Live in the Courtyard featuring Racoma


Union Program Council is excited to announce Seattle-based Indie-Alternative Rock band Racoma featuring opening artist Crystal Rose. The free concert will be live at the K-State Student Union at  8 pm, Friday, Jan. 20 in the Union Courtyard. Doors open at 7:30 pm.

Rocoma is the collaborative songwriting effort of Glenn Haider, Sean Collopy and Spencer Templeman. The band shared, “As a band, we've drawn so much connection and inspiration from the Seattle music community,” as stated in an online article from the Seattle Public Library.

When the band released “Fortify (An Ally Song)” the first month of proceeds was donated to a Washington non-profit, CHOOSE 180. The organization “transforms the lives of youth and young adults by partnering with institutional leaders, connecting them with community, empowering them with choice, and teaching them the skills necessary to avoid engagement with the criminal legal system,” the band stated.

Come celebrate the first week back in classes, listen to good music and get some cool merch!
