It’s time for our exciting first look at NSOP 2008! Seems as if this year’s festivities will not include the traditional Orientation Concert on the Steps. You’ll recall that last year Clipse performed with the World Famous Vampire Weekend

A Columbia Concerts insider explained that it’s “not entirely clear” why there’s no concert, only that “we’re trying to put all of our eggs into the Bacchanal Concert basket, I guess.” He also promises that the Spring Concert will be huge.
