Colin, who?

Indie rockers The Decemberists were added to the Spring Fling lineup tonight, but so was a lesser known name: Colin Munroe. And he was free!

From Eric Randall’s most recent story on the announcements:

Munroe, a relative unknown in the music industry, will open the April 28 concert. Silliman YSAC Representative Mathilde Williams ’11 said Wale offered to bring the singer-songwriter as an opener. Wale, who tours with a live band himself, has crossed genre lines to collaborate with Munroe on songs like “Will I Stay.”

Munroe was added to the lineup much later than the other four acts, as Leatherbury said that late in the booking process, Wale’s agent offered to bring Munroe along for no charge in an effort to promote the up-and-coming artist.

Sample some of Munroe’s music after the jump:

“Piano Lessons”

“I Want Those Flashing Lights” (Kanye West remix)
