A free Walk the Moon concert is set to add to the giveaways at Buck-i-Frenzy.
The Ohio Union Activities Board announced Monday evening via Twitter the indie-rock band will be playing a free acoustic performance at the annual Welcome Week event Tuesday at 3 p.m.
The quartet hails from Cincinnati and includes Nicholas Petricca on lead vocals, keyboard and synthesizer, Kevin Ray on vocals and bass, Eli Maiman on vocals and guitar and Sean Waugaman on drums and vocals. Lead single “Anna Sun,” off the band’s 2010 album “I Want! I Want!” was named by Esquire magazine as the song of the summer in 2011. Its self-titled album was released in 2012 and peaked at No. 8 for alternative albums on the Billboard charts.
First-year in exploration Olivia Fitzpatrick is a fan of the band and said she will attend Tuesday’s concert.
“I think they’re an awesome band, and it’s really awesome that it’s free, so I would definitely go,” Fitzpatrick said.
Jane Corwin, a second-year in biochemistry and French, will also see Walk The Moon unplugged.
“I would definitely go. I love the band,” Corwin said.
Buck-i-Frenzy features many giveaways and free food and hosts local and national companies that want to showcase their brand to Ohio State students. The festival is free for students and will be held Tuesday outside the RPAC from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
