Students await White Panda, Super Mash Bros.

White Panda

It’s the spring fling students wait for all year: The annual Mercyhurst University Spring Fest concert is slated for 8 p.m. May 3 in Garvey Park.

This year’s nationally touring acts are DJ darlings The White Panda and Super Mash Bros., bringing their danceable, nostalgia-heavy mashups to the stage.

Ever wonder what it would sound like if Tom Petty and The Notorious B.I.G. jammed out? The White Panda’s mashup “Mo Free Mo Fallin’” should give you an idea. One could liken the fusion of Petty’s iconic acoustic guitar lick and Biggie’s sick beats to chocolate-covered bacon: two amazing but opposite entities that somehow work perfectly together.

Super Mash Bros. puts it best themselves: “These party paratroopers will touch down in a city with nothing but a couple of laptops and music scientifically proven to make booties bounce, leaving a sea of sweaty, satisfied partiers in their wake.”

The Spring Fest party starts at 3 p.m. with free food and festivities for students in Garvey Park, including a photo booth, airbrush tattoos, spin art shutter shades, T-shirt crafts made popular by Pinterest and many more freebies and giveaways sponsored by Mercyhurst Student Government and Student Activities Council.

The rain location will be the Sister Carolyn Herrmann Student Union.

Mercyhurst undergraduate students get first dibs on concert tickets, but if any additional are available, they will be open to graduate students, Mercyhurst faculty/staff and guests on May 1.
