Andrew WK at UMass Lowell sign now

For the past few years, UMass Lowell has not seen a current rock act during their Spring Carnival or and major concert event. Run DMC, Rahzel & Jurassic 5 have all headlined Storing Canival in the past 4 years. I'm not forgetting they Might Be Giants, but they can not be considered a current act. Andrew WK recently headlined an MTV "Hand picked" tour, has had an MTV special, hosted numerous shows for MTV, has performed on different awards shows, and also hosted different shows on Spike TV as well. His two albums, "I Get Wet" and "The Wolf" have enjoyed Billboard success, and he is often considered one of the next big "rock stars". UMass Lowell has a golden opportunity to invite this emerging artist to play at our school, yet we have not.
What does the campus provide itself? Most of the near 100 University bands are rock-oriented in some form. Look at the list of Battle of the Bands winners from previous years. Failed Silence, Brie Sullivan, Center of the Earth and Our Friend Rippy. Runners up - Harris, Static Mind, No Ones Kind, Second to Mecca. The lsit goes on and on, but they are all "rock" bands in some way shape or form. Yes, Brie is a folk artist, and I did lmp her in there, but I had to be comprehensive.
Even if you are not the biggest fan of Andrew WK, you must agree with me that teh door must be opened to rock acts. That UMass Lowell needs to extend their "diversity" into it's Spring Canival acts as well. Perhaps the reason why people think that a rock group will not draw people is because it has never been done previous. Sign up and show your support of the idea that our campus needs Andrew WK or another CURRENT rock act to play Spring Carnival.

    I would absolutely love to see Andrew WK play the spring carnival. It's my third year here and that would be an act I would finally enjoy.

    Yes I completely believe that rock acts need to be considered equally with rap acts. This is only fair to the many students on campus. I do not like Andrew WK but I also do not like rap. In fact I didn't see much support for Jurrasic 5 last spring. Pe

    i've been waiting for some "rock" at spring carnival.
  • 16 January 201038. Kevin
    I think a FUN rock act, one that will get people dancing and just having fun in general (a la Less Than Jake) would be perfect for Spring Carnival.
  • 15 January 201037. Adam

  • 15 January 201036. Dan

  • 15 January 201034. Amanda

    Rock & Roll... simply rocks.
  • 14 January 201031. Mary
    I feel as though many of the acts who have performed in past years have been great, but are also somewhat "out of date". A more current rock band would totally make an impact at UML. Amherst has had big name artist perform on their campus, why can't Low

    I agree. AWK needs to make his presence at UML while I'm here. and other rock bands as well.
