A "home-grown" blues and classic rock band from northeast Kansas, 13th Step, will perform for this Saturday's GorillaFest at Pittsburg State University. The band is known for a rock and blues sound influenced by the members' love of Hendrix, Cream and Zeppelin. 13th Step will perform from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Gazebo in Gorilla Village just east of Carnie Smith Stadium.
GorillaFest, a free communitywide tailgate party that precedes each home football game, begins at 11 a.m. and concludes at 2 p.m. Students in the Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation will host free games for kids beginning at noon in the shelter house. Food vendors will offer a variety of tailgate foods and several student groups will have booths in the village.
The high point for each GorillaFest is a pep rally led by the Pride of the Plains Marching Band and the PSU Spirit Squad. The pep rally will take place at approximately 1:10 p.m.
