Mubs and Jandro - It’s Spring Cleaning by: Brett Briggeman

Jackson Dyer, a sophomore worship leadership major from Granbury, is also known as the indie music artist, Mubs. He will be hosting a free-to-attend concert in the Baptist Student Ministry (BSM) Courtyard at 6 p.m. on April 26. This event will be a time of fantastic live music, community and also will provide the opportunity to go thrift shopping in the courtyard. 

Dyer has released one full album, “Chasing Wind”and a single, “Closer Sooner” while here at Hardin-Simmons University, in addition to other singles released in 2023. 

“I love putting together events just because I get to see all my friends and loved ones come together and celebrate something that we can all enjoy, which is just music,” Dyer said. “I write songs that usually wouldn't seem like they're about God, but that are from a faith based perspective. Even when I write songs about love, that aren't really about God, they're still from that perspective of a guy who grew up Christian and who is still a devout Christian. I love writing about my walk with the Lord, in the form of songs that you usually wouldn't hear on a Christian radio station.”

Dyer’s unique techniques and takes on music have created a dedicated and passionate following online and on the HSU campus. He has labeled the event as a spring cleaning concert, which ties into the thrift shopping happening at the event. He is also partnering with the HSU Baptist Student Ministry to sponsor this event.

“We're actually going to be selling a bunch of clothes and raising funds and selling some of my own merchandise, and 25 percent of that is going to the BSM’s fundraiser of choice, Go Now Missions,” Dyer said. “Then we're going to be able to pay the other musicians who are helping me out and the people who are donating their clothes.”

Opening the show for Mubs is Alejandro Govea, a junior worship leadership major from Argyle, under the pseudonym Jandro, who will also be sharing some original music. 

“It's just going to be a fun time.” Dyer said. “ We're not going to take ourselves too seriously.  I'm promoting new music that hasn't even been released yet as well.”

Also at this event is Gold Coin Thrift Co., a secondhand retail company run by Courtney Govea, here in Abilene. Govea is a senior graphic design major from Salado. The items at the show will be under $5 and may be purchased through Venmo. They will begin posting items on their Instagram page April 29 that also may be bought through Venmo.

“We like to prioritize pretty unique finds,” Govea said. “Our selection includes things like, cool button ups, unique jackets, sweatshirts, vintage, especially vintage. We  will have women's and men's selections. And we'll throw in some shoes that we've thrifted, and maybe a couple household items, just a bunch of random stuff.”

This event is bound to be a great time with music, community and unique shopping opportunities.
