Last Night: Night Market

Written by


Bwog Fun Foundation Bureau Chief Sean Zimmermann attended last night’s Night Market festivities. Some pictures and a few notes follow.

The tea was not free. Such was our initial thought upon first entering Night Market, the annual celebration sponsored by the Chinese Students Club during which Low Plaza is transformed into Chinese street market. However, Bwog paid up for the not-as-free-as-we-thought-but-so-worth-it food as the performers took the stage, which ranged from the Notes and Keys to Chinese Yo-Yoers.

Of the acts, the most memorable was the latter, who thoroughly impressed the crowd with their performance. For the rest of the night, the Chinese Yo-Yo Club’s booth drew a crowd of students and a band of Morningside kids. The most advertised performers of the evening, PaperDoll, New York-based rockers who were so deafening that Bwog found their performance difficult to enjoy, though you could hear them clearly if you relocated to a safe distance (Butler). They were certainly an audience favorite though. PaperDoll were followed by colorfully dressed dancers, and then by Notes And Keys, one of Columbia’s a capella groups.

Though Bwog wishes we brought more cash, it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. More photos after the jump.

    Hi,

    I am Arusha, the co-founder and artistic director of Orisha Pan-Africa Dance Troupe. Orisha's picture---"colorfully dressed" group---is featured in this column. I was wondering if there are any other photos featuring my dance group from this event? If so, may I see them?

    Also, feel free to join our facebook group "Fans of Orisha" if you like what you saw at the show.
