Do it tonight: Owl Creeks Spring Concert

I've got an endless supply of hungover owls for these posts.

As they say, it’s that time of year again.

That’s right, the Owl Creeks spring concert is tonight, 8:00 p.m. in Rosse Hall.

The Owl Creeks always put on a great show that leaves audience members with springs in their steps and songs in their hearts. You probably shouldn’t miss it.
