“Cocktail Hour” with Waiting In Line

Come take a break from studying or procrastinating and join Waiting In Line for their final concert. BYO cocktails to sip on while they serenade you with songs that will make you squeal.

But what makes this show so special is that it is their last performance of the year, and the last show with Joe Newman ’09 and Carmen Melillo ’09, two wonderful (and sexy) men. So, fix yourselves some cocktails, enjoy them while comfortably sitting in the seats, of PAC, and watch their spectacular extravaganza unfold.

Date: Wednesday, May 13
Time: 8:00 PM
Place: PAC 001

Here is last year’s trailer to get you pumped for the madness:
