We are liveblogging Baccha90s!
UPDATE: The show is over! Read over our liveblog for some highlights from the event, and let us know what you thought in the comments!
7:15 p.m.: The show is over! Last thoughts from some of our people:
“Big Gigantic was really good. Surprisingly. That was a really fun show. And that seemed to be a collective feeling, which just made it better.” — Grace Bickers, Spectrum Opinion Deputy
“Wavves was–perfect music for the weather. Curren$y was great too. I didn’t understand why Big Gigantic had a saxophone. I’m impressed by the people who made it onto the facade of Kent, even though it meant that there were random people in the men’s restroom. Also I didn’t think Columbia could go this hard–this kid I know crowd surfed for like 8 minutes.” – David Salazar, Spectrum Eye Deputy
“My thought: sweaty.” – Charlotte Murtishaw, Spectator senior staff writer
“I cannot attempt to type thoughts.” – Samantha Henderson, Spectrum token drunk daily editor
“I fell asleep during Big Gigantic so they probably suck.” – Darron Kinney, Spectrum daily editor
Check after the jump for the rest of our liveblog — featuring profanity, vomit, and even a wedding! Also we occasionally talked about the music or the musical acts or whatever.
6:04 p.m.: And another of our contributors comes to their defense: “I actually like Big Gigantic, but I don’t think they should be a headline act. They don’t sing anything themselves, so it kind of feels like a rip off. Loving the dubstep though.”
6:03 p.m.: We’ve received a tip! “The Big Gigantic is not enjoyable.” Thanks, tipster!
5:51 p.m.: The Red Bull truck might just be the most popular act of the day.
5:38 p.m.: Also happening today: A wedding at St Paul’s chapel! Pictured are Michele McCarthy, BC ’98, and Fitzroy Lindsay. Apparently they didn’t find out until last Friday that Bacchanal would also be happening today, but they seemed to be in good spirits! Congratulations to the newlyweds!
4:56 p.m.: More Curren$y!
4:39 p.m.: Yep, there are definitely strawberries in there.
4:32 p.m.: A picture of Curren$y performing:
4:29 p.m.: One of our intrepid reporters (to protect this person’s anonymity/dignity, we’ll leave her nameless) sends in a tip: “There’s vomit on the steps. It’s pink–looks like strawberries in there.” Thanks for giving us all the gory details, Maggie!
4:22 p.m.: Derek Turner, about Curren$y: “This is my jam.” Also the people wrestling on the lawn could use some pointers in how to execute a headlock. They seem to be having trouble managing it.
4:14 p.m.: Curren$y is $tarting.
3:52 p.m.: Someone just walked by in a penguin costume. A possibly-deranged man is screaming “Go forth and fuck!”
3:41 p.m.: The aforementioned sumo wrestlers.
3:37 p.m.: WAVVES is off, Curren$y next.
3:28 p.m.: Sumos on the stage… and off the stage.
3:20 p.m.: The sumo wrestlers have entered the ring.
2:59 p.m.: Sports editor Jeremiah Sharf has sent us a photo! He adds that it’s “Pretty not crowded. Girls are selling watermelon. No word yet as to whether or not it is a vodka watermelon.”
2:53 p.m.: “I feel like I’m in middle school right now with that Capri Sun. Alright, we’ll play songs now.”
2:52 p.m.: WAVVES is onnnnnnn.
2:48 p.m.: Spicy Special’s set is over. WAVVES is setting up.
2:32 p.m.: Surprised father with his toddler entering College Walk: “What the—?”
2:24 p.m.: Spicy Special’s on. crowd miilieu: half dancing, half sitting.
1:00 p.m.: “I thought Bacchanal lasted like a week”
