EAU CLAIRE — Popular Minneapolis-based pop-punk band Quietdrive will headline a Feb. 16 concert at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Doors will open at 7 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center.

Formed in 2002, Quietdrive released its Epic Records debut, "When All That's Left Is You," in 2006. "Rise from the Ashes," the first single from the album, was featured on the soundtrack for the EA Sports videogame "NHL 2007." Quietdrive was named Artist of the Month on Xbox Live in January 2007.

Quietdrive toured extensively throughout 2006 and 2007. Its cover of the Cyndi Lauper song "Time After Time" was used in WNBA promotions, featured on the soundtrack for the 2006 film "John Tucker Must Die," and featured in the trailer for the 2008 remake of the horror film "Prom Night." The song also reached No. 33 on the American Top 40 syndicated countdown show. Quietdrive continues to tour and will record a new album early this year.

Madison-based alternative rock band The Box Social also will perform at the Feb. 16 concert. Influenced by groups ranging from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers to Sonic Youth, The Box Social presents hooky, energetic songwriting coupled with exciting live shows. Opening the show will be Minnesota-based rock band The Soviet Machines.

Tickets are $10 ($8 for UW-Eau Claire students) at the Service Center in Davies Center's east lobby and will be sold at the door. The show is open to all ages. Proof of age will be required for alcohol purchases.

Patrons can 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 telephone charge orders.

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