The Neon Trees will come to SLCC campus on election night as the headlining act of a Rock the Vote (R.T.V.) event. It promises to be an evening charged with the power of change and lively entertainment from the upstart rockers of nearby Provo, Utah.
With their newly released album of national acclaim, ‘Habits’ climbing the charts in several categories, and a leaked mash-up of Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’, the Neon Trees promise to be a fun show.
“They’re funky and different, and they’re really excited to perform at SLCC,” Kade Smith, the event organizer said.
The Neon Trees lead man Tyler Glenn described their music in a recent interview as “post-punk soul.” The band has the versatility and talent to play their music in its usual upbeat emotional tempos, or soften things into a melodic acoustic set. Whatever way they engage, the Neon Trees are sure to impress.
Whether you’re a fan already or not you could win the chance to meet them. SLCC’s Student Life organization will be giving away a small number of “meet and greet” passes for some face time with the band at the show.
With it’s bold declarative motto, ‘Building political power for young people’, Rock the Vote has been aiding in the registration of young voters for two decades. This coming election marks the organization’s 20th anniversary.
