The Associated Students of Claremont McKenna College will host LMFAO on April 2, the Forum can report.
LMFAO, a self-described tech-hop group of two DJ-rappers, is well known for hits such as “Shots”, “I’m In Miami Bitch”, “Party Rock Anthem” and “La La La”, and for one of its members slapping Mitt Romney in the hair.
Their first album, Party Rock, was nominated for Best Electronic/Dance Album at the Grammy Awards in 2010.
“I guess if CMC had a soundtrack,” commented one bitter Pomona sophomore, “it would be Party Rock.”
Tammy Phan noted the group’s reputation for putting on a great concert as key to ASCMC’s decision-making.
“They’re a ton of fun, and will definitely bring the party to Claremont,” Phan said.
The concert is scheduled to be held in Big Bridges Auditorium, coordinated in conjunction with the Student Activities Office. ASCMC has reserved 600 seats for CMC students, subsidized down to $20 a seat.
CMCers can buy their tickets on March 1 at 8:00 PM in McKenna Auditorium. CMC IDs will be checked. Students purchasing can pick up two tickets if holding two CMC IDs.
Tickets for students at the other Claremont Colleges will be $25, and members of the public can buy tickets at Ticketmaster on March 7 for $30.
