Doja Cat with Boogie | 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13 at Risley Hall

This concert will certainly be one for the books. The show is hosted by MCFAB and will take place in the Risley Great Hall, also the go-to gluten-free dining hall on campus. Boogie will be opening for Doja Cat, who is currently signed to Shady Records and is best known for his collaboration  with Eminem, “Rainy Days.” Doja Cat is the headliner. Some of you may know her as the “Mooo!” girl. Since her viral meme song took YouTube by storm, Doja Cat has signed a record deal and begun to release non-troll music. However, expect her to still throw it back to the fan favorite farm animal track.
