L.A. pop-rock band to perform for GorillaFest

The Los Angeles-based pop-rock group Thornbird will be the featured entertainment for this week's GorillaFest, beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23, in Gorilla Village, just east of Pittsburg State University's Carnie Smith Stadium.

Thornbird is an up and coming group that travels extensively. Their song "So Beautiful" was featured on the hit NBC television show "Providence." Thornbird will perform in the Gazebo in Gorilla Village from 11 a.m. until approximately 1:15 p.m.

GorillaFest is a gigantic, free tailgate party that precedes each home football game at PSU. In addition to live music, a variety of tailgate food will be for sale. Games for kids, provided by students in the Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation, will begin at noon. The highlight of each GorillaFest is a pep rally led by the Pride of the Plains Marching Band and the PSU Spirit Squad.
