Northrop Announces Free Summer Concerts
From the website:
The Summer Music Festival at Northrop (SMFN) is finally here! Previously called Summer at Northrop, SMFN is a free, outdoor summer concert series featuring well-known local musicians and DJs, alongside U of M student bands as a way to support our University talent. Northrop Concerts & Lectures staff worked with local musician Grant Cutler, as our guest artistic curator, and an energetic Student Advisory Committee (a team of volunteer, motivated, music and PR savvy U of M students) to curate the series. The line-up is an eclectic taste of everything from hip-hop, dance music, singer-songwriter, folk, Latin, and spoken word.
