Remember when we wrote a light-hearted and clearly speculative post about some rumors to get pumped up about Bacchanal? Apparently Bacchanal didn’t find it as much fun. In response to an inquiry for a magazine piece about the organization itself, a Blue and White first-year reporter received an unexpected response from a board member:
“We at Bacchanal have decided not to give any special coverage to Bwog or Blue and White reporting this year. We were very upset when Bwog published a speculative lineup earlier this month without contacting our club in any way ahead of time. First of all, this promotes inaccurate information, and secondly, we are contractually obligated to keep performers names secret until a specific day closer to the concert. In all 4 of the past years I have been involved in Bacchanal I have never seen such disrespectful behavior from either Bwog or Spec. We felt it was very inappropriately handled, and because of that I will have to deny your request to speak with you about the piece.”
Unfortunately, it appears there won’t be any exclusive content regarding Bacchanal–apologies, all. Next time we’ll keep our speculative posts more speculative.
