One More Reason To Hate Penn Kids

Sonic Youth is an “underground punk band” that no one has heard of yet they played their Spring Fling in 1995. While their profile probably peaked at that time and hasn’t eactly grown in the past decade, there’s no reason for not having heard of them. I mean, you can read about them in Rolling Stone and Blender and other mags on a Penn student’s tiny radar. The frat boys will make Cat Power cry. I’m crying just thinking about it. And Citizen Cope will take up the John Mayer residence on the bill. I mean, I was clueless and retarded in college too, but I wasn’t arrogant about it. Then again, I went to Temple, and all I got was Meat Loaf at my Spring Fling.

    Jesus. Well, what do you expect from overfed, milk mouthed suburban kids in the McMansions?

    Fishbone played at one of my spring flings, in the 80s. I went to temple. I think red hot chili peppers might have played, too, but jazz was on my radar then as now, and not rock.

    i think they have entertainment committees that vote on or pick the bands, and the Univ. provides a budget.

    “I like Sonic Youth myself so I’d like to see that [but] I don’t see them drawing too big of a crowd,” Engineering freshman Nick Drake said.

    What, you mean he’s alive after all? And he took up ENGINEERING?? 🙂
    That or he’s some snarky kid effing with the reporter who likely hasn’t heard of Nick Drake.
    For the record we never got any decent spring fling performers at Temple during the four years I was there, either. I think the last good one was in the early 90s when The Lemonheads and Velocity Girl played. My senior year it was some jam band from one of the frat houses. *yawn*

    We got Corey Hart for my first Spring Fling in Alfred, NY back in 1986….
