"The Good Husbands - Utopian House Party"

There are countless factors that go into a party’s success or failure, many of which are simply a matter of luck; who ultimately shows up, whether the cops bring festivities to an early end, and whether inebriated guests throw up in the proper receptacles are all matters decided by fate. One thing you can control, though, is the music playing in the background. If the Utopian House Party had a soundtrack, it would most definitely feature the Booth debut and latest promo single from Friday Harbor, Washington crew The Good Husbands. Here, beatsmith Hakan Mavruk‘s light, summery boardwork backs SAT, T-Hart, Lingo and Riv as they outline their perfect day, taking detours to reflect on the importance of hustling hard and following one’s dreams. Wave + Bird direct the joint’s official visuals. Fans can cop this record as part of DJ Smiles’ The State of the Come Up, Vol. 1 compilation, released to the ‘net back in January. - richard


MUST HEAR! The Good Husbands’ debut mixtape is finally here! Coming out of the Northwest, and more specifically Friday Harbor, WA, The Good Husbands are a group of non-married men who are married to creating feel good music, much like fellow Washington natives The Blue Scholars, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Sol, and Grynch. You know The Good Husbands from their underground hit “Things I Haven’t Done”, but they have much more to offer like this whole mixtape with summertime vibes. A majority of the mixtape is self-produced by Satin of the group, but Philly’s Big Z cranked out a hot beat along with a couple dope beats from 9th Wonder. Guest appearances on the tape are from Mike Stud, Alysha Lynn, and Miles Cobos. Enjoy and follow The Good Husbands on facebook and twitter. - JSCHRAMM23

"Spring Fling: Tons of Room but nowhere to go"

Spring Fling, the concert series Boise State has made an annual occurrence, headlined with Mike Posner on Saturday, May 4.

Posner, following in the wake of Lupe Fiasco and Flo Rida, targeted a much younger demographic than his predecessors.

Boise State’s Taco Bell Arena was scattered with high school students, young children with their guardians, dorm residing freshmen and a few lingering upperclassmen, most of whom do not possess vehicular transportation, thus leaving Boise State’s campus parking lots, pretty bare.

So what is the draw for most of these minors?

Surprisingly, not Posner himself, but a range of other reasons.

“It sounded like fun, nothing better to do,” said Tanner Wollen, a sophomore supply chain management major.

Wollen’s friend, Hayden Laabs, a freshman criminal justice major said, “I hate Mike Posner. I came with my best friend, who’s a year older than me, who made me come to this school, so that’s why
I came”

Kayla Tucker, a freshman business and human relations major, said she had actually never heard of Mike Posner.

Tucker said, “I came because my boyfriend’s in town from Spokane and it would be something fun to do with him.”

Tucker continued, “All of Mike Posner’s really popular songs that I know, I didn’t even know that he sang them.”

Posner, known for the hits “Cooler Than Me” and “Please Don’t Go,” topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 2010. Recently, he has been working behind the scenes, writing and producing hits such as Justin Bieber’s recent single “Boyfriend.”

Posner’s opening acts Aylen and The Good Husbands were quite the draw themselves, receiving positive reactions from the audience.

“Good Husbands was the act we were looking forward to. They’re a good act, they have a lot of fun,” said Tanner.

“Good Husbands was better than Mike Posner,” said Laabs.

However, there was more buzz concerning seating than the quality of the music, with tension regarding Bowl and Floor seating.

“Everyone was paying more attention to not being able to get on the floor,” Tucker said.

There was a great deal of confusion concerning the price of floor seats. It was suggested many times that the free student tickets meant that students were not granted the luxury of getting close to the performers, since they only possessed the bowl ticket.

Those students who brought along paying guests, were given one floor ticket and one bowl ticket, thus instilling confusion and conflict over the location of seating both couples and groups separately instead of together.

Many were told that preference was only given to those who bought their tickets early and floor seating was sold out.

However, there was plenty of room left on the floor, not to mention the influx of seats available overhead.

This year’s Spring Fling was sponsored by GetInvolved, hosted by DJs Lucky and Huggie of 103.3 KISSFM and advertised by both Chili’s and the Ram off of Broadway.

However, the turnout of Boise State students, mainly upperclassmen, was still sorely lacking.
