October 3, 2013 — Denver band Covergeist will bring a free-wheeling, spirited, rock ‘n’ roll experience to the University of Wyoming Studio WYO concert series Thursday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Gardens.
Studio WYO is a concert series created by Associated Student Technological Services. The free concert will feature a performance by Laramie musician Evan Cook, who also plays in the band Shotgun Shogun.
Lead singer Justin Covergeist describes his sound as “The Black Keys, Jet and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club thrown into a blender.”
“Covergeist has lived the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, and is known for his personable and occasionally wild live shows. He has had stints as an actor, interned for Taylor Swift and has made lasting impressions on fans by touring the country,” says Miles Griffith, Studio WYO’s lead student programmer. “Covergeist’s music has ranging influences from a variety of genres -- from the gritty to the soothing. But nothing about his music is clean-cut, as people who have listened to his hauntingly honest lyrics all know.”
Covergeist will release its new album, “One More Night,” this fall on Denver’s Cherry Sound Records. It will be the band’s second effort, after its debut album, “Zombies, Vampires and Taylor Swift, Oh My,” garnered thousands of plays and downloads.
Studio WYO fosters and supports regional music by creating an unforgettable live music experience featuring top-of-the-line audio-visual equipment staffed by professional student technicians.
