SPARTAN DISCHORDS FALL 2014 AUDITIONS

LADIES AND GENTS:

We hope that summer has been treating everyone well: catching golden tans, traveling for vacation, taking pics of you flipping your hair in the water, the usual summer fun.

BUT we’re sure we all are sharing in the excitement of fall semester quickly arriving. With that, we have some spots to fill! Auditions will be held at 5:30 pm in the Music Practice Building on MSU’s campus. Prepare a VERSE and CHORUS of a song of your choosing, and be prepared to tell us your BEST JOKE.

We can’t wait to see you then,

Now! That’s What I Call Dischords – Big Show 2014

NowDischords

Most of the snow has melted or has become icy piles of dirt and slush, the remnants of a polar vortex we won’t soon forget.

Alas, spring is upon us as the school year comes to a close. However, it just wouldn’t be a proper spring without the annual Spartan Dischords Big Show. With the group performing Big Show for the 21st year (finally legal…STR) we decided to relive the younger years and more innocent times for us and our fans.

This show will take a journey back to the times of puka shells and Abercrombie and Fitch. Back when jean cargo shorts really were cool and when facial hair was only a fantasy. 2014 brings you, “NOW That’s What I Call Dischords” an homage to the never ending series of CDs that were a staple in any Sony Walkman. Take the journey with us back in time and appreciate what made us the great (meh) people we are today.

On Friday, April 25 at the Pasant Theatre inside Wharton Center we will deliver you a joyous medley celebration of boy bands, pop divas, 2K classics and maybe even a few you forgot about along with a healthy dose of new music and Dischord humor and charm.

Tickets are available at the Wharton Center box office.
$5 for students and $7 for the public.
Tickets also available online at the Wharton Center website, but with an additional online fee making the tickets $10.50 for students and $12.50 for adults.
(We apologize for the inconvenience of additional fees. These are required by Wharton Center for each event)

We hope you can join us for the show and as an incentive for putting up with us, your ticket is also an all-access pass to our after party at: 825 W. Grand River.

You won’t want to miss this heavy dose of nostalgia from the times when Saturday morning cartoons and Gap hoodies were the only way to be cool. Take it back to ’95 and enjoy the history with us.

Peace and blessings,

The Spartan Dischords

The Spartan Dischords Present: “…Define Naughty”

Define Naughty

You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why, because the Spartan Dischords won’t allow this type of behavior during the holiday season. We will admit it, we’ve been bad this year. We are on the Naughty List poised to receive enough coal to heat a small village. BUT, we decided we don’t quite know what it means to be “naughty” and the dictionary isn’t helping.

In an effort to save our Chirstmas, we are having a show and asking Santa to…”define ‘naughty’” and reconsider us for the Nice List.

It just wouldn’t be the holiday season without our annual Christmas show, so we are bringing it to you once again. We have prepared the candy canes, frankincense, and mistletoe and have compiled a titillating lineup of holiday classics with a touch of modern pizzazz. We wouldn’t miss it if we were you.

The concert will be at the Pasant Theatre inside Wharton Center on Saturday, December 7 at 7:30pm EST.

Tickets will be $5 for students and $7 for adults. To purchase tickets to this fantastic celebration of holiday spirit, you can check out this link:
http://www.whartoncenter.com/events/detail/the-spartan-dischords-presentsdefine-naughty
(We apologize for the fees assessed by the Wharton Center website. These were unexpected and out of our control)

In our journey back to the Nice List, we decided to also take toy donations for Toys for Tots, a program that distributes toys to under-privileged children who might otherwise not receive gifts. If you choose, please bring a toy and place it in the donation box at the show (we promise they aren’t for us!)

And of course, what kind of hosts would we be if we didn’t invite you to jingle and mingle and enjoy some egg nog and holiday cheer with us after the show? That is correct, after. party. The entrance fee is simply your ticket or proof that you’re an elf.
(825 W. Grand River)

Also, because we just love the season of giving, we have given your ears a Christmas EP titled “The Last Noel” available on iTunes. It has some holiday classics from the past that will be sure to get you in the Christmas spirit and straight onto the Nice List.

So warm your hearts, your toes, and your fingers, and come enjoy a glorious celebration of “naughty” behavior at our show.

