Reel Big Fish to headline Springfest
By Luke Lograno
Ska-punk band Reel Big Fish will make their way to Burt Kahn Court this coming Saturday.
The band will be performing as the headliner for WQAQ’s Springfest concert along with opening act Asceral Envictus.
This year, WQAQ decided on their performers differently than in years past. Sophia Alfieri, the radio station’s Public Relations manager, said this year was more focused on what the students wanted,
“This year we did things a little differently, we sent outa poll” said Alfieri, “they vote in the poll, we get the results back, we look at the top and then we reach out.”
Rapper Flipp Dinero headlined last year’s Springfest concert, but students are showing excitement for the change in genre.
“I like the rough, I like the little things, the stank notes” said Quinnipiac student Sean Raggio, “I just feel like I can connect to it more.”
The concert will precede Student Programming Board’s Wake the Giant concert featuring rappers Blackbear and Bryce Vine, but students are still excited to see the 90’s ska band.
“I feel like there will be different crowds,” said Raggio, “but I think Springfest will be a better show.”
Students enter free with their Q-Card and doors open for the event at 7 P.M.
