MGMT news creates buzz

Seconds after last nights announcement that MGMT would headline SpringFest 2013, the Twittersphere was buzzing with all kinds of student reaction.

@dsteigz posted My sophomore in high school self is peeing my pants over the fact that mgmt is doing springfest.

@caddyho seemed to agree: mgmt for springfest fuck yes uvm.

But not everyone was pleased with the headliner.

Way to go UVM getting the worst headliner for springfest, @TheRealWill tweeted.

Set to take place April 27, Burlington will be the second stop for MGMTs 2013 spring tour.

MGMT rose to fame in 2008 with their first LP Oracular Spectacular, which featured the hit singles Electric Feel, Time to Pretend and Kids.

Their second LP Congratulations was released in 2010, and they are currently working on their third album self-titled MGMT which is tentatively scheduled for a June release.

UVM Concert Bureau has also confirmed supporting acts Boombox and Battle of the Bands winner Will Overman as well as Bible Campe Sleepovers.

The Vermont SpringFest college circuit will also include Macklemore and DJ Disco Phantom playing at St. Michaels College April 25, two days before UVMs event.

Perhaps @Elan_uh summed it up best:

Macklemore and MGMT all within 2 days of each other. Vermont schools really know whats up for Springfest.

Tickets will cost $10 for UVM students, $20 for college students and $30 for the public.
