Sister Species featuring Spencer Douglas

Blue Devil Productions is excited to welcome Emily Kastrul of Sister Species to campus on Thursday, April 8 in the Great Hall, MSC!

As an accordionist and songwriter, Emily Kastrul (Betazoid, Hazel Ra) has led chamber-pop septet Sister Species since 2011: a band known for their thoughtful, dynamic arrangements and opulent three-part trumpet harmonies. Kastrul’s intimate and intricate songwriting spans from bleak pop anthems about the inevitable heat death of the universe to drone songs about loss and cottonwood trees.

Performing solo, Kastrul will share stripped-down versions of songs from Sister Species' two most recent records. In addition, she will share new, unreleased works and experimental improved soundscapes.

We're excited to welcome Spencer Douglas back to campus as our opener!

From a naïve 14-year-old eager to become a musician, Spencer has evolved into a moderately experienced 17-year-old musician, still eager to learn and striving for continued musical growth. “Princess Charming,” the debut EP of Spencer Douglas, is the first chapter in a young singer-songwriter's journey to share his personal voice. Taking influences from multiple styles, each song is an exploration and interpretation of relationships and personal reflections. The EP features a range of reflective lyrics, upbeat instrumentation and catchy melodies composed, arranged and recorded by the teen when he was 15. He plans to continue his musical journey and have some fun along the way.

How to Self-Advocate

How to Self-Advocate

Believe in Yourself! You are a unique and valuable person. You are worth the effort and you can do it!

  1. Know Your Rights - You are entitled to equality under the law and have the same rights as others

  2. Decide What You Want - Clarify with yourself exactly what it is you need. This will help you set goals and be clear to others.

  3. Get the Facts - You need to know what you are talking about and what you are asking for to be able to speak in confidence

  4. Plan - Come up with a strategy that you think will get you the best results. Think of several ways to address a problem, ask for support or suggestions, get feedback, then choose one and take action!

  5. Gather Support - it is helpful to have friends and family who back you up

  6. Express Yourself Clearly - be brief, stick to the point, repeat if necessary and stand your ground. Be firm and persistent and don’t give up!

  7. Assert Yourself - try not to lose your temper or last out on the other person, but speak respectfully and don’t let others put you down
