Neon Trees (pictured), an alternative rock band from Provo, Utah, and Grouplove a Los Angeles-based indie band attracted nearly 900 fans April 17 to the annual Mirthday concert at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. The concert was held in the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center. The Capital Kings, a Washington, D.C., Christian pop band, opened for the headliners.

Abby Wood, a junior majoring in business administration at UMSL and a country music fan, said she attended the concert with friends.

“They listen to alternative rock, so I listened to their music recently, and I decided to go,” Wood said. “The concert was fun, and I had a really good time.”
