The Driver Era to close out Spring Fling


Rock band The Driver Era is coming to SUNY Cortland as headliners of the school’s Spring Fling concert on Saturday, April 27. 

The concert caps a week of Spring Fling events attuned to this year’s Coachella theme — evoking the sun, fun and style of the legendary California music festival. 

Featuring brothers Rocky and Ross Lynch, The Driver Era’s music is an addictive mix of alt-rock, funk, indie and R&B that’s entertained audiences in the U.S. and around the world. Their latest single, “Get Off My Phone,” was released earlier this year. Opening for The Driver Era will be New York City-based group Movie Night.  

Tickets are cash only and will be sold at the Corey Union Info Center. They cost $20 for Cortland students, $30 for the general public and $50 at the door. Only one $20 ticket per student is allowed. 

For a chance to win three free tickets to the show, follow @cortlandsab on Instagram, share the account’s concert post and tag two SUNY Cortland friends on the post. Winners will be contacted Monday, April 1, on Instagram. 

All Spring Fling events are presented by the Student Activities Board, including the annual Spring Fling Carnival, which will be held on the Moffett Center lawn from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the day of the concert. Any changes to the schedule will be posted to Instagram.
