Snow and rain had a love child and are sideways raining disgusting sleet-snow afterbirth all over us. That’s what’s hapPENNing. But also there are some other things happening this week… or mostly Tuesday.
Tuesday at 7:30– The Culture of Sound featuring Homeboy Sandman
Come hear a Penn alum turned rapper discuss language, the future of hip hop, and hopefully the origin of his rap name.
Tuesday at 7– UPenn V-Day Campaign presents MOREGASM
The anatomy of pleasure hosted by a sex toy shop called Babeland? Donesies.
Tuesday at 7– Penn Fashion Collective presents Costume Design: Inspiration and Impact
Speaker event with costume designers from SNL, Girls, The Good Wife and Orange is the New Black!
Thursday 4-8pm– APO presents Chipotle Comes to You
We’re not really sure who APO is, but they’re delivering Chipotle on campus this Thursday so they’re good in our book.
will dance for higher penncoursereview scores
Ever wanted to see your professors dance? Well they’re going to anyway.
2pm tomorrow in Bodek Lounge, à la Dancing with the Stars, participating student-professor partnerships will be boogieying for
victory your approval.
If you aren’t going for the hilarity/weirdosity, at least go for the learning opportunity—or, as Dr. Johnson puts it in a recent email, a chance to demonstrate some “awesome physics concepts.” Speaking of Johnson’s emails, seems like he already has some salsa under his belt.
Peep the event flyer here.
For all those good little Penn students everywhere setting up their Google calendars for the week: we sift through all those Facebook invites so you don’t have to! Speaking of annoying invitations, you’re welcome.
Today-Friday: PoCo’s Political Action Week
A whole week of politics!
Tuesday: Warby Parker Founder & CEO Speaker Event
You’ll probably be as disappointed as we were to find out his name isn’t actually Warby.

Happy homecoming week, babyquakes! Here are a few events to fill in those annoying empty spaces between darties.
TODAY: Panhel Presents Dove “Real Woman,” Stacy Nadeau
Listen to one of Dove’s Real Women spokeswomen speak about positive body image!
Wednesday: SPEC Connaissance Presents Matthew Perry
In light of our recent loss of the similarly named campus icon, this event may be coming too soon. If you can make it through the grief, though, doors open at Irvine Auditorium at 7:30pm.
Thursday: Seniors for the Penn Fund Homecoming Bash
Free booze ‘n food. Kenn Kweder will be there, so that’s cool we guess.
Thursday-Saturday: Penn Glee Club & Penn Dance Present Esspresspionage: A Latte of Trouble
Puns: we appreciate them.
Saturday: The Inspiration A Cappella Presents Low Key Suite
Because we know you were thinking, “damn, I’d kill for an a cappella show right now.”
Saturday: Penn-Princeton Football Game
You should probably consider going to one of these at some point in your four years.
What’s a kid got to do to get a flyer around here? This week, we were practically begging you to hand us flyers, while you stood and chatted in your little “clubs.”

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Yards Brewing Company and Little Baby’s Ice Cream are hosting A Pynk Affair, a charity event featuring a CONCERT BY A WEEZER TRIBUTE BAND CALLED “FREEZER.” There will be food and other stuff, too, but everything pretty much pales in comparison once you realize that somewhere out there exists a Weezer tribute band called Freezer.
If you’re down to get your 90s alt-rock on, head to Yards Brewery this Friday. Eat some of Little Baby’s new “pynk” ice cream and drink some “pynk ” ale. Wear pynk, live pynk, thynk pynk. Take the whole day to revel in all things pynk. It’s for a great cause! Side note: clearly they used all their clever name-picking skills on Freezer.
Thanks to Class Boards, SPEC Jazz & Grooves, A-Trak and Penguin Prison will make their Penn debuts September 21 on the College Green! Two EDM artists at one event? Not surprising. Quakers do love a good bass drop.
Penguin Prison remixes songs from artists like Passion Pit, Imagine Dragons, Lana Del Rey, and Ellie Goulding. He’s just like Girl Talk! (Too soon, SPEC?) You’ve definitely heard A-Trak before– don’t pretend your pre-frosh self didn’t watch this fifty times. Bottom line: his remixes are awesome and he’s done collabs with some pretty famous artists, so get ready to rage on the Green like it’s not the middle of the afternoon.
Skimmer Fest starts at 3pm on September 21. Still not convinced you should go? Check out the artists here and here. Your only other option that day is actually going to the football game, sooo.
In case you needed yet another Penn events webthing slash aggregator, check out EasySocial. But don’t close this tab just yet, because we want to know, seriously, is EasySocial any different from the rest? Well it turns out: somewhat!
ES—can we call it that?—catalogs not only your standard on-campus goings-on, but also those sometimes elusive bar specials and off-campus parties. Plus, it lets you post your very own events. If you’re still reading (god bless), here’s a bonus info nugget for ya: it was made by two Penn senior guys and honestly, who knows parties better, right?
So when it comes down to it, you’ve now got events@penn, TheRedCup, and EasySocial all at your disposal. Happy HapPENNings!
