Got plans for this Saturday? Cancel them!! Admit to yourself that you need more hipness in your life. There now. Feels better just saying it out loud, doesn’t it? Good for you. The solution? That’s easy – come to the final Spring Jazz Concert, this Saturday evening at 6pm in The Quad. On the bill will be the MS BTB Jazz Band, the USBand (featuring vocals by one Mrs. Debra Otey), and fresh off their triumphant set at last week’s Charlotte Jazz Festival – The Jazz Combo A solid dose of swing will always cure what ails you, and we’ll be serving it up to all who are hip enough to make the scene.
