Concert Series to Feature Sleeping at Last on Nov. 13

The Hope College Concert Series will present Sleeping at Last, Denison Witmer and Jeremy Larson on Friday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland.

Sleeping at Last is to headline the night, drawing not only from the group's past successful albums "Ghosts" and "Keep No Score" (featuring the song "Quicksand" as seen on "Grey's Anatomy"), but also from the band's latest full-length album "Storyboards," released in September. "Relevant" magazine has said of the album, "'Storyboards' has depth and layered meaning - proof that the trio from Chicago is less interested in writing catchy music and more concerned with making great art."

Also performing will be Denison Witmer, who is a Philadelphia-based singer, songwriter and musical affiliate of Rosie Thomas and Sufjan Stevens; and Springfield, Mo., artist, Jeremy Larson, now touring with Sleeping at Last.

Tickets cost $10 for the general public and $5 with Hope College I.D., and are on sale at the ticket office in the main lobby of the DeVos Fieldhouse.  The ticket office is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be called at (616) 395-7890.  Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door.

The DeVos Fieldhouse is located at 222 Fairbanks Ave., between Ninth and 11th streets.  The Knickerbocker Theatre is located at 86 E. Eighth St.

The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. the night of the concert.
