If three fantastic bands, terrific food and wine sampling sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday evening, then join in the fun at a special tailgate party going on before the Centennial Campaign Concert at Kent State University’s Dix Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 8. The concert features headliner Sheryl Crow, along with O.A.R. and Los Lonely Boys.
