Pamela Means to Present Free Concerts
at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Sept. 8, 2005

Pamela MeansEAU CLAIRE — Pamela Means will present three free concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Sept. 15-17. Her shows will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday in The Cabin of Davies Center.

A Boston-based indie folk artist armed with razor-wit poetry, provocative songs and a kamikaze guitar style, Means performs her "stark, defiant songs" (The New York Times Magazine) with such intensity that she has worn a hole in her guitar.

Means performs over 150 shows a year at clubs, coffeehouses, colleges and festivals across the country, most notably the Newport Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, South by Southwest Conference, Southern Women's Fest and Michigan Women's Festival. She is a favorite at innumerable regional Gay Pride events, Take Back the Night rallies, and Black History Month celebrations. Her many honors include being named Falcon Ridge Folk Festival's "Most Wanted New Artist," and she has been nominated as Outstanding Contemporary Folk Artist in the Boston Music Awards.

Means has shared the stage with artists including Ani DiFranco, Joan Baez, Neil Young, Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens, Patty Larkin, Melissa Ferrick, Violent Femmes, Pete Seeger, Janis Ian and Holly Near.

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. For a complete schedule, visit The Cabin Web site or contact the Activities and Programs office, (715) 836-4833.
