Before we get to the beef of this event and give you the background of the "2 Friends," I gotta invite you to the Alerus Center parking lot this afternoon. I'll be set up tailgating with Savannah at 1PM. And I might just happen to have a few pairs of free tickets for tonight's show. Come and get em. If you ask nicely, they're yours. While supplies last of course. Anyway, the following info come from the Alerus Center event page...
This show will be held in the arena of Alerus Center due to the impending weather.
Spectra and UND Student Government will host DJ/producer group, Two Friends, at Alerus Center on Friday, May 3. This event will be open to the public.
Tickets are on sale now and available at the Alerus Center Box Office or Ticketmaster.com.
Matt Halper and Eli Sones, the young masterminds behind Two Friends, have quickly revamped from high school bedroom producers to one of the most promising dance music duos. Known for their viral remixes of “Trap Queen”, “I Miss You” and “Mr. Brightside”, as well as their latest original offerings Just A Kid, Emily, and Out of Love, the two have in unprecedented time mastered a wide range of genres from pop-leaning to dance-driven records.
Kicking off their musical journey in their senior year of high school (after being best friends since seventh grade), the boys honed their skills through remixing, taking on the likes of Lana Del Rey, Alesso, and Tori Kelly to name but a few. Two Friends were quick to prove their versatile songwriting and production, drawing upon a wide variety of live instrumentation to create a truly multi-faceted sound with every release. They swiftly exceeded their influence beyond the online sphere, attracting the spotlight on stage and radio.
With support now coming from the likes of Tiesto, The Chainsmokers, Martin Garrix, and many more, and with a whole host of original releases, Matt and Eli undoubtedly look set to dominate this year and beyond.
