Silversun Pickups

Giveaway: Silversun Pickups

Win tickets to Silversun Pickups on Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Catalyst.


Growing out of the Los Angeles club scene, Silversun Pickups has become a staple of modern alternative music. The band got its start back in 2005 and draws easy comparison to iconic alt-rock band Smashing Pumpkins, and ’90s rock band My Bloody Valentine, with its indie-rock anthems and trippy, ethereal grooves. Like its influences, the band moves between catchy pop hooks and darker melodies and tones. The most recent Silversun Pickups offering is 2015’s Better Nature. On Saturday, Oct. 21, the band kicks off a 20-date headlining tour at the Catalyst. Also on the bill: Minus the Bear.

INFO: 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $38/adv, $40/door. 423-1338. WANT TO GO? Go to before 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
