Bacchanal Announces 90s Throwback Theme

Written by

If you’re looking for an excuse to hold on to some of your old Beanie Babies, you’re in luck—this year’s Bacchanal theme will be Baccha90s, according to Bacchanal VP Kay Sorin. We’re not sure where this will fall on the spectrum between Oasis and Spice Girls, so in preparation we’ll be cycling every Now! CD we have through our Walkmen from now until Saturday, April 14th to cover all bases.

Join us as we start arbitrarily start here:

Also: this year, Bacchanal is holding a contest for this year’s tee-shirt design. By 8 pm on March 5th, you can email PDF submissions to [email protected], subject line “Bacchanal t-shirt design.”

    Step 1. Book Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye.
    Step 2. Coax them onto the stage at the same time.
    Step 3. ???
    Step 4. Profit.


    What the FUCK

    This was supposed to be the year of Waka Flacchanal

  18. Also...  

    Shouldn't they be calling this "90's Throwbacchanal"

    Come Bacchanal, get your shit together.

    I'm personally involved in Bachanal, and I can say with utmost certainty that we have booked DMX.

    the theme never has anything to do with the acts booked. calm down.

  24. ._.  

    get will smith to rap the fresh prince intro on repeat.
    I'd be happy.

  25. La Macarena!?  

    But seriously, if I can't sing my heart out to the chorus of more than 1 song, then it's not worth it.

  26. Double Whammy:  

    Maya and Blackstreet Performing the Rugrats "Take Me There"

  27. YAASS...

    If the Bacchanal t-shirt isn't tie dyed so as to accurately rep the 90s I WILL CUT A BITCH.

    I can't down vote everything about the 90s enough

    mfw everything you babies remember about the 90s is just late 90s/early 00s http://i.imgur.com/xnhGz.jpg

  32. ActuallyRemembersThe90s

    Pop music from 1999 hardly counts as '90s music. How about one of the really good '90s rock bands like Smashing Pumpkins, or Silverchair, or Garbage?

    • Anonymous

      Umm, if you think that Silverchair was a "really good '90s rock band" then we have bigger problems to deal with…I am appalled that you'd even mention them in the same sentence as The Smashing Pumpkins. How well do you "actually remember the 90s"?

    the theme is just an excuse to get someone irrelevant and not book Lil B. The Based God was too busy skating the streets of Waterfront Berkeley to be making music in da 90s.

  36. nostalgia  

    S club 7, Backstreet boys (one/some of them?), N*sync, Britney, and Christina
    (Destiny's Child? we could never afford Beyonce but maybe one of the other ones)
    ohhh my childhood

    NELLY let's learn us some country grammar!

  41. ...  

    pavement? built to spill? the eels? the orb? orbital? modest mouse? 764-hero? jeff beck? sonic youth? aphex twin? thievery corporation? people under the stairs? guided by voices? the promise ring? the shins? up, bustle, and out? future sound of london? massive attack?

    please not some horrible pop... mainstream music in the '90s was fuckin horrible.

  42. aye  

    An Outkast Tribe called De La Quest.

    2 of those 3 shouldn't be too hard to get.
