If you’d like to advertise your Oktoberfest-themed event here, too, please email [email protected]


  • Quarto’s Literary Open Mic8pm – 10pm in 413 Dodge. The official magazine of the Creative Writing department’s monthly soirée. Sign up at the door to read your mom’s Twitter, a short play, some good ol’ fashioned prose and anything in between. There will be plenty of edible, in addition to audible, delights.
  • Postcrypt Coffeehouse Presents Folktober Fest: Open Stage, 7pm – 10pm in Wien Hall’s first floor lounge. Celebrate Folktober at Postcrypt Coffeehouse’s first annual all-student open stage. There will be a two song or ten minute maximum for each performer. All genres of music are welcome, but if you want to throw some slam poetry out there, they’ll take that too. E-mail [email protected] to reserve a spot or show up the night of.
  • CU Players Presents: Chase Scenes, Friday and Saturday at 8pm in the Diana Black Box (aka VagBox, or the Glicker-Milstein Theatre). Columbia University Players presents a night of scenes from up-and-coming student theater directors. Witness five scenes, all taking place in different times and directed in different styles, but centered around a common idea: The Chase. Free. Tickets available at the TIC.
  • Nomads presents Open Shop8pm – 10pm in Lerner E 477. A new weekly Nomads project to workshop new plays. The night will be broken up into two sessions: an open mic night, where anyone can feel free to bring some of their work, and a series of table readings from developing works.
On Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, Miller Theatre will host performances from the SONiC Festival, a new nine-day festival devoted to music written in the first decade of the 21st century by emerging composers age 40 and under. For details, visit www.millertheatre.com. Tickets are $7 for students.

    I'm sure I'm not the first to wonder why people keep spelling "Wien" as "Wein" despite the fact that it's carved in large letters on the lintel to the dorm, and in countless other places (Wien Stadium, anyone?).

        This criticism is not particularly constructive. If you actually have ideas about how to make this feature better, we'd be delighted to hear from you via [email protected]
