CAB and SHAC host: Homecoming Concert

CAB and SHAC are excited to announce our very first Homecoming Concert lineup, Hippo Campus featuring The Middle Ground on Thursday, October 6th in the Union Ballroom.

Hippo Campus is an indie rock band from St. Paul, Minnesota. They have performed all over the country at famous venues on tour with large-scale artists. Their singles “Little Grace” and “Suicide Saturday” have gained them national attention, and they have performed at places like Lollapalooza and on Conan O’Brien! We could not be happier to have them here on campus at UWM!

Our opening band, The Middle Ground, emerged on the Milwaukee music scene in 2013 as The Joe Neary Band and quickly found a niche with their alternative pop sound. In fact, their lead singer is a UWM alum! Their varied influences of pop, blues, and alternative have likened them to Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, and Young the Giant. We are so excited for them to be at UWM!

Get your tickets starting Monday, September 26th, FREE to all UWM students! Tickets can be picked up at the Union Information Desk, and guest tickets can be purchased with a valid student ID. However, limited guest tickets are available!”
