If I am not a gullible fool, and you are not a gullible fool, then why don’t rumors die out as quickly as they should? Stony Brook University is a hub of conversation where the line between “rumors” and “news” is so blurred that people will seem to believe anything upon hearsay. Perhaps, one of the most pressing rumors I have heard so far are the ones revolving around who will perform at this year’s Brookfest.
It was almost a perfect setup for a great night: The setting sun gave the air a great orange glow, the weather was beautiful, and the crowd was ready to shake off the week they had. The setting could not have been better for SBU when young up-and-comers Grouplove and rap veteran Ludacris came to make the crowd bounce on Friday. The first concert to be held at LaValle Stadium was a momentous occasion, and the crowd definitely reflected that feeling from the get-go. Freshman Karthik Krishnan, a biochemistry major and devoted Grouplove fan, had been waiting for some time for the band to come.
