Broken Social Scene and Flogging Mollygood golly

During the halfway point of October, smack dab in the middle of midterm season and when the weather makes the leaves and people change shades of color, the Brandeis community will be given a real treat. For those of us who will survive the first onslaught of exams and papers, and especially for those who wont survive, Student Events will present a two-day music festival that should prove to be the music event of the year. Those wrought with a case of the Mondays on October 16th can relax and enjoy the indie pop sounds of Broken Social Scene and Do Make Say Think;

those with energy to burn and in need of a kick of punk can skank to the sounds of Flogging Molly, Bedouin Soundclash, and Zox on October 17th. And for those who just love music, these two days will make Levin Ballroom seem like an oasis in the desert of the mid-semester overload of work.
