Wait... WHO is Performing at Big Show?

Wait… WHO is presenting at the Big Show This Weekend?

 

            The Facebook invite went out for the Big Show and everyone opened the event, excitedly awaiting to read the name of artist or artists who we get to mosh-pit in front of for a night. As the page is loading, your mind is buzzing with who it could possibly be: a pop musician maybe? Some indie band? And then you see the names of the artists: Earl Sweatshirt and Jungle Pussy. Alright, if you guys had the same reaction as I did, the names of the artists provoked an immature “HA” (I know you did it too, don’t judge), which was then followed by some pretty deep confusion; who ARE these people? Well not to worry, I’m here to tell you!
