Mao’s Last Dancer
Avon Cinemas, 6:30 and 8:50
Last week, the Avon was playing “Get Low.” To me, “Get Low” sounded like the name of an end-of-summer schmaltzy dance flick, maybe about a hip-hop dancer and a ballerina who fall in love against the odds. Oh, how wrong I was. “Get Low” was about a hermit living alone in the woods. “Mao’s Last Dancer,” on the other hand, seems to actually be about a dancer!
Salomon 101, 8:00 p.m.
What’s that you say? Somehow you managed to miss all of the singing, a cappella delight around campus last night? I know you’re probably feeling really bad about that right now, but don’t worry: the Derbies and the Chattertocks are getting together to sing those regrets away!
Neon Night II: The Afterglow
Delta Tau, 10:00 p.m.
$3 door, $1 drinks
If you like your $1 drinks glowing, if you like black lights and glowsticks, if you just wanna dance with a beautiful stranger who’ll leave their neon body paint all over your clothes by the end of the night, if this is what you want from your night, get thee to Delta Tau!
One of these days, we’re going to make it to a full week of classes. Until then, I’m going to keep complaining about how exhausting these three-and-four-day weeks are. Just cause we didn’t have class on Monday, doesn’t mean it isn’t time for a weekend on Friday, amiright?
The Fall Arias Concert
Grant Recital Hall
The classiest event of the fall is back and better than ever! Featuring the talented singers and pianists of Brown Opera Productions, the Arias concert is your best (and cheapest — the Aria concerts are free!) bet for a perfect, culturally-enriching start to an evening.
Triple Threat A Cappella Concert
If you spent your summer watching Glee re-runs and memorizing snarky Sue Sylvester quotes, then this concert should help ease your withdrawal pains. We know, it’s hard. But the Higher Keys, Jabberwocks, and Ursa Minors all taking the stage together make it just a little easier to hold on to that feeling.
What Can You Do?
Zeta Delta Xi
Between the Arias, the a cappella, and Zeta Delta Xi’s Open Mic night, it doesn’t seem possible to escape hearing people sing tonight around eight. If this is your kind of night, grab a drink and enjoy it. If it’s not, grab several and heckle!
Blow Your Mind
Phi Kappa Psi
$4 door, $1 drinks
After you get kicked out of open mic night for that awful rendition of “Livin’ on a Prayer,” hide from your shame at “Blow Your Mind.”
