EXCLUSIVE: Yale Spring Fling = Mike Posner, Matt and Kim, the Ying Yang Twins, MGMT

This one’s all ours, baby. Remember that fancy website Yale used to announce their choice of MGMT, just a few hours ago? Here’s an interesting slice of the source code:

<!– %a{:href => ‘http://yalespringfling.com‘} –>

<!– %img{:src => ‘../images/posner1.jpg’, :title => “Mike Posner“} –>

<!– %a{:href => ‘http://yalespringfling.com‘} –>

<!– %img{:src => ‘../images/mattandkim1.jpg’, :title => “Matt and Kim“} –>

<!– %a{:href => ‘http://yalespringfling.com‘} –>

<!– %img{:src => ‘../images/yingyang1.jpg’, :title => “Ying Yang Twinz“} –>

Hoisted by their own digital petard. The code has since been removed, but the background images are still up, links and all:

So there you have it. An eclectic bunch. And yes. You heard it here first.

    This would be awful if it’s the actual lineup. Matt and Kim are pretty good live, but MGMT sucks live. I also find it very hard to believe Ying Yang Twinz (do they really spell it with a z?) were booked, given their biggest hit’s chorus is “Hey b—-h, wait ’til you see my dick.’” Having been involved with Spring Fling planning the past couple years, I can tell you that not offending people is now a big concern, so Ying Yang would be a big shift in the other direction. Plus they’re terrible.

    I think it’s real. I wouldn’t be surprised if MGMT sucked live, but they’re good enough on tape for this lineup to read as a solid one. Come on, remember Sean Kingston? The YCC isn’t very good at checking into the quality of live performances (of course, I’m not sure there’s anyone who would posit that Kingston is good on the radio, either).

    Saw MGMT at Bonnaroo, great concert, but saw Matt and Kim play in LA. They’re fucking awesome! Finally a solid lineup.

    What the hell are you all talking about? THIS LINE UP IS BAD ASS!!!

    We’ll see if it’s for real, but I’m way excited if it is. Mike Posner as the opener??? What a great start to day! and it looks like it only gets better from there on out…

    Dear IvyGate,

    Write an article about the various better lineups that you haven’t covered.

    Also, write articles about other schools when they are covered in mainstream press.

    Love,

    People who care about your future

    I apparently did not look in the code hard enough… Or maybe they removed the obvious stuff by the time I got to the code and only had the less obviously named pictures.
