In regards to the easiness of Purchase Girls, it's nice to hear that the campus has not changed in the 5 years since I left it. Traditions still stand.

something that may not have been mentioned but I thought was amazing at the time was about 3 years ago Despot (Def Jux Records) was a student and in charge of booking the acts and after a few students complained that there wasn't enough culture in culture shock he changed the named to Vulture Cock as a big fuck you. I think Gza headlined that year ... all I remember was Lightning Bolt and then waking up the next afternoon.

Unless I missed the installation of an American Apparel in Fort Awesome, no tragically hip Brooklyn Vegan reader really has any business at all being at Purchase next weekend. stay home and organize your collections of ironic sunglasses or some shit. the cops here are redneck mongoloids who would throw the very students they protect off campus if they could...hipster tourists really don't stand a chance.

Nobody wants to "trash the campus", yet, perhaps some NYU people would like to take a road trip next week and have a nice time at an OUTDOOR festival.

We will put our trash in the trash can, etc.

Why is it SUNY Purchase people come to NYU and crash OUR events saying hey be "cool" etc. but it is not "cool" to go to their events...

WTF...

Who said anything about trashing, crashing is not trashing.....

Please post the info re: SUNY PURCHASE CULTURE SHOCK 2008 on any board, craigslist, myspace, facebook site you can do....

It is not a crime to go to a PUBLIC school on PUBLIC property and watch a show.

They never close of Washington Square Park to NYU.

If someone trashes something or commits a crime then there are consequences but to shut people out who just want to have fun is not what music or america is all about.

AGREE OR DISAGREE???

Most of the time it is found to be that the people who have done the damage to the campus are in fact NOT students attending Purchase. We've had toilets ripped out of the bathrooms, broken windows, stolen property, everything. I'm just sick of having to pay extra fees etc. at the end of the semester for something that I didn't do, I don't give a fuck who comes as long as people aren't rude, and do trash the campus.
&even if it is an open campus, you need a guest pass to go to the events, especially if you plan to park your car on campus; they'll ticket everyone without a pass that weekend. Make friends with some SUNY Purchase kids so that you don't get kicked out. And hey, not all of us crash your NYU shows.

and everyone should come to culture shock. the lineup is sort of disappointing, there were so many exciting rumors but it's still a show.

purchase girls, purchase people are good dudes, and fun. sometimes, quite often, easy. it's going to be a good time no matter what. who doesn't like college students who just want to dance?

culture shock is the shit in comparison to the cool kids coming to nyu.
and its free in comparison to seeing these bands in the city.

So why is SUNY Purchase posting ARMED GUARDS to keep non-students out. Real mature. A NYU, a STUDENT admits people to an event. We do not hide behind anyone....

State income and sales taxes and lotto proceeds help fund SUNY....why can't I go to this event without sneaking thru the woods our arriving early and waiting...?

I do not want to steal the crappy laptop of a SUNY student nor would I trash your run down unlocked buildings.....I have been there, it looks like a state mental institution....

Why is someone of MY OWN generation accusing me of intending to steal and vandalize by wanting to attend a music festival..............?

To everybody who thinks that their are "armed guards" or that it is at all difficult to sneak in, it's not at all. I've gone two of the last three years and I've never had a problem getting in.

First year I actually manage to drive onto the campus both days. Last year I parked a little way down the main road and walked onto campus. Not hard at all. I even managed to get by the actual security to see Girl Talk in the student center last year.

Just don't be stupid and you'll have no problem.


Random side note: Cat Power following Lightning Bolt was the worst programing mistake ever. Chan knew it. The Brian's knew it. The audience knew it. But yet it still happened. Tragic.

If you are refused, get the name and title of the person who refused you and complain to SUNY Central in Albany. Write a letter to the Chancellor.

Posted by Anonymous | April 14, 2008 8:04 AM

Just so everyone knows... they check IDs at the entrance of the college. Its a small school, with only one entrance open. If you are not a student, and not on a guest list, you will not be allowed in. I went there for 4 years, and had my friends turned away at the door. On the plus side, if you do get in, there is a $2 beer tent. GO Hipsters!!

