Show opener, The Seen, is an original rock band from Omaha. The Reader once described their music saying "The Seen's melodic but driving sound situates itself between post-hardcore indie rockers like Thursday, Omaha's own Cursive, and bigger pop punk leaning acts like Say Anything. This is big sounding guitar rock delivered with impassioned vocals." After the release of their Spring 2013 album, the band hit the road, playing shows in support of Cursive, Hawthorne Heights and Ladyfinger.
Public parking is available for Opening Celebration Day at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha/CenturyLink Center, at Creighton University or at city owned lots in the downtown Omaha area. Metro's popular circulator routes also will be available. Visit NCAA.com/CWS for more information.
