Finding the Bright Spots in the Darkening Months

As the days get shorter and nights get longer Vermodernists must brace themselves for a New England season of leaf peepers, sleeping bag coats, and pumpkin spiced-everything.  However,  this fall there are several events and activities popping up that will allow mods and retro-appreciators to come out of their holes far sooner than Groundhog's Day when one hopes to look out and see the shadow of a Fred Perry logo. Here are just a few in the coming weeks:

Calling all DJs

For the Burlington-area music fan who all too often utters the phrase "there's nothing on the radio here" now's your chance to change that.  On Sunday, September 16th at 5:30 pm WRUV - the radio voice of UVM - is holding their fall DJ training session.

Put that collection of mod favorites together and let the world (or at least the local listening area) hear it!

The word Docomomo sounds more like the name of a chic Sushi restaurant than an international organization, but Docomomo stands for the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the modern movement.  The US chapter is holding their annual Tour day on October 6th throughout the country. 
Tour Day 2012

While there are no tour sites in Vermont this year, New England is definitely represented. Given it's a long weekend for some, this may be just the event to inspire some regional mod travel.

On Tuesday, October 16th Morrissey is slated to perform in the Green Mountain State at the Flynn Mainstage. We use the term "slated" because for as many times as we've actually seen the Mozzer, we've had tickets to shows cancelled last minute.  But fingers crossed that the man, myth, and legend who has defied classification will actually grace us with his presence! 

While these events are just a sampling of what's to come in the cooling months, Autumn in New England seems to be shaping up nicely. As always, if you know of any events that may be of interest to Vermodernists please feel free to contact us and let us know!
