Skidmore’s annual Earth Day Festival brings together various clubs around campus to provide family-friendly “earth-centered activities” for the campus community to enjoy.  We already know about a clothing swap, an afternoon hike, free food, and a petting zoo featuring Lil’ Sebastian.  But best of all, WSPN and SEC team up to provide a killer lineup of bands to keep us entertained all day.  Check out the run down and get ready for what’s shaping up to be the best Earth Day Festival yet.

BADBADNOTGOOD



This Toronto-based trio has backed up Frank Ocean at Coachella 2012, performed live with Earl Sweatshirt & Tyler, the Creator, and has produced music for the RZA, Earl, and James Blake.  They’ve also been the most exciting thing happening in jazz for the last few years.  They combine hip hop, traditional jazz, and other elements in an exciting and modern way and put on shows that will make you ruckus.

Zula


Get your indie fix!  These Brooklyn dudes make some great sounding spacey music, but unlike the other bullshit coming out of BK can actually play their instruments well.  Should be a fun set.

Ava Luna


Good songwriting combined with a fantastic singer gives us Ava Luna.  Their set ranges from mellow crooners to up tempo crazy noise jams that gratify the soul.

Slothrust


Their music makes me feel funny inside.

Endangered Speeches


If you enjoy dancing to funk music and didn’t get your fill at Bo Peep and the Funk Sheep’s EP Release Show on Friday April 11 at Putnam Den, come shake your booty.

The Rooks


I genuinely love this band and am so excited for their Skidmore debut.  They’re some of the coolest Neo-Soul to come out of New York in years.  Definitely the hidden gem of the Earth Day lineup.

Queen Ambrosia

I did this pro-bono, Elliot.

They stole the show at Beatlemore Skidmania, they’ve entertained you at Stables, and now will be making their South Park Green debut as winners of the Earth Day Battle of the Bands.  The music and musicians are all top notch.  Oh and did I mention they have a cellist Filene scholar in their band?  Oh fuck ya.

    It’s Endangered Speeches. Look at the poster. They’re from Boston. That’s not them in the video you posted.
