Tickets are on sale now for Capital Cities, performing live in concert in Halton Arena on April 13, with special guest Scavenger Hunt. Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, the Los Angeles duo of composers, initially met on Craigslist in 2008. Working as jingle writers, they formed the indie electro band Capital Cities in 2010. In 2011, they released their debut EP with the song "Safe and Sound," an upbeat mesh of synths and melody that spread like wildfire across the Internet.
Ticket prices start at $15 for UNC Charlotte students and $22 for faculty, staff and the general public. Visit Halton Arena's website for details.
UNC Charlotte’s Women’s History Month programs will showcase and discuss the many issues facing women throughout history. Sponsored by the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC), the programs are free and open to the public.
"Women’s experiences are very complex, and the issues for women intersect with a lot of other communities," said Joshua Burford, assistant director for sexual / gender diversity for the MRC. "We wanted to expand the conversation to talk about women and their allies from both a contemporary and historical context."
