We know the anticipation for Spring Fling is HIGH but the shows this weekend should tide you over until then!!! Don’t miss ‘em!
Battle of the Bands @ 200 High
The annual competition to decide which student act will open for Spring Fling is upon us. The winner gets to tell people that they opened for Rico Nasty for the rest of their life. Stakes are high but we’ll see who comes out on top. Here are your contenders:
BABE — three frosh who play some great energetic, grunge-y rock’n’roll
Buk and the Boys and the Big Ass Bass — Vabuk and his pals promise to bring the bass in a BIG way.
Mother’s Friends — Don’t know much about this act but we hear there are some cool WestCo frosh in the band, including our very own Sammy Osmond! Check ‘em out!
Kevin Holliday — probably the favorite to win, Kevin Holliday ‘20 is an incredibly talented musician and producer whose music sounds like the kind of vibe you want on a sunny day in Spring. Check it out below and we promise you’ll be hooked.
Sweetburger — A group of fun frosh who make songs about Pastabillities Tom among other things. The talent in this band is undeniable across the board. We’ll see how well they fare under the pressure of the penultimate spot.
Lopii — The Lopez twins make music filled with emotion and a powerfully enchanting energy. In some ways, they’re the spiritual successor to Wesleyan alums Overcoats. They’ll definitely make a significant final impact on the judges with their set.
