DJ Fat Man Scoop will also be closing out the night, DJ-ing until 4:00 a.m. Tickets are only $10 for students, which gets you free food and non-alcoholic drinks from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. as well as fun, free activities and entrance to the concert. The doors open at 5:00 p.m., with Nick Gunty playing at 5:30, Identity Crisis at 6:30, Mayer Hawthorne at 7:30 and Guster at 9:30.

Presented by the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival, this special in concert production is running only this weekend, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. Tickets are just $15 for students and $25 for the general public. They can be purchased online at the DPAC website or in person or by phone at the DPAC box office.
