Tina and the B-Side Movement
To Perform April 3
MAILED: March 18, 1998|
EAU CLAIRE -- "The Twin Cities' reigning pop band" (Minneapolis Star-Tribune) -- will perform in concert Friday, April 3, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The show will begin at 8 p.m. in the Council Fire Room, Davies Center.
Led by charismatic singer-writer Tina Schlieske, Tina and the B-Side Movement made its major-label debut in 1996 with "Salvation" (Elektra). The Saint Paul Pioneer Press called the recording "proof positive that the B-Side Movement may be headed for the big leagues."
"Through hard work and a love for blues, rock and country music, Tina [has] guided the B-Side Movement into a Midwest phenomenon often called by critics 'the best bar band in the country,'" wrote a Chicago Sun-Times reviewer.
Over the past decade the Minneapolis quintet has won thousands of fans for its soulful rock 'n' roll sound and live performances. Perhaps the most zealously followed band in the Midwest, the group has sold nearly 40,000 records ("Monster" in 1994, "Young Americans" in 1992) on its own Movement Records label -- on the strength of word of mouth and live performances alone.
Tickets are $7 ($5 for UW-Eau Claire students) at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, and at the door. The show is open to all ages; proof of age is required in the bar area.
The concert is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
