I’ve heard of a few interesting concerts coming up in Grand Forks and Fargo that are worth mentioning.
- 32 Below, a band of country-rockers from Fargo, perform at the UND street dance this Sunday. It’s part of UND’s Welcome Weekend for new students. The street dance is free and will be held behind the Memorial Union on Second Avenue North from 9 p.m. to midnight. A free concert is always a good deal – but remember, you need a valid student or faculty/staff ID to get into the street dance.
- Post-Traumatic Funk Syndrome will play the final Concerts in the Garden series show at the North Dakota Museum of Art on Tuesday, August 24 at 7 p.m. This classic rock horn band from Fargo has played the museum’s concert series for the past four years. Tickets are $7 at the door – the music will happen in the sculpture garden of the Museum of Art, which is located on the UND campus.
- Jade Presents announced on Friday that they are selling combo tickets for two upcoming Fargo concerts at a discounted price. The “Rocktober Special” works like this: get tickets for two concerts for $35, a savings of $15 off buying $25 tickets individually for the two shows. This deal applies to the Coheed & Cambria show (8 p.m. Oct. 12 at The Venue at The Hub) and tickets for the Bullet For My Valentine concert (8 p.m. on Oct. 14 at The Venue at The Hub). If you’ve already bought a ticket for one show and want to take advantage of this deal, bring your ticket into Tickets 300 (300 Broadway, Fargo; open M-F from noon to 6 p.m.).
