WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - The Lycoming College Campus Activities Board (CAB) has announced Red Bull Recording artist AWOLNATION will headline the spring concert scheduled for Friday, April 11, at 8 p.m. in the Recreation Center. The opening act will be Manicanparty.

AWOLNATION is an American electronic rock band formed and fronted by Aaron Bruno. The group’s debut release, “Megalithic Symphony,” may be best known for the hit “Sail,” which has been on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 78 weeks and has gone platinum in the United States and double platinum in Canada. “Sail” was featured on CBS’s “The Good Wife,” as well as in several commercials.

“We are very excited to have AWOLNATION perform on our campus,” said Lawrence Mannolini, director of student programs and leadership development. “CAB is sure that they will draw an energetic and enthusiastic crowd and we are hoping that people will come out to see what will be a great live performance by one of today’s best bands.”

As always, CAB will offer one free ticket to each Lycoming student who has paid the student activity fee, a practice that remains unique among colleges and universities that host major campus concerts. This concert is funded by the Student Senate of Lycoming College.

Tickets are $25 and may be purchased on campus at the Office of Student Programs, Wertz Student Center; by phone on the college’s ticket hotline at 570-321-4056; at www.lycoming.edu/concert; or by visiting the Dairy Queen in South Williamsport.

Previous concerts at the college have included Mac Miller, Maroon 5, Ke$ha, Ben Harper and Relentless7, and Good Charlotte.
