Up-and-coming S.C. alt-rock quartet Needtobreathe — four spiffy Piedmontonians now based in Charleston aiming to “bridge the gap between college and mainstream rock” — recently celebrated the release of their new album Heat (Lava/Atlantic), a polished follow-up to 2006’s major label debut Daylight.

Lead singer and guitarist Bear Rinehart, brother/guitarist Bryant “Bo” Rinehart, drummer Joe Stillwell, and bassist Seth Bolt bring their shiny modern rock to the CofC campus. Doors open at 7 p.m. and music starts at 8 p.m. No cover.
