North Central brings the alternative rock band Quietdrive to campus for a concert on Thursday, Feb. 17, in Pfeiffer Hall. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the opening band Bascom Hill will start the show at 7 p.m. Admission for North Central students, faculty and staff is free with an ID. Tickets are $5 for the public and can be purchased at the door or in advance. To reserve your seat, visit the box office or call 630-637-SHOW (7469).
Quietdrive comes to North Central College after the band’s Pretty Good Friends tour in January and will perform in a string of concerts throughout the Midwest, with other stops at colleges in Wisconsin, South Dakota and Iowa.
Originally from Minneapolis, Quietdrive found success as a pop-punk band and has been working to establish its identity as a timeless rock band through its new self-titled album. Lead singer Kevin Truckenmiller says, “This album is the most honest story I have ever told since I started recording music.”
The self-proclaimed rock-and-roll group Bascom Hill opens for the main act and is named for the landmark quad of the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where the group is based. The members of Bascom Hill pride themselves in writing their own music and have shared the bill with bands such as The Fray, Augustana, Hanson and Lifehouse.
Following the performance, members of Quietdrive will be available for autographs. Tour merchandise also will be available for purchase.
This event is sponsored by the College Union Activities Board. The North Central student club plans events for students and the community throughout the academic year. For more information contact Brandon Kurzweg at 630-637-5421 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
