Students are offered a chance to reveal their hidden musical talents at the Arts Society’s semiannual Cafe Night. This semester’s Friday night show, held in the annex of Gilbert’s, has been organized by Brendan Flood ‘13 and Daniel Kim ‘13.
“It’s traditionally dominated by music, but there are also poetry readings and other spoken-word performances that happen as well,” said Flood.
There is a large variety of performers lined up—students will be performing original poems, original rock blues pieces, purely improvised songs, covers of popular bands and ballads from musicals.
“Most groups, including the one I’m in with Brendan and James Moore ‘13, will be performing popular songs from bands such as The Black Keys and from musicals such as Once,” said Kim.
This Cafe Night also boasts something new—an unprecedented performance by the residents of MAFia, the Music Appreciation Floor of Ramer Hall.
This event, hosted by the Arts Society, has been put on since 2003 as a way for musically inclined students of all years and majors to show off their talents to their peers. It’s a mix of originals and covers, music and poetry, ranging from popular to obscure.
“It’s a laid-back, lighthearted atmosphere that’s always a good time,” said Flood.
