[Source: ASU] — ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus is using the power of music to engage faculty, staff, and students to build lasting relationships with their local community.  Try Me Bicycle will headline the inaugural “Know Your Neighbor” free concert series, which starts next week and runs through November.  Sponsored by the Arizona State University Downtown Phoenix campus and local communities, the series is open to the public and designed to introduce students to each other and the community where they live.  

“The Know Your Neighbor concert series is an exciting opportunity for ASU faculty, staff and student body to get to know local venues, musicians, community members and each other,” said Malissa Geer, community engagement liaison for the Office of the University Vice President at the Downtown Phoenix campus.  “Our campus is surrounded by many local businesses and organizations that are eager to know our faculty, students and staff in a much more meaningful way.  Using the arts and local venues is only one of the many unique ways for ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus to become even more integrated into this rich and vibrant community.”

The series kicks off on Tuesday, Sept. 23 at Cibo, 603 N. Fifth Ave.  Additional shows by Try Me Bicycle are scheduled for downtown Phoenix Sunnyslope, Grand Avenue Arts District, and Roosevelt Row.  A portion of the band’s debut CD, Voicings, will go toward future support of community engagement activities.  [Note: To read the full article, click here.]
