The Lyric is welcoming back Ole Miss students and locals from spring break tonight with a concert by indie rock band STRFKR.
The band, which formed in 2007, hails from Portland, Oregon. The band boasts pop songs that make use of synthesizers, guitars, and soft vocals. Anyone who wants music they can still enjoy without knowing the words can find solace in STRFKR and their unique sound.
“People who know and have seen STRFKR are really excited about it,” said Katie Kaczmarz, marketing manager for the Lyric.
For those that have never seen or heard of them, Kacsmarz advises concert-goers to be prepared to “get down.”
“I heard their show is a disco dance party,” she said.
Though the music is upbeat and soothing, the lyrics can directly contradict that. Often the songs touch on death or the apocalypse. Alan Watts, a theological philosopher, has multiple lectures featured in their songs, supporting their lyricism.
STRFKR has released five studio albums so far, their most recent being “Being No One, Going Nowhere” which came out in 2016.
Daniel T joins them on their tour. Daniel T is a DJ from Los Angeles and produces similar dance music that creates a warm welcome for the headliner.
Doors open at 8 p.m. and the show will start at 9 p.m. An extra fee will be charged to those under the age of 21, and minors must be accompanied by an adult 21 or older. Tickets can be found here.
