This week WXPN presents a live midday concert featuring Twin Cities' Hippo Campus. The quartet plays their own unique flavor of indie-rock, weaving pop melodies into the mix. With just their debut EP "Bashful Creatures" under their belt, they have made quite a splash already. Having met in high school, the act is now far from where they started. In addition, Hippo Campus will be playing the Made In America festival September 6th. You can hear the show on the air at 88.5 or you can see it in person by RSVP'ing below.
