When: Sun., April 17, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $15-18

When Mike Posner first made his splash as the eager Duke student with impossible aspirations of making the next Thriller, he validated the stereotype of the self-entitled Duke schmuck. Contrary to his industry successes so far, he's little more than a B-class singer with an A-class education. To make matters worse, since the release of his debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, we've seen Lil Wayne on an ill-fated remix and rescue attempt of Posner's "Bow Chicka Wow Wow." The torture continued when another one of Posner's missteps meant a cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep"; he slaughtered the original, making Justin Bieber sound like a gifted soprano. The sum of Posner's musical contribution is nothing less than soggy cereal masquerading as oatmeal—stale college pop at its peak. —Eric Tullis
