Indie Rock Easter Social

Because the last one was such a success and well, it's been awhile.

Congratulations, everyone; we did it! We survived a blizzard named after a cartoon fish. We endured Facebook feeds saturated with blizzard pics, Disney memes, and "SNOMG!" I'd like to think that we're a lot closer now as a city.
We've walked out into some strange bleached-white morning without motorcars, a bounty of pristine snow that we would later turn into igloos and retarded snowmen with a little encouragement from our 40oz friends.
Our lats are so ridiculously buff with all the shoveling and re-shoveling, and we've added to our collection of chairs (Thanks, street-chair fairy!). The roads were claimed by giddy kids on skis, snowshoes and insane joggers and we transformed greasy pizza boxes into makeshift sleds.

But a lot of us were stuck inside for far too long (did anyone NOT watch House of Cards?) and let's face it, we're fucking stir-crazy! Now is the perfect time to get out of our hibernation dens and rock out to sweet tunes and hangout with righteous dudes and dudettes.

Just like before if you feel inclined then make a short playlist of your favorite blizzard/winter tunes to share with everyone else, or just shit that you like to dance to. BYOB and snacks.

My apartment is much too small to host this type of event but because of my connections at Harvard I'm able to reserve a room large enough to make this awesome.

    Well, even though the Change the Date Rebellion was thwarted, I'm glad everyone had an awesome time! Sadly, I cannot say "At least I won money in Vegas." :-/ Anyway, can't wait for the next one!

    • Cassie L.

      They would've loved to come, eggs and all! But I don't think their mom would let her 5 and 2 yr old out to play with 20 and 30 somethings at Harvard :)

      I think if Chris tags himself 50% of the tags will be done. :)

      Rachel is the one you should be apologizing to. She was ready for the night to be magical.

    Hey guys, thanks for the interest, the turnout looks promising. This event will be in "Lehman Hall" it's super easy to find. I've copied a web address that shows the location. It's overlooking the "the pit" in Harvard Square, if you cross the street in front of the Au Bon Pain with the chess tables it will be directly on your left. After coming through the main entrance take a left and go up the stairs to the second floor. The room will be right there, so follow the music. http://www.dudley.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do?keyword=k73092&tabgroupid=icb.tabgroup111745

      Hi Greg, I'll be streaming from Spotify on my phone and I'll have a boombox with MP3 hookup so everyone can bring their devices to switch out. Feel free to send me your playlist on Spotify if you'd like. Looking forward to it too!

      March 30, 2013

    • Chris

      Jeff, I be bring a bottle of wine, r there cups or i Shld bring some?

  • Vip

    I have a question. Is this going to be a private event, or open for others on campus to join? Are there any other parties going on in the building or on campus this day?

    March 30, 2013

    • Vip

      Thanks for letting me know. I do appreciate the planning that goes into an event. However, a private party setting on Sat night is not for me. I would be interested in an open on campus event where others may join the party or I can join other parties.

      March 30, 2013

    • Jeff

      This is not an exclusive event, it just wasn't advertised on campus. Obviously, many people are bringing guests and no one will be turned away, but had I advertised through campus media along with the 50+ people from this site we'd be having serious capacity issues. And of course everyone is free to move on to other parties at their discretion.

      March 30, 2013

  • Dorise

    planning to try to make this at least for a bit!

    March 30, 2013

  • Erin M.

    It's my first time! Bringing my roommate, and looking forward to making friends - and future plans over music :) Thank you Jeff for putting this together!

    I might be coming. I have a party about....drunk PowerPoint presentations that night.

    February 27, 2013

    • Brian J. S.

      Not only do I not know Jeff, this will be my first meetup, I'm just naturally drawn to drunk people with computers talking to groups I guess.

    • Rachel H

      Haha, I guess I'll see you tomorrow Mystery Date. ;)

    My mom just asked me to go to a show with her on Saturday evening-- Peter Yarrow of "Peter, Paul and Mary" fame. Ughhh... So sad I'll have to miss out! Hope it's a great time.

    March 26, 2013

  • Jeff

    Hey guys, I'm really sorry that a few of you can't make it, but it's not realistic for me to change the date of the event when 44 people have RSVP'd. Remember anyone can host one of these events at any time!

    March 20, 2013

    • Mitch

      Chris, you forget that I/we are reaping no benefit! Haha. No, but I think Jeff knows I'm teasing him, I realize he wouldn't change it now. I'm just sad because these happen about twice a year. That's why I'd pleaded not to have it land on this rare unmakeable date for me (traveling out of state). But I'll try to set another social up for the spring. However, I don't have that Harvard connection.

      March 20, 2013

    • Rachel H

      That's 45, I forgot to RSVP.

    Best way to kick off joining this meetup I guess! Now all I have to do is remember 43 people's names in the span of a single night =P

    I see two more folks in the change-the-date club! Come on, Jeff, the rebellion is just going to grow... plus I'm pretty sure another blizzard is called for March 30. ;-) Change the date!

    March 20, 2013

    • Kenneth

      You should make a meetup group called change-the-date club, create an event, and then everyone can join and just keep asking to change the date. The first meetup for that group is on March 30th.

      Mitch, you should start a meetup for people who want Jeff to change the date of the meetup!

    Love the enthusiasm for this, everyone! 33 attending so far. This really is a great way to get to know each other; meeting up at bars before shows is great but yelling across a table in a loud bar is not the ideal way to have a conversation. Hope all of you can make it!

    1 · March 6, 2013

  • Mitch

    Reply here if you are incredibly stoked for this meetup but need Jeff to change the date because you cannot make it on March 30. Join my Bitter Rebellion! Together We Can! :-)

    P.S. - No HARLEM SHAKE on your playlists! I'm serious, I'll throw you out. Don't test me.

    Ok, it's become pretty clear which date works for most people so let's go ahead and plan this for Saturday, March 30th (sorry, Mitch).

      Ok, Wendy, hope you can make it.
