The Verve Pipe

When: Sat., Dec. 17, 8 p.m. 2016

The Verve Pipe is probably the best band to come out of Michigan State. “Freshman” is definitely their most well-known hit, and with good reason because it’s one of the best sad songs of the late ’90s. The Verve Pipe also garnered international success with “Photograph,” “Hero,” and “Happiness Is.” The alt-rock trio is multiplatinum at this point, and has, in recent years, branched into family music, but still plays “grown-up” music too. It’s a show that you and your kids will have a blast at.

Price: $25-$30
