Something To Do to Headline at March 27 Ska Fest at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: March 25, 2009

EAU CLAIRE — Something To Do will headline the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's 14th annual Ska Fest concert March 27. Doors will open at 8 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center.

After Something To Do won a national songwriting competition in 2003, the group earned mentions on CNN Headline News, National Public Radio and in more than 150 other media outlets. Known for its ultra-catchy, horn-driven rock, the Waukesha-based fan favorites have played shows across the Midwest, the East Coast and Canada. In 2005 the group was nominated for two Wisconsin Area Music Industry awards, including Band of the Year.

Also taking the stage at Ska Fest will be two Twin Cities groups — 2 Tone Runts, a politically conscious ska/punk band; and Umbrella Bed, a 10-member lineup consisting of drums, a twin-guitar assault, singer, bass, and a five-piece horn section they call the Horns of Mass Destruction.

The show is open to all ages. Proof of age will be required for alcohol purchases.

Tickets are $6 ($4 with UW-Eau Claire student ID card) at the Service Center in Davies Center, and will be sold at the door. Patrons may 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 all telephone charge orders.

Tickets for all campus events also are on sale at the Service Center's ticket office in the main lobby of Haas Fine Arts Center. The Haas ticket outlet is open from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is closed during holidays and academic breaks.

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