Bad Bad Hats is an indie rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Kerry Alexander and Chris Hoge met in college and formed the band in 2012. In the 10 years of BBH, they have toured the country many times in their trusty minivan, sampling the best local cuisine along the way. Their fun and upbeat sound is sure to make you groove. 

Yonder consists of band members who stem from a background in various local groups with intertwining histories: front women Hattie Peach (violinist, vocalist) and Emma Jeanne (rhythm guitar, vocalist) began experimenting as co-writers years ago as college roommates in Duluth, MN. Peach brings the folk flair to the band with a knack for lyrical storytelling that comes from a lifelong dedication to blood harmonies with her family group, The Penny Peaches. Emma Jeanne adds distorted punk rock guitar and searing lyrics fused with her witty songwriting. Sidestepping from his typical role as frontman and bassist of Lapdogs, Oliver Gerber returns to his true love, lead guitar. Hailing from Rochester, Dylan Hilliker holds down the ones and twos on drums in Greentop, Horse Tornado, and now Yonder. The latest addition, Calvin Carrison, of infamous jester-core group Big Delicious brings the bass.

The 2024 lineup is our BIGGEST yet, with 18 total groups (9 headliners and 9 openers).

The event is free and open to the public from 5 to 8 pm. Gates open at 5 pm, however, for those interested, early access can be obtained by purchasing grounds admission or a tour. Each night, the opener will perform from 5:30-6 pm and the headliner will play from 6:30-8 pm.

At Concerts, guests can connect with neighbors and friends, play lawn games, grab some grub from a local food truck, enjoy a refreshing drink, eat locally-made ice cream, and take a seat by the shores of Lake Superior. Guests are encouraged to paddle or boat in to view the concert from the water or are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the show from the shore.

For each concert this year, Glensheen will also offer a free shuttle bus (with a suggested donation) between the UMD campus and Glensheen. Parking at UMD is free. More information can be found at https://glensheen.org/concerts/event-information/.
