Sun Seeker


Come to the M-Shop of the Iowa State Memorial Union on Saturday, Sept. 30, for a psych rock/indie folk performance by Sun Seeker. Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with Biddeford, their long-awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. Their performance starts at 8 p.m., with tickets at $10 for the public, $8 for those with an Iowa State ID.
