The alternative rock group X Ambassadors will take center stage as the official headliner for this year’s spring concert accompanied by opener, a rising comedic rap sensation Lil Dicky, which will take place on April 17 in the Anderson Center.
In collaboration with the University of Mary Washington, the UMW Campus Programming Board announced last Friday, March 11, the official lineup for this year’s highly anticipated spring concert, an event that is already making noise around campus.
According to the CPB spring concert Facebook page, doors to the event will open at 7 p.m. and the concert will begin promptly at 8.
Ticket sales have already kicked off beginning this past Monday and are on sale $5 per ticket for students and $15 per ticket for non-students. Tickets can be found in three locations on campus including the Student Activities and Engagement office, the University Center and on Campus Walk in front of Lee Hall.
X Ambassadors, who originated from Ithaca, New York and established a name for themselves back in 2009, has most recently made a name for itself on the radio. Popular songs such as “Renegades,” “Jungle” and “Fear” featuring the Imagine Dragons are among their repertoire of songs.
Meanwhile, rising comedic rap artist David Burd, alias “Lil Dicky” brings an innovative, comedic twist on the rap game. Establishing a name for himself in 2013, Lil Dicky is most well-known for songs such as “Professional Rapper,” “Save Dat Money” and “The Antagonist.”
