Upcoming Free Performance: OK Go and the Bathtub Dogs
Of all the superlatives ever thrown at OK Go, “world’s most creative band” might fit best. Famous for their infectious songs, viral videos and inventing treadmill choreography, OK Go is scheduled to give two FREE performances at the Lied Center for Performing Arts September 11 and 12. The performances will be exclusive to UNL students.

Joining OK Go for these special performances is UNL’s premier male a cappella group, The Bathtub Dogs. Fun and humor are as much a part of the group as their inspiring vocal talent which has led them to the national a cappella scene.

As part of the Lied’s 25th anniversary, these artists will launch the Lied Center’s first ever “Big Red Lied Experience.” This program will provide an exclusive opportunity for an additional 4,000 UNL students to experience a performance at the Lied Center at no cost. The Big Red Lied Experience was developed to further the Lied Center’s initiative to provide a professional performing arts experience to every UNL student during their time on campus.

What is Arts For All?
The Lied Center’s vision is that every University of Nebraska - Lincoln student graduates having had at least one professional arts performance at the Lied as a part of their college experience. To support this vision, the Lied Center has led the way nationally, designing ways for students to see world-class performances at affordable prices while also providing transformative engagement opportunities with Lied artists.

Annually, UNL students can get free tickets to many of the Lied’s top performances. The majority of free tickets are released on the first day of classes in the fall and spring. Additional tickets are often released throughout the semester as they become available. Free tickets can be reserved at http://www.go.unl.edu/arts4all.
