WKNC presents a Concert on the Lawn, our part of our free outdoor concert series Fridays on the Lawn. We’re spicing it up for this new year of freshman by hosting in on Monday, August 19th from 5-7 PM to welcome them on their first day on-campus. This event is free and open to the public, so we hope to see you there!
This time around, we have two great indie rock acts, Museum Mouth from Southport and Heyrocco from Charleston. Museum Mouth have been featured numerous times on mtvU, which also featured WKNC last year for college radio, and are known for their lively performances and their indie rock meets pop-punk sound. From loud and bouncy to beat up and lonely, Museum Mouth carry through their sets with a sense of earnest and memorable, catchy guitar riffs. Their vocals are reminiscent of Beat Happening- if you can imagine it put to high powered pop-punk.
Watch “Sexy But Not Happy” by Museum Mouth.
Heyrocco have probably played in North Carolina more than they’ve played in their homestate, so we’ve claimed them as our own. They are the first non-local band to join us in the Concert/Fridays on the Lawn series, and we’re glad to have them! The group has a knack for writing catchy, indie pop songs and adding personality layered behind them. They’re dynamic, and they bring with them a great live performance: from listening to them, you’d think they’d been doing this for years, but they’re just a few years out of high school! Heyrocco composes smiling music- the kind you have to dance to.
Listen to "Elsewhere“ by Heyrocco.
"The Lawn” is at West Campus Amphitheater behind the Bragaw building on Dan Allen Drive. For your GPS needs, its street address is 2520 Sullivan Drive, 27650. Parking is available in Dan Allen Deck and all spots marked “C”.
