Halloween Gongshow!!!



So "Living The Dream" was a huge success. We packed Who's On First with a sold-out mix of 600 upper and underclassmen and started off the school year with a bang. The dancefloor was just how we like it- sloppy and carefree. Just like Natasha Bedingfield, everyone released their inhibitions and felt the sweat on their skin. Because no-one else can feel it for you, only you can soak it in.

As soon as the lights turned on that night, kids were asking when the next Gongshow would be. We all love a good dance party, and they are too hard to come by these days. We knew from "Living The Dream" that we would need a bigger venue (a pair of Gongshow tickets went for $125 on eBay, no joke!). Avalon, which is a famous club on Lansdowne, seemed to be a good fit because of its huge dancefloor, over a dozen separate bars, VIP balcony, and open stage for dancing.

Halloween is one of the best weekends on the academic calendar. Everybody is more into their costumes than they were in 5th grade, and even the tamest partiers do some monster mashing. This party will be an epic Halloween Gongshow. Get online and start planning your costumes. We will be doing an on-stage costume contest, with the contestants being picked out of the first 500 people to come in the door. The winners (in categories like Sexiest individual, sexiest group, sexiest, etc) will go home with huge cash prizes.

You can use many terms to describe these parties. A gongshow. A s**tshow. A disaster. A crime scene. A yard sale. Whatever you call it, know that these are the nights that we will miss when we graduate. See you on the 26th.

NIGHTMARE ON LANSDOWNE STREET.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26TH.
18+, $15 TICKETS.

YOU LIVED THE DREAM,
NOW COME LIVE THE NIGHTMARE.


JOIN THE FACEBOOK EVENT TO RSVP AND GET PRIORITY ON TICKETS. WE WILL PICK 5 PEOPLE OUT OF THE CONFIRMED LIST AND GIVE EACH OF THEM A TABLE IN THE VIP BALCONY. CLICK HERE TO GET IN ON THE GONGSHOW.

Tickets will go on sale on September 1st, when kids start moving in.
Join the event announcement- "Livin' The Dream" on Facebook. This does not guarantee that you will be able to buy tickets, it just gives us your name so that we can message you with ticket distribution details as soon as they go on sale.
The Boston Globe says that this will be the "dirtiest dancefloor of the decade." The Wall Street Journal is predicting Friday morning market fluctuations due to future global business tycoons sleeping-in after the historic gongshow. This is an event where the damsels of Upper Campus will emerge for the first time, only to be challenged by Newton's finest vixens. This may be the only night of the year when senior boys will claim to live in Kostka. This will be an absolute gongshow and a can't miss night.

SPREAD THE WORD.

GONGSHOW@BC- Livin' The Dream



We've always enjoyed hosting parties. For the past two years, parties celebrating the glory of Has Beens Hockey have attracted long lines of BC coeds down Ignacio hallways. Only the elite have been admitted. But on September 7th, the first Thursday night on the academic calendar, the boys from Gongshow@BC have planned a much larger event. We have rented out Who's On First, the club next to Fenway Park most famous for its unmatched dancefloor scene. With a capacity of 600, among the larger of the Boston clubs, we felt that it would be a good location for the most memorable back to school ridiculous-fest evaaaaa.
This event will definetly sell out. For that reason, we will be releasing tickets in limited spurts immediately when kids start moving back. Details on where and how to get tickets will be posted on this website (bcgongshow.com), which is also home to the acclaimed Gongshow@BC blog for all of you froshy vixens and eager young bucks. It will be 18+ to party, 21+ to drink. This is the first party of its kind since we have been at BC and we think it will be a highlight of the fall. This will be a can't miss party. We can already see the droves of new freshmen getting rowdy on the green line en route to Who's.
There will be a Facebook group and a Facebook event soon. In the meantime, spread the word, stay-tuned to bcgongshow.com, and get ready to get silly.

BACK TO SCHOOL GONGSHOW

The boys from Gongshow@BC are planning a 18+ bash for the first week of school. We have rented out a large club and details will be released soon. This will be like a Has Beens Party times 1000. Start telling your friends. This will be the unofficial main event of Freshman Welcome Week.

