If you’re not already in line for black friday’s sales (which seem to never actually start on Friday anymore), come practice a bit with Big and Little E! We have our normal rehearsal in the green room this week and I hope to see you there!

Have a wonderful holiday!

Good evening pepband!
I hope your week 5 went well, and guess what…. we are half way thereeee, wooooh! We’re living on a prayer! So lets take our hands, and swear to come to rehearsals and gigs :) Or if that’s too much commitment, just show up to what you can! Anyways, here’s the lineup for this week.

Rehearsal

Pepband Goes to the Movies
When: Sat Nov 11
Where: Edwards Stadium in Mira Mesa (next to the 15 freeway)
Time: TBA by Neya
Who all loves seeing movies, especially ones of hunky super heroes??? I know I do, and we will be having a Pepband movie night this Saturday to watch the new Thor: Ragnorak movie! This is a pepitos funded event meaning that if you paid for pepitos, your ticket will be partially (or fully, depending on how many people attend) paid for by pepitos. If you aren’t a pepitos member, you can still come along! Fill out the attendance to say whether you plan to go and if you can drive :)

That’s all for this week, no gigs!

Good Evening Pepband!

It’s now the fourth week of the quarter, which means you have this week to decide if you’re going to drop that class you hate without a W on your transcript (just in case you forgot that was still an option). We have a BUSYYYY week this week, so come on out and have some fun with the band! It is SUPER important everyone fills out the attendance this week for Boo parade, so our wonderful PR Manager Allison can assign people to carpools. Thanks!

Where: Canyonview Pool
Closet: 5pm
Call: 5:30 pm
Friday night lights has a slightly different meaning at UCSD, where we don’t have a football team but instead have a SUPER awesome men’s water polo team to light up your night with (and usually Thursday nights instead). We will be cheering them on once again, so come on down!

Women’s Volleyball vs Cal State Monterey Bay
When: Friday, Oct 27th
Where: RIMAC Arena
Closet: 6:15 pm
Call: 6:30 pm
Got nothing better to do on a Friday night than jam out with the band and maybe get some food after? Then we are the band for you! Stay after if you need anything from the closet for the Boo Parade the next day or want to get food with some friends.

Boo Parade

It’s spooky time! It is our annual BOO parade, so get ready for some great costumes and making cute kids dressed up watching you smile! For the parade, we wear costumes: NO Hawaiians and NO UCSD pepband tshirts. Dress up as your favorite hero, villain, jar of mayonnaise, or anything else your heart desires. If you don’t have a costume yet, pepband members usually host a thrift store/ party city run the day or two ahead of the parade so check out the Facebook page for info on that. This gig is always amazing, so fill out attendance and go!

Women’s Volleyball vs Cal State Easy Bay
When: Saturday, Oct 28th
Where: RIMAC Arena

Are you still feeling yourself in your awesome Halloween costume from the Boo parade? Then come dressed up to our annual costume night! We make RIMAC as spooky as it can be with our fantastic costumes, so come dressed up with all your friends. Again, no need to wear the usual Pepband gear!

Well it’s a busy week, but it”l be a blast! Halloween is my favorite holiday so I’m really excited for this week!

Hello Pepband!

Welcome week is starting a little early this year with a SUNDAY gig! That is why this email is also a bit early. I hope you have all been practicing hard all summer! If not, come anyways to freshen up on the music!

Sixth College Kickoff:

Have you ever been to Sixth College? I have, and I promise its real! Come see for yourself and play some awesome tunes with the Pepband in our first Welcome Week Gig.

Closet: 10am
Call: 10:15am
Every year, King Triton hails from the heavens to inspire new freshmen to like sports and be spirited for once in their lives. Lets help them out and maybe Ms. Lopez will win something again (iPad? beats? a bike?) Come out to play!

Rehearsal:
Where: Green Room in RIMAC
When: Tuesday, Sept 26

If you still need practice (which I am betting you all do) come to rehearsal! Its going to be a short one to go over our favorite songs. This will also be a great time to meet new members and the new officer Corps!

Closet: 11:45am

Lets all come together to watch the new freshmeat do silly games, get sunburnt and dance! Maybe this year the judges wont screw Sixth college again (still angry about this). Bring sunscreen and water, this gig is always LIT.

Who doesnt like men in speedos? Come support our men’s waterpolo team on Wednesday with some Pep! No splashing allowed, but you may hear the flutes objectifying some well-respected men. Since we are all mermaids here under the eye of King Triton, this game should be great!

Although I won’t be in CA for these gigs, I will be with you all in spirit! Have a great start to the school year everyone!
