At 11:15 PM on Friday, May 11, several hundred Wesleyan students all pushed play on the same playlist while congregating on the Denison Terrace – the steps behind Olin. The playlist lasted for 1:50:38 and, much to everyone’s surprise, the large mob did not disperse into smaller groups of rogue agents raging around campus. Instead, the mob remained a massive but entirely mobile group and moved all around campus.
But before we say anything else about this, SEND US YOUR PICTURES FROM WESRAVE! No post about this event would be complete without copious photographic evidence, and I know that people were taking pictures because I saw those flashes going off all night. Send whatever you have to staff[at]wesleying[dot]org and I’ll root through it and recreate the evening with photos.
Where did WesRave go? Check past the jump for a full listing.
Kacha Bott’nique ’13 concoted pretty much the best event for her birthday back in April, and I’m really glad to see it happening again on a much larger scale. If you like to have a fucking awesome time, check out the upcoming silent rave:
To celebrate the end of classes we’re throwing a huge silent rave this Wednesday Friday night. For a silent rave all one needs is an mp3 player of sorts and a pair of headphones. We’ll all be listening to the same music (see the website to download the playlist–it’s one file) and hit play at the same time. With everyone rocking out together we can dance everywhere–outside and inside–without making noise, so be prepared to move.
Dance for as long as you want. If you arrive late or get off synch, we’ll be starting at 11:15 on the dot (if you arrive 20 minutes late, start the playlist 20 minutes in). The playlist is built off of your suggestions and includes a range of music that will move you–we promise. Contact us if you have a problem downloading the music.
We’ve organized this event for no other reason than to celebrate the end of the year and dance.
We also have 600 glowsticks for the taking.
Meeting time & place: 11PM, Wednesday Friday, Olin steps. Look to the website and Facebook event for updates!
