MUNA w/ Lo Moon
Tuesday, February 7, 2017
Doors 8pm / Show 8pm
$5.00 UCSD students / $10.00 general

Tickets available on-line (up to 7pm), and at the entrance to the show!

Via memorable headscarves, premature life crises, and three individual obsessions with making music, MUNA arrived at their self-described dark pop of 2016 and a debut EP in Loudspeaker, which they take full credit for. They write and produce everything themselves simply because they can. Besides containing four catchy slices of MUNA melodic fire, intended to lay the groundwork for a future album, the title is aptly named. It represents the trios intention to wield their musical platform and voice their innermost anxieties, truths and impressions of the human race, while having the time of their - and your - lives. Bolstered by their inner gang confidence, theyre fearless when it comes to just being MUNA: individualist, intelligent and sidesplittingly funny. Their listening sessions comprise of everything from Fleetwood Mac and Talking Heads to Massive Attack, LUSH and Cocteau Twins.

Stephanie Richards + Phantom Station: Conduction for Butch Morris
Monday, January 30, 2017
Doors 7:30pm / Show 8pm

This three-part series excavates spontaneous sonic combustion and delves into the unknown through Conduction, an artistic process created by Butch Morris to enable "an improvised duet for ensemble and conductor" without words or musical notation. Through a process of ideographic physical signs and gestures, Prof. Stephanie Richards conducts the ensemble Phantom Station to create a communion of multiple intelligences and a bravely vulnerable creative journey into the unknown.

Phantom Station is a collective of artists and graduate students of the UCSD Department of Music, performing January 30, February 27 and March 13.
Each concert will feature a special guest.
