The show is free to attend and open to the public.
Hailing from sunny Costa Mesa, this five-piece is currently working on their debut EP, which they hope to release later in the year. They recently released their first singles, “Fault” and “In My Head” on YouTube and music sharing service Soundcloud in July 2015. The group employs a familiar sound of alternative pop that will make fans of Band of Horses feel right at home.

09/28/2015 - Monday Movie Madness: ?Avengers: Age of Ultron?

Sat, 2015-09-19 20:00
Where: SURC Theatre
Times: 7 and 9:45 p.m.
Cost: Free for CWU students w/ID, $3 GA
141 min • Action/Adventure/Superhero • Closed captioning available
Directed by Joss Whedon
Twenty years from now, we’ll all look back and point to “The Avengers” as the formula for how to create a superb ensemble superhero flick. Whedon is back to direct the sequel of the 2012 hit featuring Ultron as the new villain, and it’s up to the Avengers to once again assemble to take down Earth’s newest, greatest foe.
Why it’s worth seeing: Anytime a director is able to handle so many characters so eloquently, it’s worth a look. Also, the action is handsomely directed.
For fans of: “The Avengers” (same director) and basically any other Marvel movie post “The Incredible Hulk.”
