The Wexner Center for the Arts kicks off its summer programming with this celebration of homegrown musical talent held in conjunction with the 2018 Columbus Arts Festival. The wildly eclectic outdoor show begins with local favorites Hugs and Kisses and Future Nuns, continues with minimalist percussion ensemble Tigue (Ohio State alumni Matt Evans, Amy Garapic, and Carson Moody), and finishes with drummer/musicologist Mark Lomax II performing alongside tenor saxophonist Eddie Bayard and DJ Krate Digga.
