Nappy Roots coming to WKU/ Jim Breuer show

[email protected]

To the Campus Activites Board:

Bring Nappy Roots back to WKU. Bring any and every entertainer that you can get your hands on. But on behalf of myself and the hundreds who stood out in the cold for hours to see Jim Breuer this past Thursday night, only to be told that we weren’t getting in, please find a venue that can accommodate everyone. An 800-seat theater just doesn’t cut it when you bring a nationally known comedian to our campus. I understand that you had to fit the date into his schedule, and that other venues (ie. VanMeter) were already booked, but not everyone can get in line for an 8:00 p.m. show at 4:00 in the afternoon. If you happen to get Nappy Roots to add us to their campus tour, keep a few things in mind:

1. They are extremely popular–find a place big enough for everybody, or expect a riot.

2. If you’re worried about rain at an outdoors concert, find an venue that has a roof…maybe an ARENA?

3. Closed-circuit television and a few strategically placed big-screens. If you can’t get everyone to the show, then give us the next best thing.

Finally, to the lucky 800 who got to see Jim Breuer, congrats. For the rest of us, better luck next time I guess.
