UPAC Decision: Bands Need Food Too!
As you may have read, the University Park Allocation Committee recently made a decision on SPA’s request to use some of its standing allocation on food. I know that when I heard about the UPAC’s decision, I was a little bit confused. Does this mean I get free pizza at the Minus The Bear concert? Will Ben Stein be giving out hotdogs at SPA’s expense?
Thanks to some info from some helpful folks over at the UPAC, the matter was cleared up for us.
According to their emails, it appears that the decision was based on a recognition of SPA’s need to offer hospitality in order to keep bringing in exciting acts. Therefore, the UPAC decided to meet SPA’s need in this regard, as well as offering food funding for other standing and regular allocations as well. So, no free pizza at LateNight. But, hopefully this means that the SPA will be able to keep bringing in ballin’ acts. You can count on me being at Minus The Bear, free pizza or not.
