EAU CLAIRE — Minneapolis pop-rock band Hyland will headline a free outdoor concert Sept. 11 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Special guest In Harbour will open the show at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall.

Hyland features dynamic guitar work, soaring melodies, clever piano hooks and a driven rock sound reminiscent of the Foo Fighters and Sanctus Real. The band's new EP, "Quotients" (2009), was recorded with Ben Kasica of Skillet and Nick Rad of Acceptance.

Also based in the Twin Cities, In Harbour started writing and playing music together in fall 2007 and released its first single, "Storm Clouds Break," on Christmas Day. After an impressive live debut performance in February 2008, the band started landing bigger shows with names such as Sleeping at Last and The Graduate. The group's debut EP is "The Hardest Part is Learning to Swim" (2008).

In the event of rain, the show will move from the mall between Zorn Arena and Schneider Hall to the Council Fire Room of Davies Center.

Sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate, the free concert is open to all ages.
