Photos: CU Welcome Fest with Big Gigantic, Paper Diamond

CU WELCOME FEST at FARRAND FIELD | 8.20.11
The University of Colorado at Boulder held the annual Welcome Fest for students attending the institution this fall. The student-only event was closed off to the general public, but it still managed to pull big numbers to see Big Gigantic, Paper Diamond, Robotic Pirate Monkey and Common Ties, all of which are Boulder-based acts.
