Sydney Sprague INDIE ROCK
Beams: a live online music series
Thursday, June 10 at 7 p.m.
Watch at youtube.com/asukerr
or facebook.com/asukerr/live

Indie rock darling Sydney Sprague returns to the Beams stream, and this time, she’s broadcasting live from the sweet, historic ASU Kerr! She recently signed with Rude Records and her brand new LP “maybe I will see you at the end of the world” is a prescient must-listen, recorded prior to the pandemic and produced by Sam Rosson (Death Cab for Cutie, Pedro the Lion, Mac Miller) at Hall of Justice in Seattle. The record has been garnering insanely positive reviews from the press, landing features from NPR, Refinery29, Uproxx, Alternative Press, Rock Sound and Phoenix New Times. She is making Arizona proud and we cannot wait to chat with and experience music from one of our fastest-rising Beams artists!

ASU Kerr is a historic Valley venue that is part of ASU Cultural Affairs. Our small staff and facility strive to present a diverse mix of live music, storytelling and theater in order to share the unique perspectives of local, national and international artists. World music, indie folk, jazz, soul, baroque pop and more grace our stage each season. We currently produce free live streamed events to give greater access to music and storytelling programs, providing performance opportunities for artists and maintaining the connection between ASU Kerr, audiences, the arts and one another.

We are shouldering unprecedented costs in creating paid performance opportunities for artists that are free to the public during the venue's temporary hiatus. As a self-sustaining venue, our only income streams are ticket sales, rental bookings, concessions and the contributions of donors.

Consider helping sustain ASU Kerr with a donation to the venue. We are doing our best to bring the joy of music and the arts to you in new ways, and hope those able to financially support the venue's mission of Connecting Communities™ will do so. Your help is vital in ensuring that the shows will go on--online for now--and in person once it is safe for us to gather again.
