Miike Snow will headline the first Bandersnatch show on March 30.

PREVIEW: Miike Snow’s MySpace

The Daily Orange broke the news this morning that the Bandersnatch concert series announced its first concert this semester—Miike Snow. As some of you know, UU was targeting Miike Snow with the survey they put out at the beginning of the year. It’s not a bad selection, to be honest, but this news makes you think more about that mystery act at Block Party. Delorean, a Spanish electro-pop group, will open up for Miike Snow and I’m a little more excited for these guys. Either way, it’s going to be a synthesizer-heavy show in the Schine Underground at 8 p.m.

Editor’s Pick#286: Breaking down Block Party’s “Surprise Act” by tjwell01

No, Passion Pit is not going to be the big "surprise" act for Block Party this year.

The Drake announcement for Block Party was expected, but what wasn’t expected was the hush-hush mystery of a “surprise middle act.” The act will be named later, but there’s enough information available to break down the mystery. The Newshouse’s Otto-Tune blogger, Nathan Mattise, does a solid job of analyzing the possible candidates that might be the surprise act. It’s more than speculation, because Mattise refers to the student survey posted online, highlighting UU’s thought process to fill out the lineup.

Drake was on the list for UU’s headlining act, along with Common, Kid Cudi, Ludacris, MGMT, Modest Mouse, Mos Def, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend and Weezer. We know how this played out.

However, the list for the possible supporting acts goes as follows: 3OH!3, Cobra Starship, Passion Pit, Keri Hilson, LMFAO, Lykke Li, Miike Snow, Pitbull and The-Dream. Now, it’s easy to eliminate candidates by process of elimination based on their tours already scheduled, and who is available for April 30th. It also makes sense for the band to be near by Syracuse, NY at a nearby date.

Let’s break it down:
