Here are two things that college kids love: free stuff and good music. At Fool’s Gold Day Off, both will be available.
On Sunday, a host of indie rap and electronic artists will gather at Balch Fieldhouse for a free concert from 2-8 p.m. Entrance is gained via RSVP.
The concert was arranged by Fool’s Gold in collaboration with Program Council.
“They’re using our facilities, and we’re helping them out a little bit with some other aspects, but really they have their own setup,” Thomas Regur, a senior at CU and public relations director for Program Council, said. “They came to us and proposed the idea.”
Performers include DJ Canada, Danny Brown, Carnage, Casey Veggies, Nick Cathdubs and Gladiator. In past Fool’s Gold events, DJ Premier, Kanye West and Drake have made appearances.
Students are drawn to the event by the prospect of free entertainment. Some, like freshman theater major Alyson Cohen, know many of the artists who will be in the show.
“I like music, and I like being involved,” Cohen, 18, said. “I just like going to concerts in general.”
Christian Hee, a 22-year-old senior majoring in advertising and psychology, emphasized she’ll attend because she enjoys supporting new and independent artists.
“I think it’s really important to support independent musicians,” Hee said. “I intern for a music management company, so I know how hard it is to be successful in the music industry.”
