Just a few days before Halloween night will be the NoMAD concert, “The Witching Hour”. The concert will be Saturday, Oct. 28 at 8 p.m. at the Northern Center. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. 

Three bands will be performing, the first being the opener and a local band from Marquette called Passed Out, Curbside. A local indie alternative band featuring Northern Michigan University students.

The second band is twin sister group Aint Afraid, a band from Detroit, Michigan that’s a mixture of hip hop, pop, and soul music. They’re Baltimore natives who were raised in Detroit, and have been singing since they were two years old. 

Ending the night with a band coming all the way from Los Angeles, a surf rock band called Spooky Mansion, who fits perfectly into the set just in time for Halloween.

Community Outreach Coordinator for NoMAD and third year NMU student, Thomas Chicka, fulfills the needs of marketing and outreach within the campus market area.

“I’ve always been really passionate about music. It’s been a big part of my life, and this is kind of something I picked up for fun,” Chicka said. “[I] have really enjoyed the community that NoMAD brings.”

If you are interested, dance into the Halloween season with The Witching Hour lineup. You can register on The Hub. There will also be a costume contest for those who wish to participate.

Abigail Faix, Features Editor
My name is Abby, I am a fourth-year student at Northern. I am studying Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Political Science. I've always been passionate about journalism since I was in high school. I was offered this position as a Journalism Practicum student and am now so thankful to have the opportunity to write for The Northwind as the new Features Editor. I've found that The Northwind has led me to more connections throughout the university and community than I would find on my own. I'm always interested in getting to know new people and what's happening around Marquette.
