EarthTones at ASU
Local psychedelic rock powerhouse Nomadic will headline
EarthTones, a free festival taking place Friday, April 13, from 2 to 8 p.m. on Duck Pond Field on
the Appalachian State University campus.
Featuring live music from several area performers, information about green initiatives at ASU and opportunities to learn more about sustainable businesses in the area, EarthTones is held as part of Earth Month at ASU and is organized by members of the ASU Sustainable Energy Society and the student chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
“We invite students, campus members and the local community to spend a free day together on Duck Pond Field celebrating spring weather and Earth Month,” Willard Watson, co-coordinator of EarthTones, said. “Come learn how sustainability isn’t just about recycling, but about caring for each other and appreciating beauty.”
Performing in addition to Nomadic are local favorites The Inverted Sea, Supatight, Brian Swanson and The Blue Ribbon Boys.
A performance schedule is included below.
Student organizations and community organizations dedicated to sustainable causes will provide information at the event. These include the Sustainable Energy Society, ASU National Alliance on Mental Illness, The ASU Artistic Rebuttal Project, Cove Creek Preservation & Development and Peel literary arts magazine. Also, ASU’s DAISEE trailer will be on site demonstrating clean energy technologies, such as functioning solar photovoltaic panels, solar thermal panels and a wind generator, as well as other green building features.
