Saturday, September 15 at 8 pm American singer, songwriter and rapper Dev
will be performing live at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Student Recreational Center for what is said to be an electric affair.
combines roots of electric and pop music which results in a high energy, and unique musical experience. Although Dev has been making music since 2009, her music career really took off in 2011 with the release of her album “In the Dark.” Her hit singles “Bass Down Low” and “In the Dark” put her in the spotlight in the last year. Although Dev has had great success in her career recently, UAF students have mixed feelings about her upcoming performance.
The Dev poster next to the KSUA soundbooth is scribbled all over with statements like “I cost you $30,000!!” and “aesthetic terrorist.”
When students around campus were asked for their opinions on the upcoming Dev
concert, their responses varied from extreme highs and lows; with many students unaware of who Dev even is.
However, not all students are upset about SAO’s pick of Dev for this year’s fall concert. UAF student Deshaun Baker was happy to hear that Dev will be performing. “I will definitely be there,” Baker said.
Form your own opinion of Dev by coming to the UAF SRC this Saturday for a show that will be full of energy and rhythm. Tickets will be $10 for students and $20 for general admission. They are currently being sold at the Wood Center and Chartreuse.
