Brookville band to take imminent domain of Union on Wednesday

Many Washburn students may be oblivious to live bands that frequently perform free, easy-to-access shows in

the student union during students’ lunch breaks.

Students are invited to gather at noon on Wednesday in the lower level

of the Memorial Union for Tunes @ Noon, an event organized by the

Campus Activities Board that brings live bands to Washburn every few

weeks during the school year.

The featured guests this week will be Imminent Domain, a rock group

based out of Brookville, Kan. According to the band’s Myspace page,

its sound consists of an eclectic mix of rock, pop punk and emo.

playing at the same time,” Haug said. “But all the other Tunes @ Noon

will be on Tuesdays.”

Haug said his goal for Tunes @ Noon this year is to find acts that

will bring larger crowds to the shows. Tunes @ Noon has been a

fixture at Washburn in recent years, and CAB executive director

Billie Jean Bergmann said many of the shows have drawn large crowds of

people, although audience turnout varies from show to show.

“It just depends on the performer,” Bergmann said. “We’ve had some

where there’s anywhere from 30 to 40 people, and some all the way up

to 100 or so.”

Bergmann said Tunes @ Noon usually attracts local area bands that

want to get their names out.

“But this year we’re trying to focus on different kinds of acts,”

said Bergmann. “One thing we’re going to try to focus on this year is

Myspace artists, so students can check out the bands’ music before the
