Stephen Fullmer, UVU professor and teacher of this semester’s Themes in Literature class, has collaborated with his students in getting bands Adjacent to Nothing and Forsaken Reminiscence to perform on campus April 27.
The class, which focused this semester on the subculture and musical influence of heavy metal, has been trying all semester to get a prominent heavy metal band or musician to guest lecture in the class.
Taking the endeavor a step further, Fullmer and his class were able to contact Brennan
Walker, the guitarist for prominent heavy
metal band Adjacent to Nothing, and convince him to put on a benefit concert on campus.
Adjacent to Nothing will be donating a few CD’s, and is also selling signed CD’s after the concert. All proceeds will go toward the scholarship fund. You can check out the band by searching for them at myspace.com
Forsaken Reminiscence will warm up the crowd, also donating their efforts for the benefit concert.
The fund is in honor of UVU philosophy students Blake Donner and Jenn Galbraith, both of whom died in a cave accident in Provo Canyon in August 2005. The fund, which has been the recipient of many benefit concerts and events since its founding, gives a one-year, half-tuition scholarship to UVU students with high academic achievement and an interest in challenging social ills.
Admission to the concert is free, but there will be a donation jar for those willing to donate to the Donner/Galbraith Scholarship Fund.
When: April 27, 7-10:30 p.m.
Where: Grande Ballroom
