Company of Thieves in concert at UW Aug. 22

Chicago band Company of Thieves will perform at the University of Wyoming's annual President's Barbecue Monday, Aug. 22, at 6 p.m.  Free food will be served to all in attendance starting at 5 p.m.

An indie rock band, Company of Thieves has released two albums, "Ordinary Riches" in 2009 and their newest album "Running from a Gamble" this year. "Ordinary Riches" debuted at No. 5 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. The band won the 2007 New York Songwriters Circle contest for its song, "Oscar Wilde."

"Company of Thieves bring in triumphant, catchy music with their own energy and soul, making for a deeply energetic sound that can turn from sweet to intense on a whim," according to a review. "Using a mix of rock and pop delivered with style and soul, propelled by front woman Genevieve Schatz's powerful voice and her band's inventive guitar and drum work."

The band has toured with such groups as Annuals, OK Go and The Hold Steady, and has performed at Lollapalooza, Last Call with Carson Daly and Live from Daryl's House.
