UGA's University Union announced today that the headliner for its annual Spring Concert will be none other than Kendrick Lamar, the in-demand L.A.-based rapper whose debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, wowed critics and fans alike in 2012, landing its creator a spot on many a year-end list and, more recently, on "Saturday Night Live."
Lamar is an inarguably good get for UGA, and for Athens' hip hop-starved scene in general. Tickets for the concert, which happens Thursday, Mar. 7, go on sale tomorrow (Thursday) morning at 9 a.m. at the cashier window in the Tate Student Center. They're $5 for students and $15 for townies. Judging by the number of people who already say they're "going" on the event's Facebook page, they may end up being hard to come by.