3:11 - not true. there is not "one entrance", the bands play on a stage set up on a big lawn/courtyard/quad/whatever you want to call it. there's no guest list or anything, you just go. i thought it would be difficult last year (they tell you that you need to be signed up as a guest of a student) but that isn't true. you just go. anyone telling you otherwise is bullshitting you.

Posted by Anonymous | April 14, 2008 4:51 PM

I'm a purchase student, although it "technically" is a student only show, the security doesn't start checking ID's at the entrance until 5 or 6 pm. If you show up early in the day, you will have no problem getting in =)

Don't bother going to this. I've been working at this festival for many years. I'm a musician and a big music fan. I have not been impressed with the performances over the years. Dan Deacon is the exception. He makes you laugh.

Posted by Anonymous | April 14, 2008 6:36 PM

6:36 is a SUNY Purchase Weenie who is afraid someone will steal his crappy laptop out of his shithole dorm room. This is a cool show which THESE students do not DESERVE. The above is just saying that to disuage YOU from having a good time at a festival YOUR taxes paid for.

Moreover, this is one ROAD entrance for cars. It is an OUTDOOR show on a 26 acre campus with no fence. You can walk in. People avoid the gated entry to the southern border of this country so YOU can handle this.

WHY NOT STTEND THE FREE SHOW YOURSELF AND MAKE YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT. ANYONE SAYING "IT SUCKS" IS JUST GETTING YOU NOT TO COME AND ENJOY SOMETHING YOUR TAXES PAY FOR !!!!!!!!!

7:07 - Enough with the taxes crap you nitwit


The budget for the festival comes from a MASSIVE pool of money that comes from an "activity fee" charged to ALL 4,000 students.

If you're going to go, then just go. At the end of the day none of the students are going to care if a bunch of non-student indie dorks show up. But don't put yourself on some high-horse and say that the students don't "deserve it"

Posted by Anonymous | April 14, 2008 8:34 PM

We don't deserve a concert we payed for? ...Weird. your taxes do not pay for this. Our student activity fee does and is is organized by students. Students book the bands.

I don't have a problem with people coming from off campus but I do mind that sculptures get broken, people end up getting hurt, and our area is simply not respected by a lot of the people who show up. I hear about more rapes on my campus Culture Shock weekend than I do throughout the entire rest of the school year and that is a problem to me. So by all means come if you can get in but if you see something you know shouldn't be going on going on, DO something about it. We have to live in the mess when you get to leave.

If YOU ever come to the Manhattan and see something that should not be going on then "you must DO something about it."

WTF???????????

You are the worst hypocrits. You are worse than Georgr Bush! You presume everyone coming to SUNY Purchase for Culture Shock will commit a crime...

Does NYU close of the village because crime is committed by outsiders and post OUR security at the gate.......

Posted by Anonymous | April 15, 2008 4:30 AM

you Purchase twits are like constipated grandmothers....

so you tell people it is ok to "sneak in" if they do something if they see something not right....well what do our taxes pay for your security for???

maybe if you uptight ladies INVITED fellow students to come and have a nice time without having to sneak around secuirty illegally closeing a public access area, then people may be compelled to get involved...

YOU do ME a favor and stay the fuck out of my village from now on

get it BIOTCH ???

Seems like my generation is the last cool one where people did not need security rules etc. Everyone these days is a free spirit UNTIL it involves HIM or HER DIRECTLTY...

I think anyone under forty should only congregate in chuckie-cheese with their parents alongside them and leave outdoor festivals to a wiser and cooler generation...

I for one stay away from NYU or some SUNY campus....

I agree duke, it seems like these kids, infants really, will act all crazy at someone elses "space" and real retentive at their own....

that is why they need secuirty, wrist bands, and armed guards...

Never has their been a sorrier generation than anyone born after say 1981......

this is seriously the silliest string of comments ever.

Sure, taxes pay for the SUNY system, but the amount that every individual NYS resident pays for SUNY Purchase to operate is negligible at best. We're definitely near the bottom when it comes to funding, but we try to make due. All of the events that non-students might find the least bit interesting or fun are funded by SUNY Purchase students--about $100 a semester. That pays for Culture Shock, Fall Fest, weekly shows and events at the Student Center and other club/organization events such as guest speakers, film showings or art exhibitions.

