You Heard It Here First by Bryan

Short Skirt, Long Jacket

So last Friday, Baker House hosted their annual rock concert, Mega Band Party Plus.

Each year, they host a big concert in their dining hall where they have a bunch of bands come bring down the house at the lovely cost of $0 for all the students. This year’s lineup included:

Chicken Slacks
The Howl
Adrian Emberley and the Ladykillers
Michael Dylan and the Sleepwalkers

My freshman year, the headlining band was Piebald. They went on to become the greatest band of all time (well, not quite) but they did make a brief stint on MTV2.

Just a few pictures from the concert.

Another big concert coming in April will be Cake and unnamed opening act. Rumor has it that it will be matt pond PA. We’ll just have to wait and see about that though.

Last fall, Hot Hot Heat came to campus.

Last spring, we had Fabulous and Lloyd Banks. And the spring of my freshman year, we had Live.

Next year, I’m pushing for Cher’s 17th farewell tour or a Spice Girls reunion concert.

Zigga Zig Ah.

    That sounds like a lot of fun. I’d have to say i like the cher and spice girls comment, haha. I have to laugh at the mere thought of it.

  2. Sarah says:

    I love Cake. I saw the Ultimate Sunshine tour. If it’s the same then the opening acts are Gogol Bordello (who rock also, gypsy-style!) and Tegan and Sarah.

    Cake is great. My AP Chem teacher loved them so much that she’d occasionally burst into her own renditions of their songs. Usually, you could hear her singing “Sheep go to heaven, goats go to hell…”

    Spice Girls?

    Byran is so hot.

    And oh my God, I love Cake.

  5. Christine says:

    I am jealous about Cake.

    And I scandalously admit that I would so go to a Spice Girls reunion concert. It’s sort of an inside joke amongst my real life friends…
