Bwog Asked: How Do You Feel About Bacchanal?

He's looking at your answers and judging them.

He’s looking at your answers and judging you.

So… Bacchanal is coming up. It’s headlined as we all know by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, also featuring Flosstradamus and Morningsiders. Another thing: it starts at 11am. How do people feel about all this? Well, your trusty Bwog braved Butler in a quest for answers. Here are some of the best ones:

  • Girl in elevator: “I have a dance performance at 2 that day so… I mean I’m a little bummed I can’t make it, but I think all of us in the dance department are just like “eh, it’s a thing that happens.”
  • Boy with accent in 6th floor hallway: “I don’t know what that is! But I’ll google it later.”
  • Butler smoker: “Not excited about Macklemore, have never heard of Ryan Lewis; I’m a huge trap fan so Flosstradaumus is good, but they really could have stepped it up with the hip hop.”
  • Girl: “My thesis is due tomorrow so I have no thoughts about anything else.”
  • Girl in 209: “So excited!!! I’ll be there at 6 am!!!!”
  • Girl in 209: “Partying people. That’s all I know.”
  • Guy in Ref Room: “I wish it was Vampire Weekend, or Phoenix, or something, but it’ll do.”
  • Unfazed guy in all black: “My brother is in high school and gives more of a shit than I do.”
  • Girl applying makeup in the bathroom for 20 minutes despite head to toe Columbia sweat gear: “Don’t have time to think about it until at least Wednesday.”
  • Quiet guy in front of cafe: “Disappointed, I wanted A$AP Rocky…”
  • Guy near cafe:”I’m excited, the lineup is pretty good. But I don’t like how they tricked us by saying Macklemore wasn’t going to play and stuff.”
  • Friendly guy: “I think it’s gonna be… I wish it wasn’t so early. It’s gonna be hard to drink so early. But I think that makes it funnier.”
  • Guy on 3rd floor in passing: “Pumpppeeddd upppp!!!” (as he was walking away)
  • Girl with headphones: “I mean I’m excited but I wish it was starting later. But I’m still excited.”
  • Guy in a hurry: “I’m really excited… I love Morningsiders… probably because I’m in Morningsiders… the more people like Macklemore the more will come watch us so I guess I like him too!”

    @I don't get it... Aesop Rock? Is that a joke?

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Aesop =/= A$AP

      actually though, shit’s confusing.

  • Vampire Weekend says:

    @Vampire Weekend should play every year

  • CC 13 says:

    @CC 13 Bwog, when is Holi? Please tell, I need to know!

      1. 14 says:

  • "Guy in a Hurry" says:

    @"Guy in a Hurry" Is definitely Reid

      @Anonymous Reid = such a cutie
      Which way does he swing?

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous wtf to the person who likes Mack but not RL

  • BC '13 says:

    @BC '13 Where will they be checking CUID? At the gates or in a roped off area? Need more info about security please!!

    1. Flo$$ says:

      @Flo$$ I heard only CUIDs were accepted. no BC.
      ya could always sneak in though. :(

      1. uh oh. says:

        @uh oh. BC IDs are CUIDs.

        1. Columbian says:

          @Columbian Actually, not really. They’re technically not the same thing and look different as well. But BC students still are allowed to participate.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Never going to top Snoop Dogg. It’s all downhill for Bacchanal

  • NO says:

    @NO You needed ID for Snoop Dog’s year when they locked us all in little cages on the lawns. This concert’s on the steps, and I imagine it would be a logistical nightmare for them to try to check IDs in a space that open.

  • Van Owen says:

    @Van Owen I just rubbed one out…so damn satisfying.

  • fuck Macklemore says:

    @fuck Macklemore This is depressing. Seriously, who the fuck listens to Macklemore??? Where the fuck is the EDM??

    Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Avicii, where art thou?

    At least give us Alesso, Porter Robinson or Zedd!

    Really disappointed in the poor taste this year and last.

    1. Musician says:

      @Musician Take your EDM (i.e. Evil Demonic Money-whores) and shove it up your ass!
      Bacchanal doesn’t hire people who let a computer do their mixing for them.

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous i agree. EDM is fun and all, but i dont need to watch them mixing tracks live

      2. Another Musician says:

        @Another Musician If you seriously believe that you can just let your computer mix for you with EDM, I thoroughly question your musicianshipness.

        1. Musician (again) says:

          @Musician (again) Most EDM artists use CDJs, which are pretty damn easy to use (they give you the BPM after all). In addition, I’ve been to a bunch of events where djs used sync mode in programs like Traktor, etc. I respect electronic music, but as to the artists mentioned above: all trashy performers

          1. fuck Macklemore says:

            @fuck Macklemore Have you even seen any of the DJs I mentioned perform live? Saying they’re trashy performers demonstrates your ignorance regarding EDM in particular and your utter lack of taste regarding music in general.

            Go back to listening to your Music Hum mix tape kid.

      3. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous Yeah guys, Macklemore will be accompanied by a full orchestra and three bands. You think Ryan Lewis would just DJ? Jeez!

      4. but liek says:

        @but liek ryan lewis is just gonna plug in his laptop and press “play” so………………

  • every year says:

    @every year people say “oh i wish it was this person or that Dj” or some shit like that. When are people gonna realize that whoever’s playing is secondary to the awesomeness that is the one day a year Columbians party hard. Get drunk. Get High. Have Fun.

      @Anonymous HIGH FIVE TO YOU!!!

  • RUN THE TRAP says:

    @RUN THE TRAP #flaxo #flaxostadium #traplife #runthetrap #trap

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous not so pumped for this but HOLY SHIT wbar-b-q lineup is awesome

  • prefrosh says:

    @prefrosh do you think if prefrosh are there for days on campus we can get into bacchanal without an ID?

  • wait says:

    @wait what time is it starting? people are complaining about how early it is?…
