PULLMAN, Wash. — Acoustic guitarist Howie Day will perform at Washington State University at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18 at the Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum.
Admission is $12 for all WSU and University of Idaho students and $20 for the general public. Tickets are available at Beasley Coliseum, www.ticketswest.com and at the west entrance of the Compton Union Building Monday-Friday from noon-2 p.m. prior to the event.
The 22-year-old singer songwriter will be in the middle of his 30-city tour when he makes his appearance in Pullman. Singing about themes such as love and loss has helped Day to develop a strong underground following. His ability to use live loop-sampling and delay pedals has made him a virtual one-man band. He has toured with such acts as Sheryl Crow, Sting and Tori Amos.
His latest album, “Stop All The World Now,” is his first full-length album with Epic Records. It will be in record stores Oct. 7. The first single, “Perfect Time of Day,” is already receiving radio air time, and the video can be seen on MTV2. The album is the follow-up to his 2001 “Australia.” Day recently won two Boston Music Awards for “Debut Album of the Year” and “Outstanding Male Vocalist.”
Event sponsors are Beasley Coliseum and the ASWSU Student Entertainment Board, a student-funded organization on the WSU campus that specializes in bringing the best entertainment, films, lectures and open-mic coffeehouses to the region.
