Columbia and New York City are packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, and there’s never been a better time to experience it first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined.
You? Basing your life decisions off of your coffee addiction? never.
On a chilly Saturday afternoon, Bwog baby Jenny Zhu decided to break out of Butler for once, brave the first flurries of the Columbia school year, and stop by the Kingsmen K’winter concert. As winter approaches, some inevitable markers of the annual seasons come with it: swaths of new wintry snow, the impending doom of finals […]
Tamasha Rising is Friday, April 8 (tomorrow!) from 7:15 to 11pm, in Roone Arledge Auditorium. Held every spring by Club Zamana, Tamasha attracts over 1000 undergraduates, graduates, alumni, and parents.

Last night, the South Asian a capella group Columbia Sur had their annual showcase, featuring a cappella groups from colleges all over the Northeast. The event, titled “Zabardast,” was an exploration of Bollywood romance and a pretty cool deal, so we sent over Deepika Padukone enthusiast (and Bwogger) Nadra Rahman to check it out. Coincidentally, she can […]
In our continuing attempts at cheering you up through the power of music, we take a decidedly sadder turn with Bill Withers’ classic “Ain’t No Sunshine.” Ok yes, it’s a depressing song and the title may be a little too real a description of your last two weeks, but this arrangement and Bunge Okeyo, BC’13, […]
It’s finals and things are kinda dark. But why not cheer up with some musical stylings from the lovely boys of SHARP? Throughout the week, as you’re taking finals, we’ll give you some quick study breaks featuring the talented musical groups at Columbia. Here, SHARP honors the greatest musical genius of our time, featuring a […]
As Facebook won’t stop telling us, everyone and their mother apparently went on a rollicking trip to a beach–everyone, that is, except for those good souls who traveled for some purpose other than Ultra or visiting the fam. If you took some sort of alternate spring break trip, tell us about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here […]
While you were cramming for your first final, Notes and Keys, Columbia’s oldest co-ed a cappella group, performed on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live with the likes of Bon Jovi and Christina Milian (Kermit was also there, but he didn’t sing). A tipster tells us that the group was contacted by Universal Pictures to promote the […]
Bored? Where Art Thou? is here to help. There’s no better way to procrastinate studying for finals and writing twenty-page papers then seeing the many arts events on and off campus this weekend! If you’d like to help your fellow classmates delay their studies, submit your event to email@example.com. Thursday Fall 2011 Student Prints, 5 pm […]
New York City has endless opportunities to enjoy some truly magnificent (and other not so magnificent) works of theatre, dance, art, and music. But they’re all so expensive?! We know. Stay home this weekend and appreciate what free and not-so-free cultural experiences Morningside Heights has to offer. If you’d like your local (or not so local!) Columbia […]
Anyone looking for seasonal frights, an a capella singalong, free food, and puns galore usually has to trek to three or four campus events to complete that checklist. Tonight, though, look no further–Nonsequitur is throwing their NonSPOOKuitur (pun number one) Fall Study Break Concert in HalloWIEN Lounge (pun number two) tonight at 8:00pm. Uptown Vocal […]
Photo via Book of Face A capella groups are to college as semi-nude, older gentlemen are to Dodge on the weekends; they’re unavoidable, ostentatious, and often unwelcome. Among the multitudinous a capella groups on campus, many are better known for their provocative recruitment posters than their performances. Every once in a while, however, a group […]
