USM Philosophy Symposium hosting benefit show Friday night

The Waldos will play the symposium benefit at the Empire Dine & Dance Friday nig

The USM Philosophy Symposium, our department's official student group, is hosting a benefit event Friday night at the Empire Dine & Dance.

In the spirit of Dionysus, the Greek god of ritual madness and ectasy, the symposium asks that attendees wear their favorite toga for a night of eclectic music and dance. The lineup features all local bands, including The Waldos, Video Nastys, Movie Knight, and 13CRYSTALSKULLS. Two of the bands include current and former USM philosophy students.

The 21+ event costs $5 at the door, and it starts at 9pm. All proceeds will go toward future symposium events like the upcoming screening of Marx Reloaded at SPACE Gallery.

In the meantime, here's a video of The Waldos playing at a crowded house show last year.
