04/08/2013 01:13 PM

BATON ROUGE – On Saturday, April 13, LSU will host Lupe Fiasco, Grace Potter, and YelaWolf at Groovin’ on the Grounds, a free concert held annually on the LSU Parade Grounds. Because of their win at the LSU Battle of the Bands competition held in October 2012, local band Levee Daze will open the concert. This event is sponsored by LSU Student Government, or SG, and is coordinated by Students on Target, an SG programming committee charged with promoting healthy lifestyles and alcohol-free fun.

 

The concert will begin at 6 p.m., preceded by a wellness festival beginning at 3 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public. In the case of rain, the concert will be held in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

 

 

Concert performers may be available prior to the concert to members of the media. Please submit an interview proposal on company letterhead indicating the members of your agency who wish to be present and the topical areas you intend to cover to Aaron Looney in the LSU Office of Communications & University Relations at alooney@lsu.edu. Media outlets will be notified after LSU receives a decision about each interview proposal. Interview requests must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9.

 

 

Media outlets who wish to attend Groovin’ on the Grounds should obtain media credentials by contacting Looney at 225-578-3871 or alooney@lsu.edu by noon on Thursday, April 11. Credentials will be available for pickup at the Office of Communications & University Relations building, located at 3960 West Lakeshore Drive, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.

 

Students On Target is an LSU Student Government programming committee that is charged with the mission of promoting healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating right, exercising regularly and acting responsibly. This innovative organization uses the medium of music and art to spread this message. Students will be provided with multiple activities while being exposed to new and exciting music and artists. As reflected by the goals of both organizations, Groovin’ on the Grounds is an alcohol-free event. More information is available by contacting Students on Target at 225-578-8728 or sot@lsu.edu, or by visiting the LSU Students On Target Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/lsu.sot.
