As the school year draws to a close, many students are bogged down with heavy schoolwork and the looming thoughts of exams. Fortunately, Appalachian Popular Programming Society will put on one more big show at Legends to close the year out and give students a chance to let loose and have some fun.

Los Angeles-based electronic musician Robert DeLong will play at the on-campus venue on Tuesday, April 28. Doors will open at 9 p.m. and the show will start at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for ASU students with valid student ID and $18 for guests.

With a festival-heavy summer tour ahead of him, the Legends show is one of the few upcoming dates that DeLong will play at an intimate, indoor venue. With music that draws influences from dance music as well as indie rock, and instruments that include everything from keyboards and drums to laptops and gaming controllers, this show promises a unique take on some of the most popular music genres at the moment.

“It’s kind of like electronic music but it has more roots in jazz. He’s a professionally trained percussionist,” said Maggie Sherwood, stage show chairperson of APPS.

Members of APPS were especially excited to bring DeLong to campus, as he was one of the top ten artists they hoped to bring at the beginning of the school year.

Tickets for the show are still available and can be purchased at http://legends.appstate.edu/ and at the information desk in Plemmons Student Union.
