It’s also a great place to find concert T-shirts and music memorabilia. Plus, you can pick up some WESU discounted swag!  WESU DJs will be spinning vinyl all day and the WESU booth will be selling thousands of albums and CDs for $1 each!!!

As always, the event is free and open to the public. New this year, early bird record crate diggers can enter the hall before the event is open to the public for $5 admission after 10am.

Free for everyone! If you do not have a Wes ID, please RSVP here.

Zammuto is the new solo project from Nick Zammuto, a former member
of The Books—one of the most acclaimed and innovative groups of the
past decade. In Zammuto’s progressive new endeavor, “dexterous
musicianship and catchy pop writing are upgraded to hyper-reality,”
(Pitchfork) as he mixes digital rhythms with complex orchestration for
an emotionally intese music experience that blurs the line between man
and machine. 12 am

Snowblink is a Toronto based duo dubbed by the CBC
as “one of the most compelling new voices on the Canadian scene” for
their delicate, ethereal sound. 11 pm

The Japanese make paw-stomping space music. 10 pm

WHERE: Eclectic Haus, Wesleyan University, 200 High St. Middletown, CT

February: WESU Fans Huddle Together For Warmth; Good Times

Ain't No Concerts Like the WESU Concerts cuz the WESU Concerts are in SPACE

Ain’t No Concerts Like the WESU Concerts cuz the WESU Concerts are in SPACE

Thanks to everyone who came to our events this month! We bipped and bopped in new ways, learned what it means to really DO-IT-yourself, and heard a hundred cell-phones ringing at the command of a punk rock legend. Here’s all the fun we had:

The Stepkids // Sidewalk Dave // Featherwood Bee @ Memorial Chapel

Featherwood Bee and Sidewalk Dave rollicked in some good ol’ time rock n’ roll. Then The Stepkids brought us to some deep corner of the galaxy of the soul. You can find some spectacular photos on dear WESU friend and high-stakes photographer Truancy Park’s Facebook. You can read a decidedly unconventional review from Wesleyan campus blog, Wesleying, here.

Thanks to the Wesleyan Concert Committee, the Student Activities and Leadership Department, and TuneIn for support with this series. TuneIn is a service you can use to listen to radio stations from around the world, including WESU, on your smartphones, tablets, and online.
