Your Abacchalypse Lineup Is Snoop Dogg and Das Racist

Written by

This happens here in 29 days

We’re not joking, just joking, we are joking, just joking, we’re not joking: much-hyped and utlra-hip “we’re kinda like rap/noise/pop” hip-hop duo Das Racist and Calvin Cordozar Braudus, Jr. aka SNOOP DOGG will perform at this year’s spring concert. The winner of CU Records’ Battle of the Bands (to be chosen on April 15) will open for them. And guys, it’s not a competition with Brown. These guys are the stuff of Bacchanal lore. Snoop was in an animated cartoon with Ghostface, and features Wiz Khalifa on his latest album, and then there’s Black and Yellow (sound familiar?) Let’s just hope sharing the bill with Das Racist doesn’t provoke any weird fake beef. Anyways this year’s Bacchanal’s theme is Abacchalypse, so whatever you think of the music you should get fucked up, ‘cause the world’s gonna end right? As per tradition, the good people at Bacchanal will host a film screening on 4/20, a week before the concert. They’re showing The Dark Side of Oz and it will be trippy.

In the meantime, try to pay attention in school kids, we know it’s hard!

Co-Presidents Alex Kirk and Jody Zellman, and Concert Chair Dan Weinstein fielded some of our questions…

Who was the most excited out of you guys about the line-up?

Jody: Professionals don’t show emotion. Right, Charlie Sheen?
Alex: I don’t think any of us were more excited than the others, we were all pretty stoked about having Snoop and Das Racist come. We’ve been working really hard on this for the last few months and we’re just really happy to have both artists come to campus.
Dan: Snoop Dogg.

What happens if an a capella group wins Battle of the Bands?

Jody: We’ll be having a bake sale to cover transportation costs and the concert will be in Wein Lounge.
Alex: No sound check.
Dan: We’re gonna make them drop it like it’s hot.

Are Das Racist racist?

Jody: Half the time they are Racist and the other half they are Das.
Alex: Everyone’s a little bit racist.
Dan: Are you racist?

Do you have any comment on this?

Jody: The keytar saved America.
Alex: Is Dr. Dre a doctor?
Dan: I think they got the title wrong.

What swag can we expect?

Jody: We threw everything we had (in addition to what the councils generously gave us) into our line up. Plus, the staging, production, tech, security, accouterments/transportation for artists, etc. costs a pretty penny (a huge, gold-plated, diamond-studded penny). In other words, swag is TBD.
Alex: A contact high.
Dan: There’s still some time to figure it out. Make requests.

Is the world really gonna end?

Jody: The world ended on Friday.
Alex: Someday.
Dan: What?

    this is liteally the worst possible line up............lets get some actual artists..... i was excited, but this is SO LAME. look at our line up vs Penn, Yale, other ivies.....THIS IS A JOKE........

  14. meh  

    I would have rather had a couple good (but cheaper) bands than snoop dogg. He's a fun guy but has he actually produced any good music in the last 10 years? (without a collaborator)

    April FOOLS!!!!

  16. WTF  

    Please be a joke.

  17. April Fool's Joke.  

    *sigh* Why do you build me up, Bwog, just to let me down?

    This is an April Fool's Joke.
    Snoop Dogg was chosen because he was so hyped up from the Bulletstorm promotion, Das Racist was chosen to allow for your JK bit (because we all know you're just joking). I appreciate that you took the time to think carefully about this prank - I mean it's a lovely combination, really... but no ):

    haters gon' hate

    Eww snoop dogg really?? uch. And I missed Of Montreal, a band that actually makes real music. Oh well, I've got three more years.

  20. CC'11  

    I am so afraid that this is just a joke....

  21. it's just sad  

    to watch people pathetically complain that the headliner for a spring festival where the whole point is to get fucked up and have fun is too big a name. It's not an indie band concert; the point is not whether the musician had high ratings on Pitchfork. And don't pretend that you wouldn't be railing against Bacchanal and the administration if they picked someone that most students hadn't heard of!

  26. CC '11  

    I won't believe this until Saturday. The odds of it being an April Fool's joke is just way too high.

    meh. snoop is gross

  32. hypothetical question  

    presumably, bacchanal booked this way in advance, i.e. before the bulletstorm contest. What would have happened if we won that contest? would we have snoop and another big name? was bulletstorm rigged because of this? ANSWERS I NEED ANSWERS

    • pretty sure  

      they're entirely separate. Had we won, we would probably have had two Snoop Dogg concerts (or they would have cut him loose from Bacchanal). What's amazing is that the Bacchanal people must have been trying so hard not to laugh while we killed ourselves to vote every day for Snoop on Facebook!

