If it rains one more day, I am seriously considering building a huge ark, loading up two members of every varsity sports team on campus (and perhaps a few Leo’s staff members), and setting sail for Bermuda until global warming decides to chill out. Unfortunately, I don’t have nearly enough lumber to make this a realizable dream (and I think cutting down all those trees would actually worsen the whole climate change thing), so instead I’ve had to resort to seeking out the highest ground on campus possible to escape from puddle season.
So last week, when 20-year-old Londoner Alessi Laurent-Marke, dba Alessi’s Ark, came to campus for a Rolling takeaway show, there was really only one spot worth visiting. Perched high atop the roof of LXR, Alessi braved the impending elements and serenaded us with some gorgeous tunes as the clouds rolled in.
