Ten Miles Wide, Broken Cell, Black Bell

June 15, 2017 - 9:00pm

On Thursday, June 15, the Community Center for the Performing Arts, Phoenix Productions and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome Ten Miles Wide to the WOW Hall along with Eugene's Broken Cell and Black Bell.

Hailing from a city with a storied history of groundbreaking music, Ten Miles Wide strives to direct the Seattle rock sound into uncharted territory.  Armed with an upbringing of groundbreaking music, the band is brimming with a passion to help resuscitate and advance the traditions brought on by the city's musical heroes. The goal is to genuinely and naturally recreate that magic and push it forward, all while staying unique and avoiding direct imitation.

Galvanized by a decade's worth of experiences in their hometown music scene since their late teens, the band members have seen the excitement grow since they began as "The Mothership" in 2011.  Due to changes and personnel in late 2014, a re-brand was imminent, and the band named themselves after The Mothership’s debut album in order to maintain connection with their previous work.

Ten Miles Wide officially began in 2015 as a trio (John Beckman - vocals & guitars, Ryan Thornes - bass, Will Andrews - drums).  Longtime friend Jake Carden (guitars) completed the lineup in 2016.  The band released their debut album The Gross (with songs produced by Jack Endino and Derek Moree) to a crowd of more than 500 at Neumos in Seattle on July 16, 2016.

You can see Ten Miles Wide on tour over the West Coast this summer and at KISW Pain In The Grass 2017 at White River Amphitheatre.   

Broken Cell has an EP released in 2008 called Tsunami, and since has been working on new, evolved material.  Come experience the dynamic sound from groovy to heavy to melodic to emotional, a band that enjoys what they do, write about actual life, and most definitely love to hang with new friends!

Band members are Ryan Lane on guitar, Josh Kile on bass, Travis Fox on drums and Joel Ryan on vocals.

An emotionally charged live performance makes Black Bell one of Eugene’s many risings stars. Combining classic, modern and progressive influences with pop sensibilities and a brutal guitar attack, Black Bell sets itself apart as a musical force to be reckoned with.

Band members Ash Biggs (vocals/ guitars), Jared Tillford (keyboards/ vocals), Mike Loudenback (lead guitar) and Jared Knowland (drums) employ a high-octane stage show that stretches across dynamic barriers like burning bridges.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of show.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 9:00.