The grounds are open for ANYONE to visit and use--that's your right as a tax paying citizen. Culture Shock is the only time you MIGHT be turned away at the front of the school and that is simply because there are too many people on campus at that given point. That not only helps protect the campus and students, but non-student visitors as well.

Culture Shock is, by far, the most attended event at Purchase and the students organizing and running the event try to make it as fun and entertaining as possible. We are a small campus with everything pretty centrally located, so damage and theft is a concern; these concerns aren't unfounded--in the past, computers were stolen from Student Government offices, dorm rooms have been robbed and structures have been defaced or damaged.

If you do decide to come to SUNY Purchase for Culture Shock, or any event, we ask that you treat our campus, and for many of us, our home, with respect. I, for one, do the same when I visit another campuses.

as someone mentioned earlier they dont start checking vehicles until the late afternoon.
i actually like outside people, which means i can invite my non-Purchase friends(gasp!) to come hangout and drink beer with me.
So come forth!

haha, Purchase girls are pretty easy.
Although I didn't get laid last year and im a girl. wtf is up with that. hahah.

Posted by bla | April 15, 2008 1:53 PM

I have never been on an NYU campus in my life. I didn't even know that city schools had campuses. I think I walked PAST a dorm once to get to a restaurant so I honestly don't know what anyone is talking about. I believe you that it happens but I wouldn't know from it. I'm either on the SUNY Purchase campus or Philadelphia so don't get your panties in a bunch.

This isn't about territory to me. This is about how it isn't that hard to make friends with a student and have them register you as a guest if you aren't a SUNY student.

Whoever posted at 11:54...if I saw someone getting raped in Washington Square Park which I don't think I've ever been to (I'm an out of state student) I'd call the police or if the person were able to be taken down by someone my size I'd do so. What sort of question is that? Why wouldn't I do something?

As for you 4:30 I never said to sneak in. I said I didn't mind outside people coming. I have one person coming and she is a registered guest and its my responsibility to see that she isn't being a douche. Calling Purchase girls uptight is pretty comical since a few posts above someone was talking about how easy they are (which I can't really argue with). In addition I have no interest in hanging out on your sacred NYU campus. You, however, do not OWN the entire city. What is this, rival gangs? And did you seriously just say biotch?

I never said not to come. I said respect my home like I would yours if I were there. Apparently thats too much to ask. Sheesh.

i never said you specifically would do anything. But that shit DOES happen during culture shock and it really sucks. Where did I say you're going to do anything like that. I don't remember pleading people not to do certain things. I said thats the reason people sometimes don't want people coming from off campus, particularly unregistered. You act like im being cautious for not reason. You should see this campus post shock. All I asked was this if you want to be part of it you should also be caring it people do those things. Looking out for fellow humans can't be that strange of an idea, guys.

Were you saying you don't smoke outdoors because I'd scold you or something? Jesus you guys do think we're uptight.

PS to "mr too cool for a suny school" - sorry you're too cool for a SUNY school. Some of us don't have the luxury going to private schools and living in Manhattan. I also never said you personally would do anything. But people show up here and do rude, drunk, anonymous shit.

well...you did warn us nyu heathens not to do this and that...well since things happen at any concert or any outdoor event you should go on every thread for a live show or festival and tell people "to behave"

you are an uptight constipated old lady....even the other SUNY people say that...they probably even hate you....

and what "luxury" to I have? my family worked hard, i worked hard in school, I work part time, I will have loans to repay, talk about taking care of things, why are our dorms carpeted etc with nice lounges.....I know a visual Arts Proffesor at Purchase who HATES the students there...one girl was found kicking the walls of the building and when arrested it was revealled she had been cutting herself....

it is just really not cool to warn people who did not threaten to do anything not to do anything....

we really just like the live music, we follow these bands, I will now make it known to 420 away from you dweebs who will go running to the campus cops, also NOT to chat up any girls who are purchase studnets at all, they have all these protective Purchase men , no purchase girl shall want to meet a heathen NYU student...

we might do "rude anonymous shit"....

hey I read about a psycho purchase student that robbed a store and murdered the clerk in long island....

