springfest-IV

I am getting beyond excited for this Friday.

Every year, Clemson’s own student-run radio station, WSBF, puts on a huge all-day long music and arts festival. This is the 4th year running and it’s going to be awesome. It’s down at Tigerpark, which is near Fike. Admission is free with a cash or canned good donation to Clemson Community Care, but bring money, because we’ve got some great vendors, and for all you of-age, Friar’s will be selling reduced price drinks ;)

If you’re interested in listening to any of the bands, I’ve made a list with links to where it’s easiest to hear some of their stuff!:
