As a rock ‘n’ roll fan and someone who used to regularly attend those live shows in East Lansing, I missed that scene and wanted to do something to recreate that vibe.
And so if you’re walking near campus on Friday night and hear a howling guitar solo echoing across Grand River Avenue, that’s not your iPod acting up. That’s the first-ever Back to School Show, hosted by City Pulse and the Broad Art Museum.
The free event will feature two emerging local indie acts with strong followings:
The People’s Temple and Wayne Szalinski. Although both bands have played sold-out shows on some of the area’s largest stages, it will be nothing compared to rocking out the front lawn of the new $40 million art museum on the campus of Michigan State University.
East Lansing hasn´t seen something like this in a long time. Welcome back.
