Summer Concert Series coming at Union
Four varied musical acts are set for Purdue Memorial Union's Summer Concert Series on Wednesdays this July. The series also features optional picnic-style food and drink.
Each week, the free concert will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the Union's front lawn. Food service will open at 5:30 p.m. Tables and chairs will be set up, but guests are welcome to bring chairs and/or blankets. The rain location will be inside the Union in the North Ballroom on the first three dates, the South Ballroom for the last.
The dates and performers are:
* July 7 -- Michael Kelsey, acoustic rock.
* July 14 -- Moonshine Mason and the Rot Gut Gang, country.
* July 21 -- Small Town Heroes, Christian/bluegrass.
* July 28 -- Crash Landing, blues.
The menu on all four Wednesdays will feature a choice of five favorites fresh from the grill -- marinated chicken breast, hamburger (with cheese), hot dog with bun, Polish with bun, or veggie patty -- for $3.75. Sides, at $1.75, will be macaroni and cheese, baked beans and cole slaw. Soft drinks in cans and water in bottles will be sold for $1.50. A combo of one grill item, one side and one soda will be $6.50. Pappy's ice cream will be sold separately.
The series is sponsored by the Union and Purdue Employees Federal Credit Union. More about the Union.
