Metro Station will headline Texas Tech University’s annual spring concert Raider City Limits from 6 to 9 p.m. April 8 at Urbanovsky Park.

In addition to Metro Station, the event also will include performances by Tech Activities Board singer/songwriter winner Colin Barth and circus entertainment group Aerial Angels.

Troy Pike, unit coordinator of Student Union and Activities, said Metro Station is one of the highest profile bands Raider City Limits has hosted.

“This will be the third year Raider City Limits is hosted, and this is the first time we’ve been able to bring in a band that has had a top 10 hit song like ‘Shake It,’” Pike said. “We hope this event paves the way for the continued growth of Raider City Limits and other programming opportunities on campus.”

Raider City Limits, hosted by the Tech Activities Board and Recreational Sports, is free for everyone to attend. The event will include T-shirts, food, drinks, games and access to the campus Leisure Pool for all Texas Tech students with a valid ID. Students are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets to sit on.

“It’s a great event for students,” said Scott Layher, unit assistant director of Recreational Sports. “We hope they’ll have some fun and forget about all the projects and exams they have coming up.”

More information about Raider City Limits is available at the event’s webpage.
