Come to the Fall Semester Big Show: Janelle Monae (October 1st):

Janelle Monae will be bringing her space-age funk to Skidmore College’s Sports and Recreation Center on the first of October.

From Press Kit:

“She’s been called ‘a different kind of diva’ by Vogue Magazine and ‘a true visionary… one of the most important signings of my career’ by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. [Her new album] The ArchAndroid is a soaring, orchestral trip enlivened with blockbuster vocals, mysterious imagery, and notes of 60s pop and jazz. ‘It’s an organic symphonic sound,’ says Monáe, who enlisted the talents of the Wondaland ArchOchestra to realize her sound. Elaborate orchestral arrangements were composed and conducted by Nate ‘Rocket’ Wonder and Roman GianArthur for Wondaland Productions. Featured guests include the legendary Big Boi of OutKast, renowned poet Saul Williams, the psychedelic dance-punk troupe Of Montreal and punk prophets Deep Cotton.”

“Eli “Paperboy” Reed and the True Loves will open the show.  Doors at 8 PM.  Come one, come all.

Tickets on sale now till date of the Show in Case Center or online at  brown paper tickets.
