Last night was a heart-racing, sweaty-palmed night for both parties. So, we apologize to keep your heart-racing through today, for we also have an important announcement. It’s more about your social life next semester and not the next president of the United States, but still important.
WUD, or Wisconsin Union Directorate, is bringing you a band that blew up the music charts last year with their release of “We Are Young,” and album release of Some Nights. That’s right friends, Fun. will be performing in Union South: Varsity Hall on Thursday, January 24th, 2013. “Some Night” at the Union will be a full campus event, welcoming back each and every one of you from Winter break with activities scattered all over Union South.
It is not often that our generation comes across a band that is able to break through the mainstream barrier with a matchless sound and has the ability to send chills to all listeners through their anthem-esque tracks. Songs performed by Fun. not only prove the talent of each individual musician but also narrate personal stories, most likely coming from front man Nate Ruess. If one listens to their album Some Nights in order, it is easy to compare this experience to a musical- every word and note interacting with one another to create the larger picture.
Although each song could be dissected bit by bit, we have crucial information about the actual concert that is of the upmost importance.
