Local Who Dats are working together to boycott the Super Bowl, with plans for a “Boycott Bowl.” And we don’t think we need to remind the world why, right? Right.
The Boycott Bowl, an event still in the works, is a protest concert scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 3, opposite of the Super Bowl. According to the event’s Facebook page, organizers want to throw the music festival to provide the Who Dat Nation the opportunity to celebrate the New Orleans Saints and the city’s culture.
Founders Brandon Rizzuto, Travis Laurendine and “Kango Slimm” Williams report that Who Dats have donated over $5,000 to cover the project’s expenses. The event’s website allows fans to purchase tickets for as little as $10 to reserve a seat. Fans who donate more will have the option of multiple tickets or a VIP package.
So, who’s all in?
While the location of the event has not been announced yet, organizers reveal details about an initial lineup.
So far, the Boycott Bowl lineup will feature:
- CHOPPA, leading a “Choppa Style” Dance Contest
- Shamarr Allen & The Underdogs, performing, known for the fan anthem “Hit the Sean Payton”
- Partners N Crime and The Big EZ Band
- The Vettes
- Ricky B
- Flow Tribe
- Khris Royal and Dark Matter
- Michot’s Melody Makers featuring members of The Lost Bayou Ramblers
- Dash Rip Rock
Organizers say they will donate concert proceeds to The NORD Foundation. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit boycottbowl.com.