I think they should put a fence around your campus to keep you people in, thats why you need armed guards......

post your armed guards, have you parents check for wristbands, wear your college letter sweaters....."P" for pussy...

hey 11:42

"people show up here and do rude, drunk, anonymous shit."

people do that aywhere, no just precious purchase college...

so you should on every thread on every music board telling peope to behave at all events...

sounds like a constipated grandma to me....

wear a "P" sweater to identify yourself as a "registered" student....and you seem so INTO "registering" people...that is way cool

p is for pussy

I do not even go to college. I spport myself as a photog assistant and as a photog am a part of the indie music scene. I have seen scores of college kids come to places like the Market Hotel and think it is their right to piss on the floor, throwthings etc.

I will be their at Culture Shock and be on "the precious list", b aware these bands have padded their "lists" of crew and have distibuted word on how to bypass the campus cops through the woods, arriveearly etc.

These bands want any kind of publicity and the indie music scene has its own vibe shit happens, you can not gumball pop these bands.....net year SUNY Purchse have your festival catered by Chucky Cheese and have Britney Spears perform...

People DO do obnoxious shit at any event. And it annoys me at any event but particularly at when I have to live in the mess afterwards. I'm sure anyone who lives in the area of a concert dreads it and i don't blame them. Someone just talked about people pissing on the floor at a venue. And I'm sure that bothers them and it should. You're acting like I'm saying it only happens here and its my sacred campus I'm protecting. I just don't feel like living in even more of a shit hole than this place already is. You aren't ENTITLED to be here. So if not being irresponsible isn't possible, don't show up.

I'm a pussy why? Because I don't want to live in filth and walk in vomit to get to class on Monday? The blows you make at my manhood by calling me a grandma and a pussy are pretty amusing seeing as how I'm a woman...

And Joe- I doubt UPD is reading this. Its a music festival, not a prison. Security isn't that intense.

And to those discussing getting laid- If you can't get laid at Culture Shock something is probably wrong with you or you weren't trying.

TO THE SUNY PURCHASE ORGANIZER CHICK:

Maybe next year you guys could include other campuses in the Greater New York Area to participate in the cost and organization of the event. You could probably even raise money through vender tables etc. And maybe even make long lasting relationships with people from other schools.

Some people like the music but do not dress all "hip" and "cool" as you. Sorry.

Posted by A Really Lame Hofstra Accounting Student | April 17, 2008 7:16 AM

I also enjoy indie music but when I meet people at concerts and events, girls ask me where I go to school, I say I study automotive service and repair and their eyes glaze over. My mentor at Apex, a kind gentleman of sixty-five years, said he heard the same shit in the late sixties early seventies where he was shunned for his lack of book smarts but when all the hippie chicks VW Bugs died on the side of the road, then he was made to feel "included."

Mr. Hofner says, remember son, all these cool with it college girls will be house frows with mini-vans to service one day and then it will be payback time. I will never be able to discuss Nietzsche and all that but I will be able to convince you of the existence of an abstract named part that needs replacement...

come to fucking culture shock if you want and have fun but don't be an ass about it.

There will be campus police and police from the surrounding towns, so don't be fooled, the campus will have more of a police activity.

And yeah..you won't be able to sneak into the dorm lounges...so just forget about that idea.

Dorm buildings are always open, students prop doors and break locks and leave lounge windows open, the other buildings have nice sofas to crash on, or sleep under the stars on the grass...

did you happen to think that maybe the students of SUNY Purchase are anal because every culture shock extreme damage is done by non students and shit is stolen..wouldn't you be alittle protective knowing past events...hmm YEAH.

for all you assholes looking to find unlocked rooms to steal from, you're dicks.

for those who think that you pay for culture shock with your taxes, you're moronic. you don't.

3:14pm, um, our taxes DO pay for Culture Shock, anyone can audit a SUNY class, anyone can use the facilities for a fee, anyone can walk the grounds, the festival is held outdoors, the area is maintained by state employees who pay taxes, all the campus cops are paid for by us, the event itself , the festival is free, held outside...(cont)

fiasco just cancelled..... sucks

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2008 3:33 PM

(cont)
now lets say I am on the road that adjoins the campus, can I stand on the side of the road, or can only a SUNY student do that? can we heathens listen to the music and watch the sun set, or do you control the air and the sky and the sun and the moon as well....?

