Last night there was a spoken word event at the Tang; sadly, I couldn’t stay for the main event, but I caught the opening act: The Artifacts, one of Skidmore’s most talented student bands. The Artifacts are Jonathan Wan ’12, Zoë Brecher ’12 and Leo Cancelmo ’12, three seniors with mad skills on their respective instruments (Jon on keyboards and vocals, Zoë on drums and vocals, Leo on guitar) and a sharp ear for catchy power pop tunes. What a treat to hear their set! I decided to forego the Tang’s ground level and watch the show from the balcony.
Here’s their opening number:
And here are some pics! If you want more of the Artifacts, here’s their lovely new single, “Be Someone,” on Bandcamp!
