Remix Your Weekend: One-Act to rule them all

It’s a bit colder this weekend, so Vox is going to give you the best events within a reasonable proximity. And since reasonable proximity translates to “on-campus” for 90% of Georgetown students, most of our recommendations are taking place between Prospect and Reservoir.

Friday

The Voice is throwing an open house at 4:30 p.m. in Leavey 424. And there’s free pizza, because we’ve never recruited new writers without bribes.

Check out Georgetown’s thespians in the Nomadic Theatre’s Night of One-Act Plays at 8 p.m. in the Devine Studio Theatre inside the Davis Center. This includes performances of Waiting for Philip Glass, Un-f**cking Believable, and Coax, whose plots are a mystery to both me and the cast members.

These plays sounds too groovy for you? Then walk to the adjacent Gonda Theatre, also in the Davis Center, to catch Robin Becker’s dance company perform Into Sunlight, a show about protesting war in the 1960’s. Okay, that’s probably even groovier than those one-acts, but it also starts at 8 p.m., so you can do some back-and-forth between both shows.

Saturday

Both Friday night performances will be happening at the same time, same place on Saturday night.

Georgetown Improv is kicking off the semester in Bulldog Alley (Leavey Center) at 9 p.m. It’s “unscripted” and “unrehearsed”. Hmm, sounds a lot like those one-acts (just kidding, an awful joke on my part). No, but really, you do not want to miss these witty Hoyas push their bodies and minds to mind-blowingly extreme limits. Well, I think that’s what they do.  Who knows.

Have you been doing serious damage watching Jeopardy recently? Then bring yourself and three other teammates over to the ThinkFAST trivia night in the Village C Alumni Lounge (11 p.m. to 1 a.m.). $200 dollars are at stake here, so you can pay off your gambling debts or buy an expensive text book if you think Wikipedia is still down.

Sunday

Witness the amazingly chill band Real Estate play at the Black Cat at 8 p.m.

Dream pop (?) band Twin Sister is doing a show at the Rock and Roll Hotel at 8 p.m.

There’s mass at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m., and 11 p.m.

One Comment on “Remix Your Weekend: One-Act to rule them all

  1. Is there going to be a Spring Concert this year?

    I noticed we didn’t get an email about voting (so there goes the democratic process). But after last year’s debacle, I wouldn’t be surprised if the funding for it was exhausted for the next couple of years. Transparency is usually a good thing though.
