The Georgia Straight presents Silversun Pickups at Malkin Bowl
Live Nationhas announced that Los Angeles-based alt-rock group Silversun Pickups will perform an all-ages show—with guests School of Seven Bells and Atlas Genius—at Malkin Bowl on Tuesday, September 4, in support of its third studio album, Neck of the Woods.
Silversun Pickups—singer/guitarist/songwriter Brian Aubert, bassist Nikki Monninger, keyboardist Joe Lester, and drummer Christopher Guanlao— emerged with 2005’s Pikul EP and caught wider attention with the following year’s Carnavas. Tracks such as “Panic Switch” and “The Royal We”, from the 2009 release, Swoon, further established the group, earning it a 2009 Grammy for Best New Artist.
The Silversun Pickups show is part of this year’s Concerts in the Park series, which, since 2002, has annually attracted thousands of concert goers to outdoor venues across the lower mainland, including Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park and Deer Lake Park in Burnaby.
Tickets for the show are priced at $35 (plus service charges and fees) and go on sale this Saturday (July 14) at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.
Tickets are also available for purchase at Zulu, Red Cat, and Highlife Records, and at all Ticketmaster Outlets and Rogers Wireless Box Office.twitter.com/vanhappenings.
