Bands from all over the East Coast are making their way to Wesleyan this weekend (along with a few homegrown favorites!) so get yr dancing feet on and your a*s out of the room
THE GOOD LONELY + MEG + HARI
EARTH HOUSE // FRIDAY 9:30
the good lonely - The good lonely takes the stage this Friday at the first Earth House show of the year. The trio’s summer release Could Be Flowers solidified their place as a campus staple with funky, catchy tunes. The perfect way to kick off the weekend. Come dance with friends.
MEG - "yeah, they're back, and this time they're pissed."
Hari - Hari is a new folk/soul project by sophomore Harrison Nir. Hari is the singer/songwriter’s first performance identity beyond his own name--an attempt to step away from familiar ground and leave space for experimentation and growth, while keeping with his passionate soul and R&B influences.
Alpha Delt // Friday 11:00
Forth Wanderers are five rockers from Montclair, New Jersey. Nearly all media coverage of Forth Wanderers’ new single “Slop” remarks on how shockingly mature the group’s material is, given the fact that the lead singer only just graduated high school a few months ago. In reality, it isn’t shocking at all. Forth Wanderers’ lyrical depth is precisely borne out of their youthful experiences, which makes their music especially accessible and yet still impressive. Be sure to check out their new EP, also called Slop, out this November.
YER TRASH + GIRLTYPE BEHAVIORS +PETEY JONES
MUSIC HOUSE // SATURDAY 9:30
Petey Jones is a Middletown singer/songwriter and former frontwoman of CT psych-punk outfit Predella, performing a killer acoustic solo show.
Girltype Behaviors - From the ashes of The Patrick Swayze Karaoke Hour (the band, not the event) rises a new group featuring Matthew Klug, Sallie Fullerton, Shea Fitz and Gemma Shay. Self described as “elevator music for kids who are too young to feel nostalgic for riot grrrl but do anyway”, it’s bound to be wild.
Yer Trash - Back from the summer and riding high off a volatile M.A.S.H. performance, YER TRASH is a noise-hop, punk, post-implosion clusterf*ck coming to leave their collective guts on the floor.
