Kevin Rudolf, Dev and the Cataracs to perform at spring concert

[Editor's Note: A previous version of this post incorrectly reported that Dev and the Cataracs, not Kevin Rudolf, will headline the concert. We apologize for the mistake.] Georgetown’s annual Spring Kick-Off Concert is going to be like a G6 — or at least part of one. Kevin Rudolf, the Cash Money-backed artist behind “Let It […]

Third Eye Blind is playing the Georgetown Spring Kick-Off Concert in April

Just before break, Vox reported how students voted for artists the Georgetown Programming Board could potentially bring to play at our Spring Kick-Off Concert. Third Eye Blind got the most first place votes, but ultimately, students ranked Lupe Fiasco highest overall, based on GPB’s tallying system. Guess they couldn’t book him, or runner-up Kid Cudi. […]

While the Voice doesn’t necessarily agree that an April 10 concert can “kickoff” the Spring, we’re intrigued by some of the options they’re offering. Vox has been trying […]

It’s better to have T-Pain’d and lost than to never have T-Pain’d at all

No T-Pain for you, AU Last week, the Voice‘s Sean Quigley had some harsh words for Spring Concert performer T-Pain (to refresh your memory, some of those words were: underwhelming, lackluster, repetitive, tiresome…). But at least we had the chance to experience the auto-tuned wonder, as disappointing as he may have been. Our peers at […]

The verdict on T-Pain? At least it wasn’t Coolio

T-Painful Despite his dominance of the Top-40 singles chart, the famously auto-tuned T-Pain delivered an underwhelming performance at Saturday night’s concert in McDonough. This year’s iteration of the annual GPB Spring Concert disappointment was marked by a lackluster set of seemingly lip-synched dance songs played to a less-than-capacity crowd (Update: According to GPB Concert Chair […]

Can’t believe it: GPB books T-Pain for Georgetown’s Spring Concert

I’m on a stage! I can hardly believe their success, but Facebook doesn’t lie. After weeks of giving us the run-around, the Georgetown Programming Board has finally announced that they’ve booked T-Pain to play at Georgetown’s Spring Concert on April 18th. Hooray! The  rapper-producer will be jamming in McDonough Gymnasium on April 18th, which means […]
