While not officially confirmed by Bowdoin's Campus Activities Board (CAB), online concert schedules suggest that Sean Kingston and Santigold are slated as headliner acts for Bowdoin's Ivies Weekend, with Saturday, April 25 performances listed for both on campus.
Sean Kingston's official Web site and MySpace Music Page list an April 25 concert at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. The Miami-born and Jamaican-raised R&B, reggae and pop artist has the chart-topping songs "Beautiful Girls," "Me Love," and "Take You There."
Contra, who formerly toured as a DJ with M.I.A. and is now touring with Santigold, has a MySpace Music page listing an upcoming show at "Bowdoin University" for the same Saturday in April. Alternative rock artist Santigold, compared in style to M.I.A. with 1980s pop influence, is known for her songs "L.E.S. Artistes," "Creator," and "Lights Out."
Head of CAB Katherine Finnegan '09 said in an e-mail that these acts are not confirmed by the College, as they have not received contracts back from the artists. She said the CAB plans on releasing information about the booked Ivies performers when contracts come in.
