    things to consider for all you complainers: – small budget – bargaining – band management being difficult- contracts/ broken contracts- school administration – p-safeyou all have no idea how much planning this shit takes. you have no idea how many ups and downs this committee has been through with performers including your dearly beloved MIA. it’s a concert. outdoors. with your friends. drink a 40. listen to some great performances. pass the fuck out and shut the fuck up. ps – the flannel is always kept at a minimum at our meetings.

    Don’t be so negative. Every year, some people don’t like the bands, some people do. Just get crunked the fuck up and it’ll be OK. Also, Hood Internet!?!?!? Swweeeeet (and for all you saying that they won’t appeal to the broader Wes population, try again… they rock that shit.)

    2:04, Adam Fishman,Fuck you both, I used to date one of the people on Social Committee a few years ago and they were a fuck of a lot more responsible than the people this year. I’ll stop stereotyping music elitists when they stop acting like assholes.

    why don’t you fuckers talk to one of the people on the board? It’s not like you just fucking call up RZA being all “Hey man I’d really appreciate it if you could come down in a few weeks to play at my fucking tiny school. sound cool?” You are children, small naive children who don’t understand how the music world or really anything in the real world works at all. Get your heads out of your collective asses and think about money and scheduling for once cause if you don’t soon you’ll just be suckling from your parents for the rest of your sorry ass ignorant lives.

    This lineup seems awesome! A rock band that’s actually going to rock (in the sense of playing guitars loud and fast), and hiphop that will be danceable. I’d rather see bands with those qualities while intoxicated on the hill than the TVotR or Deerhunter.

    ok, there is nothing “hipster” about the hold steady. they’re a rock band, a really mainstream-sounding rock band.i say let’s get some people on the social committee who will get some acts that are at least interesting and silly/crazy.

    Project Pat was rad. Clearly you don’t understand the importance of alcohol at Spring Fling.TV on the Radio was just a drag.

    1035 am dude,These stock descriptions of hipsters are really getting old: Pabst Bloe Ribbon drinking, Brooklyn gentrifying, Tight pants wearing, Cocaine snorting, irony-obsessed, cigarette-smoking, Joy Division-listening, ultrathin, ultra self-absorbed, elitist, etc. etc. Really. Find something better to do.Also, I can’t speak about RZA specifically, but hip hop at Spring Fling has been dreadful the last two years. Project Pat was a huge fucking waste of my time.

    10:35 – As a “flannel-wearing indie kid” I would prefer some Wu. The vibe with non-hip hop acts at Spring Fling is a buzzkill.also, peter third eye blind is playing at eastern connecticut.

    wtf i thought rza was coming????once again the social committee is overpopulated with flannel-wearing indie kids who can’t WAIT to gentrify bushwick wielding 40s who insist on bringing their new flavors of the week rather than getting someone who might actually appeal to the wider student body. fucking hipsters.
