Sneak Peek: WUSC Presents Bearstronaut

Fundraising week is coming to a close, and we’re ready to go out with a bang! Be sure to come out for WUSC’s spring fundraising concert at Foxfield Bar and Grille Thursday night. Doors are at 8 pm, and we’re super stoked to be featuring Bearstronaut, an electro-pop group from Boston, MA whose smooth, tropical sound is sure to get you dancing. Their most recent EP, “Paradice,” topped our charts soon after its release, and the group is well known for giving energetic live performances.

Along with Bearstronaut, Art Contest, a fantastic math-rock trio from Clemson, SC, is heading down for the show. Their recent debut album, Math Major, has been one of my favorite albums of the year. I’ve seen these guys live a couple of times, and trust me, you don’t want to miss them. Their music is colorful and disjointed with super clear vocals and driving rhythms, and they’re definitely on my list of up-and-coming South Carolina bands to watch.

We also have some solid local groups to start the show. Ningas Tongas, a dynamic noise – rock quartet will be kicking things off, followed by Hey Lightning, an alternative indie-rock group with an experimental touch.

If you haven’t had a chance to show your support for WUSC, you can always donate by calling into the station at 803-576-9872 or by donating online.

Foxfield Bar and Grille is located at 406 Howard Street, Columbia, SC 29205. Doors at 8 pm, $5 cover. Check out the Facebook event here for more information.
