Let's meet in Kresge Court at 6pm to enjoy each other's company, have a drink and maybe a snack.

Then, we'll move to Rivera Court to see the Jim Campilongo Trio perform at 7pm.

A little about the performer...New York has no shortage of guitar heroes but few cover as many bases as Jim Campilongo, with a range that extends from seductive country-swing to atmospheric jazz and well beyond. Campilongo brings his ’59 Telecaster and his critically acclaimed trio - Josh Dion (drums and vocals) and Tony Scherr (bass) - who cover a musical palette that very few can. Campilongo's credits include Norah Jones, Cake, and JJ Cale as well as appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Later . . . with Jools Holland (BBC), and Abbey Road Sessions (BBC).
