Not only do we feel obligated to keep you up on the latest Wellesley news, but also the latest music happenings… when they’re in Wellesley. Thus, this bit of news: Babson College is having its annual spring concert on April 20 at 8pm featuring Steve Aoki, a theatrical electronic dance music star known for more than simple heads-down DJing and apt to toss birthday cakes into the crowd, crowd surf and more (maybe Quebrada should give him a call?). Aoki’s latest solo album is called Wonderland, and he’s worked with others such as LMFAO and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo.
Tickets went on sale this week for Babson students for $20, with a 2-ticket limit. $30 tickets will be made available sometime before the show to non-Babson students if tickets remain (though non-Babson guests must be accompanied by a someone with a Babson ID).
If none of that made sense to you or isn’t quite your speed, note that Wellesley Symphony Orchestra also has a concert coming up. Its family concert will be held on Sunday, March 17, with an instrument petting zoo at 1:30pm, a show ‘n tell at 2:15pm and the actual concert at 3pm. Among the highlights: a world premiere performance of the original “The Legend of Longfellow Pond (and the Mysterious Gravestone).”
