On the SEC Agenda

Monday, September 7th, 2015


Lucius 'Wildewoman' Album Art

Lucius’s  ‘Wildewoman’ Album Art

Welcome back! Before Case walkway becomes a clusterfuck of neon, mark your calendars with this semester’s SEC events. Here’s what’s in store:

September 7

(That’s tonight) – PSYMON SPINE and CANDY AMBULANCE. 8 pm, South Park Green. Skidmore’s own Psymon Spine and Saratoga’s Candy Ambulance (a 3 piece, self described indie-alt-punk band) will be playing to kick off the (academic) year. Things to look forward to: Psymon Spine’s vinyl release on 9/17.


September 18

LUCIUS. Outside the Tang. Time TBD. Indie, Brooklyn-based band. They’re currently touring with The Decemberists, and their ‘Wildewoman’ album single-handedly runs my car stereo.

Oct 2

BIG SHOW. Check SU in the next day or two for details on the headiner. Sorry, I’m an asshole… But it’s worth hype.

Oct 24

SAN FERMIN. Eight-pieced, Brooklyn-based band who have opened for the likes of the National, St. Vincent, Arctic Monkeys, and The Head and the Heart. Their self-titled debut album came out in 2013, with Lucius contributing on vocals. Their sophomore album ‘Jackrabbit’ dropped in April of 2015, and you can listen to it here…


That’s what’s on the calendar so far. In addition, SEC is hoping to do at least one show a month in the newly re-vamped Falstaffs. The new space will host will new musical acts and hopefully bring back some alumni bands as well. As goes the theme, we can only hope that they will all hail from Brooklyn. In addition, Lively Lucy’s tends to bring in both local and Skidmore bands, so there will be no shortage of music this semester. Now, back to arranging your polaroids.

Tang Museum Receives Major Art Donation

Friday, November 14th, 2014


“In Out In Out Drawing #16 & #17,” 1993, by Karin Davie.

The Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery has received a generous donation of 75 works of contemporary art from the collection of computer programmer and philanthropist Peter Norton. The gift, drawn from Norton’s personal collection, is the first in a series of donations to university and college art museums across the country–such as UC Berkley, Williams, and Brandeis. This marks the beginning of Norton’s second major series of donations, with his first being in 2000, when he donated over 1,000 pieces to 32 institutions.

LINE Magazine Release Party This Thursday

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014
So many cool LINES on this poster.

So many cool LINES on this poster.

LINE, Skidmore’s only art review magazine, will be holding it’s release party this Thursday. LINE is a student-run publication that reviews artwork around campus. They review art in the Schtick Gallery, Case Gallery, as well as the Tang. In the past LINE has been a per-semester publication, but this year the editors decided to expand the size and span across the school year. They’ve revamped their image and created a more cohesive and far-reaching publication.

The event will be held in the Tang and will feature live music by Skidmore’s own Otter, Jennifer Florence, Ethan Carpene, and the Accents. In addition to live music there will be food and drinks. And, of course, there will be free copies of LINE.

Tang Museum Atrium on Thursday, April 17 from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. 

The Tang Presents: Steve Lambert, Radical Activist

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014


Remember when that big ass CAPITALISM sign was outside The Tang racking up votes for whether or not it works for you? Well, Steve Lambert, the artist behind that installation will be at The Tang tomorrow night to talk about his work and whether or not capitalism works for him. Should be a good, radical time.

March 5th, 7pm at The Tang
