Oh No: CAB Booked Their Brother-In-Law’s Band For Modstock After Their Wife Said It Would Mean A Lot To Him
LOWER CAMPUS — In an announcement that left countless students disappointed, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) revealed Thursday that My Old School, a Steely Dan cover band headed by their brother-in-law Rick Enroll would be the headline act for the 2018 “Modstock” concert.
While CAB considered a few more well-known acts, the organization stated that they were convinced to book My Old School after their wife, Sheila Board (née Enroll) told them that playing Modstock would “mean so much to Rick.”
“He’s been going through a really rough time since [his ex-wife] Lisa left him,” Board said. “I know that his band is one of the few things he really loves, so I figured playing Modstock would just mean the world to him.”
CAB members stated that they were initially reticent to book Enroll and his band, noting that few, if any, students would pay to see a “second rate Steely Dan cover band” and that booking My Old School would certainly mean having to hang out with their brother-in-law for the rest of the day after the show.
“Don’t get us wrong, Rick is a great guy, and we have nothing against him,” said CAB president Cam Board. “He can just be a bit much, and we know that he’s going to talk our ear off the whole rest of the day, and he’s definitely going to try and make plans to hang out again afterwards.”
The organization said in an official statement, “Sheila really hounded us on this, and she pointed out rightly that Rick would gladly do the same for us were the situation reversed.”
At press time, the entire Campus Activity Board was stuck on the phone with Enroll, who after learning of the booking was explaining in detail how the show would be the perfect opportunity to try out his new amplifier.
