Popular Indie band Good Old War will perform during UW’s annual President’s Barbecue Monday, Aug. 27, on Fraternity Mall.

A barbecue with entertainment by the nationally known indie band Good Old War will launch the University of Wyoming's 2012-13 academic year.

President Tom Buchanan's annual welcome back barbecue is Monday, Aug. 27, at 5 p.m. on Fraternity Mall, and will feature remarks from the ASUW president and vice president. Free food will be provided to students.

During the past three years, indie-folk trio Good Old War has captivated countless audiences with its acoustic-driven, sing-along-inspiring live performances. With the release of its third full-length album, “Come Back as Rain,” the Philadelphia-based band “harnesses the high-spirited simplicity that makes their shows so unforgettable,” according to one reviewer.
