Two up-and-coming rap and alternative rock artists will be coming to Middlebury in the coming weeks to perform for students and are supported by MCAB’s Small Concerts Initiative, which aims to diversify the college’s concert scene and offer alternatives to the larger Fall and Spring concerts.
Young Prince, a rising rap star from Washington, D.C. will be performing at the Bunker on March 10 (more info here). Slated to perform at the SXSW music festival this year, Young Prince is undoubtedly one to keep an eye on. He has performed alongside Nelly, Chiddy Bang and Spring concert headliner Wale. With a handful of good friends who are students at Middlebury, you can bet that Young Prince’s performance will be high-energy and a generally good time.
Music by plucky alternative rock artist Eric Hutchinson has been featured in episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and American Idol, in addition to Hutchinson’s live appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He will be performing in the McCullough Social Space on March 16 as the headliner of Wonnacott Commons’ “Raise the Volume” fundraiser for local organization HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects). Tickets are $9 for students and can be purchased here or at the box office.
