Shakey Graves With Jalan Crossland - Saturday, February 27 

Shakey Graves

Jalan Crossland
Folk Rock Americana Band Shakey Graves is set to take the stage on Saturday, Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. in the University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences auditorium.

UW student tickets will be available Monday, Feb. 8, and tickets for the public beginning Wednesday, Feb. 10. Student tickets cost $20 with a valid UW student ID. Tickets for the public are $30. All tickets are available at the Wyoming Union information desk and Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts box office or by visiting www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

This Austin-based musician performs a cross between blues, country, and rock and roll. Alejandro Rose-Garcia received his iconic stage name in 2007, after he and his friends jokingly gave each other Indian guide names over a campfire. After a night of inspiring music, the name stuck. Shakey Graves has performed in various festivals and venues across the country, and has become known for his one-man band. By now, Rose-Garcia has added other musicians to his recording process, including Esme Patterson, Chris Boosahda, and Patrick O’Connor. Since 2014, Shakey Graves has made numerous television appearances on Conan, David Letterman, and the legendary Austin City Limits TV show. In 2015, Shakey Graves won the Best Emerging Artist award at the 2015 Americana Music Awards.

T.J. Miller - Saturday, March 5

T.J. Miller

Comedian and actor T.J. Miller will perform on Saturday, Mar. 5, at 8 p.m. in the University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences auditorium.

Tickets go on sale for UW Students on Monday, Feb. 8, and tickets will be available for the public beginning Monday, Feb. 15. Student tickets cost $10 with a valid UW student ID. Tickets for the public are $20. All tickets are available at the Wyoming Union Information Desk and Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts box office or by visiting www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

UW Concerts and Convocations and Student Activities Council co-sponsors Miller’s performance. T.J. Miller is one of the most sought after comedians in the comedy world, but not in the drama world, or the finance world. Miller is one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” and listed as EW's “Next Big Thing in Comedy." Most recently, Miller’s voice stars in Disney’s Academy-Award winning animated feature, BIG HERO 6. You may recognize his non-animated face and body from his role in 2014’s surprise indie hit TRANSFORMERS 4, or Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series SILICON VALLEY, which airs its’ third season on April 24th.  His podcast "Cashing in with T.J. Miller" on nerdist.com is listened to by 12 and ½ people, and he is a nationally touring standup, criss crossing the country listening to Kris Kross (he's also done shows in the U.K. and Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico did not go well)).

He has been performing his absurdist observational standup act for over 10 years, and has never gone to the bathroom in his pants on stage.  His hour long Comedy Central stand-up special T.J. MILLER: NO REAL REASON and hip-hop/pop/folk music album "THE EXTENDED PLAY E.P.," an E.P. with 41 tracks, and the ILLEGAL ART REMIXTAPE are all available now.  He hosted Comedy Central’s MASH-UP, a mashup of standup, sketches and visualizations, and has appeared on CHELSEA LATELY more than most women his height. He got his start touring with Second City in Chicago and improvising with Annoyance Theater, iO, and managers at electronics stores asking why he is late and smells like gin.

Miller has been in a number of major studio films including CLOVERFIELD, SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, OUR IDIOT BROTHER, YOGI BEAR 3D (Ranger Jones, his greatest role to date), UNSTOPPABLE, and GET HIM TO THE GREEK.  He has appeared on television in THE LEAGUE, CARPOOLERS, GOODWIN GAMES, HAPPY ENDINGS and other canceled programs.  Miller also talks like an old drag queen after a hard night of chain smoking, and thus voiced the character ‘Tuffnut’ in the Oscar nominated animated film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2.  He voices Robbie from GRAVITY FALLS on Disney and Tuffnut in the Netflix HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON TV series, and GORBURGER, a very strange show you just have to google to understand. His most recent film, DEADPOOL, opens in theaters on February 12th. He currently resides in Hollywood, California, where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world. He is a comedian.

X-Ambassadors w/Special Guests Seinabo Sey & Savoir Adore - Friday, April 1

X Ambassadors Savior Adore Seinabo Sey


Rock band X Ambassadors are set to take the stage on Friday, Apr. 1, at 9 p.m. in the University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences auditorium. X Ambassadors will be accompanied by special guests Seinabo Sey and Savoir Adore.

UW student tickets will be available Monday, Feb. 15 for free with valid UW student ID. Students must pick up tickets at the Wyoming Union information desk or the Fine Arts box office.

Public tickets will available Monday, Feb. 22 for $10 at the Wyoming Union information desk, Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts box office or by visiting www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

This event will be the first presented as the newly branded program board, 7220 Entertainment, which is a conglomerate of the four current program boards that make up the Campus Activities Center (Concerts and Convocations, Friday Night Fever, and Student Activities Council, and Visual & Cultural Arts).

For X Ambassadors, an unshakable sense of brotherhood has long shaped the sound and spirit of the band. Growing up in small-town upstate New York, front man Sam Harris, his brother Casey, and childhood friend Noah Feldshuh bonded over an obsessive love for punk, rock & roll, soul, and hip-hop that defied the conventions of their peer group. X Ambassadors’ commitment reflects an unfailing belief in the unifying power of music. Noting that the band’s small-town beginnings infinitely inform their output. The band has toured with prominent groups including Imagine Dragons, Jimmy Eat World, and Panic! At The Disco. For more information on X Ambassadors, visit www.xambassadors.com, like the band on Facebook or follow them on Twitter and Instagram @xambassadors.
