After bringing in hit artists ranging from The Format to 3Oh!3 to Gym Class Heroes, Bearstock has become one of Quadworks’ most ambitious and well-recieved projects, leaving the organization wondering what they can possibly do to top last year’s event. Their answer? More concerts.
Quadworks spent several weeks teasing two ambigous artists for a fall concert, and now they’re ready to reveal who is going to rock Mercer on Friday, October 7. R&B singerJanelle Monae is performing with indie pop act Fun (stylized “fun.”) at the Grand Opera House downtown this fall.
Monae, who jumpstarted her career by appearing on Outkast’s 2007 album Idlewild, is known for her orchestral instrumentals and soulful vocals.
Fun, comprised of former members of The Format, Anathallo, and Steel Train, artfully blends genres into memorable, catchy anthems.
It all takes place October 7 at the Grand Opera House. Tickets are on sale at the Grand now. Don’t miss out or you’ll be sad.
