Porches. And Mugsy Boges @ Falstaff’s 3/20

This Thursday at Falstaff’s Skidmore’s own Mugsy Boges will be opening up for Porches., a Brooklyn-based quintet predominantly powered Aaron Maine, who’s also the drummer of the band Frankie Cosmos.

Porches. has been making rumbles lately with their 2013 album “Slow Dance In The Cosmos,” a project that introduced many to their grit-layered way of wooing experimental, folk rock vibes and utterly inviting lyricism that begs rapid replays. Their calling it “moan pop” or “sad rock” and well, it’s sweet. Plus, uhh, Pitchfork says nice things about them, so, yeah.

Don’t miss this chance to see Porches. for free with Mugsy Boges and three dollar beers. That’s not a band, they’re just selling three dollar beers.



Mugsy Boges Thrashes First, Asks Questions Later

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014


Skidmore’s resident math/punk/emo quartet Mugsy Boges has been rocking Falstaffs and beyond since their arrival to campus three and a half years ago.  Today they released their third offering.  The two tracks, “Good Liver” and “Blur,” rock harder than ever thanks to the addition of Grady Stiles drummer Francis (he’s like Prince – just one name).  The credits section on Bandcamp tell me they worked with Skidmore recording schlub Dave Jonze again, and he dialed in their sounds perfectly.

Here’s what the band had to say:

“We are releasing these two songs together as a tribute to how, and where, we’ve been living the past year. After a few line up changes we found our new drummer, Francis, who really brought them together and we feel more solid than ever. We wanted to share these songs, Good Liver / Blur with everyone that’s supported us from the start and give insight into the new era of Mugsy Boges. Thanks!”

Lively Lucy’s Brings in Band, Mugsy Boges to Open

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013
this band name is really really really long

this band name is really really really long

On Thursday, September 26 Lively Lucy’s is hosting up-and-coming The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die at Fallstaff’s.  Joining them is Skidmore math punk quartet Mugsy Boges for their first show of the semester. The World Is is an 8-piece group, hailing from Connecticut, rich with potential as they redefine a modern, relevant emo-indie rock scene with experimental tendencies, tight, versatile melody, and raw production. Their debut, Whenever, If Ever was released through Top Shelf Records this August.

Now, throwing it over to Ian Cohen of Pitchfork, The World Is “resemble Arcade Fire prior to Funeral, having made their name on a promising EP and unpredictable, cathartic live performances that feature nearly a dozen people making music at the same time… Whenever, If Ever fights against fears, societal expectations, preconceptions, and the metaphysical for the greater good of society, and I mean, for crying out loud, the cover just says jump right in and do it.”  The indie snob godfathers gave TWIABP’s newest record a 7.8/10, which is a huge deal.

Mugsy Boges puts on great shows with super impressive music. The Skidmore seniors released their debut EP entitled Sangfroid in September 2012, available on Bandcamp here. Check out both bands and support Lively Lucy’s.  They do more work on campus for bands and the music scene than just about anyone.

Mugsy Boges Releases “Spent Nights” Video

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Hey man. Hope you’re doing well. I just want you to know that I really value our friendship, and I’m so sorry we’ve drifted apart these last few weeks.

Anyway, the cool kids of Mugsy Boges have released this new music video, “Spent Nights,” to ring in the new year. I hope this video is a prelude to what 2013 holds in store, because I for one embrace this dystopic, drug-fueled nightmare that will define the semester I graduate from college.

The track is taken from Mugsy Boges’ dope EP Sangfroid, so check it out today.

Lively Lucy’s Presents: Rapper GDP, Mugsy Boges, & Yo Soy Milk

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

“Mazel tov on the day of your bar mitzvah, Gross Domestic Product.”


In addition to movie screenings, lectures, and fancy-pants art parties, Mugsy Boges, Yo Soy Milk, and New Jersey rapper GDP will be performing at Falstaff’s.

Apparently, GDP has:

“…become renowned for his brutal honesty and clever wordplay. He has traveled much of the world and collaborated with the likes of Wu Tang Clan, Dead Prez, Del the Funky Homosapien, Rah Digga and Tame One to name a few.”

He’s pretty solid, despite looking like a shitty dude to hang out with and three-quarters of the Jewish boys who went to my high school. It should be a good time, if only because—with the exception of the good work of the Hip Hop Alliance—Skidmore NEVER GETS DECENT RAPPERS. Plus, Yo Soy Milk and Mugsy Boges.

Thursday November 8, 8pm @ Falstaff’s

Mugsy Boges Releases EP

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Not the same Muggsy Bogues

Now that Slim Charles has drifted into the purgatory of the newly graduated, Mugsy Boges is—as far as I know—the only mathrock-prog-punk outfit left on campus.

They’ve got a new EP out on Band Camp called Sangfroid that sounds pretty cool and is basically free if you are shameless and choose to pay zero dollars for their hard work. You dick.

Musical Events Galore TODAY

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Pretend this still image is the .gif.

By Brandon Dyer ’15

Okay, we all know that this Saturday is the illustrious Fun Day (did I actually use that word in the proper context?  Ah, who gives a fuck?) and hopefully you know that the Tang Party is tonight from 8 PM to midnight but were you aware that musical happenings will start not at 8 on Friday, but at noon?  Allow me to elaborate.

From 12-3 on Case Green Lively Lucy’s will be holding the annual Skidmore Folk Fest, featuring the talents of Jeffrey Halvorsen, Melissa Chilinski, Burning Man, Callison Stratton, Skinny White Folk, and Matt Gaydar.  These guys are seasoned veterans of Falstaff’s and have soothed many a stressed-out soul with their beautiful melodies and harmonies.  Not gonna lie, I’ve probably watched this ten of fifteen times now.  It’s gonna be great. Turns out Skidmore Folk Fest is being postponed until finals week, but look forward to it then!

But wait – there’s more!  After that, also on Case Green from 3-6, will be the Geo Club’s annual Rock Concert (haha, get it? Rock? Geology), where there will be Pop Rocks, ice cream, and, of course, rock!  Starting the show will be a local band that has never played at Skidmore before, Speak of the Devil.  You may recognize the guitarist as that dude who works in the dining hall.  Rumor has it they’ll be giving out free EP’s…  Next up is Beardo, Skidmore’s resident jammers.  Need I say more?  And finally, closing out the Rock Concert will be Mugsy Boges.  Last week opening for Evolfo Doofeht, Mugsy Boges put on – I’ll say it – the best show I’ve ever been to.  These guys are the real deal.  There’s also going to be warm stuff to drink and geology-themed candy, so come out to Case Green.

There you have it.  Music all day, with a break for dinner before the Tang Party featuring Third Nature, Yo Soy Milk, and The Artifacts.  Prepare to get rocked, you hipsters.
