- Tonight in Grand Forks: Heatbox, a performer out of Minneapolis, will be at Crosstown Lounge at 10 p.m. tonight as part of the tour to release his new album, “System.” Admission: $5; must be 21 or older.
The weekend arrives with Rhombus Guys as sponsors for Saturday’s Springfest in University Park. It is interesting to note the Springfest will be followed by a Study-a-Thon on Sunday in the Memorial Union. Last week, there was a Comedyfest following the Big Event.
The Grand Forks City Council approved a request Monday that sets the stage for this year’s Springfest. Grand Forks restaurant Rhombus Guys, this year’s sponsor of Springfest, was granted a noise variance and special license to sell alcoholic beverages at University Park from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the May 9 event.
Four regional bands will play May 9 celebration. Springfest may have a new sponsor this year, but organizers still are planning an afternoon of great live music at the party in the park held each year before UND finals week.
The winning bid to sponsor Springfest was all about the money. Rhombus Guys owners promised to cut the Grand Forks Park District’s expenses surrounding the pre-finals party at University Park. In sharp contrast, Gilly’s Bar asked for financial help.
