Georgetown may not be having a fall concert, but we’re welcome at GW’s!
Enough to give you Foggy Bottom envy?
It looks like once again, we’ll have to wait until the spring for GPB to scrape together an on-campus concert.
According to GPB Concert Chair Danny Fortin, with only two months left in the semester, GPB has not yet begun the concert planning process. For comparison, GPB started planning in January for T-Pain’s late April concert last spring.
After Coolio’s fall 2007 concert and the Fountains of Wayne’s underwhelming, under-attended fall 2006 performance, GPB decided not to throw a fall show last year when their 2008 Concert Chair stepped down.
Luckily not all D.C. area colleges’ programming boards are so blasé about concert planning.
George Washington University’s programing board is hosting Maroon 5 on Friday, November 13—and they’ve kindly opened the ticket sales up to students at other local universities. Tickets are on sale now and cost $30 (what can you do, everything’s more expensive at GW).
