  SEC Big Spring Show with JFK, The Walkmen & The Postelles
Time: 7:00 PM

Location: Sports and Recreation Center

Skidmore College's Student Entertainment Company is proud to present: JFK of MSTRKRFT / The Walkmen / The Postelles.

JFK started off playing in a number of different Toronto based bands, his best known projects being Black Cat #13 and Death from Above 1979. Once Black Cat split, he formed his own 7-piece music project, Femme Fatale. Though the live band broke up, Keeler recorded all 3 of the released EPs himself, which were produced by longtime friend Al Puodziukas, with whom he would later go on to form MSTRKRFT. http://www.myspace.com/mstrkrft

The Walkmen is a rock band formed in New York in 2000. The band has released 4 albums of original material--including 2008's You and Me, which still sounds as fresh as the day it was conceived. The band has traveled extensively around the world in the last 8 years, but has always called New York home.http://www.myspace.com/thewalkmen

On The Postelles: SPIN: "The Postelles serve up a hooked-at-the-gills, head-bobbing rock'n'roll groove. And nowhere is their sound as refined as ..," the band's swaying new single featuring the production work of Strokes axeman Albert Hammond Jr."

Pitchfork:"Admittedly, the Motown-via-treble guitars still get my foot in action. It's a weakness. And, in the hands of the Postelles, it's also a strength."

Marga Gomez in Long Island Iced Latina
Time: 8:00 PM- 10:00 PM

Location: Palamountain Hall: Davis Aud.

Marga Gomez in Long Island Iced Latina "A woman to watch...A comic marksman. The show is a giddy 90 minutes with the deliciously cheeky Ms. Gomez." --The New York Times

HBO, Showtime, Off-Broadway and international comedy star Marga Gomez brings her award-winning show "Long Island Iced Latina" to Saratoga Springs for one night only. Marga's new play is a fired-up comedy for the dork in every Latino and the Latino in every dork. Comedienne Marga Gomez begins by sharing the cultural confusion and chronic virginity she experienced as the only brown girl in a white high school then switches gears to deliver an intoxicating manifesto for Latinos who can't speak Spanish, suck at Salsa and suffer from Blonditis. Gomez makes us think beyond even our best-intentioned stereoptypes, all while laughing hysterically at a story deliciously well-told. Co-Sponsored by Saratoga Arts and the Skidmore Pride Alliance

[4/10 - 8/7] Opener 19: Los Carpinteros
Time: 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Tang Teaching Museum: Wachenheim Gallery

Everyday things from domestic items to urban architecture permeate the work of Havana-based duo Los Carpinteros. Marco Castillo and Dagoberto Rodriguez's exquisitely crafted sculptures and drawings twist these reco'nizable objects into surreal amalgamations-a bed in the shape of a roller coaster or a building with drawers for windows-that beg us to re-examine these ubiquitous objects and our relationship to them.
