Teens Rock at Des Plaines Library!
Know how libraries are usually quiet, and if there's any talking its in hushed tones? That won't be the case this Wednesday at DPPL because The High Strung are coming!
The High Strung are three guys- Josh, Derek, and Chad- whose quirky, Beatlesesque, witty, catchy music have been grabbing listeners (and reviewers) attention for the past few years. They have been named by Rolling Stone magazine, the New York Times, and Village Voice as one of the best rock & roll bands in America; have been on MTV; have been featured articles in Entertainment Weekly, Magnet, and Spin magazines; and now they'll be playing here!
This Wednesday, in front of the library in Library Plaza, The High Strung will play a one hour set, starting at 7pm. After the set, the audience and band will create a song from scratch during the improv session.
But make sure to be here at 6:30-because that's when local teen band The Friendly Ghosts will be opening! Kasey, Vince, Jimmy and Alyssa are a rock/pop band with a folk/indie sound-be sure to check them out!
Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, this awesome combination makes the Des Plaines Library THE place to be this Wednesday night. Bring your friends, bring lawn chairs, and be ready to be LOUD and ROCK OUT!
*In bad weather arises, the concert will be in Friends Room B/C.
