The Ascension of James: A Slender James Concert


From the illustrious Nate “Neepaz” Repasz ’14:

Slender James was formed in a simulation of 2011 under the auspices of a cosmic DOYCE. Since then, it has developed several norms and regenerative properties.

Yet, as all self-sustaining entities must, the James now prepares to forfeit its progenitors to ensure the future of its progeny. And so, as the eve of the Ascension approaches, we supplicate you to watch a swan song, as we step aside for our supplanters.

In other words, come listen to us sing songs as we send our six seniors into the sunset.

James Ascended. James eternal. James bless.

Date: Today, Friday, May 9
Time: 7:30 PM
Place: WestCo Lounge
Facebook: Yep!

Come Hear: Slender James and the Princeton Footnotes

Everyone I’ve talked to since the start of the semester has told me that the one thing hir break lacked was a performance by two all-male a cappella groups from Wesleyan and Princeton, respectively. Simon Riker ’14 must have overheard all of these conversations:


Welcome back! And so are we! Let Slender James and the internationally recognized and acclaimed Princeton Footnotes knock your socks off this Thursday at the highest-scoring pavilion in Scrabble. Soul food — that is to say, music — will be served.

Check out the event on Facebook, and check it out in real life, too.

Slender James in the National Beard and Moustache Championships

Let Simon Riker ’14 and the hombres calientes of Slender Jimenez show you why a cappella is Latin for “in chapel style”:

Join Wesleyan’s moistest, most bedraggled a cappella group in Wesleyan’s House Of The Lord as we showcase our most perfectly cultivated facial hair. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll probably have a cold sweat or two as we assert our powers of preening and outrageous levels of testosterone for the better part of an hour on Thursday night.

There will be one five-hour intermission, and five one-hour intermissions.

Hint: Theresa’s coming home.

What: Slender James
What?: Slender James preens ‘n croons.
What??: Slender James proons.

More Auditions! This Time for Slender James @ Psi U

Hey you! Stop wasting your life on Wesleying (for the next five minutes) and take a moment to appreciate about how awesome it is that you’re here at Wes right now. Everything is perfect, except one thing is missing… you’re not in an a cappella group! Well, hot dog! Your chance to fill that devastating hole in your life is here at last! Come audition for Slender James, and prove that you are just the debonaire, handsome, smarmy, silver-tongued and honey-voiced young lad we’ve been waiting our whole lives to see stroll through our door.

To audition, please:
1. Prepare a solo; something contemporary. A verse and a chorus should be just fine, or about minute of music.
2. Bring a good joke.
3. Be a dude.

We’ve having TWO nights of auditions, in the Chapel Basement Psi U (signage will be present: you’ll figure it out).

Tues, Sept. 6, 7:00pm-9:00pm
Weds, Sept. 7, 8:30-10:30pm

If you have any questions, ask us on this page or shoot one of us a fb message. Spread the good word, and see you there!

Refreshments will be served–vocal refreshments! But actually, food provided–food for your ears! Let Thin Jimbo wow your face off–for less than an hour, because we are considerate of your time! We also do B’nai Mitzvah. So please come and show us some love, and we’ll show you why they call us Slender James.
