Twenty years ago, an East Lansing band hit pay dirt. Verve Pipe’s album “Villains” went platinum after being ballyhooed by Rolling Stone magazine.

On Friday, June 10, Verve Pipe will perform “Villains” cover to cover at the first ever City Pulse River Rock Concert, at Adado Riverfront Park. The ‘90s cover band Triple Lindy will open the show.

Verve Pipe is the headliner for two special nights. Local bands will take the stage on Saturday, which will also include City Pulse’s Top of the Town Party, featuring food from a dozen local restaurants. Keep an eye on City Pulse for announcements.
