This could well be the most surprising Music Monday of all- because we have no idea exactly what Lindsay has in store for us… her namesake having just created a controversy at Foxwoods not withstanding- this chanteuse has been compared to Portishead, early day Cowboy Junkies and Shania Twain by various campus musicologists- Molly Stern claims that Lindsay taught Miley Cyrus how to twerk in Summer Camp. So… anything can and probably will happen.
Come in for a panino and a fruit smoothie and leave with an indelible mark on your mind.
We continue the fave acoustic series on campus this week with an appearance by Molly Rocket & The Crooks. They’ll bring all their funk and attitude in an acoustic setting. Come have a panino and a fruit smoothie and still be able to dance in your seat!
6:00pm until 7:00pm
This is a very special edition of Music Monday for us folks at The Red & Black. Our own Rachel J Rosengard is back for her 3rd show!! Last year, she played with 2 different guys in duos- Alex Ginsberg and Brendan O’Donnell. Both guys refused to quit the band- so this time out they’ll do it as a trio.
Alex was supposed to send the trio picture- but has not.. so we posted a pic from Rachel’s recent foursome.
They’ll still be covering all your fave indie-pop tunes and Rachel will amaze you with her uke playing-
Come for dinner- stay for the cool.

Come for dinner- have a fruit smoothie- rock on.

Music Monday has become THE place to be on a Monday night when you have a hankering for fine music coupled with a delicious cafe’ menu that includes fab grilled panini-delicious hot coffee drinks and frosty fruit smoothies- just to name a few items on the menu.
Alma is one of our favorite Wesleyan musicians. Her alternate tunings and deft guitar stylings; combined with introspective, world weary lyrics are a musical wonderment.
Call It Arson is a 5 piece rock act whose music has been lauded on the music blogosphere and in local papers alike. For this stripped down, acoustic performance they’ll leave the amps and drums at home, but bring all the fire and fury of the tunes in a more appropriate form for the cafe’. Come hear their fine original songs with a sprinkle of carefully chosen covers tonight at The Red & Black Cafe’- located in The Broad St Books Wesleyan Bookstore.
Have a grilled panino- a warm and delicious coffee drink or a frosty fruit smoothie and join the groove of Call It Arson.
