WSPN & Lively Lucy’s Presents: The Glimmer Twins

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Like the DA’s bathroom, minus “KILL WHITEY”

In keeping with the newfound tradition of tribute bands coming to Skidmore over Halloweekend, Rolling Stones tribute band, The Glimmer Twins, will be playing a show at Falstaff’s tomorrow night.

Anybody who remembers how fucking incredible Start Making Sense was last year won’t want to miss this. They sound great, and the main guy actually looks a lot like Mick Jagger. They just need the guy playing Keith Richards to collapse in a pile of his own vomit and/or shit to complete the illusion. SUCH ENERGY!

Hopefully they won’t play the boring old stuff and stick to the disco hits, like “Miss You” and “Undercover of the Night.”

WSPN & SEC Present: Talking Heads Tribute Band @ Falstaff’s

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

On Friday, October 28, WSPN and SEC are hosting Start Making Sense—the premier Talking Heads tribute band in the greater tri-state area—in a Halloween show at Falstaff’s. This is a “Once in a Lifetime” opportunity, because these guys will be “Burning Down the House” all night!

But really, as the WSPN janitor office manager, I guarantee this will be fucking amazing. Tribute bands are a blast, and a surf rock band called The Great White Caps is opening. There will also be a costume contest with the chance to win WSPN prizes. Just dress up as your parents in the early 80s and pretend the Talking Heads are actually playing at Falstaff’s.

“God, Reagan is such a dick, you guys. Let’s check out Red Dawn and watch MTV all night.” See? So easy, and you’ll definitely win if you go all out. I expect to see you all there in your finest Salvation Army finds.
