Props to Energy Rush

Yet again the one day fest brings in big names, with Ludacris and T-Pain coming to Dartmouth this weekend.


Hopefully T-Pain will grab a TIBS croissant this weekend.

So the thing about Energy Rush---and it's possible that because we're old and love guitars and don't have or really know any children that we're just going to come off as ignorant---but the thing about Energy Rush (formerly Summer Rush) is that is has consistently brought huge people to town and doesn't get a lot of props for that. For instance: Rihanna at the height of "Umbrella"-mania, LMFAO in 2010, Ludacris and T-Pain this year, and---fun fact alert!---both Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, when they were just rolling with the label development machine. Think about it---Gaga once roamed the Dartmouth streets, probably wearing pants, maybe for the last time.

w/T-Pain, Ludacris, Far East Movement, Anjulie and Dru, Saturday August 25 at Alderney Landing, 2 Ochterloney Street, 3pm, $55,
