YOUR 2012 BACCHANAL HEADLINER IS BIG GIGANTIC

Big Gigantic will be headlining, with Wavves and Curren$y as the opening acts. Spicy Special will be the student group opener. Seeing as the theme is Baccha90s, we were sorta expecting someone from not this decade too, but whatevs. It could be worse. So get psyched—the concert is only two weeks away!

      @Anonymous So I guess we’re supposed to be mad because we didn’t ask Snoop to come back?

      I’m confused what everyone is getting their panties jammed up about. I don’t really listen to any of these guys, but they all seem like they’d be fun to listen to live. Unlike Snoop.

        @Anonymous No, Bacchanal was just supposed to invite at least one band from the 90s after hyping up the Baccha90s theme. Huge wasted budget aside, they may be decent performers. So? We came to Columbia so that we could brag to our peers, not have great experiences. None of my friends back home will know who Big Gigantic is either. weaaaaaaaak

        @Anonymous Unfortunately our student life fees fund Bacchanal. ESC/CCSC/SGA/GSSC need to work on this next year. Bacchanal needs more oversight from the councils.

        1. Anonymous says:

          @Anonymous Yep because the councils are totally the one to make sure events are cool, right?

          1. Anonymous says:

            @Anonymous No I agree, which is what needs to be changed. The councils have the power to bring the selection of performers to the students. The councils also are more knowledgeable about where the ~$100,000 in allocation that Bacchanal gets each year is spent. There needs to be more transparency regarding that spending. The councils and the governing boards and work together on that.

      @Scott Pilgrim Did you know that the original name for Pac-Man was Puck-Man? You’d think it was because he looks like a hockey puck but it actually comes from the Japanese phrase ‘Paku-Paku,’ which means to flap one’s mouth open and closed. They changed it because they thought Puck-Man would be too easy to vandalize, you know, like people could just scratch off the P and turn it into an F or whatever.

  • in defense of bacchanal says:

    @in defense of bacchanal I know this is going to be downvoted to oblivion, but I can’t help but say that I’m disgusted at this reaction. Is it so hard to appreciate a free concert? Like, not every school does this for their students and I think it’s pretty fucking cool that we have an opportunity to see up and coming bands for free without leaving campus. Which brings me to another point. Have you complainers never been to a music festival or any kind of concert in general? Sure, you usually go for the headliners but there’s always a ton of great opening acts who you would have never heard of had you not seen their set. If you want to be stuck in a musical rut and only listen to the same big name bands over and over and only want to see those bands perform, that’s fine but recognize that others enjoy discovering new artists and that such discovery has value. If the music’s not for you, that’s fine. No one is making you attend. In fact, for those of you who are complaining it would probably be best if you not attend, seeing as you’ll either just be a negative presence in a positive atmosphere or else you will show up entirely wasted and just ruin the experience (and the shoes) of people around you.

    So all you bitches who are complaining should stay home, Bacchanal doesn’t need you. But for people who love live music and the concert experience, come on out. I’ll be front stage and digging on some Wavves. Come dance with me.

      “Is it so hard to appreciate a free concert?”

      Umm we pay for this through Student Life fees. Definitely not free.

      “Like, not every school does this for their students”

      Most schools that I know, at least east coast ones, have some sort of spring concert

      “recognize that others enjoy discovering new artists and that such discovery has value.”

      You don’t go to Bacchanal to discover new artists. You go to get drunk and scream out lyrics with your friends.

      That said I’m psyched about Curren$y and Wavves. Big Gigantic though? Really Bacchanal? As a headliner? For shame.

      Bacchanal puts on an amazing show with the limited budget it has. Sure, I would love more big name talent too, but there are a lot of factors that go into this. If you really want a better Bacchanal next year, petition the school to allow the concert date to be moved later and not conflict with Coachella

            @SEAS 12 How did money become an issue with Bacchanal again?

            The councils did away with Outdoor BBQ so that the money could be folded into Bacchanal’s budget. The purpose was to invite more well-known bands, but somehow we’re back to the same craptastic spring concert as pre-Snoop.

            Is this a conspiracy, or is the school cancelling expensive events and using the student life fees to pay for non-student related bullshit?

            TL;DR: I hope this school burns down

    @Anonymous People complaining that we didn’t get Tiesto or Sean Paul or Cataracs or some other shitty bro act…I am disappointed. For a moment I thought I went to a school with more discerning ears than those of frat boys.

    1. You're an idiot says:

      @You're an idiot None of that music is “frat music,” you filthy hipster. This music lineup sucks, and everyone knows it.

