Fling bands

This years Spring Fling organizers decided they could please all the people all the time, or at least theyd try.

Thats no mean feat, judging from the range of responses we got when we asked students before the organizers announced their picks who they thought should headline Spring Fling. Marilyn Manson to Boyz to Men seemed to us like a gap never to be bridged.

Imagine how impressed we were, then, with the pairing of alt-rockers Ben Folds Five and hip-hop artists the Roots. Brilliant. Solomonic. Its a pair of choices that should satisfy just about everyone on campus.

We know from our mini-survey it will certainly satisfy Asher Hawkins (C03). So look for him in the audience. He picked the Roots as his preferred headliner in our preannouncement survey.

Dave Matthews. . . or Madonna. Shed be the best thing that ever happened to me. And maybe G-Love as one of the other bands, but not the headliner.
