Anyone who came to either of our fall concerts knows that the Mixtapes have had an AMAZING year so far!! We want to thank everyone who came out and supported us and especially our wonderful new members!! But there's more good news! The Mixtapes are looking for some incredible new guys to join our hilarious and awesome ranks. We need tenors and basses (and beatboxers), so come on out! Auditions are Thursday the 31st from 7-10 in GCASL (or G-castle, as some people cleverly call it), in the basement practice room C-91. Whether you audition or not, definitely stop by and say hi to us at Club Fest on Tuesday!! (That's the 29th, in Kimmel E&L) See you soon!

Our auditions are September 12th and 13th, from 6-9 PM, in the Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life, in the basement NEW practice rooms, suite C81. Come audition, say hi, or just look at us awkwardly if you want (that last one might be a bit weird for everyone… I'd rethink that). See you then!
