Hartwick Welcomes Rock Band Third Eye Blind November 17

November 5, 2010

The Hartwick Campus Activities Board will present alternative rock band Third Eye Blind at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, November 17 in Lambros Arena on the Hartwick College campus.

Tickets are $15 for Hartwick students; $20 for Hartwick faculty, staff, and alumni; and $25 for the general public. They will be available to students on October 4 - and the public starting Friday, October 8 - exclusively through www.hartwicktickets.com.

Since 1997, San Francisco's Third Eye Blind has recorded three best-selling albums and assembled one career retrospective. The band released "Ursa Major," their first studio collection in five years, in autumn 2009. Third Eye Blind has recorded many chart topping hits, including "Semi- Charmed Life," "How's It Gonna Be," "Jumper" and "Never Let You Go"

Led by Stephan Jenkins, Third Eye Blind won wide success during a tumultuous group of years when the major-label recording industry was finally losing its grip on an enterprise that for decades it had dominated with steely efficiency. The band, however, has experienced no comparable loss. Instead, it has gained artistic clarification-and, surprisingly, a fan base larger than ever.

Participation in the older, untouchable realm of nervous star-making could color a band's identity. In the case of 3EB, it often blurred the perception of their brilliant musical creations. In recent years, those creations have recast the band among a current generation of fans.
