1 PATTI SMITH Banga
An action-packed weekend of musical events is coming up this weekend in Oberlin. On Friday night at the Sco, Genesis P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV (pictured above) will be performing accompanied by Oberlin’s own Aaron Dilloway (!!!). An opening set will be performed by Robert Turman (former member of Non). In addition to the show, Genesis will present their lecture in Mudd 050 entitled “Breaking Sex” Saturday at 4 PM. More information can be found here
Saturday night Traxman and Deejay Manny perform at the Sco. Footwork music’s been popular on the airwaves this year, and these two guys are some of the best in the game. This one is not to be missed! Free for students, $5 for non-students. More information here
On Sunday, the Feve will be transported back to the 60s during the Scopitone Party. Scopitones were 16mm film jukebox machines used mainly in Europe in the 1960′s and were the precursor of music videos. Lots of Goofy Rock and Roll, Go-Go Dancing, French Pop Ye-Ye, and more. Free.
The cover band showcase was great. Not only was it fun, but the bands seemed to have genuinely put some work into actually sounding good. I can’t say I had any favorites, but the Shakira cover band, Shakir A’neal sounded awesome.
After the show, I caught up with lead singer, Carla, and lead Guitarist, Maxim, and asked them a few cover band related questions:
Why did you choose to cover Shakira and how did the band name come about?
What songs did you cover and why did you pick those particular songs?
here’s a sampler of things ive been listening to lately. enjoy!
Flying Saucer Attack- My Dreaming Hill
Beat Happening- Collide
My Bloody Valentine- Slow
Round of Applause- Wacka Flocka Flame
Arvo Pärt- Cantus In Memory of Benjamin Britten
