Gym Class Heroes, VerseCity take on UH
UH’s Student Program Board is ready to let UH students fight for their right to attend the first of its “Large Concert” series.
The limited-entry event — there will only be 1,500 people able to attend the concert — features New York rap-rock outfit Gym Class Heroes. Opening for the band is Houston’s own VerseCity.
“I’m so incredibly excited to have Gym Class Heroes come to (UH),” said Brittney Mathis, the chair of the SPB concert committee. “We have been working on this for a very long time and to see it come to life is surreal.”
The campus is abuzz with the news, which the board announced only two weeks ago following one of the lunchtime concerts it also produced. Students are excited, she said, and still wondering if the event and the band is for real.
“I keep getting questions from students asking, ‘Is it the REAL Gym Class Heroes?’” Mathis said. “And I just kind of laugh and say, ‘Do you think we would actually bring the FAKE Gym Class Heroes?’
“Students have never seen something like this before on our campus, so I think everyone is really looking forward to a great show.”
