The bands Walk the Moon and Boyce Avenue will help the Interfraternity Council/Panhellenic Dance Marathon find a cure this January.
THON announced the event, “Chords for a Cure” today, which will benefit THON and will occur almost a month prior to THON Weekend, on Jan. 19 in Eisenhower Auditorium.
Tickets for the event will be $35 and will go on sale Jan. 7 at the HUB-Robeson Center's information desk and Eisenhower Auditorium box office, as well as downtown ticketing locations.
THON Overall Public Relations Chairwoman Cat Powers said that 100 percent of the proceeds will go to THON.
The event was created to motivate volunteers during the final stretch before THON Weekend, Powers (senior-public relations) said.
Walk the Moon is an indie rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio and is best known for its song “Anna Sun,” as well as other youthful and infectious tunes like “Tightrope.”
Its “Chords for a Cure” counterpart, Boyce Avenue, gained notoriety through posting original songs and covers of popular classics on Youtube – most recently releasing the compilation album “New Acoustic Sessions, Vol. 4.”
