Chicago-based indie rock band Scattered Trees will perform a free concert at 8 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, Aug. 31, in the Wyoming Union Ballroom.
Scattered Trees formed in the suburbs of Chicago and became popular in the local club circuit before separating for various jobs and colleges. They came back together a short time later to collectively mourn the passing of lead singer Nate Eiesland’s father and have been together ever since. In their grief, Scattered Trees wrote prolifically on love and loss, producing their first album, Sympathy. It is available for download or physical purchase here.
Scattered Trees’ visit is one in a series of free concerts offered at the university from early summer to mid-fall.
