You may have read one of the many AllStus sent about pie in the last week. Well, the night is here my friends. To lift you out of those mid-winter doldrums, the Peer Counselors are hosting a Winter Blues Concert tonight from 9PM to midnight in Peirce Pub. There will be performances by Howard Sacks, David Suggs, The Blue Crab Vestibule, A Sassy Nation, and others.

What: Winter Blues Concert with pie and performances by people you may know.

Where: Peirce Pub.

When: 9PM – midnight.
