Event Details

SOLD OUT: Join the GRPM for Concerts Under the Stars in the Chaffee Planetarium. Visitors can sit back and experience the wonder of the cosmos and the wonder of music!

This concert will take place on January 18 and will feature experimental synth and post new wave bizarro pop by hi-ker. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments, beer and other beverages will be available for purchase.

Hi-ker is composed of Spencer Gordon, Chris Ryan, and Kohl Sprader, and their newest album titled “Lippe” was self-released on December 1, 2017. In the new album, the band explores a more sample and synth-based sound compared to their previous works. With influences ranging from Talking Heads and Animal Collective to Aphex Twin.

This concert will also feature visuals by Nate Eizenga. Nate is a Grand Rapids native who moonlights as video artist, focusing on accompaniment for live musical performances. By using controllers intended for digital music production to create, mix and manipulate video in real time he crafts a visual experience that toes the line between artistic spontaneity and musical synchronicity. Since his first public show in 2015 Nate has performed for numerous events, including Concerts Under the Stars 2017.

Concerts Under the Stars are sponsored by Rebel Reclaimed and WYCE 88.1 FM Radio.
