A Weekend of Student Music

Last semester, Brown students voted on their dream lineup for Spring Weekend. The BCA managed to snag just one act that made our wishlist — not suprising considering our lofty expectations. In these tight times, we can’t go shelling millions of dollars to book Taylor Swift. How would we explain that to Mayor Taveras? Luckily, Brown Student Radio has got those lusting for more marquee names covered. Its Spring Cover Band show is going down tonight, and the lineup is pretty jaw-dropping on paper. Come by The Underground tonight at 9 to catch some of Providence’s best bands covering the likes of Beirut, Neil Young, Prince, Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Each group’s set will last about twenty minutes, but expect T-Swift’s to be cut a little short…

Then, if you’re craving more student music — or just an excuse to go to Whisco in the afternoon — the BCA is hosting a Battle of the Bands this Sunday at 1 p.m. Four student acts will be competing for the chance to win eternal fame and glory (and free Spring Weekend tickets). Head on over to everyone’s bayside watering hole to kick your Spring Week off right.

It’s called Kanye’d by the Bell, and it promises to seriously re-contextualize Jessie Spano’s nasty drug habit for the 21st Century.

Check out the Tumblr for screenshots of single-black-female-addicted-to-retail Lisa Turtle and a pajama-clad Screech sending “this bitch a picture of my dick.”

Just when you thought Kanye West’s tweets couldn’t get any funnier/weirder…

Apparently, graphic artist John Harper has made an amazing discovery — that Kanye West is Tracy Jordan (of 30 Rock, in case that wasn’t clear). If you add “Liz Lemon” to almost any of Kanye’s tweets, they sound exactly like things Tracy would say. Check out the Kanye Jordan Twitter here.

Anyone else need a Kanye cover of “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah” now?
