AVA LUNA, LAMPOON, AND MORE INTENSITY THIS WEEK

Mercury may be in retrograde but that won’t stop you having a grand old time attending these cool events this week.

Drinking Game by Patrick Vermilion

Vinny Mraz, a second year graduate student, continues his staged reading series with an original play by Patrick Vermillion (’15) and directed by Carsen Joenk (’16). This series also includes a Q&A with the playwright and a talk led by faculty member Stuart Spencer. Patrick’s previous work has blended caustic wit with heavy emotional undertones that ask the audience to not only relate to the story but to admit its absurdity.

Tuesday, October 7th 6:30pm, The Canon Theatre (P.A.C.)

MatthewDavid

The experimental beat scene has no better icon that Matthew McQueen. His style, a derivative of obscure noise artists like Flying Lotus, incorporates pulsing rhythms with sounds of lo-fi. He comes to SLC this Friday for a show that is sure to turn on your ears. This shows openers are Axel De-Chaunac (’15) and Gabe Greenland. Max capacity for the Batesment is 50, so arrive early to check out these acts.

Friday, October 10th 10pm Bates Basement

SLAM Fest

This is the second annual Sarah Lawrence Arts and Music Festival. Last year’s lineup brought us terrific acts like Mac Demarco, Sun Club and Palehound with several on-campus bands opening up. This year’s headliner Ava Luna will, weather permitting, play on North Lawn. Since Ava Luna’s last concert on campus, they have released two full length albums which have received awesome reviews. Openers for this years festival include Hawley and Smith, Wax Poetic and CHURCHGOER.

Saturday, October 11th 3pm North Lawn
