TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- Holland Hopson and Justin Peake will bring some folk and electronic dance music to the Sonic Frontiers concert series tonight at the Bama Theatre.

The performance takes place at 7:30 p.m. in the Bama Theatre's Greensboro Room in downtown Tuscaloosa.

A recent Tuscaloosa transplant, Hopson fuses traditional Appalachian banjo with live electronics to grow roots music for the 21st century.

Tuscaloosa native and New Orleans-based musician/composer Justin Peake channels a DJ sensibility to craft edgy, dance-influenced music for percussion and electronics.

All Sonic Frontiers events are free and open to the public. The events are sponsored by UA's New College, College of Arts and Sciences, School of Music and Creative Campus.
