This Friday night was the Bryn Mawr Concert Series concert of the semester! Instead of our usual 2 concerts per semester, we did one big concert. Gallant won our voting survey for the main act, Sydney and Ann (2 BMCS committee members) chose Lauv, and I chose Javelin as the other acts.

3:00PM: A BMCS committee member and I go shopping to buy the food and equipment requested by the artists. Gallant wanted 1 case of water, tea, honey, coffee, veggie tray, hummus, sandwiches. Javelin wanted 1 case of water, drumsticks, 2 9V batteries. Lauv wanted 1 case of water and 4 pack of energy drinks. (We hit up Acme, WaWa, Trader Joe’s, Rite Aid.)

My song suggestions:
- Lauv: Reforget, The Other
- Javelin: Light Out, Vibrationz
- Gallant: Weight In Gold, Open Up
- Lauv is only 21! Gallant is 24! They both went to NYU!
- Javelin members are cousins.
- This was Lauv’s 1st live show and his 5th show ever!
- My friend dressed up in yellow so she could be gold. She wanted Gallant to pull her “weight in gold.”
