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.  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. 

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.
