Leonardtown Campus Twilight Performances

The remaining Leonardtown concert features  With Lying Eyes July 28. All performances begin at 6:45 pm.

When With Lying Eyes was formed in late 2009, it consisted of lifelong friends Chris Dean and David Hamner playing acoustic covers of their favorite bands for a handful of viewers on YouTube. Since then, the band has evolved into a five-piece alternative metal act comprised of Hamner on vocals and guitar, Mr. Dean and Jesse Cusic on guitar, Dylan Gausman on bass and Nick Cusic on drums. Though the oldest member is only 21 years old, With Lying Eyes has released two EPs and one full-length album to date and has played countless venues in the area, including Charm City Art Space, the Ottobar, Sonar and Empire. Through their music, With Lying Eyes aim to emulate and honor the bands they grew up listening to, like Silverstein, Dishwalla, We Came as Romans, Breaking Benjamin and Underoath, among others. For information, visit here.

The Prince Frederick military concert will be performed by the U.S. Navy Band “Cruisers” July 30.

CSM’s Children’s Theatre’s performance of “Sneetches” will take place indoors on all three campuses, with performances at the Leonardtown Campus Aug. 4, the La Plata Campus Aug. 5, and the Prince Frederick Campus Aug. 6.

“Sneetches” is a play adapted from the Dr. Seuss story of the same name. The story follows a group of yellow creatures called “Sneetches,” some of whom have a green star on their bellies. At the beginning of the story, Sneetches with stars discriminate against and shun those without. The story was intended by Dr. Seuss to be a satire of discrimination between races and cultures and was specifically inspired by his opposition to anti-Semitism. The performances will be indoors Aug. 4 in the Auditorium, Building A in Leonardtown; Aug. 5 inthe Fine Arts Center in La Plata; and Aug. 6 Building B, Multipurpose Room, in Prince Frederick. All performances begin at 6:45 p.m.
