Fact of Penn life: if you make eye contact with anyone on Locust, you’re getting a flyer stuffed in your hand. At least you have a good supply of emergency notepads/paper planes/places to throw your gum? Luckily some of us actually read the flyers for you. All we have to say is GET YO EARS AND STOMACHS READY.
Some Penn students are super stoked that Tyga found time out of his busy schedule of slappin’ hoes and gettin’ faded to make our sweaty frat basement dreams a reality. From the ensuing Facebook group,flyercampaign, and multipleeditorials, it’s no secret that others aren’t so stoked.
If you were planning on hitting up the Quad moonbounce and then actually bouncing for another school’s spring concert, don’t hit up your friends at Harvard. Tyga is set to headline their annual Yardfest AKA fake fling AKA nice try but still lame. In light of his violent and objectifying lyrics, the Crimsons are crimson (too easy) with rage and have started their own protests.
The reactions at Harvard are just as mixed. “As if these kids aren’t the same ones drinking to ‘Faded’ every weekend,” one comment notes. No comment?
Happy Easter, merry Passover, and a holy Game of Thrones return to you! The egg hunt is (almost) over, kids. Stick around for the big announcement tonight at 7PM, as tweeted by the sacred SPEC secret-keepers themselves.
Stressing about how to manage your social life on Halloweekend right after Fall Break? SPEC-TRUM thinks seeing R&B artist Miguel in concert is a “Sure Thing.” Tickets are now on sale online and on Locust for $15 for their October 26 fall show, featuring Miguel and something called Phony PPL. If you wait, you’ll have to fork over $20 at the Harrison Auditorium (33rd and Spruce), where doors open at 8:30 p.m. Check out the music video for Miguel’s hit single “Adorn” above, complete with a sexy lady sipping from a water fountain, a sexy lady doing gymnastics in a yellow one-piece and a sexy lady wearing fishnets on her face!
John Legend took some time out of busy schedule to chat up with some old friends at his alma mater this morning. Check out this C’99 alum hanging out with Ben– so photogenic! We’re hearing reports that Franklin provided the requisite beatbox for Legend’s a cappella dubstep version of “Ordinary People.” Quaint! We can’t wait to hear it ourselves at the concert tonight.
Ah, the last few hours of class have finally wrapped up, which means you’re anxious for Fling to begin! Below, UTB provides you with a breakdown of this weekend’s activities. This is obviously by no means a complete list, but rather a sampling of what Fling has to offer. (In other words, we’re not tryna rain on anyone’s unregistered parade.)
Still Trynna See Jeff Mangum?–Well, you're in luck (maybe)! Around 20 or so more tickets are going on sale at noon today. Judging from how quickly they sold out last time (35 seconds), feel free not to tell your friends.
Wanna Get A Discounted Tycho and Beacon Ticket?– Yeah, we do too! Enter the promo code "justdive" here before 12 a.m. on Friday to get a dollar off the (already cheap) ticket. $4, man? SPEC Jazz and Grooves 4evr.
We’ll admit it: we have a crush on SPEC Jazz and Grooves. For their first show of the new year, they’re bringing in electronic artist Tycho and Brooklyn-based duo Beacon to perform at the Rotunda on Friday, February 3 at 8:30 p.m. Student tickets can be purchased online now or on Locust Walk beginning Thursday for just $5! Snatch one up before they’re gone.
