Rock-Hop Weekend!!!

***********WARNING: WDCV will not be accepting any more ticket reservations starting Friday at 4pm. OR if we get more than 250.**********

WDCV 88.3 FM is proud to announce its spring concerts to be held on Friday April 16th and Saturday April 17th, during what is to be known as Rock-Hop weekend! And we’re particularly excited to announce Wiz Khalifa as the headliner of Saturday night’s concert.

Both concerts will start at 8pm in the ATS auditorium on the Dickinson College Campus. Featuring 6 artists over the course of two nights, this promises to be one of the biggest events in WDCV’s history!

April 16th will be WDCV’s “rock” night, and features a mixture of up and coming local or indie bands.

The You Know Whos:  A band based in nearby Hummelstown will be the opening act, playing a blend of their own brand of folksy-blues music.

Fugitive Souls: An indie alternative group from Brooklyn, their first EP “Strangers” was released in August.  You can read up on them at http://fugitivesouls.com/

Drink Up Buttercup: Friday’s headliner. They hail from Philly and their first CD “Born and Thrown on a Hook” comes out March 23rd.  Listen to their music at http://drinkupbuttercup.com/

April 17th will be WDCV’S “Hip-Hop” night and includes some of our favorite underrepresented hip-hop artists. (PLEASE NOTE: Saturday will be free to Dickinson students and $10 for people without Dickinson IDs)

DelErium Tremens: Hailing from NYC, DelErium is an underground rapper whose energetic performance will start off the night.

L One Crackeriffic: L One Crackeriffic is an underground rapper from Long Island. Making a name for himself in the tri-state area, he recently released his first album, “Somebody Stole My Rhymebook” in July and is working on his second for 2011.

Wiz Khalifa: Saturday’s headliner is an aspiring young rapper from Pittsburgh. He has released several mixtapes since 2005 and has two more on the way for 2010.  His most recent album, “Deal or No Deal” was released in November of 2009. He has a raw rap style and a unique flow, making him different from most mainstream rappers today. He is a breath of fresh air for any hip hop fan.

The doors of ATS will open at 7pm and the concerts will start at 8pm. Friday’s concert is free to all. Saturday’s concert will be free to Dickinson students and $10 to the public. No food or drink will be allowed into ATS, and we ask you not to bring any bottles to the concert. If we make any plans for advance ticket sales, we’ll let you know.

We’ll see you there!

**********Wiz Khalifa Ticket Information (added 4.14.10)*************

To those of you who are unaware, WDCV 88.3 FM, Dickinson’s radio station, is hosting two concerts this weekend, April 16th and 17th. However, people have come to us with questions and misconceptions, and we wish to clarify some things, particularly regarding tickets for the Saturday night Wiz Khalifa concert.

Admission for both nights is FREE with your Dickinson College ID.

Tickets are also available for those without a Dickinson College ID. The price is $10 (CASH ONLY) and they are first come, first serve basis. Tickets can be reserved in advance  by emailing  wdcvfm@gmail.com. You may reserve multiple tickets. Reserve tickets can be picked up when the doors open at 7PM and must be retrieved before 7:30PM.

Because the Wiz Khalifa concert is free to Dickinson students, and because we have great interest from people outside the Dickinson community, we recommend coming to the concert as close to 7pm as possible. ATS has a limited capacity of 1000 people, and we will not be able to let more people in once that number is reached.

Doors open at 7PM and the concert begins at 8PM. If you plan on buying tickets please arrive early as we are expecting a large crowd for the event.

Thank you very much, and we hope to see as many of you as possible at the concert.

    i dont go to dickinson…but is there tickets? or do you just pay when you get there?

  • MK

    We are not pre-selling tickets, but you can either pay at the door or ask to put them on reserve and then pick it up by 7:30 the night of the concert (just like a will call). If you want to reserve a ticket, you can email wdcvfm@gmail.com with your name, phone, and email. The auditorium does have a capacity but if you get there around doors you should be okay!

    Friday night is free for everyone still right?

    I don’t understand why drink up buttercup is the headliner..Fugitive Souls are clearly the better musicians and are much more professional..or maybe they just knew everyone would leave by the last act to go drink…
