Spring has sprung, and we couldn’t be more excited. They say that April showers bring May flowers and if that means bringing on that summer heat, I think it’s safe to say that we’re all ready for it. Say goodbye to the cold weather that seemed to stick around longer than we wanted it to and say hello to warmer weather and perfect pool days. April may have just started, but we’ve already had a lineup of amazing events around the Tallahassee community. From National Beer Day at Lake Tribe and Township to the 50th Springtime Tallahassee Festival: Jubilee in the Park and the first ever Tallahassee Coffee Festival, April has treated us pretty well so far and it’s only going to get better. So, mark your calendars because this month has got a little bit of something for everyone. Trust us – this is no April Fool’s joke.

You can get tickets to the show here and listen to his debut album, At What Cost, here.
April 20: Saba
A Chi-town native, Saba is a rapper and producer inspired by artists like Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West. If you’re a big Chance the Rapper fan, the name should sound familiar since Saba was featured on the rapper’s hit single, “Angels.” The best part? The show will be at Club Downunder, so it’s completely free for FSU students! We’re sure Saba will have the city of Tally doing front flips at this show.