BOTTOM LINE: If you look up the SUNY charter you will see that since its inception in 1948 SUNY was to maintain open campuses for all....

You basically get an education for 1/10 of what you would pay at a private school...just like the residents of a high school can use the fieldof it public schools since they PAY FOR IT...

SUNY Purchase Students:

Get over it!!!

You do not own public lands, you do not own "music", these bands have a following and people will get in.

You all come into the city and hang around at NYU things and many time are allowed to remain AT A PRIVATE AFFAIR...funny how you get all uptight.

Anyone can and should go to the concert and it should not even be said if you BREAK the law you will face consequences but not for just being there...

SUNY Purchase - drink your prune juice ! Do it NOW!

they should hold next years festival at chuckie cheese and have their mommies chaperon

Do the Purchase girl with the sunglasses, we are a cool troupe of NYU students who are coming in a few hours, you will not see it nor will we mention it, but, we have nice cars, summer houses in the hamptons, places in the city, we charter small jets to travel, etc, maybe be nice to us and by nice meaning do not report our peaceful presence to the campus cops, and you may just have a summer of hanging in the hamptons, winters jetting places in a charter flight, cars that do not break down, no more crappy food.....and a better existence than any Purchase Man ( if you want to call them that) can offer

As a Purchase student, I think you city "folk" are making too big of a deal. Feel free to try and get in, but you'll probably be stopped by a state trooper. But who knows, you might get in too. Is it worth the time and money from the city to risk it? That's your call.

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2008 3:52 PM

i love all this 'getting in' talk when its a wide open campus with a concert being held on a giant lawn area. there are no walls, hence no entrance to supposedly 'get in.' everyone is 'getting in.'

Posted by Anonymous | April 18, 2008 3:56 PM

just go up there...

worst can happen is they turn you away, go to Port Chester, New Paltz, etc.

if you just peacefully watch the show there is NO ISSUE MAN

this is an outdoor festival at an ungated public land, just go, you may not be able to get a car in, so park somewhere nearby and walk through the woods, make a map, bring GPS, c'mon people, even if they ID you while there, the WORST that can happenis they tell you to leave, then leave, like anywhere else that is PUBLIC property you can be arrested for commiting an ACTUAL crime, but these little SS Hitler SUNY people want to make being on public land a crime !

I would like an investigation as to how these students obtained the money for these student fees. Purchase students are uptight and anal. Everyone remember this when they come to the city.

I am in my sixties. I love music. It has to be new and it has to be live. I will not go to this festival, however, I will say my piece here.I was a New Paltz Student in the early seventies where we had "events" where we invited the community and embraced the chance to be a good neighbor and give something back. I was a Residence Hall Leader at Stony Brook during 1985 Hurricane Gloria and the two week blackout and the campus opened the gym so surrounding residents could shower and get ice.

I am getting weary now, I mostly go to outdoor events or small venues.

I am weary from age but more from this mentality of these times of elitism from the right (where I expect it) and now the left....and even on college campuses....

I have lived my life and I am ready to pass soon but I feel bad for the young people of today and tommorrow. I was blessed to have been born when I was and be young in the sixties/seventies...

the shirts actually had nothing to do with elitism or anything. we made them because our mandatory student activity fee is up for vote this year so the joke is kids employed by the school are literally "paid for by your mandatory student activity fee".

the shirts were just meant to encourage people to vote yes in a few days. we weren't being "nazis".

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2008 9:13 AM

you guys are fucking stupid.
you did not PAY FOR ANYTHING with your state taxes, concerning this concert. each student pays a mandatory student activity fee which actually amounts to a lot of money, which supports all of this culture shock. so STOP trying to claim that you have a right to come to our campus because you fucking don't! this isn't some open call for everyone to come hangout.

this is supposedly a "free" event but EACH STUDENT has paid something, i think twice even for each semester. and yes, our campus is full of stupid hipster blahs, so who gives a shit about ones coming in. just be fucking respectful!! and cool and love the music. just stop claiming you have rights to our campus because you don't.

and as far as some shitty rival between NYU because purchase students come there and crash shows? i have NEVER heard of any NYU shows and if i have i would never go to one.

The previous comment is an excellent example of the results of a SUNY Purchase education.

