Regina Spektor
Texas Performing Arts
November 5th
Bass Concert Hall

     Regina Spektor’s extraordinary voice has guided the way through a prolific catalogue filled with songs of satire, heartache, and novelty - manifested in six critically acclaimed studio albums.  C3 Presents and Texas Performing Arts present the musician on Monday, November 5th, at Bass Concert Hall.  
    Spektor studied classical piano and garnered a loyal live following in New York before self- releasing two albums.  Her breakthrough album Soviet Kitsch was released by Sire Records in 2004, followed by Begin to Hope in 2006.
    Certified gold in the U.S., Begin to Hope included worldwide fan favorites “Fidelity,” “Samson,” “On The Radio” and “Better.” In 2009, Spektor recorded far and in 2010 Live from London, which was laid down at the Hammersmith Apollo Theater during the far tour.  Spektor’s latest offering, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, was released in 2012 and showcases Spektor’s wild imagination, vast vocal range, and mastering of song writing.
    Opening for Spektor will be New York songwriter Only Son. Jack Dishel, the man behind Only Son, has lent his musical talents to many critically-acclaimed performers during his career, having previously performed with Nickel Eye, Stipplicon and The Moldy Peaches.
   Only Son’s latest release Searchlight includes Dishel collaborating with the likes of The Strokes, Of Montreal and Little Joy for an album that showcases his  song writing talent. The album features a duet written and performed with Spektor.
     Tickets are $35.  Doors will open at 7 p.m., with the concert beginning at 8 p.m.
    Bass Concert Hall is located at the corner of East 23rd Street and Robert Dedman Drive and on the University of Texas campus.  Tickets are now on sale now at the Bass Concert Hall Box Office and all Texas Box Office outlets - including most H-E-B stores - by calling (512) 477-6060 or (800) 982-BEVO and online at www.TexasPerformingArts.org.
