Pauly D will play in Goldstein Auditorium on Thursday Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m. as part of Syracuse University's Winter Carnival. On Sunday night, UU officially announced the show via Twitter and Facebook. Alt hip-hop artist Rockie Fresh will also appear as a special guest. Tickets are $10 for students and will be available through the Schine Box Office Starting Monday Feb. 4.
Pauly D gained popularity after appearing on MTV's "Jersey Shore," and has since launched his disc jockey career, as well as a "Jersey Shore" spin-off "The Pauly D Project." He released the first single of his debut album, "Back to Love (feat. Jay Sean)" on Jan. 15.
Jukebox the Ghost will play on Tuesday March 19 in the Schine Underground. The band has toured extensively, opening for bands like Barenaked Ladies and Jack's Mannequin, and released their third album, Safe Travels, in June.
The Upright Citizen's Brigade improv and sketch comedy troupe will also perform in the Schine Underground on Wednesday Feb. 27. UCB, which began as part of Chicago's ImprovOlympic in 1990, has had a number of famous members including "Parks and Rec's" Amy Poehler, SNL alum Horatio Sanz and "Scrubs'" Neil Flynn.
Tickets are expected to be available through the Schine Box Office for the Upright Citizen's Brigade and Jukebox the Ghost shows once they are officially announced.
This post was updated on Sunday Feb. 3 to reflect the official announcement of the Pauly D show by UU.
