calvinFor those of you who were expecting a live show from Calvin, I’m betting you were all a little disappointed when you found out he wasn’t singing. While there was minimal advertising for the event (not evencept a huge A0 poster outside the union like there was for Sister Bliss last year), what adverts were up did say “DJ SET” on them, so don’t blame the organizers for not telling you, cause they did, you just weren’t looking hard enough.

Beyond that, he did a great job. He got the crowd going (playing some of his own stuff) and for the most part, threw down a really well thought out and put together set including one of our personal favorites, Duck Sauce. So, before you all go ranting about how it wasn’t worth going to see, consider this: no one has ever gotten so many people into really good dance music in this town before. Yes thats right, the music he played was good. There I said it! And for that, I salute Mr. Harris.

Some more ear candy for you all:

It took less than a day for all of the online tickets for Calvin Harris in Venue 1 to sell out. The number one question I’ve been hearing around town is “is Calvin actually coming?” I guess that question has kind of been answered by the Union earlier today when they started selling tickets but for those of you who are still unsure, I can tell you with absolute confidence. CALVIN IS COMING. I’ll see you all there!

Its official, Calvin Harris is coming to St. Andrews. According to the facebook event (I know – reliable source, right?), he is playing early in dundee then gonna run over hear for a short set (probably from 12-1). No word on the price yet, but I’m gonna guess no less than £9 pre-sale then probably £12 or £13 at the door. That means buy your tickets early, kids!

And now for your listening pleasure:

The School Girl Bop by Dan

Probably my favorite of the whole year. The school girl bop is a must for any fresher hoping to fulfill a lifetime fantasy. Tonight in Venue 1 at the Union. If you grab a drink from the main bar before 11PM you get free entry. Its gonna suck What a deal!

I will say though, as they did last year, it should have been later on in the school year. I think establishing a more consistent “themed” bop is necessary before introducing such a good idea to the freshers. My no.1 worry for tonight is that people won’t be dressing up. That just ruins the whole night for everyone. Also, if anyone is wondering, we definately wont be there totally will be there.

First Night Of Freshers: Where to Be by Dan

I have no idea.
There is a bop in venue 1, not much going on in the vic, raisin, west port, rule, and is mckays even open at this point? Word on the street is that something interesting is happening in Venue 2 but I have no idea when that starts and how true that rumor is. I’m sitting in the main bar of the union right now. Had a chat with the bartender earlier who was saying that this is one of the biggest nights of the year for them. While I don’t know exactly where to be, I can tell you its a night you don’t want to miss.
