On Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m., a small but mighty crowd waited to enter Schine Underground for the first Bandersnatch concert of the year. University Union kicked off this series with X Ambassadors and their opening act, Tribe Society.

It’s a little different in sound because we’re always exploring and stuff, so it kind of became its own thing with the five of us instead of the six people in Gentlemen Hall.
