Mercyhurst Student Government recently announced the performers for spring break. Opening the show they will have Transit and We are The In Crowd. They will be opening for New Politics and Mayday Parade.
MSG and SAC always manage to surprise the students with great performers and not necessarily in a good way. For the past two years with performers like Sean Kingston and The White Panda, this year expectations were high. Unfortunately, not many people know about the performers and attendance to the most awaited event on campus.
Springfest is one of the biggest events of the year, especially for the concerts. This year the performing bands are of alternative and modern rock genres.
At this point of the year many students are excited about the announcement of the Springfest performers. This year’s performers disappointed many students, by the fact that not many people know about the band.
Recently, MSG posted on their Facebook account a video for those who are not familiar with the bands. The posts announcing the performers or the video have little number of likes compared to past year announcements. This demonstrates the lack of excitement of students towards the performers.
Probably the performers will deliver a good show, but I am not sure if people are looking forward to this year’s spring fest as they have been for the past years.
Students expect a different kind of music, where they can dance and sing along. Not sure if this will be the case with the performing rock bands.
Mayday Parade is an American rock band from Tallahassee, Fl. New Politics is an alternative rock band and they come from Copenhagen, Denmark. Transit is an American band from Boston. We Are the In Crowd; the other opening band is an American pop punk band from Poughkeepsie, New York.
With only a couple of months away from the Springfest, hopefully the bands will raise our expectations and deliver a good show.