        @Anonymous First of all, Big Gigantic is doing more on stage than Tiesto would be doing, I.E. playing live drums and saxophone leading to a much better performance. Snoop Dogg may have the name, but Curren$y’s music is actually pretty similar, lyrics-wise and he’s not just riding on the success of a name (think about Snoop’s verse on “California Girls,” just awful).
        Finally, Wavves is a premiere indie-rock band who I haven’t seen perform a bad show. They’re bat-shit crazy on stage and their music is pretty easy to listen to and sing along.

        If you’re saying these acts suck, you’re just not doing your research and, consequentially, sound uninformed

          @Anonymous Did you just not only compare Big Gigantic to Tiesto, but also suggest that it would be better to have them? Really? Let’s see how many Columbia students agree with you… My guess is the 5 fuckwits who chose this. I don’t care what Tiesto does on stage, he could just play music from his CDs for all I care – it would still be Tiesto.

    @Anonymous What do these artists have to do with the 90s again?

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Hater gon’ hate. No matter what the lineup would have been, the same amount of complaining and whining would have persisted. Though I loved Snoop Dogg last year, I get that not everybody is into that. With these three unknown and diverse groups, there is so much more of a chance that more people will be into it! Just because these bands/DJs aren’t famous does not mean they suck!
    If you want to pay for a concert, there are millions around New York. Not everybody at Columbia can do that, though, and I am happy to have these for free. Big Gigantic is good, btw. I’ve listened to him and he rocks. So bass heavy xD If Wavves and Currency are as good as he is, I’m gonna have a wonderful time :D

    @Anonymous This is absolutely one of the most embarrassing headlines ever. It’s pathetic that Columbia’s bacchanal committee or whatever can’t even scrounge up someone that anyone on this campus has even heard of before. Especially when every other school, especially the other Ivies, have way better concerts. Why even try? We should just not have a concert and donate the money to AIDS. Go big or go home.

      @Anonymous Why did we pick Columbia? Because it’s our Ivy, the best type of Ivy for us. I’m happy with this decision, it fits with how Columbia students are always ahead of the curve.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous WRONG. If we had someone good (or even someone anyone had heard of), a lot less people would complain. It really is that simple.

  • Damn says:

    @Damn people in syria getting massacred, entire african countries starving, and we’re here complaining about the spring concert our $50,000 ivy league college sets up for us. a student at columbia bitches about curren$y while a child in Haiti just really wants some water.

    you.
    fucking.
    people.

      @Anonymous Look inside yourself and ask whether you don’t have a thousand petty thoughts about your everyday life and problems day in and day out. One can’t expect every public discourse, even a spirited one, to have in mind the relative gravity of the situation. It’s a fact of life. TL;DR: Don’t be so naive.

    2. Anon says:

      @Anon Seriously, stfu. Can’t I be worried about the world’s problems AND this lineup? Stop acting like we’re all immature kids, we obviously know this isn’t the biggest problem in the world…

    3. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous If who we got for Bacchanal held any bearing AT ALL on whats going on in syria, then maybe you’d be right. Otherwise, spare us the self-righteous bullshit, or better yet, sell you’re fucking computer and send the proceeds to help feed starving people in Africa.

      you.
      hypocritical.
      bastard.

  • Hot Spitta says:

    @Hot Spitta I no longer can say I’ve never had the feeling of winning a raffle prize. Because thats what I feel like right now. I FUCKING LOVE CURREN$Y (no homo though). what were the chances that he would perform here when nobody on this campus knows who the fuck he is except me and a handful of others. this is great. thank you bacchanal people. oh and fuck you bacchanal people because if this performer was someone as obscure as currensy and i didnt actually like the person id be pissed as shit, like if we had wavves or big gigantic come. oh wait.

    1. Bro... says:

      @Bro... Curren$y’s not that obscure, and you’re not special for listening to his music

      1. Hot Spitta says:

        @Hot Spitta Damn man can i live?? youre right though. I got too excited.

  • Krissy G says:

    @Krissy G Dude Bacchanal is gonna be sick this year! There’s a great diversity of music, with rock, rap, and electronic all represented in the line-up. I’ve seen both Big Gigantic and Wavves live multiple times and they put on a great show. Just appreciate that you get one free show each year – it doesn’t always have to be the most mainstream artist…open your mind to new music and just enjoy it!

    Peace and love

    1. It says:

      @It is NOT FREE. We pay over $600 in student life fees for Bacchanal.

      1. anonymouse says:

        @anonymouse Actually, most of that is distributed among a large variety of clubs, events, and services… Including the gym. Don’t know the actual number, but I would imagine that it’s a much smaller fraction of that $600 than you think.

I so sad now :( :( :( moral of my story? -never rely on columbia to do anything right. wtfffffffffffff mannnnnn seriously Bacchanal?! we were ALL brought up in the 90s, so who better would appreciate an awesome 90s themed concert?!
