We’re SO EXCITED to finally announce UKSAB’s first-ever off-campus show! Royal Teeth with Wild Party will perform April 18 at Cosmic Charlie’s! Tickets are free for students and $5 for general public (available at the door). Doors will open at 7pm, and the show will start at 8pm. Cosmic Charlie’s will be 18+ for the show.
Royal Teeth describe themselves as a band that “makes music for adventures.” They’re a indie-dance-pop sextet that put on more than a show - their performances are experiences complete with balloons and confetti canons. Their summer anthem “Wild” is just plain fun, throwing out lyrics that, well, make us feel “young and wild.” They’ve got a Walk the Moon/Grouplove vibe that we can’t get enough of. We’ve got their EP, “Act Naturally”, on repeat and we’re super excited for their full-length album this year!
Check out their video for “Wild” below and get a FREE download of the song here!
Wild Party describe their music as “feel-good, catchy pop songs with relatable themes and honest lyrics.” We couldn’t have said it any better. The San Antonio-based “indie power-pop” foursome are set to release their first official EP, “All Nighter”, this May, and we’re itchin’ to hear it! If the EP has any of the Young the Giant/Two Door Cinema Club feel we’re lovin’ in “When I Get Older”, it’s sure to be a hit.

Free Coffee. Steve Moakler. Spring Weather. It’s basically the best thing ever.
Nashville-native Steve Moakler is a voice you don’t forget. If anyone can tell a story through a song that you’ll think about long after you’ve heard it, it’s Moakler. His sweet stories are matched by melodies that keep you smiling, and his pure voice pulls it all together to create songs that just plain feel good. Throw in a guitar and occasional tambourine, and you’ve got a song you’ll wanna play over and over again.
Check out Moakler’s “Wide Open” from his one-shot acoustic sessions above! He’ll be playing the final Coffee House series of the semester Wednesday, March 27 at 5 p.m. on Ovid’s Patio. A limited number of free tall handcrafted Starbucks beverages will be given to attendees, so get there early for a good view and free Starbucks!
Castillo created SandStory after tracks through a split bag of sand piqued his creative interests. Through manipulating sand on a light table, the artists began to tell detailed, meaningful tales with sand and light alone. Castillo’s sand animation landed him a spot on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”, where he finished in 5th place. His stint on the show gained his artwork notoriety around the globe, and he has since performed for thousands of people in over 18 countries.
Castillo will be sharing his SandStory in Memorial Hall on Monday, March 25 at 7 p.m. See you there!
