After hours of studying, sometimes watching TV just isn’t enough. Luckily, Bloomington-Normal offers many different live entertainment alternatives.
Jenna Wilson, US Cellular Coliseum marketing executive, explained how they try to choose artists that appeal to the student population.
“We are really excited to receive this award for the second year in a row. We strive to always bring different genres of music to our building and be able to provide a great entertainment area for our college students. We are always looking forward to more great shows in the future,” Wilson said.
Rory O’Connor, co-owner of Castle Theatre, said since the venue opened a year and a half ago he has been working to establish it as staple of the community.
“We certainly do value students coming out to our venue. We appreciate the support of the student body and hope you guys keep coming out,” O’Connor said.
Finally, Laugh Comedy Club hosts comedians from all over the country and performance-based shows. Laugh also offers a full service bar for those of drinking age.
College Night at Laugh Comedy Club is on Thursday with $5 tickets for students plus various drink specials.
