Man, SPEC has doing a good job lately. Their latest great move was booking Clipse to perform at the SPEC-TRUM (Social Planning and Events Committee to Represent Undergraduate Minorities) Fall Show. Amazing. They’re just the best! You can read about the openers, including Hoodie Allen, and ticket information right here.
One thing we’re wondering, though: is Zellerbach going to be a good spot for this show? We didn’t catch Wale there last year but it seems like a strange venue for a rap show. Was it? Let us know in the comments. We’ll be there either way, but we’re curious.
And if you haven’t heard it already, check out their new single, “Popular Demand (Popeye’s)” featuring the one and only Killa Cam. The way they say “Popeye’s” in the hook is what the English language has been building up to ever since the letter P was invented.
Irvine Auditorium is such a sweet place to see anything, so we are really pumped to announce that SPEC is bringing The Walkmen to perform there on November 6th. They’re so cool and critically-acclaimed! Jangly internet darlings The Pains of Being Pure At Heart will open, and might be the most exciting part of this announcement. We caught them Monday at the First Unitarian Church and they put on such a tight, energetic show with so many shout-outs to the lead singer’s mom. ROCK AND ROLL. We know you’re trying to buy tickets RIGHT NOW but here is what SPEC says about that:
Tickets will be sold on Locust Walk starting on Wednesday, October 21 from 11 to 4 each day and will be available through day of show. Tickets may also be purchased online at upenn.tickets.musictoday.com starting at the end of this week. Tickets are available for $10 for Penn students and $15 to the general public. Doors for the concert will open at 8:00 pm and the performance is scheduled to begin at 8:30.
We have less than a month to memorize all of their lyrics so let’s start with this and that for the Walkmen and these two for the Pains and meet up on November 6th to annoy everyone around us just trying to enjoy the concert with our beautiful, beautiful voices.
