Aww yeah events!

Open Mic

This Tuesday will be Akbayan’s first open mic of the year! It will be from 8:00-10:30pm in the Spartan Memorial Chapel (located in between Spartan Complex, Yoshihiro Uchida Hall, and Washington Square Hall). For the current line-up, check out the facebook event here: 

Cultural Workshop

What is a Veterano? Don’t know? Well come out to our first cultural workshop of the year to find out! It will be this Wednesday from 4:30-6:00pm located inside the Almaden room in the Student Union. 

Everything Friendship Games related going on this week

Games practices are on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-6:00. We need more girls so definitely come out! This will be the last week to join games if you’re still on edge about joining or not. Also, you MUST sign a waiver before practice. No waiver form, no practice. 

Roll call practice is canceled on Tuesday so you can all come out to our open mic (info above). Roll call practices will resume on Thursday. You absolutely MUST turn in your waiver form and pay your registration fees by this Thursday and you MUST attend practice this Thursday if you still want to be a part of roll call. If you cannot attend this Thursday, contact one of the directors ASAP.

SPUF making will start this week. Contact Sam at for more details. Don’t know what SPUF is? Come out to a brief SPUF 101 on Wednesday 6:30pm after games practice hosted by Sam Manklang and Angie Tagal. 

Bay Area Fashion Week Show

Like fashion? Come check out this charity event going  on this Saturday night. This event is not hosted by Akbayan, but many members of Akbayan are helping out for it and part of the proceeds will go to Akbayan if you purchase them through our website(on the event tickets link)! 

Finally, I’d just like to thank everyone who came out to our first general meeting and Chevy’s fundraiser last week. Pictures will be up ASAP, as well as a video of last week’s roll call choreo for you to reference if you need any help. As you can see, there’s A LOT going on in Akbayan this week, so hopefully you can come out to some, if not all of them. Have a great week everyone! Sorry if this was so plain and text-filled, I promise to include more pictures on next week’s update.
