Juice Jam 2012 Headliners Announced


By Joelle Hyman

Of the few things that unite our campus community, outside of the events held in the Dome, University Union-hosted concerts are probably upon the Top 5.

And in case you live under a rock, the student organization announced Sunday via Twitter popular house DJ, Calvin Harris, and comedian-turned-actor-turned-rapper, Donald Glover, performing under his stage name, Childish Gambino, as the co-headliners for Juice Jam this fall.

With supporting acts to be announced soon, it may sway some of those undeniable grunts into excitement. As always, Juice Jam will be held on Skytop Field, September 9th starting at 1 p.m. Unlike last year's late afternoon start, this year will require some to get up (possibly for the only time the entire year) when the dining halls still serve breakfast. Tickets can be purchased starting August 23rd for $10 at the Schine box office or online.

Is UU serving the majority of campus with their choices or were you pulling for another headliner? Let it be known that I, personally, put Arctic Monkeys in every suggestion box and went unheard. As I usually do. Sigh.

Tweet us, @JerkMagazine and let us know what you think; whether it be pure anticipation to sing every word to "Bonfire" or inquiries about where to get a pitchfork to protest house music. And P.S., don't blame the latter on us if you accidentally start a riot.
