The BCA has added two more acts to this Spring Weekend’s already stellar lineup.  First, opening up on Friday night, will be NYC-based rock band Lissy Trullie.  Led by frontwoman (and former model) Lissy, the group will certainly add a new element to the already diverse lineup, and has covered songs such as Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend” and Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” during its live shows.

Leading Saturday night will be student who does cool things (and world renowned electronic artist) Nico Jaar (’12).  Nico, the only electronic artist performing during the weekend, will be playing his set with a live band (cleverly billed as Nico Jaar (band)).  The BCA had struggled to find an electronic act owing to Coachella and European tours, but the “rising techno star” will fill that niche as well anyone else could.  The BCA has also not ruled out the possibility of adding another student act, either, through Speakeasy auditions or a Battle of the Bands.

Check out BCA’s new ticketing procedure after the jump.

    Does this mean we can’t buy any guest tickets? I have a friend who bought his plane ticket here just for Spring Weekend.
