The Statesman, “The Independent” and “The Press” were able to sit down with both The Cataracs and Mac Miller to talk about their careers, their personal life and their experience with the Stony Brook Concert. We chose some of our favorite questions to put in the issue. If you’re interested in hearing the full interview, it is available on our website, www. sbstatesman.com. All questions below, unless otherwise noted, were asked by The Statesman (Nicole Bansen or Basil John). Interview was edited for cursing.
It’s not every year that you get a fall concert that rivals the attendance and vibe to that of the notoriously big spring concerts at Stony Brook University. But if you want something that comes close to that outcome, all you have to do is get The Cataracs and Mac Miller to perform at the second annual Back to the Brook Concert.
At 5:15 p.m., about 45 minutes after the concert had already started, students waiting to get into the concert charged Staller steps, causing the show to come to a halt and camps officials threatening to chancel the show.
