VD Presents: The Halloweekend Show

From The Vocal Debauchery Family:

This Halloweekend, we know what’s up.

Girls. Everywhere. In slutty costumes. So much makeup that you don’t know who you’re making out with. You just know that her makeup doesn’t taste that great but neither did the margaritas your roommate tried to make and…

It’s intense. We get it. Take a breather, come see some a cappella and sketch comedy, meet our newbies, laugh, cry, give your livers a rest. For God’s sake, people.

Love,
Vocal Debauchery.

VD Auditions!

From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

Dear Friends, Fans, and Freshmen:

We’re looking to get even more debaucherous, which we can only do with your help! If you can sing, and if you’re funny, hey, let’s be friends! Stop by the Music Studios basement between 7 and 9 PM on Tuesday or Wednesday (we’ll be the room full of people). All you need is a song to sing and a joke or funny story to tell (or another way to make us laugh that involves neither tickling nor nitrous oxide).

Love,
Vocal Debauchery.

P.S. If, for any reason, you are unable to make the audition times, please email kfeder(at)wesleyan(dot)edu and we’ll try to make things work.

  • WHEN?: TONIGHT (Tues., 9/6) and TOMORROW (Wed., 9/7) at 7-9 pm
  • WHERE?: The basement of the music studios.
  • DO I NEED MONEY?: Generally speaking, yes, you should have money on you at all times, but unless you want to bribe your way into the group, it’s not necessary. One should note, however, that the Music Studios basement has been prone to a high incidence of violently playful muggings committed by well-dressed people singing “Spiderwebs,” so one should regardless proceed with the utmost caution.

VD Presents: It’s Not Just Robin Who Sparkles…

Wesleyan’s only sketch-comedy / a cappella group hybrid Vocal Debauchery writes:

Dear Wesleyan:

We hear sequins are making that difficult transition from “night” to “day.” This might be tough for some of you to process; after all, they’re pretty sparkly. So we’re here to help ease the stress, by bringing sequins into that crucial “dusk-ish” time around 6:30 PM. Come join us for this very fashion-forward-y event. Oh and there will also be a cappella, sketch comedy, new members… but that’s not really the point.

Love,
Vocal Debauchery.

  • DATE: TODAY, Friday, May 6th
  • TIME: 6:30 – 7:30 pm
  • PLACE: Exley Lobby; Church Street Side (yet to be confirmed)
  • PRICE?: $100/person (babies get in at a reduced price of $97; this deal won’t last long!)

VD A Cappella/Sketch Comedy Spring Auditions

Do you like plaid? Would you chant about plaid? How do you feel about wolves? Would you kiss your girlfriend in the middle of a concert? How many jokes can you make about the name “Krakaur“? Have you ever been Brian-ed?

Okay, ignore those last few questions…. THE POINT IS vocal debauchery is looking for NEW MEMBERS! Come on out to auditions!!!

Ok, the theme song was the best part of the Wonder Years. Also, it’s asking a very important question of all listeners. What would you do?? You don’t have to stand for terrible singing. But you might have to stand for great singing at the a capella events this week!! (Wow, that was pretty bad, just roll with it. While you’re at it, you can lean wit it rock wit it, too.)
