Nat Webb Appearance (er Coffee House)

Alpha Delt will be hosting Nat Webb, yes, all of him, this Thursday. They will be appeasing the beast with snacks, coffee and music. If you are lucky, a few morsels may escape his grasp and you may eat them.

Performers will include Drake Morgan, Alex Pfeifer-Rosenblum, Todd Rosenthal, Steve Sunu, Zach Young, and, making a triumphant return from graduation, Nat Webb! (And also hopefully Pat Wolf :D )

Date: Thursday, February 22
Time: 8pm-10pm

WesMusic Update

Wesleyan’s own Boy Crisis has some new tunes! Boy Crisis is Tal Rozen ’06, Victor Vasquez ’06, Alex Kestner ’06, and Lee Pender ’07 with most of their videos directed by Jordan Fish ’06. They claim to sound like “a computer having sex with a beautiful bird or something”, and I’d say that’s relatively accurate. Listen to the two new tunes, “Boy Crississippi” and “Seven Years War”, up on their space.

In other Wes music news, you can now listen to a live version of “Ollie Oxen Free” by Laura Goldhamer ’06 from her recent tour with Belly Boat.

Attn: Wesleyan Music People

Sophie Pollitt-Cohen ’09 is working over at VH1 over break and would like to invite all you talented musicians to take part in a new contest. She writes:

Inspired by the upcoming romantic comedy Music and Lyrics, VH1 and Warner Brothers are offering aspiring songwriters the chance to be heard with “Your Music, Your Lyrics,” a contest starting Tuesday and running through Jan. 20. The lucky winning songwriter will be flown to Los Angeles for the red carpet premiere of Music and Lryics and will also have their song professionally recorded.

Sound good?

Then write, record and upload an original love song to http://www.talentload.tv.

(Also you should totally make a music video for it and upload it to youtube so that we can put it here, too, because there’s nothing we like more than watching silly Wesleyan music videos.)

Belly Boat: winter break west coast tour

You may have seen Belly Boat (featuring Silvie Margot Deutsch ’09), Laura Goldhamer ’06, or Daniela Gesundheit ’04 of Snowblink perform on campus, but west coast folks have a chance to see them live this winter break. Xue mentioned this earlier, but I figured I’d post the tour dates for those of you who may be lazy. This will give you an opportunity to hear some quality tunes while ditching your parents or the television reruns*. Or…if you’re the kind of person whose parents complain that you don’t spend enough time with them, why not bring them with you? They might be particularly interested in Natalie Tate remixing their p*ssy.

* Beware of “My Super Sweet Sixteen”. It is the best way to increase Brainrot.

HEAR/SEE

WesMusic, for real

Youth hero Laura Goldhamer ’06 of biodiesel bus fame is coming out with a full length album, Ye Olde Leave Behind. She’ll also be touring the west coast with Belly Boat (half of which is Silvie Margot Deutsch ’09) with some dates including Snowblink, the band of Daniela Gesundheit ’04. Thanks for the heads-up goes to Joe John, who apparently can’t remember that he’s a Wesleying contributor and just e-mails us his news instead*.

*Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
