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

The Stepkids put on a very psychedelic live show complete with video projection. The band comes from Bridgeport, CT and is signed to the legendary Stones Throw (owned by Peanut Butter Wolf and home to Madlib and J Dilla (RIP)). They call their music “futuristic electro soul” and their guitarist was once in Alicia Keys‘ touring band. Their debut album, The Stepkids, was released in 2011 and they are set to release a new album, Troubador in 2013.

Sidewalk Dave is a WESU favorite and fellow CT native. Here’s an interview we did with him last November. He plays rock & roll and his last album, Hard on Romance came out last year. Sometimes he wears pants!

Featherwood Bee is a self-described psychedelic merman surf rockin’ band straight out of Middletown, CT.

Here’s the Facebook Event. Enjoy the concerts! WESU loves you.
