Trippy Turtle booked for first Bandersnatch of fall semester

University Union announces the Oct. 14 concert will feature support from one or more acts to be announced later.

Update (Sept. 28): GoldLink, a D.C.-based rapper, will open the show, as per University Union social media updates.

Apparently our pleas for guitar music have fallen on deaf ears.

The first Bandersnatch show of the fall 2014 semester will feature Trippy Turtle, an enigmatic electronic artist who came to be known through his colorful SoundCloud page. The show will be held Oct. 14, University Union announced tonight.

Tickets are $5 with an SU/ESF ID and go on sale tomorrow at the Schine box office.

Supporting artists will be announced later, the UU statement said.

In addition to churning out squiggly Day-Glo club jams like "NaNa" and "Trippy's Theme," Trippy Turtle spends his/her/its time giving completely non-informational interviews and abusing the turtle emoji on Twitter. The songs, however, are danceable enough to keep a small crowd entertained for an evening. As per Trippy Turtle's SoundCloud tags, the music falls into the category of "Jersey Club" -- infer from that what you will.

It's still early, but is it asking too much to get a few analog instruments on stage for a show? In the recent past, bands like Real Estate and St. Lucia have rocked the Schine Underground.

Maybe we'll get our non-laptop music concert one of these days. In the meantime, we're staying tuned.
