PNW’s Roaring Loud cranks the volume
Purdue University Northwest (PNW) recently hosted a free outdoor concert for students featuring Cxpital and Beach Bunny. More than 700 people gathered to jam out to two bands’ alternative music performances in a marquee campus event to help close out the spring semester. It was the second annual Roaring Loud concert hosted at PNW, a free concert for current and newly admitted students.
Beach Bunny headlined the evening with pieces from the band’s second album “Emotional Creature” and selections from its various singles. The band was started in Chicago by frontwoman Lili Trifilio and is known for its songs “Prom Queen,”“Sports,”“Weeds,” and more.
Alternative band Cxpital performed as the opening act. The band formed after members and PNW alumni Lucie Ashmore, MA ‘21, BA ‘19 and Benji Grimmler BA ‘21 met during a Communication and Creative Arts class and joined with Tyler Maximoff of St. John. The band released its first extended play (EP) “Imposter” in 2021.
