Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Society for Creative Anachronism (what you probably refer to as SCA), is hosting its near weekly event outside of the Rotunda. Don your Medieval best and enjoy some free snacks, interesting conversation, and Renaissance raging. Not to worry, loaner costumes are on hand for those who left their chainmail at home with their winter coats.
You might spot a few familiar faces contending for the title of Philly Mag’s Best of Philly 2012. You might not, though, which is why we’re gonna go ahead and point ‘em out for you.
First, we’ve got our very own (we use this phrase loosely as only about 5% of Penn students have ever been there, and only about 2% on purpose) Rotunda in the running to be named Philadelphia’s best Indie Music Venue this year.
Second, the Morris Arboretum’s “Out on a Limb” exhibit is up for the most Fun Place to Take the Kids. But you’ll be the judge of that, won’t you?
Cast your votes for these and/or other Philly hotspots right here. And then wait 24 hours to do it again!
You wanna know what’s hapPENNing? Spring Fling is happening. That’s it. Boom.
(Just kidding. The world doesn’t stop entirely for Fling! Read on for other cool events this week.)
Red Giants and Fat Panther at Smoke’s
Who: Red Giants and Fat Panther
When and where: Tonight, 10:30; Smoke’s
Why: Well, it certainly is an excuse to start Fling on a Monday. Not that you need one.
We’ll admit it: we have a crush on SPEC Jazz and Grooves. For their first show of the new year, they’re bringing in electronic artist Tycho and Brooklyn-based duo Beacon to perform at the Rotunda on Friday, February 3 at 8:30 p.m. Student tickets can be purchased online now or on Locust Walk beginning Thursday for just $5! Snatch one up before they’re gone.
How was your Thanksgiving? That’s good. Ours was fine. How was your Black Friday? That’s good. Our was fine. How was your weekend? That’s good. Ours was HORRIBLE because we procrastinated and now we have 20 papers to write. Tell us it’s going to be okay? Smiley face?
SPEC Presents: Baths
Who: SPEC Jazz and Grooves
When and where: Wednesday, 8-11 p.m.; Arch Auditorium
Why: Baths, Ki:Theory, and Anamanananmanamnanamananaguchi will be coming to Penn on Wednesday! It’s gonna be puhretty cool, since Baths is radder-than-thou. Ki:Theory and Anamanaguchi are also coming! And the gold and silver awards for worst band names go to…
It’s Sophomore Skimmer day, whatever that means. Waiting outside in the cold for some cupcakes? Go Penn ’11!
Some Penn kids are planning a spooky event at the Rotunda for February’s upcoming Friday the 13th. Think The Craft…goes to college! According to the craigslist ad, they’re looking “for paranormal specialists (i.e. psychics, fortune-tellers, tarot card readers, ghost hunters, voodoo experts, spectral enthusiasts…) and people who have been contacted by the spirit realm.” Psychic mediums, that’s your cue!
