MADAILA (& MOM)
ALPHA DELT // THURSDAY 9:00 PM
Madaila is a colorful guy. On his debut album, The Dance, he makes use of crushed synthesizers and blown out drums to make some pop music that will make your legs twist and shake. We honestly think he’s sick, and we hope you do too. Come check him out.
The frequency of Mom's shows leaves us wondering: Where's Dad? Where's Grandma? Where's Dog?
DJ M0ZR@T (+ ADULT MOM & SPIT-TAKE)
BUHO // FRIDAY 9:45 PM
Ezra Weller has undergone a drastic musical change. Once a classical jazz composer (a mere few months ago), he will be making his live debut as DJ m0zr@t. He has a series of podcasts on his Soundcloud account, in which he improvises mixes where any type of music goes. Check it out for a preview of the man and the mind himself.
Coming from SUNY Purchase, Adult Mom makes bedroom-pop tunes with folk undertones. Laid over simple and sweet instrumentals are vocals with frank, yet endearing lyrics about being in/out of love, (sometimes) making boys cry, and being a person. Their music is honest and personal: listening to lead singer Steph Knipe's voice feels like having your best friend sing to you about their thoughts and memories, and leaves you filled with warmth and comfort.
Spit-take is a three-piece band from New Haven. With DIY punk vibes, their songs are fun and upbeat. We can't promise a spit-take will happen, but you'll definitely be up and dancing to their cool tunes.
BUHO // SATURDAY 10:00 PM

DON FROOT (+ THE GOOD LONELY)
ALPHA DELT // SATURDAY 9:30 PM
What a special treat! You get to see our preview for this show twice! Neat!
Don Froot don’t care that they’re from Middletown, CT. Their music is straight from the tropics, smashing hushed Spanish vocals with a band that could’ve supported George Duke. Come see them this Saturday at Alpha Delt for their first show of the semester, and first show with some new members. The show is also features some special guests (We can only hope Dan Froot will make an appearance.) And a Chance the Rapper cover may or may not be in your future.
Come a little early to see the power funk whiz kids of the Class of 2019, the good lonely.
