Augustana College invites the community to Chill on the Hill Sept. 8 at the new Anderson Pavilion on campus.
The free event will feature food trucks and local bands at the Ruth and Lefty Anderson Pavilion, 3750 7th Ave., Rock Island. The pavilion is just south of the Brunner Theater Center, and the most convenient parking is in the Centennial Hall lot across 7th Avenue.
Visitors should bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Seating is first-come, first-served.
Beginning at 1:30 p.m., The White Tornado will take the stage. The White Tornado is the piano-playing, songwriting alter ego of the mild-mannered Dr. Bill Peterson.
At 3 p.m., the indie rock band Subatlantic will play. The band features Augustana’s Dr. Adam Kaul and fellow musicians Rebecca Rice, Sean Chapman and Phil Pracht.
At 4:30 p.m. Minus Six, a piano-driven group from Moline will take the stage, with Augie alumnus and employee Kevin Carton, along with Matt Siversten, Rob Baner and Kameron Rummans.
Finished this spring, the Anderson Pavilion provides an ideal space for intimate performances on one of America's most beautiful campuses. The pavilion is built into the hillside on the south side of the Brunner Theatre Center, and offers many ways to showcase work in theatre, music and other performance arts.
