It’s been three weeks since Sepomana 2013, but we can’t stop taking about it at the station. Sepomana this year was a huge success. We sold over 400 tickets (a WRMC record!) and filled up McCullough Social Space before student musician Will Cuneo and his band opened the show.
Delicate Steve, a WRMC favorite, took the stage next and played an energetic set, getting the crowd excited and ready for the rest of the evening. They got the crowd to fall silent for the buildup in “Don’t Get Stuck (Proud Elephants)” and had everyone jumping up and down with their hands up in the air for hits like “Butterfly” and “Wondervisions.”
Baths came on next for his first set in support of his new album, Obsidian. He kicked his set off with fan favorites including “Maximalist” and “Aminals” and ended the show by giving the crowd a sneak peak at some brand new songs. In the middle of the set Baths said Middlebury was the “sexiest college audience” he’s played for. Good job, everyone.
Rubblebucket ended an already incredible night of music with one of the wildest sets WRMC has ever witnessed. Their performance came complete with neon lights, dancing robots, and a special guest appearance from the members of Delicate Steve dancing in what looked like glittery sleeping bags. The highlight of the night came during “Came Out of a Lady,” when the lead singer and trombone player jumped off the stage and played the rest of the song while dancing through the crowd. Meanwhile, their trumpet player was being carried through the crowd on an audience member’s shoulders.
Thanks to Will Cuneo (and friends), Delicate Steve, Baths, and Rubblebucket for an awesome night of music and thanks to Patrick Freeman for capturing it all on camera!
