A concert by hip-hop group Travis Porter, hosted by the Carolina Union Activities Board, will be on this semester’s last day of classes.
But it’s not an LDOC event, said Cierra Hinton, president of CUAB.
“We don’t want to call it ‘LDOC,’ because then you get into the question of who does LDOC better,” she said.
Travis Porter’s performance, which is contracted for $14,000, will be on Dec. 7 — the day after film director Spike Lee will visit campus as a CUAB-sponsored speaker.
Lee is contracted for $25,000, and student tickets are $5.
Hinton said that the proximity of the two events was unplanned.
“It just kind of happened that way,” she said.
CUAB will sponsor several other events during the last week of classes.
Some of these include a student stand-up comedy show, a film marathon and a concert by Mandolin Orange and Mipso Trio — which will happen hours before the Travis Porter show and is a rescheduling of the bands’ canceled concert in August.
