THREE ROCK BANDS TO PLAY SRU CONCERT SPONSORED BY WRSK

     SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Three rock bands – The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Elefant and The Morning After Girls – representing three continents will entertain in a public concert set for 9 p.m. Feb. 11 at Slippery Rock University.

      The concert, sponsored by WRSK radio, the campus, student-run radio station, will be staged in the Multi-Purpose Room of the University Union. Tickets, $15 for the general public; $5 for SRU students with ID, are available from the union Information Desk or by calling 724-738-2104. Doors open at 8 p.m.

      The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club originated in San Francisco, but relocated to Los Angeles in 1999. The trio established themselves as rock artist heavies with their record “Take Them On Your Own” and “Howl.” BRMC finished 2005 with 76 live appearances, including two European tours, a U.S. tour and a “The David Letterman Show” appearance.

      Opening the show will be Elefant and The Morning After Girls. Elefant includes lead singer and founder Diego Garcia of Argentina along with drummer Kevin McAdams and guitarist “Mod.” The band unveiled its album “Sunshine Makes me Paranoid” in Argentina and is working to bring its uprising rock revolution to the United States this year.

      The Morning After Girls started playing in Melbourne, Australia, about three years ago and now reside in the city of Sydney.  Its recent release “evolve” has received critical acclaim and its U.S. following continues to grow.
