Student life at Stout can get pretty hectic. Classes and organizations are bound to eat away at your schedule. An opportunity to relax and unwind is needed more often than not. Luckily, the campus entertainment organization Blue Devil Productions (BDP) is here to help. Every year BDP hosts a multitude of events spanning across music, comedy, and film. Read below to check out what’s upcoming.
This year BDP is giving students a varied set of options for musical performances. Minnesotan dubstep artist Vaski will be making his second appearance at Stout on September 17. The soulful Pieter Oliver, notable for his distinct blend of Pop, R&B, and Hip-hop, performs on September 24. And don’t miss Indie punk rockers, Time Atlas, who will be hitting the university sound waves on October 15.
Imagine the weirdest double date ever. Have you got it? Good, now keep that in mind and compare notes on September 25 when BDP hosts the mystery/comedy film The Overnight. If creepy dates movies aren’t your thing, then keep stick around for the smash-hit animation film Minions on October 9. All movies take place at Applied Arts with 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. showing times.
Laughter is one of the best ways to combat school year stress. Be sure to catch two of BDP’s biggest comedians on Homecoming week. The singing comedy group Dakaboom, who found fame in comical renditions of popular songs, will perform on September 30. Then, on October 2, Taylor Tomlinson will take the stage with her deadpan hilarity.
Every year, BDP hosts three Open Mic nights where students can showcase their own talents onstage. Musicians, spoken word poets, and jugglers are just a few of the many acts seen in the past. The first Open Mic takes place on October 8.
