(March 23, 2010)--The UTSA Campus Activity Board will host the annual RowdyStock concert from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, March 27 at the Convocation Center east lawn on the Main Campus. Free and open to the public, there will be refreshments, food, raffles and the opportunity to turn in your U.S. Census form.
The all-day music festival is inspired by Woodstock, featuring multiple bands including the Nappy Roots, a multi-platinum selling hip-hop group. Nappy Roots are about to release their 11th studio album and have established themselves as international superstars. In their home state of Kentucky, Gov. Paul Patton even declared Sept. 16 as Nappy Roots Day.
Other musical performances for the festival will include:
All who attend are encouraged to bring their completed U.S. Census forms, which will be collected for mailing by representatives of UTSA's UPS Store. The event also will promote U-Count @ UTSA, a campaign to make sure every UTSA student is counted in U.S. Census 2010.
Census staff will be available to answer questions about the census form and provide information on U.S. Census employment opportunities. UTSA hopes to lead San Antonio in returned census forms for National Census Day April 1.
