Live Music before the Football Game this Friday!


On Friday, November 7, 2014 the Bucknell University football team (7-1) plays Fordham (8-1) at 6:30 PM. The game will be televised on CBS Sports Network.  The Athletic Department has partnered with the Undergraduate Executive Internship Program, Bucknell Student Government and Bison Rec to host a student tailgate from 4PM-6:20PM. The tailgate is located on practice field 1 (between the football field and the Christy Mathewson gates) There will be free food and refreshments provided by Coca Cola and Yuengling. The tailgate is open to all students, but if you are over the age of 21 a valid driver’s license and BUID is required to be served. Additionally, three $500 philanthropic donations will be given to the three organizations with the largest attendance at the game. Be sure to provide the name of your organization when you enter the game.

Despite all of these benefits, Campus Vinyl is most excited about the performances from the Thought Police and Manifest Destiny’s Child. They will be performing live throughout the event amidst the yard game tournaments.

thought police tailgate performance

The Thought Police were brought together in 2011 when two musically inclined young men, Jake Perlmutter and Andrew Kilman, chose to blend together their vocal and guitar skills. They quickly acquired Sam Carey as their bassist and more recently, Ryan Sindelar took on duties behind the kit. They're a self-described Indie reggae-rock band whose melodic songs are driven by three-part harmonies and powerful choruses.

Manifest Destiny's Child is a jam band that consists of David Rapp-Kirshner and Eric Kwiatkowski. They’re part of what the consider to be Bucknell’s “underground” music scene known as Bankwet. "Or, if we draw a bigger crowd, you can always bill us as Beyonce," they commented after their most recent school performance at Fall Fest 2014.

Campus Vinyl BucknellU encourages you to attend this awesome event. Aside from the great live music, who can pass up a free meal!
