UNIQUE Programs is pleased to present a concert featuring twenty | one | pilots. The concert will be hosted in the Sacramento State University Union Ballroom at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, February 19, 2013.
In its purest form, music acts as a conduit of self-expression that’s free from the conventions of society. That spirit of fearlessness lies at the core of twenty | one | pilots, an Ohio-based group whose musical vision is completely their own. Over the past few years the duo of front man Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun have built a hardcore following that seems primed to reach a fever pitch with the January 8, 2013 release of their Fueled By Ramen debut Vessel. They were recently names one of MTV’s "2013 Artists to Watch".
For Vessel, the band entered a real studio for the first time ever with Grammy nominated producer Greg Wells (Weezer, Adele) to craft an album which merges elements of hip hop, indie rock and punk in a way that’s so seamless that you’ll be rapping along one minute and caught up in a lush orchestral line on a song like "Car Radio " in the next minute. "
Opening for twenty | one | pilots will be the high-energy, guitar-driven blend of punk, pop and electronically induced dance rock by New Poltics. Signed to RCA Records, the Danish band relocated to New York City in the late 2000’s.
twenty | one | pilots will perform at Sacramento State’s University Union Ballroom on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 7:30 pm. Admission is $10 for Sac State students and $14 for the general public, available at the Sacramento State Ticket Office or online at www.SacStateUNIQUE.com.
