If you (like me) committed the Skidmore cardinal sin of missing out on Beatlemore this weekend, absolution is readily available. You can (re)live the magic in this recording of Saturday night’s Skidmore-only performance below.

[On another note: check out the music department’s livestream page for a whole slew of archived events that you probably missed as well. Shit, what with everything being thrown on the Internet, why go out anymore? Stay inside. Live your life from your computer desk. It’s safe there.]

Obviously, you should watch the entire performance, but we’ve done you the service of writing out the setlist below the video. You know, just in case you’re only watching so you can see your friend–the one you totally promised you would go, but you waited until the last minute and couldn’t get a ticket or just decided that your Northwoods apartment was too warm and toasty to schleck all the way to Zankel.

Skidmore Music Professor on This American Life

Friday, November 18th, 2011

So, last Friday, Skidmore music professor Anthony Holland was featured on NPR’s This American Life. Holland has spent the last few years experimenting with soundwaves to kill cancer cells, expanding and improving upon the pseudoscientific research of twentieth century inventor, Royal Rife (incidentally, one of the greatest names I’ve ever heard). There’s some sci-fi shit going on in the bowels of Zankel.

The segment is truly fascinating, and offers a poignant insight into the scientific process. Here’s the link, but if you can’t stand Glass’ nasally whine for a whole hour, Holland starts at around 7:00.
