Sister Species featuring Spencer Douglas

Thursday, April 8
8:00pm - 10:00pm
Private Location (rsvp to display)
Link
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

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.
