The line that snaked along the outside of Conte Forum this morning was, to say the least, impressive. Students began lining up at 11 o'clock the night before to ensure they got their ticket for this years highly anticipated Modstock, featuring Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Those that endured the frigid temperatures and tortuous concrete ground as their beds can relate to fellow students who were truly committed to getting their ticket and getting it first. With great pain comes great reward, but in between there was a lot of crazy. Here are some of Gavel Media's favorite overheard comments while waiting for Modstock tickets.
"I wish I had a sign that said 'welcome to the line.'"
"This is, like, not a working environment."
"There was a fire alarm in Edmonds. It's a sign for everyone to get in line for Macklemore."
"We should start a 'UGBC sucks' chant!"
"God is testing me."
"The tent people know."
"The a$$ is going to get wicked uncomfy pretty soon."
"Watch kids at the concert be like 'wait, Macklemore is white?'"
"What kind of society do we live in?"
"9:00 AMs aren't happening here at Boston College."
"False alarm, it was a synchronized stretch."
"I feel like I could run a marathon now."
