For the first time, Baylor’s Acoustic Café will incorporate a new theme into its traditional showcase of students’ art and music tonight with “Bro Night at Acoustic Café” – featuring only male performers. The event will take place from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m in the Bill Daniel Student Center Den.
“It’s kind of fun to have an Acoustic Café based on male students,” Keith Frazee, assistant director of campus programs and one of the event’s organizers, said.
The Café will offer free “man food,” such as pizza and wings, to all who attend. There will also be video games set up on XBox and Wii.
Fifth and Fite, one of the night’s performers, is an all-male band that originated in Pearland, Texas.
Members include brothers junior Michael Agnew (vocals) and freshman Jacob Agnew (vocals and acoustic guitar); sophomore Cameron Butcher (vocals, acoustic/electric guitar); and sophomore Byron Roldan (drums and percussion).
This will be the group’s first appearance at Acoustic Café, where they will wrap up the night as the final performance at 9:45 p.m.
The band will be playing some original songs, along with a few cover songs.
But because of their acoustic style, they’re “definitely not a cover band,” according to Jacob Agnew.
Michael Agnew called the group’s music “American – with a rap twist.”
On March 22, Acoustic Café will feature “Ladies Night at Acoustic Café.” But ladies are invited to attend Bro’s Night as well, according to the Baylor Student Activities website.
