LOGAN—Aggie Radio and the Quadside Café will continue their Quadside Concert Series this semester, kicking off the string of performances on Thursday with local musician Riley Holgate.

The half-hour sets, at 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month, are designed to be a place for student musicians to promote their music.

“Sometimes it’s the artist’s first time playing in front of people,” said Toban Knight, Aggie Radio’s music director. “It’s a nice, intimate setting where they can play their material.”

Quadside Café manager Amber Schoenfeld said one of the most rewarding aspects of her job is to provide students with opportunities to develop their talents.

“We love to showcase student talent whenever possible, not only in the café, but in all of Dining Services,” Schoenfeld wrote in an email. “We see one of our main roles to be a support to students.”

Knight said he anticipates the concert series will also help promote Aggie Radio.

“The Quadside Concert Series helps to get Aggie Radio out there,” he said. “There are still students that don’t even know about us; they don’t know that we have a smart phone app or about our local events.”

Students interested in performing for the Quadside Concert Series are encouraged to contact Aggie Radio via its Facebook page.