Seasons greetings and happy holidays with love,

- Your Spartan Dischords

“Dischords Bought a ZOO” Friday, April 26th, Hannah Community Center, 7:30pm

BigShowBanner2 (1)

It’s that time of year again. As any Dischord fan can tell you, come the end of Spring semester, we can only think about one thing: Big Show. Dating way back to April of 1993, we are beyond excited to be celebrating 20 years of this ridiculous tradition.

This season, Dischords have reached a breaking point and we are unleashing our inner-beasts. Some of the guys are definitely more domesticated than others; so be forewarned. Come expecting the unexpected as we present to you this year’s Big Show: “Dischords Bought a Zoo.”

On Friday, April 26th at Hannah Community Center, we will be bringing you a diverse mix of classic hits and current jams. From Hunter Hayes to Imagine Dragons, and of course a medley of animalistic anthems. Dischords are preparing to satisfy everyone’s appetite.

For tickets, just click the page on the right side of this page that says “TICKETS: Dischords Bought a ZOO.”
From there you can choose either “Students” or “Public” tickets. Click the Paypal button and select the quantity you would like to purchase. That’s it! So simple, your dog could do it. But really, if that happens, film it.

Only $5 for students and $7 for public. (Plus a small online fee)
**We will have your tickets waiting for you at the door!**

If the show isn’t wild enough, remember your ticket gets you into our after party FOR FREE. Location TBD.

Additional disclaimers: Petting is not advisable (due to a poor track record of unpredictable biting). Also, you are welcome to feed the Dischords, but we must abide by our strict diet of Pokee Stix and leftover Easter candy (that’s for the elf). And no, we will not sit on command.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Just when you thought you knew every trick in the Dischord book, your favorite all-male a Cappella group has done it again. This elusive group of dudes has somehow managed to concoct a solution that will have you feeling all kinds of warm and fuzzy.

Exclusive samples of our sweetness will be available one night, and one night only. On Friday, February 15th, you’ll want to secure a seat to see The Spartan Dischords present: Fourteen Shades of Dischords.

This Valentine’s Day, we have seasoned our love potion with some throwback classics from The Backstreet Boys and Sugar Ray, as well as hot hits from The Script and Taylor Swift.

To all those hard-core Dischord fans, don’t fret, you can expect your hand-written Valentine, an unforgettable show and a FREE after party with your ticket.

We should mention that the lovely Harmonettes from the University of Michigan have graciously offered to open for us. Despite their wolverine affiliation, we are really stoked to share the evening with some talented ladies.

It’s going to be an evening that promises to tug at your heart strings and wrap you up in a blanket of affection.

Hope to see you there.

With love, from Cupid’s closest ally,

Spartan Dischords’ Spring Auditions, Jan. 10th, 2013, 5:30PM, Music Practice Bldg.

Good News! If you’re reading this, the world hasn’t ended yet.

Even better news! There’s this group of Spartan dudes who sing like angels and rock like the Flintstone’s. And they are looking for new members.

Do you like to sing? Do you enjoy making people laugh? Do you love music and are looking for ways to get involved on campus?

Then, you should probably come audition!

ALL IT TAKES is a VERSE and a CHORUS from the song of your choice. As well as the most outrageous JOKE you can prepare.

This Spring, we are looking for ALL VOICE PARTS. In particular, Tenor and Baritone, but we always welcome any dude to audition.

It is not required for your audition, but please let us know if you are gifted with any Vocal Percussion abilities (Beatboxing).

If you make it, you will be in a group with a bunch of guys who have been singing to Spartan ladies and selling out four concerts a year for the last 30 years. You’ll gain experience in the fine art of blending Humor with Harmony. Plus, every semester you will get the opportunity to travel across the Mid-West, sing all over campus and perform tons of hired gigs. But most of all, you will make the closest, life-long friends you may ever meet at MSU.

Check out more of what we do here:

Look like fun? Well, it is. Head on over to the Music Practice Building, starting around 5:30 PM, and look for the sign-in sheet. We will probably be there pretty late, so if you can’t make it right at 5:30, don’t worry. Come as soon as you can.

Remember, it’s just a VERSE and a CHORUS from any song you want, and the worst JOKE you can muster. Pretty simple, right?

If you are interested and have any questions, send us a message ASAP so we have ample time to respond.

We are pumped to see you all there, and make 2013 the best year yet.

Real talk.
