Bacchanal Finally Releases Statement

Written by

Bacchanal of years past

Because Bwog has been excluded from Bacchanal coverage, Bacchanal has released a statement only to Spec. It doesn’t really say much, unless you read between the lines. When Bacchanal says they’re “looking forward to announcing this year’s lineup, and nothing has changed in that regard,” the implication is pretty clear: what has changed is that Macklemore bailed on us for MTV.

Dear Columbia,

In light of rumors published in an off­-campus publication last weekend, we feel the need to issue a statement regarding this year’s Spring Concert.

As always, we will announce this year’s lineup on April 1st, 2013, approximately two weeks before the show. This year, we have renewed our continuous dedication to keeping Bacchanal’s Spring Concert an unticketed event. Because our venue is an open urban campus, we announce late in order to keep crowd control simple, and to keep the event awesome for everyone.

We have worked tirelessly all year to put on a special day for everyone involved. The Spring Concert holds a special place in our hearts, and we are 100% confident that it will be an unequivocal success, the unique day that all of Columbia looks forward to through the haze of midterms and papers.

We’ve been looking forward to announcing this year’s lineup, and nothing has changed in that regard. It’s going to be an amazing year, and, as usual, the only valid information regarding Spring Concert will come straight from Bacchanal.

See you at DeBacchery!

    OH GOD THIS IS A FIASCO WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WE'RE DOING

  2. April 1st  

    Announcing things on April 1st is just a terrible idea in general - no one knows if it's serious or not lol

  3. To all Bacchanal Chicks thinking of getting sloshed like crazy bitches

    Just letting all you "go hard, you only live once" ladies know, that your wear-nothing-underneath, ludicrous, slutty-behavior, vodka-chugging selves know that you are extremely fun to bro-out with and some of you are downright hysterical and really, as a graduating senior, your sluttiness really has made my college experience like no other. You're fun in the flirty moments leading up to the fuck, fun during the fuck, and sometimes fun the next morning (unless you're puking into my pillow in which case, GTFO). But when it comes time for considering a woman for a long term relationship and eventually marriage, I will not pick any of you lolz. Even if you do manage to clean yourselves up 5 years after graduation. Do not complain later when stable, smart, and ambitious guys don't want to proceed anything further with you than a saturday morning fuck. For a LTR, give me the girl who went to Bachannal for the music and time with her closest friends, without the need for relentless alcohol or sex (unless she has a BF) to consider her time "fun."

    that is all.

    happy fucking, guys.

      Like anyone would marry a douche like you.

      So I love the double standard...these women are not doing these things by themselves...they're doing them with people like you....same behavior from the opposite sex just looked at differently.....maybe they are thinking the exact same thing you are thinking.....ever thought of that?

      @To all Bacchanal Chicks thinking of getting sloshed like crazy bitches:

      What the fuck are you even talking about. I'm not even mad. Just what the fuck. Please stop what it is you're doing.

    • lol at this clown  

      i bet you were a total prude until your first year of college.

      You are the embodiment of everything I hate in a person. It's because of douches like you that we still don't have the sex positive atmosphere, even after 50 years of the birth control pill. Women will never see that sex is a win win situation for both parties involved if you keep shaming them. I haven't had sex in three months, and it's dbags like you who force women to be too prude. You ruin it for all of us and yourself. And for the record, I wouldn't marry a girl who's not sexual / knows how to have fun. No giy wants a sexless marriage. Also, salaciousness Doesn't mean that a can't also be classy and deep. Long story short: Stop fuckin with my shit, you dumb bitch.

        Fellas, fellas, let's disect his unbelievably self-centered comment here:

        " I haven't had sex in three months.... "


        those of you voting his post up, please take note that his argument is not based on principle or what he feels is politically right. it's all from his own frustrations because he " haven't had sex in three months." Maybe if you hadn't said that, I would have taken your side of the argument with respect and thus, had responded with respect. You are entitled to your opinion.

        But don't go blaming "dbags like me" for liking classy women because DBAGS LIKE YOU are frustrated that the girl you've been getting dinner/movie with for the last 3 months isn't what you dipshits call "putting out." Just because a girl doesn't have sex with you before you're in a committed exclusive relationship with her doesn't mean: 1) You have the right to rant and get frustrated because she doesn't want to give her body to you and 2) You're not an arrogant dickihead for thinking that she DOES want to fuck your lame ass and 3) She's bad in bed AFTER you're in said committed relationship.

        In fact, it's DBAGS LIKE YOU who make women socially ashamed of themselves that they aren't "cool" enough because they're either waiting for the right guy or because they actually have respect for themselves.

  4. To all Bacchanal Chicks thinking of getting sloshed like crazy bitches

    Probably not. As any intelligent and classy WOMAN would be completely and utterly turned off after hearing about my bro-history, in the same way I'm a hypocrite for not liking girls who had acted like me in college.. One can only cross his fingers and hope :P

    DeBacchery is a dumb name. Bacchanal and debauchery are essentially the same word (one is a specific celebration and the other is the manner of celebration) and have the same root. It's not a clever pun; it's just a misspelling.

    • Hatersgonhate

      Instead of bitching about it after the fact, how about being constructive during the process? If you have input and feel that it is valid, do something about it instead of being an asshole

    • wiktionary  

      @Anonymous: debauch: 1590s, from Middle French desbaucher ("entice from work or duty"), from Old French desbaucher ("to lead astray"), from des- + bauch ("beam"), from Frankish *balko, from Proto-Germanic *balkô, from Proto-Indo-European *bhelg- (“beam, plank”); latter origin of balk.

      Evolution of sense unclear; may be literally “to shave/trim wood to make a beam” or may be “to leave/lure someone from a workshop”, Frankish balk perhaps also meaning “workshop”.

    I don't understand why we can't get The Roots, or A$AP Rocky to perform. Both are New York based, and I'm sure they'd be willing to help the community for even a little less than they're used to. Hell, the Goldie video was filmed in Paris and Riverside Park. Also, Childish Gambino or Kendrick Lamar would be awesome.

    Why is it a secret? We live in New York where the music world lives. We should be able to get big names.

    Considering that every weekend these musicians have a bidding war for an hour of their time, it shouldn't actually be that hard for you to imagine. I don't think it's like making plans to get together with a friend.

    Let's get Grieves. He's friends with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis/ played shows with them, he's also a Seattle rapper, and he's insanely awesome. Haterz can be comforted in the fact that he's similar to Mack & RL, but awesome ppl will know that Grieves is wonderful in his own right.

    first track on his most recent album- youtube.com/watch?v=5So-_z-jkHE

    WHY DOES EVERYONE IN THAT POSTED PICTURE LOOK LIKE EITHER A BITCH OR A DOUCHEBAG?

    I mean, that one guy on the right in the dark green hoodie even looks like a child molester! The two chicks at the bottom, while a little pretty, look like drama queens. The mexican chick behind the yellow shirt looks like she's about to bite someone's head off!

    where are all the nice, innocent looking people?
