Dillo Day 2010


As the end of the school year comes to a close the NU student body is gettin' ready to "party like a state school".

Its that time of year again, Dillo Day:

"Armadillo Day began in 1972 when Northwestern students from Texas held a small celebration in honor of the armadillo. More than 25 years later, "Dillo Day" is the culmination of Mayfest with an all-day Saturday event on the lakefront featuring national and locally known bands, games and vendors. Dillo Day is one of the strongest traditions of the Northwestern community."

During my years at NU we've had headliners such as N.E.R.D., The Decemberists, The Roots and Lupe Fiasco, among others.

This years lineup:

I'm pretty excited about it this year cause it will be my last and I like the headliners!  I'm really excited about Regina Spektor especially.  I've been a fan of hers for a while and never had the opportunity to see her live.

Guster coming to NU is pretty exciting as well, I've heard their stuff over time and I like it, so it should be fun

Lastly Dillo Day will be taking us on a trip down memory lane with our final Headliner Nelly...
Now, Nelly hasn't exactly been relevant since I was a freshman... in high school (that was a really long time ago) but most people on campus are really excited... I think it's that nostalgia that's going around these days, its everywhere... people are just yearning on simpler times.
Personally I was never into Nelly or many other forms of Rap and Hip-Hop but even I can't deny that it totally brings back some hilarious memories.
