Happy October! It’s officially spooky season… and I don’t just mean midterms. For this week’s playlist, I threw in some ODESZA, Hippie Sabotage, Moglii, and Bahamas for some chill vibes as you study for exams and draft papers.
The good news is, fall break is ONE WEEK away!! Go celebrate this weekend by stopping by the Lexington Night Market and Midnight Pancakes tonight!
As for arts events this week, we have a couple of big performances and talks coming up!
Monday, October 8th @7:30pm, MFA Carrick Theater
As part of Transylvania’s Creative Intelligence Series, actor, writer, and activist Dylan Marron will be giving a talk about turning online negativity into positive offline conversation through his podcast “Conversations with People Who Hate Me.” He is also notable for being voice of Carlos in the popular podcast “Welcome to Night Vale.” Rambler News Editor Rebecca Blankenship interviewed Marron this week in advance of his appearance.
Tuesday, October 9th @7:30pm, MFA Haggin Auditorium
“Considering Matthew Shepard” is a multimedia, choral drama performance that will feature a Grammy-winning choir from Austin, Texas, Conspirare, and composer and artistic director Craig Hella Johnson! Join them at 6:30pm before the show for a community resources fair and after the show for an open discussion with the composer. This concert is brought to Transy by the Dorothy J. and Fred K. Smith Concert Series and the New Frontiers series. Reserve your free tickets for the show on Transy’s site before they’re gone!
