UCF has proven itself to be an environmentally friendly campus while still knowing how to party. There were over 20 bands rocking it out for the Battle of the bands with Less than Jake headlining at the end of the show.

Although they had a great time performing at UCF, Less than Jake told KnightNews.com it was “kind of a bummer” that their performance had to be cut short because things went a little over and there are “strict time curfews” placed on Memory Mall. The band said it would love to come back for another UCF concert, however.


Along with the performances there was tons of entertainment and exhibitions. The Kappa Sigma fraternity created some electricity for charity on the Bicycle Turbines Electric Generators. There were also tons of art displays and organizations to check out.

While I was there I got to talk to some of the bands that were playing on stage. Both JamesPete and The Reprieve rocked out the stage and brought some soulful fun rhythms to UCF.

Some people to thank for this kick butt even are Campus Activity Board, SGA, Origin Influence LLC, I.D.E.A.S. and Animal Safe House. A show filled with skate ramps, art, music and all for an awesome cause made for an exciting day at the University of Central Florida!


  1. I heard that Kappa Sigma did nothing to help with the Bike Turbines. They shouldn’t get any credit for this event! Especially if they are claiming it as their philanthropy!

  2. The real reason Less Than Jake was cut short wasn’t because of UCF’s noise restrictions. It was because Melanie Bullock in the CAB wouldn’t stand up to the Late Knights. It was Sack Races and stupid caricatures that were worth cutting a 15K band short. Apparently something that occurs every month, is totally lame, and on another part of the campus was more important then a first time event.

    The Campus Activity Board really needs to get their act together. This is an inefficient group of amateurs that run this. Blame Melanie Bullock! She stood there the whole time rolling her eyes! She couldn’t wait to shut down the show! Someone who knows what they’re doing should run that office.

  3. True… this event was called Green Waves Music Festival. It happened to include a battle of the bands. It should also be noted that I.D.E.A.S. built the bike generators with support from the Kappa Sigma Fraternity to make it into a philanthropy…. but nice job getting an interview with Less Than Jake!

  4. Maybe Cab and sga should get theire acts together and now pay the most money for less than Jake and not even let them play the whole time they paid for

  5. haha the rapper was awesome i saw him with jamespete!

    ps it clearly says 20 bands rocking out with Less than Jake headlining at the end… so maaaaybe you should read the article again… no need to be rude

  6. OMG the rapper was awesome i saw him perform with JamesPete! ahaha

    ps- I just read the article and it clearly says “Less than Jake headlining at the end of the show.” So maybe you should read again mr. “Get you facts straight”…rude

  7. Less Than Jake was the headliner for the Green Waves Music and Arts Festival, not the battle of the bands. Though there was a battle of the bands at some point within the festival, it was not the main purpose of the festival.

    Knghtnews cant even get their facts straight on something this simple.
