Tune In Tuesdays: This Year's Music Mondays
The Music & Entertainment Industry Student Association (M.E.i.S.A.) has made the switch from Music Mondays to Tune in Tuesdays.
The event kicked off Tuesday Sept. 18, featuring two campus bands, Electric Sorcery and The Sanford Blackout.
The doors opened at 7 p.m. in ASAC 100 and music began at 7:30 p.m. Electric Sorcery, minus their bandmate Luke Laplant, played the first set with a guest appearance by lrie Campbell, lead singer Derek Campbell's young daughter.
Electric Sorcery's drummer was pleased with the event.
"It was really tough for me to see because of the lights how many people were out there," said Micah Carbonneau, "but it felt like it was a good house."
The bands were set at the back of the room rather than using the stage. It created a more personal, informal feel for the show as dancing fans of The Sanford Blackout nearly encircled the three bandmates during their set.
The Sanford Blackout was also happy with the event but said they would've liked more room for dancing.
Both bands played great sets, but with the popularity of last year's Music Mondays the question stands, why change to Tuesday nights?
According to one M.E.I.S.A. club member responsible for coordinating this year's music nights, security had something to do with it.
"Public Safety actually asked us to make the switch to Tuesdays," said Christina Cadorette, "They have more people on staff during those hours so we were trying to accommodate them and trying to make the best out of it for everybody."
There is also some concern over the possible conflict between scheduling of CAB-sponsored movies beginning at 9 p.m. and the music nights typically ending at the same time.
"I think there may be a little bit of an issue, hopefully not," said Cadorette. "I think you'll see people here for the first half of the show and then maybe leave for the movie,"
Cadorette said that the conflict may be something to look into for future events, but for now she is focused on making the music events happen and getting the school more involved.
If you would like to join in the planning of Tune in Tuesdays or get more information on the happenings in M.E.I.S.A. you can find them on Facebook and Twitter and at their bi-weekly meetings Wednesday nights in ASAC 216.