    Can you please change the picture

  34. That Guy  

    Who's that? BROOWWWNNNN. DAS RACIST GRHHHHHMMMAYYEEAHHHHHHH

    but it's gonna be hard to top Ghostface. There isn't anyway I'd pay outta my own pocket to see Snoop, so lets just take what we got and be happy; there is no going back. And oh yeah... ITS FO' FREE.

  35. snizzle dizzle

    Alright so I want this to be true but c'mon...Bwog posted this EXACTLY at 12 am? Gotta be April Fool's. Well I hope not but for now I'm saying it is..better keep expectations low.

    • use your cranium  

      bwog posted this exactly at midnight because it was officially announced by bacchanal committee at havana central at midnight. bwog was privy to the information before hand most likely, but was not allowed to post it until it was already released. not an april fool's joke.

  36. '11  

    why are people hating? at least it is someone people have heard of. i personally love snoop dogg. sure he may have "sold out" but what artist doesn't these days? they want money so of course they'll do whatever to make money. just quit complaining because it is someone people actually know unlike the previous years. and its FREE.

    apparently nothing makes you people happy. -_-

    • because...  

      some people don't like really shitty rap music. someone on here is complaining about Of Montreal's songs sounding the same...okay, maybe true, but doubly true for this guy who just speaks a bunch of bullshit "lyrics" in a monotone about getting high and fucking bitches to a low bass line.

      Snoop Dogg is a joke, I don't know why people actually listen to him other than he comes across and sells himself to be some sort of hip badass.

      I don't really like Of Montreal, but there are plenty of "indie" bands that a huge population like -- uh, Vampire Weekend? come on. this is so stupid. also, Das Racist looks to be the Of Montreal of rap music, so whatever.

      • '11  

        we deal with your indie music all the time. its so easy to invite them to be on campus. i swear tons of indie bands come to place here for anything.

        let us have the "shitty rap" music since we let you have all the indie shit you like.

        • uh  

          What? What indie shit do I get? The rap artists always outnumber the others at Bachannal. Anyways, don't you people like things other than rap music anyways? Yes, rap and indie music are the only things that exist ever.

          If they can afford Snoop Dogg, they can afford a legit band that a lot of people listen to.

  37. i definitely wish this were april fool's  

    but why would it be? announcing a fake line-up as an april fool's joke is only funny if the line-up is implausible. Announcing a realistic one, and then changing it, would just be sort of bizarre.

    What is up with your site Bwog? I don't get this April Fool's thing

  45. Anonymous

    A look at Snoop Dogg's website shows that he is playing Baltimore,MD on April 29th with no show planned for the 30th. Make of this what you will.

  46. great reference

    We’re not joking, just joking, we are joking, just joking, we’re not joking; HAHAHAHA JK - Das Racist :D

    and snoop dogg lehgooooooo

  47. Dark Side of the Rainbow  

    not Dark Side of Oz. Right? Anyone? Appreciate the 420 celebration, but get stoner culture right, Columbia.

  48. Like what Twitter get  

    Sick of arguing with white dudes on the internet.

  49. ...  

    i'm at the pizza hut.

    You know, for everyone complaining, you live in fucking New York, go see your shitty "of montreal" concert in Brooklyn but be happy you have someone good performing.

    • c'mon  

      seriously, "Of Montreal" is not a very widely loved indie band. us people complaining actually like a really wide range of music, some of which people who also happen to like rap music also happen to like.

      there is a lot of good music in the world, a lot of which is actually musical and not just a misogynistic asshole mumbling. why don't YOU go see Snoop Dogg and get someone with some actual talent on stage to play for Columbia.

      Since when is Snoop Dogg good?! You have got to be kidding me.

    I've vowed to model my behavior towards women after Snoop Dog. I am currently building a stable of whores, so if any of you lovely bitches would like to join please let me know. I'll have to check out your doggy style before any decision is made, but this is intended to promote a fair selection process. Remember, only one lucky girl can be my bottom bitch. Keep it classy Columbia...word.

  53. seriously...
