Lively Lucy’s Present: Iguana Mañana & Tim Lok Chan

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

What a poster.

Tomorrow night at 8:00, old reliables Lively Lucy’s will be hosting jam extraordinaires Iguana Mañana  and Tim Lok Chan in Falstaff’s.

Little is known about the latter, but a reliable source insists “theyre [sic] not lame.” Iguana Mañana has yet to release any official recordings, but they’ve recorded a couple live performances and a practice session, which you can check out on frontman Henry Coxe’s YouTube channel to get a sampling of what they’re all about.

There’s also a YouTube video for a user named “tim lok chan.” I don’t really think that has anything to do with anything, but feel free to check those out and watch someone playing Minecraft or making shit out of rice.

First Lively Lucy’s Open Mic Night TONIGHT @ 7:00

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Fuck yeah.

It’s time. The first Lively Lucy’s open mic night of the semester is always a hit, so if you want to get noticed by your peers and inject some sense of purpose (albeit a fleeting sense) into your life, show up tonight (1/22) at Falstaff’s and take a risk! Sign-ups are at 6:00 (you should get there right at 6:00 or have a buddy sign you up), and the show starts at 7:00. Bring a song, bring a poem, bring a story about why you are the way you are. But whatever you do, just bring one of them. Don’t be that fucking guy. Even if you’re talented, we’ll hate you.

SEC Presents: Slow Magic & PSYMON SPINE (12/5)

Friday, December 5th, 2014

It’s like Deadmau5, but good.

Tonight at 9pm, everyone’s favorite lovingly unapproachable entertainment company will be presenting yet another deck Friday night show to begin this jam-packed weekend. Co-sponsored by SEC and Lively Lucy’s, Skidmore veterans of chill wave PSYMON SPINE, who have shaped up to be one of the semester’s most active and beloved bands, will be opening for Slow Magic, a killer electronic act who wears a fucking zebra mask.

Both bands are super rad, and Falstaff’s will be the place to be starting at 9pm. So take your favorite Uncle Qwik’s word for it and swing by. Maybe you’ll dance up to a whimsical girl with bangs (or a whimsical dude with that one haircut all the dudes at this school have now), who will then change your life forever with an evening you’ll never forget. And pressure you to try cocaine for the first time. But don’t do that. That happened to my friend in Belgium and it fucked him up real good. Don’t do drugs, even if it might involve you getting laid.

I don’t know, I just could see something like that happening at this show. Doors are at 9pm.

Lively Lucy’s Presents: Bobmore Dylanmania (11/20)

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Jesse Hardman ’15

Are you totally over The Beatles? Would you take Blood on the Tracks over that overrated and derivative piece of trash Sgt. Pepper’s anyway? Is the intimate and cozy feel of Falstaff’s more appealing to you than the impersonal expansiveness of the Ladd Concert Hall? Do you think Paul McCartney talks funny?

If any/all of these are the case, well, chill out. You can like The Beatles and Bob Dylan, because both are seminal cultural figures and played large roles in developing music as we know it today. And you can still go to Beatlemore this weekend. But Bobby isn’t the focal point of the school’s biggest annual event, so the old reliables Lively Lucy’s are giving him a major shout-out this Thursday, 11/20, with Bobmore Dylanmania.

The evening will consist of some folks playing short sets of their favorite one to three Bob Dylan songs. I sure hope someone performs this seasonal gem. That’s pretty much all there is to it. Should be fucking awesome. Lively Lucy’s always finds cool ways to switch things up every now and then, so be sure and swing by Falstaff’s this Thursday at 8:00pm and support them and anyone performing.

Lively Lucy’s Presents: Kitten Forever & Eskimo Sister

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014
They'll fuck you uuuup.

They’ll fuck you uuuup.

Minnesota-based riot grrrl trio Kitten Forever will be filling the punk-shaped hole that exists in all of our hearts when they grace the near-collapsing Falstaff’s stage Thursday night. Joined by Skidmore’s very own angels of tweemo slacker Eskimo Sister, Kitten Forever are sure to show you that all the music you listen to is actually mega-lame and just another product of the patriarchal mainstream machine.

Show starts at 8:00pm. Don’t be a scrub and just show up for one band. Support Eskimo Sister. Support Lively Lucy’s. And definitely support Kitten Forever, because they’re coming from like a million miles away and will probably have some merch you can buy so they can afford jackets (it gets fucking coooold in MI).

Lively Lucy’s Presents: Pinegrove & Iguana Mañana

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
D'aww.

D’aww.

Tomorrow night at 8:00pm, Lively Lucy’s will bring yet another off-campus band to Falstaff’s, our esteemed performing arena.  Hailing from Montclair, NJ, Pinegrove is a four-piece lo-fi emo-folk outfit. Think of it as if Justin Vernon and Ben Gibbard’s lovechild discovered fuzzy distortion. Brandishing solid harmonies and über-woe-is-me lyrics, Pinegrove have a lot going for their sound, and their live videos suggest they have a put on a pretty tight live performance.

Opening the show will be newly-christened Skidmore band Iguana Mañana, who will hopefully put some music on the Internet relatively soon. In the meantime, you can check out a brief snippet of their “My Name Is Jonas” cover from the Lively Lucy’s promotional. Check out their latest EP Mixtape Two. It’ll probably make you sad or wish you were.

Show starts promptly at 8:00, so show up to Falstaff’s on time and catch both bands.

ROCK THE VOTE: A Student Band Showcase

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Tomorrow (Thursday) night at 8:00 in Falstaff’s (which apparently now has a fully functioning and soon-to-be operating bar), Lively Lucy’s will be hosting their (bi?) annual student band showcase. The showcase has become a consistent hit from Lively Lucy’s, and it’s always a great chance to check out some new and old faces in the Skidmore music scene.

Robin Adams, circa 1986

Robin Adams, circa 1986

Co-sponsored by killers of cool SGA, the showcase will feature a solid array of bands of varying styles and seniority. There will also be an opportunity to vote for SGA representatives and free Esperanto’s, which sounds like the ideal Thirsty Thursday to me. Be sure to stop by and check out what will (hopefully) be pretty short and sweet sets from the following bands:

The Salmon Of Knowledge
Big Booty Judy (now featuring Izzy Howard on vocals)
Dope Mosely
Good Neighbor
Iguana Mañana
Knights of Tundra (listed as a Dragonforce cover band, which is probably a joke, but a dude can hope, right?)
Eskimo Sister
The Melon Girls

If you’re new to Skidmore, this will be a great introduction to the music scene–one of the hidden and underrated aspects of campus life. And if you’ve been around for a while, odds are you know someone in one of these bands, so avoid getting a mass text from them at 8:05 and just show up and stay for the whole thing, because you definitely don’t have better things to do (and late night has been majorly sucking lately).

On the real, though, we lost some good bands to the real world this past year, and it’s really cool that new and old bands are stepping up and showcasing their shit, because these bands work fucking hard. So show up at 8:00pm with some friends and ready to sing to Red Hot Chili Peppers or Sublime, because you know someone will probably cover one (or both) of them.
