New Politics, Dreamers, The Wrecks
March 3 • 6:30 pm• $5 – $30
On Saturday, March 3, the Community Center for the Performing Arts, Dead Nation Presents and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome New Politics to the WOW Hall along with special guests Dreamers and The Wrecks.
New Politics — consisting of Danish-born, David Boyd [lead vocals, guitar] and Søren Hansen [bass, guitar, keys, vocals], as well as NY native Louis Vecchio [drums] — exploded onto the scene with their smash hit “Harlem” earning over 31 million Spotify streams and reaching the top five on alternative radio. The band has since released three studio albums featuring a slew of hit singles, including “Everywhere I Go” and “Tonight You’re Perfect”, securing major syncs in Frozen, America’s Got Talent, ESPN, Bud Light, Doritos, and more. New Politics have made the full late night circuit, performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and CONAN, and played to sold out crowds around the world, touring with everyone from Pink and Fall Out Boy to Paramore, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. Lost In Translation, the fourth studio album by New Politics, was released on October 6. Five singles were released prior to the album’s release, along with a music video for “One Of Us”. The focus of the new album is on life after touring and growing more successful, as well as describing the task of reinventing themselves through the tight bonds that the band developed over the years.
Los Angeles’ Dreamers is an alt pop trio comprised of Nick Wold (vocals/guitar), Nelson (bass/vocals) and Jacob Wick (drums). Their debut, This Album Does Not Exist, toys with themes of existence and existentialism.
Los Angeles-based indie rock band The Wrecks is a 5-piece that blends undeniably catchy choruses with lyrics and vocals that have an underlying substance and a certain youthful quirk.
