Earlier today we told you about SPEC’s Battle of the Penn Bands. Almost immediately, an argument (Mask and Wig vs. any other musical group) raged in several passionate comments. Unfortunately, it will be awhile before we find out who will win, or even participate in, that part of Fall Festival. But there’s more to this event, which will take place on College Green Saturday, October 10. More than Penn bands doing covers of pop songs, you say? Why yes!
After weeks of trying to trick committee members into divulging the Fall Festival musical guest before the official press release, we finally succeeded. Fine, the official press release is out. Their lips were seriously sealed! Anyway, in what they hope will be the first many Penn-wide autumn dance parties, SPEC will present Super Mash Bros, a collaboration between Nicolas Fenmore and Dick Fink, who describe themselves as “Girl Talk’s hot cousin.” The up-and-coming mash-up artists are set to hit the stage at 6:30 p.m. Luckily for those of you who like to sing along to every word at a concert, all of Super Mash Bros’ music is available for free download here.
Also keeping you entertained at Fall Fest will be over 40 student organizations, inflatables, a free yoga session (gotta be flexible for the dance party), lots of food, and the cupcake truck! We’ll keep you posted with more information as it comes our way, but for now, let’s plan on meeting at the bouncy castle. We’ll be the ones jumping way higher than you.
