Exhausted from the stresses of school? Destress with Yoga Isla Vista’s weekly candlelight flow class. Pop by their studio above Silvergreens for an escape from the stresses of everyday life and end your weekend strong. Set yourself up to finish the quarter in a stress-free and peaceful state of being. If you feel like engaging both your body and your mind, drop by the class this Sunday night from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Isla Vista’s favorite (and only) annual toga party is back and better than ever! This Saturday, the best of I.V.’s local music scene will be playing a twelve-hour concert (yes you read that right)! The trek out to the edge of town is certainly worth it to dance to some head-banging tunes. Grab your bedsheets and fashion yourself a makeshift toga and get ready to jam out to Careless Cub, The Mallards, Delta Dagger, Odd Army and tons of other talented local bands. Located at 850 Camino Lindo, come make the most of your Saturday and forget about real clothes. Togas are cooler.
When you have the chance to see a concert for the same price of a Yerba Mate, you simply cannot pass it up. Help support the brothers of Sigma Eta Pi this Friday and rock the night away with an entire night of homegrown tunes. The Framers, Hoodwinker Sunfish, Buildclub, Closeout and ADL will be playing throughout the night, with exact set times available on Facebook. Tickets are $4 presale and $6 at the door. Be careful about your neck and ears — or whichever gives out first — you might not get them back after this awesomely-long night of music!
