Minneapolis’ Motion City Soundtrack
To Perform at UW-Eau Claire Dec. 12

 MAILED:  Nov. 24, 2003

EAU CLAIRE — Motion City Soundtrack will headline a concert of pop punk Friday, Dec. 12, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the Minneapolis quintet’s show in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center. The Red Hot Valentines and Attention: will appear as special guests.

Combining jagged guitars and emotional melodies with a spiraling synth, stop-and-start dynamics and ironic lyrics, Motion City Soundtrack released its debut album, “I Am the Movie” (Epitaph) in June. Produced by the legendary emo rock producer Ed Rose, the recording was heralded as “a pop-rock knockout” by New Music Monthly. “All 14 tracks showcase a knack for quirky hooks set atop soaring guitars that makes that wait for MCS’s sophomore effort almost unbearable,” reviewer Chad Swiatecki wrote.

Tickets are $5 ($3 for UW-Eau Claire students) at the University Service Center, in Davies Center’s west lobby, and at the door. The show is open to all ages.

Patrons may also charge tickets to MasterCard or Visa when they order by phone. Call (715) 836-3727 — or, outside the immediate Eau Claire area, call toll-free (800) 949-UWEC. A $3 handling fee will be added to all telephone charge orders.

The concert is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
