What is it that makes you...YOU? Pixar Animation Studios’ introduces Joe Gardner – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.

Sister Species featuring Spencer Douglas

Thursday, April 8
8:00pm - 10:00pm
Great Hall, MSC
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

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.

This event is co-sponsored between Involvement, the English and Philosophy Department and the Literature Committee to allow us to bring in Karen Loeb, Professor Emerita UW-Eau Claire, and Eau Claire Writer in Residence from 2018-2020. UW Stout's creative writing professor Daniel Ruefman will lead a mini-workshop following Karen's reading.
