As the year draws to a close, students at IU South Bend and everywhere else are probably planning their summers. Maybe some of you will take the summer break and relax with it, while others might choose to work or attend summer classes. Unfortunately, I’ll be here all summer taking classes—but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. I plan on keeping busy with some local events. The beautiful thing about the Midwest is that there is a lot going on in the summer and there certainly is something for every taste. Here are some events to keep you busy, starting from now through the summer.
April 15—Flatfoot 56 (Chicago based Celtic punk) is performing at the Bender Ballroom in (across the street from Student Housing on Lincolnway E). All ages, tickets $7.
April 18—Comedian Daniel Tosh (Tosh.0) is coming through South Bend and will be performing at the Morris Performing Arts Center. All ages, tickets $40-60.
May 11—Trace Adkins will be appealing to South Bend’s more “country” side at the Morris. All ages, tickets $40-70.
June 9—If classic rock and summer nights is the perfect pairing for you, check out .38 Special in Michigan City at The Blue Chip Casino. Ages 21+, tickets $100.
June 23—The Annual Blues & Ribs Fest will be back this summer at the Coveleski Stadium for fun, food and music for all ages. Ticket prices TBA.
More events are being announced everyday on local websites. There are also some notable musicians coming to local fairs this summer, including Styx, who will be at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair on July 21. There are also several music festivals around the area—Summer Camp, Hoodilidoo, and Electric Forest just to name a few. So, if you’re relaxing, working or learning this summer be sure to soak up some music and culture. Have a good summer and good luck with finals IUSB!
