Only CUID holders will be granted admission to this spring’s Bacchanal concert, the Bacchanal committee said two days ago on its Facebook page. The committee is limiting the size of the crowd for public safety reasons. The announcement came after ilovefreeconcerts.com reported that the concert, headlined by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, would be open and free to the public.
The Bacchanal committee declined to comment.

No news out of the Supreme Court yet. Between all the HRC profile pictures and homework, I’m starting to forget what my friends look like.
To the graphs!
This year, like every other year, April Fool’s Day fell on April 1st. Bwog and The Fed both joked that Frontiers of Science was removed from the Core. Bwog also “leaked” the Varsity Show plot, and the White House released a video that features Kid President.
Get pumped, Columbia—we now have our full performance list for this year’s first-ever Columbia Music Festival.
PostCrypt has just announced the artists for their annual Folk Fest, to be held on Sun., April 14, at 1 p.m.—the day after Bacchanal.
According to PostCrypt’s event page, the performers will include Joe Fletcher of self-proclaimed “country-blues” band Joe Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons, blues ensemble Brotherhood of the Jug Band Blues, “western swing” group Braincloud, and alternative duo Mountain Animation.
This event marks the final installment of Columbia Music Festival‘s week of performances, a collaboration of several campus music groups’ spring events. See the full week’s schedule after the jump: More »
This evening, the Bacchanal committee announced that Macklemore will be headlining this year’s spring concert, along with DJ duo Flosstradamus. The announcement comes three days earlier than planned. The concert will be held April 13.
The committee didn’t release the date earlier because of safety concerns that involved the NYPD, which placed a financial burden on Bacchanal and CCSC, Bacchanal’s publicity chair Anais Ross, CC ’15, said. The committee also withheld the announcement to protect the artists’ ticket sale.

Now that we’re a week deep into the part of the semester that follows spring break, many of the most exciting moments of the school year are upon us. For example, we find out in just a few short days who’s playing at Bacchanal (and hopefully won’t be disappointed, though we at The Eye, in our endless Columbian cynicism, aren’t too hopeful).
For the Class of 2013, something wicked this way comes: Real life. Many of you guys are probably stressing more than ever, wishing you had just gone to vocational schools instead of sinking 240k into a liberal arts degree.
The end of the year certainly has its wonderful moments, though. You’ll be able to sit outside on the steps, soaking up the sun and laughing with your friends. Maybe you’ll even catch the eye of that special someone on Low Beach, and they’ll finally respond to your CU Admirers post…
To prepare for all the wonderful fun that will ensue, why not read The Eye’s lead this week, “Sex Talk”?
Better yet, check out the whole issue! Enjoy!
The reason for musician 3LAU’s visit to campus, which was announced on his official Facebook page yesterday, will remain a mystery—at least for now. Based on previously reported dates, the performance, slated for April 18, doesn’t fall within the dates of the Columbia Music Festival or Bacchanal’s annual spring concert.
Bacchanal wouldn’t confirm or deny that 3LAU is playing its spring concert, in keeping with its tradition of not commenting on artist selections until April 1, but the group did point out that the spring concert is still scheduled for April 13.
Columbia Music Festival coordinators said they did not know anything about the performance, and note that it doesn’t fall within the dates scheduled for the festival, which begins April 9 and ends on April 14 with a Postcrypt concert the day after Bacchanal. More »
The Board does not name a headliner, supporting their earlier promise to hold off on releasing the name until April 1.

In light of rumors published in an off-campus publication last weekend, we feel the need to issue a statement regarding this year’s Spring Concert. More »
According to the Williams College student newspaper, Macklemore has canceled his appearance at Williams, which was originally planned for April 14, the day after Bacchanal.
The article also mentions that Macklemore has canceled his Columbia performance but does not provide a source for this information. Spectator was unable to verify whether Macklemore’s agents issued the same announcement to Columbia as they did to Williams.
Bacchanal Publicity Chair Anaïs Ross, CC ’15, declined to comment Sunday evening. The committee is not scheduled to announce the Bacchanal headliner until April 1.
From the Williams article:
Yesterday Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, the act intended to headline the College’s spring fling, called off their agreement to perform in Williamstown on April 14. Acting within the rights of their contracts, the duo canceled their performances both at the College and at Columbia (scheduled for April 13) in order to perform on MTV. Ben Lamb, assistant director of the Office of Student Life, sent an all-campus e-mail alerting the student body of the cancelation.
It’s late. You’re up. You might be wondering “what’s up with all this snow?” and “will there be any other strangely named storms in the near future?” Well you should brace yourselves, because there’s a whole new set of storms heading our way this semester:
The Bacchanal Earthquake
Our intrepid seismologists have discovered that a large seismic event will occur sometime this spring, its epicenter being right in the middle of campus. Preliminary reports have yet to determine the bulk of the character of this earthquake, but it is known that it will come from the direction of Morningside Park.
The Varsity Show Windstorm
Additionally, our weather-people have also discovered that a ton of air will be thrown around campus in the form of singing sometime this spring. You should expect being either blown away by the music or buffeted away from your fear of the musical theater.
While all eight musical groups that performed at Saturday’s Battle of the Bands received thundering applause from the audience, Morningsiders packed the Lerner Party Space and came out victorious, earning the chance to open at this year’s Bacchanal.
Watch the video above to check out parts of the performances of Morningsiders and the other seven bands, and hear what Bacchanal publicity chair Anais Ross had to say after Saturday’s show.
