Field House I'd imagine?
Ticket to show < Handle of Zhenka
Another interesting note is that SCOPE just got a $38,000 bump in their SAFC budget. I don't hate this band (though I hadn't heard of them before now) and I like to see a mix of bands, but this is really the best they could do? I won't be going--not because I dislike two Door Cinema Club but because I absolutely hate shows in the Field House...just the worst. Disappointed for sure.
im actually pretty excited.
Two Door Cinema Club is actually a really highly acclaimed band, who played lollapalooza and a shit ton of other festivals recently. Even if you don't like the band, you have to admit that they are quite acclaimed and if someone thinks they are completely unknown, then they were just looking for a lame autotuned performer anyways.
Two Door Cinema Club over the past year has played on a number of late night talk shows as well as being major acts for many big festivals over the summer. Their music has appeared on a number of commercials from MTV to Microsoft. They are essentially the Irish version of Phoenix, having played a number of festivals with them. They have a lot of potential to become a huge group in the U.S. in the next couple of years. Personally I am a pretty big fan of TDCC, having followed them before their first album came out.That being said, I can sympathize with those who are dissapointed with the concert. As a freshman, I was pretty surprised that it took them two months to announce the concert. I would have expected them to announce it the first week of classes. The longer they waited to announce the concert, the more impatient people got (combined with what seemed to be the massive popularity of the Wiz concert). As a result, it was pretty unlikely Scope would be able to match the hype that was built up for the first concert this year. Although rock was the second choice in the poll on their FB page, it was behind over 50 votes to electronic music. Most of the people i've hung out with on campus seem to be really into electronic music and rarely mention rock or alternative. It also doesn't help that UMass got three of the biggest acts in Electronic music (Tiesto, Deadmau5, and Afrojack) in October.I have noticed a lot of hate on the Scope group for this concert, but I heavily doubt many people have actually listened to the tracks themselves. Give them a chance, they'll probably warm up on you like they did me. Personally, I recommend their song called 'Kids' (a bonus song on the deluxe edition of their CD) as well as 'Something Good Can Work (The Twelves Remix)'.
Oh also another thing. Was there this much hate for Passion Pit when they came last year? I consider them to be pretty similar groups, and they have played together multiple times. Maybe they got a free pass because they were from New England
Y'know, I feel for SCOPE because no matter who they bring, they're going to get shit on for it. This seems like a perfectly acceptable, cheaply priced college show.If people really want to see the shows they think they want, they need to request that the student activity fee get quadrupled.Until then, SCOPE should base their choices on whichever option gets the most Google hits since name recognition seems to be the most important thing to people.PS What the fuck is dubstep?
lol - admit it, that show sucks - i'd rather watch 3 episodes of swamp loggers
UNHblog-can you remind students that college shows were never meant to be the biggest and best names-college shows are the time when up and coming bands play to their ultimate fan base- maybe not now, but how many times can we say 'we saw them when..' at UNH. Its bums me out with what everyone's been saying the past year or so, basically since SCOPE has been heavily relying on FB to promote their shows. You go to Boston or NYC or philly or providence to see the bands you love- you go to college shows to check out new bands-love them or hate them, at least you went. live music is where its at
@Anon 11:27AMNo, that's what MUSO is for, and no one goes to those fucking shows. SCOPE is there to kick out the jams.
