we did it! we saved the wesleyan music scene!
Nick Hakim & Honey Oat @ Memorial Chapel
Born in Washington, D.C., singer/songwriter and producer Nick Hakim grew up in a household overflowing with musical diversity and cites influences ranging from Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, to Madlib and MF Doom, to South American folk and DC punk. His debut project, 2014's Where Will We Go, Pt. 1 (EP) and Where Will We Go, Pt. 2 (EP), released through his own imprint (Earseed Records) went on to earn critical praise from NPR and The New York Times.
Admiring traditions of jazz, funk, and Shona music while pulsing with post-genre nuance, the duo of old friends known as Honey Oat is drawing silk diagrams of oblique time through sound.
blooper is a flirty pop band with flair (NOT a meme)
The Garden / The Draculas @ 200 High
Since 2011, twins Wyatt and Fletcher Shears have been playing as The Garden. They come from Orange, CA, and create their music with the philosophy of “vada vada”: free expression without boundaries. Their latest release, Mirror Might Steal Your Charm, features warped guitars, punky drums, and campy effects to boot.
Declan Moy-Bishow ’19 and Marcus Kener ’19 take stage presence to an 11 with forceful vocals, chaotic instrumentation and guerrilla-style performance.
