PREVIEW: VISIT N*E*R*D*’s MySpace
After being very secretive about their “special mystery act” University Union announced today that Shay Haley, Chad Hugo, and music superstar Pharrell Williams— N*E*R*D*— will perform at Block Party 2010. N*E*R*D* will join headliner Drake and opening acts Francis and the Lights, and K-OS for the concert which is scheduled for Friday, April 30th at The Carrier Dome. N*E*R*D* will bring an interesting element to this year’s Block Party. Their energetic rock/ hip-hop style will definitely get the crowd warmed up for Drake.
