Nothing beats listening to great live music, outside on a beautiful summer evening.

Dates and entertainment schedule are as follows:’ Tonight, August 2nd at 6 p.m. – Blind Corn Liquor Pickers (headliner) and Peat Moss Tuesday, August 9th at 6 p.m. – William Elliott Whitmore (headliner) and The Mystical Overtones Tuesday, August 30th at 6 p.m. – Hoots & Hellmouth (headliner) and Formerly Fiona Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome along with friends! All the fun takes place in NDMOA’s sculpture garden on UND campus (261 Centennial Drive). Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door (free for children 12 and younger).  Beer and food is available for purchase. Have you been to these concerts before? What are your fave bands?
