for Wesleyan’s cuddliest a cappella group!!! THIS Saturday from 4-6pm in Usdan. Exact location to be announced shortly!!”
You heard the man. Look for an update at approximately shortly o’clock!
The a capella group Quasimodal represents bijective critical theory in the 21st century – at once holistic yet intensely focused, a whirlpool of the modern zeitgeist recontextualized within radical social thought. For Benjamin, the habitus that reveals itself through performance and embodiment – as well as the intrinsic quantum chemistry embedded in oxygenated atmospherics – informed the Quasimodal practice as an inevitable product of the atmosphere that created the Greek state.
Get in the holiday spirit with Quasimodal!!!
Date: Dec. 10
Time: 5:00 PM – 5:30 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel
