Ke$ha to headline Block Party 2013

UPDATE: Trey Songz and Drop City Yacht Club added to the lineup for the April 26 concert in the Carrier Dome with the auto-tuned pop star.

Is Syracuse University ready to get sleazy? Let's sure hope so.

Glitter-infused popstar Ke$ha will headline Syracuse University's annual year-end concert Block Party, joined by singer Trey Songz, the campus programming board University Union announced Tuesday.

Kesha Rose Sebert, more commonly known as Ke$ha, broke into the mainstream American pop charts in early 2009 after appearing on Flo Rida's No. 1. single, "Right Round." She released her first album Animal, and EP Cannibal in 2010, featuring hits like "Tik Tok" and "We R Who We R." Her eighth top 10 single, "Die Young," came on the heels of the release of her second album Warrior in December 2012. Ke$ha's become known for her use of auto-tune throughout many of her songs, as well as her party-girl, drink-till-you-drop themed lyrics.

Having produced five albums since 2005, Songz has earned Grammy nominations for R&B tracks "Can't Help but Wait" and "Heart Attack," as well as an album nomination for Ready in 2010. Also, Songz has acted in movies including this year's Texas Chainsaw 3D.

Block Party is scheduled for Friday, April 26. Tickets are $15 for SU students and $40 for the general public. The student pre-sale will start on Tuesday April 2 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster, and will be available in the Schine Box Office on Friday April 5 at 12 p.m. General public tickets will go on sale on Friday April 5 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.
