No More Macklemore

Macklemore says peace

Macklemore says peace

Well, this seems unfortunate. According to The Williams Record, (most definitely not a Columbia source, interestingly enough) the man who may have been (may still be) this year’s Bacchanal performer has cancelled his show in Williamstown—and his performance at Columbia. Bacchanal declined to comment on the report. The article text below tells the sad story, and why Macklemore supposedly dumped us: for greener pastures and the adoration of preteens.

”Yesterday Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, the act intended to headline the College’s spring fling, called off their agreement to perform in Williamstown on April 14. Acting within the rights of their contracts, the duo canceled their performances both at the College and at Columbia (scheduled for April 13) in order to perform on MTV. ”

  • @The Bwog staff has the worst journalism skills in history.

      @Robert The only thing Bwog comments hate more than frats is Bwog

    3. nope says:

      @nope have you seen kaitlin phillips’ “lead story” in the eye this week?

    4. eh says:

      @eh just because it’s not a great source, they’re telling us what they know. They tried to get information from the source but the Bacchanal committee declined to comment. At least they’re giving us something, even if it’s not definite. It’s more than any other campus news source has done for us.

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous kind of, but the spectator post actually doesn’t just claim things like bwog did. the williams article has the announcement email but there’s no source as to whether they canceled here.

      2. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous I think the “worst staff in history” references the post where Bwog made fun of Bacchanal for declining coverage because of a Bwog post that was “light-hearted and “clearly speculative” and just a teaser, when it turned out to be the real thing. And possibly the reason Macklemore cancelled.

    @Well, shit Why don’t they just give up on trying to get someone good, and instead lobby the admins to let us go all burning man on South Lawn. Afterall, Bacchanal is really just an excuse to do drugs during the day in public.

      @Anonymous well, considering that the bacchanal committee never announced a performer, it wouldn’t make much sense for them to tell us that a performer cancelled…

  • Bored says:

    @Bored Hopefully, we’ll be heckled no more with news about Macklemore. I’ve got the Same Love for a bunch of other performers who would be just great. After all, I feel like I’ve been in Butler for Ten Thousand Hours, all because I’m desperate to find a way to Make the Money. For Bacchanal, I just want to get wasted (feelin’ like I got Wing$) and party in some threads that I got at a Thrift Shop.

    @Anonymous FOR FUCKS SAKE WHY ISN’T THERE MORE TRANSPARENCY ON THIS DECISION.

    These aren’t the fucking nuclear codes Bacchanal, just talk to the student body and stop acting all secretive and superior. If you get someone good, we’ll be excited. You don’t have to manufacture hype by keeping it quiet.

    1. you're a dumbass says:

      @you're a dumbass Columbia has a free, open campus show. Bacchanal does not keep it a secret for hype, they know the student body will come out for the show regardless. It protects the artist’s ticket sales for other shows as well as the campus (NYPD had to be called in to limit access when half of NYC showed up for the Kanye show years back).

      STFU

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous Bad logic. What exactly is the difference between a month and a half’s worth of notice and notice as soon as a decision is made?

  • CC '13 says:

    @CC '13 If you read the article from the Williams Record, it says, “Ben Lamb, assistant director of the Office of Student Life, sent an all-campus e-mail alerting the student body of the cancelation.”

    Why the fuck do we fail to receive the same level of transparency and communication from Bacchanal Events? As the people who will be attending the event, are we not owed a simple explanation of what happened from the event organizers? If anyone from Bacchanal is reading this, please know that had you notified the student body of the unfortunate situation (as that Ben Lamb guy did), the impending backlash from the students would not be nearly as harsh. However, since we all had to hear the news from Bwog and Spec, you will feel the full force of Columbia pissiness. Winter is coming, Bacchanal.

    @The more you know More than (75 / 375) or 1/5 seniors in SEAS already has a BACHELORS degree from a shitty liberal arts college. they got in through an affirmative action program for rich people who can afford the extra degree to help columbia make ends meet during these difficult economic times. you might know this program as 3+2. the administration is laughing at your hard work to get in here fairly by accepting these rich students from hendrix college, et al. who dilute our degrees. They get GUARANTEED ADMISSION as long as they score a 3.3 at their dumbass community colleges. Look up this program. It is real. WE NEED TO DEMAND CHANGE NO

    1. oh just stop please says:

      @oh just stop please Please quit using every single Bwog post to discuss this – you appear to have a huge chip on your shoulder that needs to be addressed elsewhere, perhaps where people will actually listen to you instead of being annoyed that you’re distracting them from the Bacchanal craziness. I understand you’re just trying to get the word out, but do you really think anyone is listening? If someone wants to spend 5+ years getting a combined plan degree, that’s up to them. If you really want to change this, you need to take it beyond Bwog.

    @CC 14 think about it. what if bacchanal made students pay like 10 bucks to see whoever plays. not only would people know in advanced, it would help get a better artist and one prolly most of us will like. I don’t care if I’m charged a little bit to watch something entertaining. I just hate this system we have in place now.

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous And just make the tickets only available through Lerner over a 4-5 month period, purchasable just like CUArts stuff. That way they can only sell to CU students while maintaining minimal oversight beyond simple ticketing at the actual event.

        and for the record, i wouldn’t mind paying an additional $20 on top of however much i’m already paying from my student life fee to get someone better
