Science and music have made a perfect pair ever since Isaac Newton first dropped the mic and discovered gravity. Marvel at lab-crafted rhythms with this GrouponLive deal to see ArcAttack at Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts in Storrs. For $28, you get two tickets for reserved mezzanine seating for Thursday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. (a $56 value, including all fees).
Sparks literally fly as ArcAttack, inventors of the original Singing Tesla Coils, fuse high-tech ingenuity and rhythmic melodies to create an electrifying spectacle. Developed in Austin, Texas, by an audacious crew of properly grounded adventurists, ArcAttack turns two custom tesla coils into synthesizers of lightning, tossing out 12-foot electrical arcs. Flashing LED lights emit the colors of the rainbow as mechanically actuated sticks strike a robotic drum kit. Rock, electronica, indie, and punk music surge as ArcAttack’s six members play live instruments inside the conductive maelstrom stage while the tesla coils buzz like a beehive left in a massage chair. Thunderous applause blends with gasps of amazement as an MC struts through 500,000-volt sparks, searing eye sockets with dazzling showmanship while shaming Benjamin Franklin’s ghost.
