Arizona State University's Programming and Activities Board must've had a major bankroll at its disposal for this year's homecoming week (which starts tomorrow) since the student-run organizations is bringing in Travis McCoy and the rest of the Gym Class Heroes crew for the occasion.
The rap-rock group will headline a performance at Tempe Beach Park this coming Wednesday with support from Indianapolis indie rockers The Last Good Year and comedian Craig Robinson (The Office, Pineapple Express).
The party's open to non-students, albeit at an increased price ($22 in advance, $27 at the gate). Here's another caveat: Tickets are only available in limited quantities and can only be purchased through the ASU Bookstore. Better get moving ASAP if you're fittin' to attend this outdoor event.
