Cavoto and Rimm hope that Macklemore and the Modstock concert will be well received by BC students. If the event is successful, Rimm foresees similar plans for the coming years—a paid and ticketed Fall Concert and a free, larger-scale Modstock.
“We really wanted to make sure that this is something that people will remember,” Rimm said. “You’ve had people talk about the Spring Concert in the past but no one really has gotten that excited for it, and not a lot of people get that excited for Modstock. We want people to be looking forward to the show and we want to make sure we’re using students’ money in the best way possible. Why should students be paying for student activities fees and have to buy tickets on top of that? It might be worth it for one show a year, but if we can give students this entertainment for free, why not do it?”
