Music Scene: Superchick
Superchick is expecting some change. Not money, no, the Christian pop/rock band means transformation.
“We want your life to be different when you walk of the show; I want my life to be different as well,” said Matt Dally, Superchick’s bassist, on the band’s website. “Come and see God transform us all to be closer to Him. Oh and it’s going to rock your face off too!”
Superchick brings its Reinvention Tour to Grand Junction with a concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, at the Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St.
Managest, Me in Motion and Bread of Stone are touring with Superchick performing at schools, churches, community centers and amphitheaters across the country. The whirlwind tour began Sept. 22 in New Mexico and goes through November.
Superchick has had five songs hit No. 1 on music charts, with “Stand in the Rain” in the No. 1 spot for nine weeks on R&R Christian Hit Radio chart in 2006–07.
The Superchick Reinvention Tour website bio notes that Superchick’s first four albums have combined for 700,000 copies sold, more than 70 film, television and video game song placements.
The Grammy-nominated band released the album “Reinvention” earlier this year. It features three new singles, including “Still Here” and a solo breakout from Dally titled “Let It Roll” along with nine “reinventions” pulled from previous albums in the band’s discography.
Doors to the Grand Junction show will open at 6 p.m. The show is at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $12, and Artist Circle tickets are $20. Tickets are online at http://www.itickets.com.