It's been a great summer for the authors. We defined "gongshow" for the quaint island of Nantucket over the 4th of July and right now Pearcey is at the TB Lightning rookie camp just being his regular old brick wall self. We hope everyone is enjoying their time off but gearing up for another great year at the Heights. See you soon. Stay tuned for details of the Back to School Gongshow.

THE GREATEST COMEBACK EVER

Lance Armstrong came back. Mario Lemieux came back. The Red Sox came back. And now, because of constant pestering from adoring fans, we are all going to be able to tell our grandchildren about the day that the Gongshow@BC came back.
We have lots to catch up on. Of course, the Has Beens went on to win the intramural championship for the second straight season. That makes the Has Beens 2 for 2. The squad thanks you for your support.

In other hockey news, the fledgling B.C. Club Hockey program enjoyed its first season of inter-collegiate play. Battling opponents like B.U. and Northeastern, the Eagles are still undefeated in club hockey play and are looking forward to a full schedule next year against top-notch club programs.
And now for the biggest hockey story of the year at the Heights (and no, we aren't talking about the bench-clearing brawl which took place at the Has Beens v. District 5 gongshow of a game, which the HB's won en route to their 2nd IM mug)-- the Boston College Eagles forged their way through the NCAA Regionals and into Frozen Four play. This is the sort of stuff which really gets Gongshow@BC fans going. The boys fought valiantly and made it to the National Championship game v. Wisconsin. Congrats to the boys and coaching staff for being BC's Team of the Year.

Gongshow@BC Bits:
There's tons of things we would like to mention here, but we'll discuss what immediately comes to mind...

The Great Soy Sauce Heist, Foiled!!- On Friday night,an unidentified white male was seen being escorted out of Lower Dining Hall (in handcuffs) around 2:30 AM. Prior to his capture, lots of commotion was seen inside the dimly-lit dining hall as cooks and dining staff pointed BCPD to the suspect. He was apprehended and loaded gently into a squad car. The evidence (which was carried by a BCPD officer and loaded into another squad car)--- two large plastic containers, one of Soy Sauce and the other of an unidentified light-colored condiment. Updates to follow.

MODS SWEATSUITS-
Everyone has seen these two-piece monstrosities. MODS sweatsuits, complete with embroidered Mod numbers. And nobody thought you could get more "college" than the BC Beirut Team t-shirts.
Speaking of the Mods, we're sure everyone has read about BC'S Campus Master Plan. Within ten years, the Mods will be no longer. For BC alumni, returning to a Mod-less lower campus will be like hurricane victims returning to their old neighborhoods to find nothing but stray dogs and scrap wood. Like Fenway Park, the Mods are historic. Whatever building is constructed on the Mod land will be forever haunted by drunk ghosts in black Mods sweatsuits.

Applebees Wednesday Night Karaoke- We know the school year is pretty much over, but we had to mention this. The past few Wednesday nights have been crazy at The 'Bees. This revival can be attributed 100% to the arrival of karaoke. This writer felt like Ferris Bueller while doing a T-stopping rendition of "Twist and Shout" with the crowd getting into it while sipping daintily on $2 liquid colleges.

Condoleeza Rice- Commencement Speaker
This controversial decision has been the topic of campus-wide debate for a week now. The administration has reportedly issued a proposal to replace Condi with the more politically neutral, and more unpredictable, Chief Morningstar. The Chief had no comment on the matter, but then again, he was unconcious in the ATM booth.

Marathon Monday-
What a gongshow! Perhaps the biggest day of the year on campus, and the Gongshow@BC didn't recap it. But honestly, Marathon Monday cannot be put into words, so we won't try. We'll just say shame on those of you who didn't make it back for the festivities, you will regret that for the rest of your life.


Final Exams- Good luck to all of our readers with their finals. You can find us in Bapst or in the private study rooms at O'Neill.

We didn't try to be funny here, we just had to get back in the game. Despite our inactivity since pre-Spring Break, the Gongshow@BC has still been getting hundreds of hits every day, so we thought we should throw something up here to quiet down the complaints for a while. God Bless. Mike & Joe
