It’s pretty normal these days to be addicted to music. If you’re anything like me, then you can’t go a day without it. For those of you who have been a student at Radford University for more than a semester, you probably know that Radford tends to host pretty good concerts. The majority of the time they include aspiring music artists of different genres that we all like to listen to. I have attended almost every concert held at the Dedmon Center in the past few years. If you’ve been to any of these events you’ll most likely agree that it seems like a lot of time and effort goes into them. In my opinion, you can’t beat seeing A$AP Rocky for $10, but if there’s a cheaper venue please do share.
Concerts are a great way to have an eventful weekend with your friends and also meet some new ones. We can agree these concerts are great for going out after a long week of class and blow off some steam while having a good time. But sometimes the artists that come to perform aren’t exactly your taste of music, or are maybe just not a very popular artist at the time. I think that this would be a great opportunity to get the opinions of the entire student body on what or who they would like to see come perform at RU. There could be a chain email sent to all students and have a survey asking what genre or artist that they would like to see the most.
I’m in no way saying that R-Space doesn’t do a great job with these events, because believe me they do. It’s pretty cool being able to say you’ve seen big name artists like Mac Miller, and A$AP Rocky perform at your school. But if we all were given the chance to share our opinions on this topic I think that we could have big time concerts year after year. I believe that when more opportunities like these are available to us, it would help take some weight off our shoulders from living a hectic life.
