Friday and Saturday's Spring Weekend performances will be held in Meehan Auditorium due to forecasted rain, according to a message sent to students from the Brown Concert Agency Tuesday afternoon.

This marks the first time Spring Weekend will be held indoors since 2008, when M.I.A., Lupe Fiasco, Girl Talk, Vampire Weekend and other acts performed to a full house in Meehan.

The Roots performed Friday night in Meehan in 2007, but the Flaming Lips performed on the Main Green Saturday under a makeshift roof.

"Although Friday's weather looks good, the forecasts unfortunately still show heavy rain, winds and cold temperatures on Saturday, particularly during the nighttime concerts," the BCA wrote in its message.

Holding one of the concerts outdoors was "not feasible due to the money, time and manpower to take down everything and set it back up again or to build two stages simultaneously," according to the message.

Tuesday's announcement came a day after BCA announced on Twitter around 6 p.m. that the concerts would be indoors due to rain. The tweet was taken down shortly after it appeared and was only posted due to an "internal communication error," said BCA Booking Chair Abby Schreiber '11.

"We are confident in these artists. It's going to be — rain or shine — a great Spring Weekend," she said. "It's not the end of the world."
