Indie Rock Band Typhoon with Wild Ones and Youth to Entertain at UW
November 2, 2011 — American indie rock band Typhoon, along with supporting bands Wild Ones and Youth, will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9, in the University of Wyoming Union Ballroom.
Typhoon consists of a rotating band of musicians and typically performs with 10-14 players on stage. With music consisting of convoluted arrangements and meticulous orchestration, Typhoon performs a variety of styles inspired by various music genres.
"With such a large number of musicians and instruments, it's no surprise that they can create a massive sound, but their playing reflects restraint and patience as well," says National Public Radio's Alisa Ali. "The songs often start slowly and quietly before gradually building into a swell of emotion."
They recently performed on the Late Show with David Letterman and on NPR, and also at various music festivals such as SXSW, Newport Folk and Lollapalooza. To listen to some of Typhoon's songs visit www.daytrotter.com/typhoon.
This event is sponsored by the Student Activities Council. Individuals needing assistance to attend the concert can call (307)766-6340. For more information, visit www.uwyo.edu/sac.
