Since its founding in 1964 by then-assistant chaplain Rev. John Cannon, Postcrypt Coffeehouse has remained “among a handful of really well run college venues of its kind.” Popular within the folk community both for the ridiculously cool space in St. Paul’s basement, and the dedicated crowds, the coffeehouse has hosted well-known artists such as Jeff […]
Ian Kwok’s sobering email to the members of Postcrypt Art Gallery confirms that Postcrypt has indeed been thrown out of their space in the basement of St. Paul’s chapel. Apparently the Office of the University Chaplain has been tightening their policies on chapel spaces for the past year or so, and sometime within the last […]
You’ve eaten your fill from three, count them — three feeding opportunities this morning. Now, put a cap on this glorious day with four, yes, four campus concerts. There’s something for every cynic. For those who’ve had enough of the sun or music written after 1950, there’s the air-conditioned Senior Choice Concert in Roone, put […]

Last night’s Postcrpyt show featured a breakout performance by a one Mr.Anthony Da Costa of Pleasantville, New York. According to eyewitnesses, Columbia’s next great folk-music lady-killer already has Postscrypters (men and women, actually) completely swooning. Oh, and he’s only 17 years old. In a move that only heightened his adorableness, he brought along his dad, […]
Here’s a quick round-up of all the goings-on of Columbia and its environs, happening right now: A notably dapper member of the Philolexian Society is currently standing atop the Sundial. He and others advertising for the Joyce Kilmer Bad Poetry Contest, which is happening on the 13th. A few yards over, on the Steps, Amnesty […]
The people of Postcrypt are advertising for an event tomorrow night by — how else? — erecting an homage to the Eastern Bloc, right on your College Walk. According an email from the club, the makeshift Berlin Wall is here for you to draw on, the theme for tomorrow’s show being “Propaganda.” There’s even a […]
Like the candidates’ commitment to service, Bwog’s commitment to free food never wavers.

All fans of alliteration will enjoy the Postcrypt Coffeehouse Folk Festival going on right now in Kent Lawn despite the fact that their tent is somewhat obfuscated by bleachers going up by Fair Alma. In addition to the music, the festival is home to glorious, freshly-made popcorn and thirst-quenching beverage. Acts for the rest of […]
If you’ve been oblivious to the many attention-grabbing efforts on campus (the chalked stairs in Hamilton are a nice touch), you may not have heard about the SCEG/Postcrypt gallery show going on right now, “Expanding Perspectives: West Harlem,” which opened Friday in the basement of St. Paul’s and features art by both Columbia students and […]
