WUD Music Presents:
MUSIC FOR MENTAL HEALTH 2016
Featuring Comedian Aparna Nancherla, Aarushi Agni, and Jason Siegel
This is a special event put together by WUD Music to raise awareness of mental illness and addiction on campus and showcase the potential of live music and entertainment to offer community and support for students, musicians, and fans alike. Creating safe spaces to talk about these issues is very important to this comedian, and she'll be joined at The Play Circle by representatives from on-campus student organizations to spread awareness of the mental health resources available here on campus.
Following this show, head over to The Sett for the second part of Mental Health Awareness night, featuring Sorority Noise, Free Throw and Rat Boys starting at 9pm.
This is a FREE show.