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2008 10:40 AM

I went to purchase, and came across this posting, and 10:40's comment is totally hilarious. Honestly, coming from someone who has gone to purchase, it wasn't always like this. I understand people are worried about vandalism and theft, but that is why there are $10,0000+ dollars worth of extra cops on campus during CS. The fact is that non-students people can go to purchase and can attend the show, and that is a good thing. This brings positive attention to our school, and after all Purchase is a cool forward thinking place. So for those of you who paid to attend purchase and paid for culture shock, ENJOY IT while it lasts! And, for those who didn't pay just be nice to the purchase kids who did, and to those who put the event together so all could enjoy.

"the shirts were just meant to encourage people to vote yes in a few days. we weren't being "nazis".

if that's the case then i apologize for my remark. It seemed like an obvious reference to this thread to me at the time.

I didn't don't go to Purchase but I went to the festival, as I have in the past.

I didn't grab a water bottle for myself, even though I could have, cause that would be inappropriate being a non-student.

I bought some merch off Casiotone cause I like what he does and want to help support him.

I was there for the music. Many (most?) of the Purchase students seemed to be uninterested in much of the music. If somebody is genuinely interested in the music and wants to support a band(s) that are playing, and if that person is respectful towards the campus, there is no reason why they shouldn't be allowed to attend.

Kind of like illegal immigration, Americans pay taxes and Mexicans come and use our benefits, if that is ok, and Purchase Liberal Weenies support illegal immigration, why can't we crash their little hipster fest....oh cause it affects them directly??? silly liberals, tricks are for kids

"Americans pay taxes and Mexicans come and use our benefits"

It's not that cut-and-dried. Illegal immigrants (they're not all Mexicans, you know -- some of them are even European) pay sales taxes. And those that have phony Social Security numbers not only have taxes withheld from their pay, they pay Social Security and Medicare taxes that they won't get back in benefits (barring another amnesty).

As for those who get paid cash off the books, by and large, they take jobs that there aren't enough legal workers for or that few legal workers would take unless the wage is so high it would prompt the employer to eliminate the position.

(That said, I'm not in favor of maintaining the status quo.)

"

"

If someone can not afford a landscaper because the company pays $12/hr + benefits and then charges $24/man hour then (gasp) that person will have to (gasp) do his or her own yard work more often.

Using your logic, we should have slavery, so slaves can do the jobs for free that nobody will do "unless the wage is so high it would prompt the employer to eliminate the position.".....

Or maybe the upper tier people with $ will have less in their hedge funds......

YOU ARE SUCH AN IDIOT....

If you piece of garbage hipsters can pay $800 for pants maybe you could buy $40 pants and a $10 box of blueberrys.

Illegal is illegal....

Everyone in the country working should be paid ON TH BOOKS and have basic benefits. Like landscapers did 25 years ago when (gasp) most people did most of their own yardwork.....

BUT YOU LITTLE TRUST FUND LIMO LIBERALS WOULD NEVER (GASP) want to mow your own lawn or pay $150 for legal workers to do it........


Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2008 3:07 AM

Well I bought a Mercedes, I will illegally register it out of state because hey, I can not afford New York State Insurance...

Or maybe I could buy a Toyota, used, and have enough money to pay for legal insurance....

Or maybe I do not want to pay for the Mercedes so I will just make an "undocumented purchase" which some simple people just call "stealing"......

And in honor of all of the dumb things you guys posted on here I got super fucked up and I pissed and threw up on your campus. Oh and one of my buddies picked up one of the only actual pretty girls who go there and fucked the shit out of her in his apartment. I remember her saying exactly "Purchase guys are losers"

The thought of Purchase kids trashing Washington Sq. park is hilarious, let alone the thought of us coming to an NYU show ever. NYU does not own Washington Sq. Park, despite the regular appearance of kids walking to class in their pyjamas and Uggs every weekday morning. This is New York City—show some respect.

That aside, Culture Shock '08 was my third and favourite yet.

hey crazy people,

hope you were all able to get onto campus/happy/responsibly intoxicated/nicely tanned/fucked by a slew of freshmen.

wish Fucked Up could've played longer but there's probably a reason they don't do a lot of school shows. otherwise I thought the weekend was pretty cool.

if you weren't able to get a t-shirt, please don't message me on facebook.

thanks!
