Call and response

The kids at Wesleyan are brilliant.

They have their ears tuned to so much interesting music. Friday night they host Megafaun, a band with roots in Wisconsin, and now living in North Carolina.

This band joyously yokes a truly traditional feel, with a wild insistence that folk music (banjo, electric guitar, drums) is participatory music. Pete Seeger is smiling.

They are playing at a Wesleyan-only concert at Earth House tonight. Maybe if you're really nice to a student, you can wrangle an invitation.
