Circa Survive to Play Great Hall on St. Patrick's Day

1 min read

After an awesome show from Jimmy Eat World last month, UMW students will be treated to a St. Patrick’s Day show from rock group Circa Survive when they come to the Great Hall courtesy of Giant Productions.

Circa Survive formed in 2004 and has slowly made a name for themselves through extensive touring, three albums and a blistering live show.

Their most recent release, 2010’s “Blue Sky Noise,” was met with critical acclaim and reached #9 on MySpace’s list of the 50 best albums of 2010.

Album highlights such as “Get Out” and “Imaginary Enemy” are sure to be crowd pleasers at the group’s March 17 performance.

Circa offers a unique sound somewhere between indie and progressive rock and have toured with bands ranging from Coheed and Cambria to the instrumental prog-metal trio Animals as Leaders.

The band is comprised of accomplished musicians that have much more to offer than the standard three-power-chord rockers that make up so many other bands’ output.

Their most notable characteristic is without a doubt their prolific front man Anthony Green who also performs solo and plays with Saosin and the Sound of Animals Fighting.
Circa Survive puts on an exciting live show that is not to be missed, especially considering the price of student tickets.

Circa Survive tickets are $3 per student and $10 per non-student and sold in the OSACS office. The show will be in the Great Hall on March 17.
