Stanford is de-frosting the Frost Amphitheater next month with a three-act show headlined by Seattle indy rock goliath Modest Mouse.
Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and picnics to the gently sloping lawn in front of the amphitheater. The event is alcohol-free.
"What I love most about Stanford is that students have eclectic tastes in music. You can walk from house to house on the Row and hear everything from modern electronic dance music to bluegrass, indie rock to hip-hop," Stephen Trusheim, '13, one of the organizers of the Frost Revival, told Stanford News Service. "When we thought about Frost, we wanted to let Stanford and the entire Bay Area experience rock the way rock was meant to be experienced – in a beautiful, open, outdoor venue surrounded by your closest friends."
Frost Amphitheater has a rich history, including performances by Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Miles Davis, and the Grateful Dead. The last big act to perform there was Mos Def in 2006.
The venue opened in 1937 and was designed by Leslie Kiler (class of 1924).
