ASU will come together on March 27 for a day of food, concerts and fun at the fourth annual Springfest.

Springfest has lasted several days in past years but was shortened to one day in 2018 because of its proximity to Good Friday.

Sudents Who Serve will give students a chance to get involved in community service with the spring edition of Angelo Serves.

Volunteers will be able to help at local organizations like Concho Valley Paws, the Nature Center, Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue and more. 

Registration for all Angelo Serves events will be open from 12–12:30 p.m., and the first 100 individuals to check in will receive a free t-shirt. When students check in, they can choose an organization to volunteer with that best suits their strengths and interests.

“We would rather have students do community service that they would enjoy, rather than something they wouldn’t,” Community Service Manager Kevin Reid said.

Groups will volunteer from 1–3 p.m. Pre-registration for Angelo Serves is also open online.
For dinner, students can head to the Caf for the eighth annual crawfish boil hosted by Lambda Chi Alpha.

This year’s concert portion of Springfest will begin at 6 p.m. at the ASU pavilion with Brother Brother, a, Florida-based band. Their debut studio album, The New Kids, reflects brothers Bradley and Brett Anderson’s exploration into new grounds of music, and is playfully coined “indie rock with a banjo.”

“This year will have more of an alternative sound,” UCPC Concert Chairperson Justice Medina said. “It is different from what Angelo State is used to, but we are excited to bring a twist to this year’s Springfest.”

Following Brother Brother, singer and cancer survivor Krigarè will take the stage. In her new upcoming album release titled “KRIGARÈ”, Krigarè tells her compelling stories of surviving stage four thyroid cancer and stage one melanoma all by the age of 18. Her music is knowns for its electronic driven melodies, strong imagery, and intense storytelling lyrics.

The headliner of the night will be The Score. The two-man indie pop group signed with Republic Records in 2015 after their song “Oh my Love” reached number 43 on the UK Singles Chart and rocketed the score into public attention.

Springfest will end with the conclusion of the concert at 10:30 p.m.
