Hey Marseilles will rock the Civics Week Block Party

As you (should) know, this week was College Civics Week! Our campus was buzzing with tons of different events and activities for students to participate in, all with the goal of informing students about their First Amendment rights.

Well today is the last day of this informative experience, and it will wrap up with the Block Party! This event will run from 5-8 p.m. and will be held in the SURC Ballroom.

The Block Party will feature live music from Seattle-based indie-pop band Hey Marseilles. Attendees can also mingle with representatives from civic engagement organizations at this free event, and everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the festival atmosphere.

Of all the musicians who have performed at Central, perhaps none captures the spirit of the Northwest as vividly as Hey Marseilles. They have opened for The Lumineers, performed at the Bumbershoot Music Lounge and the Broad Street Stage and been featured multiple times on NPR. This summer they are conducting a tour that will reach locations from The Newport Folk Festival to Lollapalooza.

Don’t miss this great, and free, event!
