New Show Announcement!

SCOPE Productions and RiverFest have the pleasure of announcing that
MATT NATHANSON will be performing an acoustic set at the IMU Ballroom,
on Sunday, April 25th at 7:30 PM. This show will be the closing show
of RiverFest, a 5-day concert and arts festival held April 21-25.

After a few years of honing his live show -- both headlining and
opening for artists such as Tori Amos, John Mayer, Pink, Guster and
OAR -- Nathanson took a detour into the major label ranks for the
ambitious Beneath These Fireworks in 2003 yielding the hits “Bent” and
“Curve of the Earth”. His 6th album Some Mad Hope released in August
of 2007 has produced the platinum selling single “Come On Get Higher”
and hits “Still” and “Car Crash”. Some Mad Hope peaked on the
Billboard 200 at #60, and peaked at #3 on the Top Independent Albums.

In the past two years alone, Nathanson has played over 250 live shows,
selling out rooms across the country. He performed on the Late Show
with David Letterman and Ellen in 2009. Nathanson’s acoustic sound and
poetic lyrics created his huge grassroots following and dedicated fan

Tickets for the concert go on sale at 10:00 AM on Friday, March 5th
and can be purchased at University of Iowa Box Office, located in the
IMU, and all other Ticketmaster locations. Tickets will be $18.50 for
students and $24.50 for the general public. This is a general
admission seated show.
