Chevelle – the alternative rock band known for such hits as “The Red,” “Face to the Floor,” “Send the Pain Below,” “I Get It,” “Jars” and “Letter From a Thief” – will perform at Northwest Missouri State University for the Student Activities Council’s spring concert, the student group has announced.
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus will perform as the opening act of the concert, which is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in Bearcat Arena. Doors will open at 7 p.m.
Student tickets are $10 and available at the Student Services Center on the first floor of the Administration Building. Remaining tickets will be available to the general public for $20, starting Wednesday, March 27. At that time, tickets also will be available for purchase via phone by calling 660.562.1212 or online.
Formed in suburban Chicago in 1995, Chevelle currently is composed of brothers Pete and Sam Loeffler and Dean Bernardini. The band has scored 11 “Top 10” rock and alternative singles with more than 4 million albums sold in the U.S. alone since releasing its independent debut album, “Point #1.”
Chevelle’s sixth and latest full-length album “Hats Off To The Bull,” released in 2011, included “Face to the Floor,” which held the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s active rock chart for 13 weeks. The trio closed out 2012 by releasing a collection of hits, titled “Stray Arrows: A Collection of Favorites,” featuring all of its “Top 10” hits with one new song, “Fizgig.” For more information about Chevelle, visit http://www.chevelleinc.com/.
“SAC is extremely excited to bring Chevelle to Northwest for the spring concert,” SAC President Emily Chowdhury said. “It's a rarity that we have such well known artist in town, and you can’t beat the price of the tickets for a concert this close to home.”
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus formed in 2003 in Florida and consists of Ronnie Winter, Joey Westwood, Josh Burke and Randy Winter. Beginning with its self-titled debut release in 2004, the band has released four studio albums with hit singles that include “Your Guardian Angel,” “Pen and Paper” and “Face Down,” which peaked at No. 24 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

The Student Activities Council is a group of Northwest students charged with planning and administering activities for students, who pay an activities fee as part of their tuition costs.
SAC annually plans a spring concert that features a known artist selected from a rotation of genres to appeal to students’ varied tastes. Chowdhury acknowledged SAC initially planned to host a country artist this spring but a major country festival planned for the same weekend hampered SAC’s ability to contract with many popular country acts.
“We didn't want to spend students’ money on an act that didn’t meet our standards for what students expect out of the spring concert, so we chose to switch genres,” Chowdhury said. “Our ultimate goal for the 2014 spring concert is to bring in a big name country artist.”
Chowdhury added, “We decided to choose a rock act because our last couple of concerts have featured mainstream pop, and we wanted to choose something that was very different than the last few concerts SAC has produced.”
