The Council of Graduate Students presents
Twin Cities Students Welcome Back Concert
Featuring Haley Bonar with John Mark Nelson
Aug 29, 2014
Sponsored by The Marshall and 89.3 The Current
Doors Open: 7:00 pm
18+, General Admission
Haley Bonaris more than a hard working musician. She is an innovator, creative ass-kicker, and visionary dug into the trenches of living. She writes genuine, epochal, and poetic tales that feel like our heartbreak, failure, frustration, and joy. In a clear, insistent, and often haunting voice, she tells real stories back to us, as if they were our own. It just doesn’t get much better than that.
Only 20 years old, John Mark Nelson sings with a slow-smoked croon that belies his age, and he fills his lyrics with sharp, detailed observations of life and love in the Midwest. This folk-pop songwriter has racked up an impressive list of accolades, too.
Note: Official After Party will be at The Library in Dinkytown.
As a part of the celebration, The Current is providing a giveaway for two free Music-On-a-Stick concert tickets and the Minnesota State Fair.
