The Merrimack Program Board will host a post-game party in the MPR on Friday night after the hockey game against Boston University. The party is free to the Merrimack community with a Mack Card; each student is permitted one guest.
The highlight of the party will be the announcement of the performer for the 2012 Spring Weekend concert at Merrimack. There will be an all-you-can-eat Mexican buffet as well as a special performance by the YouTube sensation Timeflies.
According to their Facebook page: “Timeflies is a duo that originated in Boston and is currently located in Brooklyn, N.Y. Rob Resnick (Rez), producer, provides the beats while Cal is on vocals. Timeflies produces hip-hop, rap, and pop tracks.”
The duo started making videos of the lead vocalist, Cal, freestyling to famous tracks by pulling random words out of a hat, and have progressed to writing and producing their own tracks, featured on their debut album, “The Scotch Tape.”
“I am really excited Timeflies is coming to Merrimack,” junior Marissa Keach said. “I have been a fan since they first started. I am also excited to find out who is coming to perform for Spring Weekend. I am really looking forward to attend the post-game party.”
Allison Stinson, associate director of student involvement, said tickets for the April 27 Spring Weekend concert in Lawler Arena will go on sale immediately after Friday night’s announcement.
