Last Days of Classes/Study Days/Finals Week Distractions

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

This is it, folks. You’ve been promising your pals that you’d go to their shit all semester, and you’ve been successfully avoided it for the past three months. But it’s time to pay the Pied Piper of Acapella/Comedy/Performance-Club Guilt. And that fucker takes no prisoners. And you definitely don’t have any excuses this time around, because your pal knows you sure as hell weren’t doing work.

It’s also worth noting that attendance at many of these events will likely yield inclusion to an after party or two–which will maximize your opportunity to make moves on that one boy/girl before the semester ends and you go back to your hometown full-to-bursting with the regret that is exclusively tied to missed opportunities. In other words: You’re running out of time, so take a chance, motherfucker.

There’s a whole lot going on this weekend so you’re really going to have to pick and choose your friends  where to have some fun. One place that’s guaranteed to be bumpin’ is the Wilson Memorial Chapel on Saturday night for the Accents and PULSE! Halloween Mini-Jam. The Jam will be at 9pm, full of masked singers and costumed percussionists. Throw on that sexy Campo outfit one more time and head over to the Chapel… and then Falstaff’s… and back to the Chapel… and Falstaff’s… and over to Spectrum.

The Club Fair Is On The Green Today

Friday, September 6th, 2013

rsz_1rsz_screen-shot-2012-09-08-at-32706-pm

Where: Case Green
When: 3:30pm

You’ve already seen sun-soaked bodies lay back, the occasional frisbee circle, and maybe some drunk, late-night wiffle ball (If you’re lucky.) go down on Case Green, but today’s a different scene. Today all 80 student-run clubs (Not really, but kinda.) will be setting up camp along the walkway, trying to car salesman any hesitant freshman to hand over their pristinely inboxed email account to soon be peppered by a bit of useful weekly information from each and every club on campus. Or, littered with bitter alumni, still checking their Skidmore email accounts and aggressively replying all to ask “Can I Please Be Taken Off This Email List! I DONT GO HERE ANYMORE!.” And while I’m a sucker for chain mail as much as the next guy, it’s really fucking annoying. But I digress.

The Club Fair’s good. Get your name out there, see more faces than usual, and listen as WSPN, Lively Lucy’s, and SEC compete for who can blast the most bombastic Indie Pop on the green. Pulse will be banging on garbage, like always. A club or two may have some baked goods, free stickers, etc. A horse might be there. And, for the first time ever, live music will be playing the stage. Skidmore’s resident funk-rock fusion big band, Bo Peep and The Funk Sheep , will start things off at 3:30pm, followed by DJ’s Anonymous, a collection of on campus DJ’s, who I hope wear masks, and I’m told are better than your friend from High School who made that dope track off Garageband, a DJ app, and mad DatPiff instrumental tapes, but that remains to be seen.

Enjoy the sun, drink a lot of water out of a real metal (or plastic) water bottle, say hi to people, and make sure you remember how many letters were cut off your last name for you Skidmore email address.

See you there.

Pulse Final Show

Thursday, April 11th, 2013
COOL

COOL

The clinkers and clankers of Pulse will be performing their final show of the semester this Saturday. This will also be the final show the last performance for 6 graduating seniors: Dan Fisher, Alex Brodsky, Connor High, Duke Yun, Laura Naparstek, and Ashley Belle.

Lest you think you won’t be able to make Dirty Projectors, FEAR NOT, because the show starts at 8, which is when the doors for the Big Show OPEN. There will be little to no conflict.

Saturday April 13, 8pm @ Filene
