The Pros and Cons of Potential Genres Performing at Spring Jam


First, a disclaimer -- I have absolutely no idea who the Spring Jam headliner is. Anything you are about to read is pure speculation. I also love music from every genre, except like ninety percent of country, and more than anything, I love concerts. You’ll have more friendly and casual conversations at concerts than anywhere else because, on the most important topic that would be on your mind at the time, everyone in the crowd is connected on some level. You all love the artist, and you all love the music. Moral of the story: music is awesome.And now that the obvious is out of the way, here’s what I predict:

Genre Option 1: CountryI hate country. There I said it, with the exception being any country song featuring Jimmy Buffett, because he is like the John Wayne of the music industry. However, I would kill for the headliner for Spring Jam to be a country artist for several awesome reasons:
1. Besides a heap of people standing on a porch screaming a mixture of Born in the USA, Brown Eyed Girl, and Don’t Stop Believing, nothing ushers in warm weather like country music blaring outdoors, and I really want warm weather right about now.2. Daisy Dukes.
You get the point. There is a con with country though. It’s not the same indoors. And since the concert is going to be in Mariucci, it’ll really bring down the atmosphere. But who am I kidding? Bring on Zach Brown Band, and let’s all have a good time. 
Genre Option 2: EDM/Dance/HouseIf I can’t get country, give me electronic. I hear those scoffs you’re giving and respond as such -- go on YouTube right now and search Tomorrowland Aftermovie. Now, imagine that with a thousand of your closest friends, craziness ensues, and a good time is had by all. I want Avicii.
Genre Option 3: PopPray that it’s not a pop concert. Not that there aren’t any good pop acts out there. There are, but those acts cost way more than the school can throw at them. Therefore we get stuck with a person that at best we know three or four songs of, which makes for a terrible concert. Which really goes for any genre, but I’d rather listen to a country or electric artist that I didn’t know than some sappy pop act. Same logic applies to rap and hip-hop.
Genre Option 4: Everything ElseI’m a punk and metal fan deep at heart, and while I love head banging in the front row passing crowd surfers up, I’m going to assume that the vast majority of you don’t share that enthusiasm. Any good concert relies on a good crowd. If the crowd is disengaged, then the concert is going to be less than spectacular, and I can guarantee that.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
