From a Fashion Show to International Pillow Fight Day, Some Great Events to get your Weekend Started

silence and noiseHow hot is Haute? Channel your inner Anna Wintour at today’s Silence and Noise fashion show, presented by Northeastern’s Haute Fashion Club and the Photography Club. This year’s concept is silence and noise, exploring the contrasting trends of minimalist and maximalist fashion. Northeastern students will model high fashion looks from student and local designers. The show begins at 7:30pm at the Fenway Center (77 St. Stephens) but Haute and NUPiC invite you to join them at 7 for cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, hors d’oeuvres a plenty, mingling, and music! Tickets are available free of charge on myNEU.

pink shabbatWhy is this week’s Shabbat pink, you might ask? To support awareness about breast cancer and Sharsheret, the non-profit organization to support Jewish women with breast cancer, that’s why! Both conservative and reform services will begin at 6pm, and a free, delicious kosher dinner will follow at 7pm. This event, cosponsored by Northeastern Hillel and Alpha Epsilon Phi, will be held at the Hillel center (70 St.Stephens St.) at 6pm.

boston pillowPermission to smack strangers with pillows? Consider your wish granted! This Saturday is International Pillow Fight Day, and Boston will be participating for the 7th year in a row! Show up at 2:55pm to have your pillow inspected (to make sure it is not filled with rocks or something) and get ready to go all out when you hear the signal to begin at 3pm. Last year Boston was the second largest pillow fight, with 1,200+ participants, so by attending you could help put Boston on the World Pillow Fight Map once again! The location will be announced at this website at 11:59 tonight.

This past week has been great, but it is time for SpringFest to come to an end with the BIGGEST concert of the year. This year’s concert will feature the opening act Cults and Cage the Elephant, with Kid Cudi as the Main event! Come witness this awesome lineup for yourself on Saturday at Matthews Arena; doors open at 5pm and the show starts at 6:30. Bring your ticket and student ID, and don’t forget to thank CUP for another great week of SpringFest programming!
