Beats for Beets!!
Lively Lucy’s and the Environmental Action Club are hosting a fundraiser for The Skidmore Student Garden. Beardo, The Artifacts, and Mugsy Boges will all be there playing music. You might as well celebrate the weather with a live show, dancing, and some food from Chipotle and Uncommon Grounds. The Student Garden will be selling canvas bags for $5 and stickers for $1…so do them a favor...
There’s a new band that’s spanking it’s way into the Skidmore music scene. It’s a little bit electronic, a little bit dancey, and a little bit something else. It started as a solo project but it’s currently in the process of expanding to a bodacious threesome. Check it out at www.soundcloud.com/bedrules They may or may not be playing a show with Babes at falstaffs...
New Music: The Music Box by Beta
Danny Goliger ‘15 posted four new tracks on bandcamp. Conjuring the jazz influenced hip hop of MF Doom and J Dilla and the trip hop sounds of the nineties, Danny puts you into a relaxation and admiration zone. With just about everyone making beats these days, it’s difficult to find anyone who actually creates beats worthy of listening to. The Music Box by Beta undoubtedly sounds...
The folk concert was interesting to say the very least. All performers did a great job. I did manage to capture some video that actually turned out pretty good. ignore my stupid laugh in the next video…
Will Sacks/Folk Concert Update
Lively Lucy’s evening of folk music is tomorrow. Be prepared to hear some redonkulously good music from Melissa Chilinski, Will Sacks, Skinny White Folk, and Matt Gaydar. I know I already posted about this event, but I wanted to clarify that Will Sacks will be playing even though the facebook event doesn’t say so. This mix-up gives me a perfect opportunity to promote...
A Place Of Magic: The Band Trailer
Nestled between a vast wilderness of forested magnificence and the all too infamous Falstaff’s, lays a playground for the creativity and exploration of otherworldly soundscapes. Some call it a piece of shit, others call it a portal to unimaginable possibilities, but it is most commonly referred to as The Band Trailer. Complete with a PA, a bass amp, remnants of a drum set, a gnarly toilet, and...
The Downlow is the best 90s/early 2000s cover band on campus and probably ever. They are also playing at Peabody’s this Thursday night.
WTF Is This Blog???
Honestly, I don’t know what this blog is and what it will become. At first, I hoped it would be a bias free type of thing, yet I cannot help but push my opinions into these articles. To my limited knowledge, the music Skidmore students create transcends most other college music scenes. Therefore, students deserve a place where they can find all of the most recent news about Skidmore’s...
New Music: Babes
Skidmore Unofficial posted a link to a track by a Skidmore band called Babes (Zoë Brecher ‘12 of The Artifacts and Jon Benbeniste ‘14). The middle-age women in swimwear on their Bandcamp page may appear a tad strange, but Babes perfectly capture the reverb soaked indie-pop/surf-rock bliss that the kids these days worship. Jon’s voice definitely carries the same timbre as...
Los Elk Video!
This video of Los Elk opening for Rubblebucket is pretty rad. Props to Jake DeNicola for filming it. Also, I want need that jazzmaster.
An Evening of Skidmore Folk Music
The wonderful Lively Lucy’s is hosting a folk night with Melissa Chilinski, Skinny White Folk, and Matt Gaydar. All three performed at the open mic night last weekend and all three gave me goosebumps—especially the Bandersnatcher’s very own Skinny White Folk,who are graced with the kinda voices I’d kill for. Skinny White Folk brings back that powerful and raw alt-country...
