Citizen King to Perform|
Sept. 18 at UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: Sept. 11, 1998|
Citizen King will perform in concert on Friday, Sept. 18, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The show will begin at 8 p.m. in the Council Fire Room, Davies Center. The Buddyrevelles will appear as special guest.
Hailing from the rusty streets on the east side of Milwaukee, Citizen King has honed its sound into a collage of broken teeth, brass knuckles and dollar store tales that has earned the quintet an impressive following in the post-industrial Midwest. The band is on the road in an extensive run-up tour to the release of "Mobile Estates," its major label debut for Warner Bros. Records. Produced by Citizen King's own Dave Cooley and Matt Sims, along with Eric Valentine (of Dwarves, Third Eye Blind, Paris and Smash Mouth renown), the recording defies all convenient categories. The album draws its sample-textured inspiration in part from the group's collection of over 20,000 vintage vinyl records, stored in a specially fabricated vault in Bionic, their downtown Milwaukee recording studio.
Citizen King is D.J. Brooks, drums; Dave Cooley, keyboards; Malcolm Michiles, records; Kristian Riley, guitar; and Matt Sims, vocals and bass.
Tickets are $9 ($7 for UW-Eau Claire students) at the University Service Center in Davies Center, and will be sold at the door. The show is open to all ages; proof of age is required in the bar area.
Patrons may also charge their 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.
