Ratboys with Squirrel Flower

Thursday, February 11
8:00pm - 10:00pm
Great Hall
Link
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Blue Devil Productions is delighted to present Ratboys with opener Squirrel Flower on Thursday, February 11, 2021!

Upheaval and change are themes spread throughout the songs on Printer’s Devil, the latest Ratboys LP, out February 28, 2020 via Topshelf Records. But all the while, singer-songwriter Julia Steiner embraces moments of uncertainty as a necessary part of growing. Steiner recalls a David Byrne lyric, “I’m lost, but I’m not afraid” as inspiration for the transformative outlook, considering the line a personal mantra while writing Ratboys’ third full-length record. “There’s definitely a lot of uncertainty about what’s next, but I like to think that, in the midst of creating a lot of vulnerability for ourselves, we’re confident and becoming more self-assured.”

Ella O’Connor Williams, also known as Squirrel Flower, was born on August 11th 1996, the hottest day of the year, still inside of a translucent caul sac membrane, surrounded by amniotic fluid. Born with a membrane between her and the rest of the world, yet still very much connected to and dependent on a larger life force. It’s this origin story that inspired the name of Squirrel Flower’s new album​ I Was Born Swimming​.

Williams comes from a deep-rooted musical family tree. Growing up in a family of hard working musicians fostered a love of music and started Williams down her own musical path. As a child, Williams adopted the alter ego of Squirrel Flower. By the time Williams had begun performing live, recording and touring she was already well on her way to the signature artful songcraft heard on the album.

The show will be available for in-person attendance in the Great Hall, MSC, as well as a virtual link that can be viewed from anywhere. We hope you enjoy the show!

Kiry Shabazz

MSC Great Hall/Virtual

Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Kiry Shabazz grew up in the harsh, cold streets of Cleveland, Ohio. Not as a gangster, it’s just that Cleveland is absolutely freezing in the winter. While working in a restaurant in 2011 he suddenly decided to leave it all behind and change his life, starting a meteoric, and lauded, career in comedy. His charismatic and witty style, punctuated with trademark hilarious punchlines, made him one of the best up-and-coming acts in Northern California. He has been told, “your comedy changed my life.” He’s never been able to tell if that’s a good thing or bad thing, leading to the type of cyclical paranoia and insecurity that can only lead to torment and good comedy. Since 2018 he’s been rapidly gaining ground as a sought-after act. He made his late-night debut on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, he won the World Series of Comedy Competition AND the 2018 Stand Up NBC series. He’s also been spotted on the Stand Up NBC Comedy Tour.
