The 25-year-old singer-songwriter, Tai Verdes, will headline University Union’s 2021 Bandersnatch concert joined by singer-songwriter Maude Latour and DJ BenSpence.

Bandersnatch is set to welcome students to Goldstein Auditorium on Friday, Oct. 22 with its doors opening at 8pm. The concert marks Bandersnatch’s return since it was last held in 2019.

Tai Verdes

From working a 9-to-5 job at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to being hailed by the New York Times for one of the “Best Songs of 2020,” Tai Verdes has been virtually unstoppable. The 25-year-old’s breakout single “Stuck In The Middle” hit #1 on Spotify’s U.S. viral chart and 22 international charts after publicity from a series of videos Verdes posted on TikTok. The single has amassed over 80 million streams since its release in May 2020, but the singer-songwriter has even greater plans. “This is not a one song thing, this is a 10-album thing,” Verdes says. His debut album “TV” is available across all streaming platforms on May 20.

Maude Latour

Maude Latour may have grown up between London, Hong Kong, and Sweden before settling down in New York City, but she has always had a permanent home in her music. Latour began releasing music in 2017 and has not stopped since. She says her indie-pop songs are like journal entries in that they’re “a declaration that I’m human, that I’m alive”. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter is a current philosophy student at Columbia University but still prides herself in her work and her fans by finding the time to respond to every DM and comment she’s ever received.

BenSpence

When he’s not studying, Syracuse University student BenSpence spends his time laying tracks as a DJ, music producer, and avid fan. Originally from Washington DC, BenSpence describes his music as “freedom” and says it gives him the opportunity to express himself. He has released several original tracks and has also performed at Ultra Music Festival, Moonrise Festival, and other various venues throughout the United States.

Tickets are currently on sale for $5 for SU and SUNY-ESF students and $10 for affiliated faculty and staff at the student boxoffice. The Dome Bag Policy will be implemented and masks are required for all to attend.
