Wesleyan Phd student Bill Carbone is attempting to share the wealth of great music in and around the university with Middletown, through a new concert series at Public, on Main Street. The series is planned to run weekly, on Wednesday, at 10 pm.
This is an opportunity for the general public to catch some of the up-and-coming bands on campus (several of which have gotten national and international attention), and who often appear in for-Wesleyan-students-only shows on campus.
This week, on January 28, the series features Orquestra Fiebre, a 12-piece salsa combo with three vocalists.
Upcoming concerts include:
Weds Feb 11 - Buru Style, a dub reggae experience that blends the deep meditative grooves of Jamaican dub with jazz and electronic improvisation. http://www.myspace.com/
Weds Feb 18 - Red Wire Black Wire and The Yes Way. Modern pop. www.rwbw.com and http://www.myspace.com/
Weds Feb 25 - Precision Libido and Bottle Up and Go (tentative) http://www.myspace.com/
Weds Mar 4 - Buru Style with a very special guest TBA soon!
For the not-so-shy, each Wednesday begins with Karaoke at Public.
