Five Times August slates concert at Bay

ESCANABA - Five Times August is bringing his musical talents to Bay College's Escanaba Campus on Wednesday. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Besse Center Theatre.

The group has sold over 100,000 digital downloads without a record label, getting 40 song placements from one album on popular television programs-including MTV's The Hills and the CW Network's "One Tree Hill" - and becoming the first unsigned act sold in Wal-Mart stores nationwide.

His new album, "Brighter Side," features relatable catchy pop tunes without the overly produced sound that invades today's Top 40 market..

Tickets are $1 for current Bay College students, faculty, and staff; $5 for the General Public. Both shows are sponsored by the Bay College Student Government/Activities Board.
