12 days of Spring Weekend: What Cheer? Brigade


The 19 piece brass band, What Cheer? Brigade, has been a staple for the Spring Weekend line up since 2012. They aren’t a big name, and some might think, due to their early slot, skipping their show isn’t a big deal. WRONG. What Cheer? is not optional! They are the bees’ knees, the ducks’ intestines, and we are excited as hell for them to come play. If you want to read more about their sound, check out last year’s hype post for the returning champs (and dead chimps). For 2015, we’re going to skip all of the pleasantries. Instead of trying to put a typical performance into words, here is a collection of photos from the 2014 “Find Your Friends” album. We’d like to show you just how good a time we had below the jump.

Enough said (shown). In the words of the band, “great parties need no electricity”, and we’ll see you in front of Sayles Hall on the eighteenth. Wear extra deodorant, because they’ll make you sweat.
