Dashboard Confessional To Play Georgia Southern University
Alternative acoustic act Dashboard Confessional will perform at Georgia Southern University on Friday, May 1, 2009 at the campus Recreation Activities Center band shell. The 8:00 p.m. show is free and open to the public.
‘We wanted to give our students and the community a fun way to end the school year and start their summer,” said Student Activities Coordinator Sriravong Sriratanakoul. ‘This free show is a terrific way for students to have a great time with friends as they wrap up classes and exams. For our graduating seniors, this will be one more great memory of Georgia Southern they can take with them.”
Dashboard Confessional’s album A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar and the follow up, Dusk and Summer, both climbed to number two on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Their 2002 release MTV Unplugged 2.0 was certified platinum. The band is a favorite among college students and is currently on a tour that includes stops at a number of universities.
Moonhammer will open for Dashboard Confessional. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
