In preparation for Tomorrow’s annual CapJam celebration that’s happening on the practice fields behind the student union, we here at WXCU thought it would be a good idea to take a virtual sit down with the 5 acts that will be performing at CapJam from 1-5PM tomorrow and ask them some hard-hitting questions about Big Things, Studying Tips, Songs of the Summer, and More!
What is the Largest thing that you have encountered in your life?
Amherst (Future Funk Producer playing at 3:45)– 24 ounce can of red bull
Neuhues (Poppin’ DJ playing at 2:15) – The earth’s crust.
The Plebeians (Indie Rock Darlings playing at 1:30PM) – probably the housing market crash
The Bascinets (Indie Rock Sweethearts playing at 4:30 PM) – a tie between “Clifford the Big Red Dog”, “Tristan’s big ego”, and “Liam’s Big Stink”
Island//Education (Funky Jokesters playing at 3PM) – Beth Paul’s limitless desire to help capital and its surrounding community.
Do you have any studying tips for finals coming up in a few weeks?
Island//Education– Just get A’s and you’ll be fine
The Bascinets – Use number 3 pencils to get an extra leg up on the competition.
Neuhues – Do more than tell yourself you should study, and order copious amounts of food
The Plebeians– Learn how to properly spell our name T-H-E *space* P-L-E-B-E-I-A-N-S
Amherst – get your hands on a copy of “an extremely goofy movie,” the direct to vhs sequel to a goofy movie. if you watch the movie there’s this studying montage where goofy is like doing pushups while reading books and stuff. study this montage and learn from it.
What do you think the “Song of the Summer” will be in 2017?
Amherst – “Paralyzer” by finger eleven
Neuhues – “Africa” by Toto
Island // Education – “Fat” by Weird Al
The Plebeians – Hopefully some super song mashup between Nickelback and Limp Bizkit
The Bascinets – I dunno, but hopefully some type of collab between Soulja Boy and Michael McDonald.
Why should people come see you at CapJam?
The Plebeians – People should come see us at capjam because we’re fun, exciting, and ridiculously attractive
The Bascinets – We promise poorly executed banter between every song.
Neuhues – Because large PAs and Subs are always your friends. And you wouldn’t want to let your friends down.
Amherst – i stole the rig that icp uses at their shows to spray the audience with faygo and i might break it out if the mob of juggalos that has been trying to track me down for the last 3 months doesn’t catch me before saturday
Island // Education – They really shouldn’t
