12 days of Spring Weekend: What Cheer? Brigade

brightnights11

The 19 piece brass band, What Cheer? Brigade, has been a staple for the Spring Weekend line up since 2012. They aren’t a big name, and some might think, due to their early slot, skipping their show isn’t a big deal. WRONG. What Cheer? is not optional! They are the bees’ knees, the ducks’ intestines, and we are excited as hell for them to come play. If you want to read more about their sound, check out last year’s hype post for the returning champs (and dead chimps). For 2015, we’re going to skip all of the pleasantries. Instead of trying to put a typical performance into words, here is a collection of photos from the 2014 “Find Your Friends” album.

Because we know how much you’ve loved our past Find Your Friends Facebook albums, we’ve been trying to make them more commonplace. To start, we sent our photo extraordinaire Danielle Perelman ’17 to document Brown’s celebration of Holi, a Hindu celebration of spring. It attracted Brown students of all backgrounds (including some Blog writers) and definitely confused some onlookers.

In case you weren’t one of the hundreds of people enthusiastically coloring each other on the Quiet Green yesterday, here’s what you missed.

Alas, after 12 days of hype, artist profiles, wisdom and advice, the Spring Week festivities have finally drawn to a close. Beat the post-Spring Week blues by reliving this past week’s events: find/tag your friends in the two photo albums on our Facebook page that catalog all that went on in this these that felt like an alternate reality. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to relieve the burden of trying to remember every last second of your Spring Week experience… and to give you some inkling of what took place over the past couple of days. (You’re welcome.)
