On Friday, February 5th at 7:00 p.m., the University of Alaska Southeast is hosting an Alaska Airlines Student Concert Series event, Pamyua. The concert is FREE and open to the public. The concert will be set up as a drive-in at the University’s main parking lot. KTOO will broadcast the performance live for all who are able to tune in as well.
Brought to you by UAS Student Activities Board, the Gold Town Nickelodeon Theater, KTOO, and Alaska Airlines.
A limited number of parking spaces are available, and tickets will become available on Friday, January 29. One ticket = one vehicle. Tickets are free and available to the whole Juneau community. Actively enrolled UAS students will have early access to tickets. Tickets are expected to go quickly.
Those who find themselves with an extra ticket (for example, if a person and their housemate both obtained one), are asked to email email@example.com ASAP so that it can be re-distributed.
If you did not get a ticket, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on a waitlist. Please provide your name, car type, # of passengers, and phone number in your email. If a ticket becomes available, we will email you. If a ticket becomes available within 48 hours of the show, we will call AND text you. Please note: being added to the waitlist does not guarantee a ticket.
- If you leave once the show starts, there is no guaranteeing your space should you return.
- You may not save spaces for yourself or anyone else. You will be directed to a parking spot by a staff member. Please stay in your car.
- Parking is based on vehicle height, with shorter cars in front, taller ones in back. If you have a roof rack or storage pod, we have to put you towards the back. We will work very hard to get you the best possible view of the stage and/or the screen for your entertainment pleasure.
- We are enforcing social distancing rules. We ask that you only have immediate family members or members of the same household/social bubble in each vehicle and Please do not exit your vehicle at any time during the show, except in an emergency. We have a porta-potty available for that kind of emergency. You may not enter or use any of the UAS facilities.
- Your vehicle must have a working FM radio to hear the show. If it doesn't, you'll need to bring something that picks up a radio signal (perhaps a phone app?).
- Try to not keep your car idling throughout the show. You may start your car periodically for a few minutes as needed, but we ask that you keep the engine off during the show. We make no guarantees of roadside help.
- The only public bathroom on site is a public-use porta-potty located in the lot. You may not use the Universities facilities. The University buildings are closed to the public.
- If you are seen with any of these items, you'll be asked to leave: pets, grills, laser pointers, fireworks, firearms or other weapons, drugs, and alcohol.
- Please do not litter.
- You may also want to bring a flashlight, blankets, extra jackets, Rain-X and/or Fog-X for your windshield (or a squeegee if you steam it up!), snacks and non-alcoholic drinks. The show is 75-90 minutes long.
- Please be mindful and courteous of your neighbors.
Pamyua showcases Inuit culture through music and dance performance. The show is a platform to share indigenous knowledge and history. Their style derives from traditional melodies reinterpreted with contemporary vocalization and instrumentation. Often described as “Inuit Soul Music,” Pamyua has discovered their own genre.
The members are proud to represent Indigenous culture. The group believes unity is possible through music and dance, and the members interpret Inuit traditions masterfully with joy and sincerity. The response to this message is tremendous as the group is a symbol of pride for Alaska’s indigenous people and to all who see them perform.
About the Alaska Airlines Concert Series at UAS
The Alaska Airlines Student Concert Series at UAS is a collection of events hosted by the Student Activities Board (SAB). Designed to engage the Juneau community in events and activities at UAS, the series features a high level of student-driven programming and leadership. Community engagement is a direct part of the UAS mission, and indirectly impacts enrollment and the ability of UAS to deliver high-quality, high-impact programs. Alaska Airlines supports the series by providing travel vouchers for artists and educators.
Due to Covid-19, this is the only Alaska Airlines Student Concert Series event this year. Past shows have included a drag show, a murder mystery, live bands, spoken word performances, a balloon artist, and hypnotism.
