Plain White T’s at Rocktoberfest: Food Drive for Tickets to Show in Dodd This Afternoon in Washroom

1 min read


The “Plain White Tease” is over, and Giant Productions and Class Council have announced the chart-topping band as this year’s Rocktoberfest headliner.
Due to rain, the show, also featuring the bands Ill Scarlet and The Hint, has been moved from the Goolrick Athletic Fields into Dodd Auditorium.
As the capacity of Dodd is approximately 1200 people, a canned food drive starting today at 5 p.m. in the Washroom will be held to distribute the limited number of tickets.
Students are allowed two tickets each with their UMW ID, and each ticket will come at the cost of two nonperishable food items. The food will subsequently be donated to the Fredericksburg Food Bank. Free food will be provided in tents outside of Dodd.
“I’d encourage people to get there at 5 or earlier,” said Chrissie Woolsey, junior co-chair of Giant Productions. “They’re a popular band and if 600 people are there ahead of you, you’re probably out of luck.”
The last minute changes were a collective decision by Class Council, Giant Productions, and OSACS.
