Hailed by “Rolling Stone” as “a genre unto herself,” composer and will be performing at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 16.

Hailed by “Rolling Stone” as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six diverse and distinctive albums (from which B-sides & Rarities has been largely culled), performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s “Into The Wild,” and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.

UTPB students can receive discounted tickets of $15 (regularly $22) to Kaki King, Thursday, February 16, 2017. Contact Yvonne Drinkard, [email protected] for ticket codes to order your tickets online or in person.
