Harding bags another big name

Posted By on Wed, Aug 18, 2010 at 2:53 PM


There's a big September in store for Harding University. We announced yesterday that rustic, high-pop rock act Dr. Dog is in line to play a rare public show at the Searcy university. Now, it looks like Mr. A-Z, Jason Mraz, is in line to play two weeks later, on Saturday, September 25.

Elsewhere, Hendrix College is celebrating the start of another school year with Deerhunter while Lyon College* catches...Secondhand Serenade**. Yikes. Go Scots.

Even before R.W. Emerson drug his heels through his U.B.W. pre-reqs, student activity committees at private colleges have always made a point to snag big names for their colleges in late August, early September. Still, it's fun doing the ol' compare and contrast, innit?

*Full disclosure: my alma mater
**Full disclosure: chalk that up to my college pal, Tim.
