Student-Produced Concert Brings Hot-Rising Band SHAED to Amphitheater
SHAED, a Washington, D.C.-based alt-rock-pop trio comprised of powerhouse vocalist Chelsea Lea and multi-instrumentalist twins Max and Spencer Ernst take Converse College’s Rainey Amphitheater stage May 13 in an entirely student-produced rock show.
“Lee’s vocals weave divinely through the Ernst twins’ pop-sensible production that can make anyone move,” says Sputnikmusic.com. “Their debut single, ‘Just Wanna See,’ is a genre-bending slow jam that has received international praise and favorable comparisons to bands like Florence + the Machine, Sia, Justin Timberlake, and Sylvan Esso.”
SHAED marks the third student-promoted concert in Converse’s two-year-old Music Business & Technology Certificate program. John Jeter, a former co-owner for The Handlebar, Greenville’s now-shuttered venue, helped jumpstart the curriculum at the all-women’s college.
The all-ages concert is open to the public. For SHAED, General Admission tickets are $10 advance, $15 Day of Show for non-students, and $5 for students. For more information, contact Jeter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
