Singer-Songwriter Andy Zipf Brings Captivating
Show to UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Feb. 17, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — Andy Zipf will present three free concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire March 3-5. His shows will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday in The Cabin of Davies Center.

Zipf's music is smart, layered with the sounds and imagery of his surroundings to create a sound he describes as "post-cultural mood rock." His music has been heard on MTV's "One Bad Trip," "Your Face or Mine" and "Date My Mom," and VH-1's "You Rock" and "Bands Reunited." In August he recorded an exclusive live performance for XM Satellite Radio's The Loft Channel where he is currently in rotation.

Zipf has performed for Dana Gioia, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts; supported acts such as Mary Lou Lord and Graham Colton; recently performed at the BMI Acoustic Showcase Series in New York City; and has used his talents to help the homeless, fight AIDS and save the Chesapeake Bay.

Stepping outside the traditional confines of a singer-songwriter, Andy Zipf creates a moody and captivating live show by combining evocative vocals and effects-driven acoustic guitar with organically blended loops and electronic textures pumping through old radios, tape recorders and other interesting gadgets.

The show is open to all ages. Soda, domestic and imported beer and popcorn will be sold; proof of age is required for alcohol purchases.

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