Silversun Pickups Tickets
Silversun Pickups TicketsSilversun Pickups was formed by four friends in the year 2000, but they actually arrived on the alternative rock scene with the release of their first studio album, Carnavas, in 2006. The Silversun Pickups sound has never been easy to categorize; it could be either alternative rock or indie rock, and the band's voice has changed over the years. A Silversun Pickups live performance might include tracks from very different eras in the band's history, making for an interesting show with pace changes and a varied sound. The band's current members are Brian Aubert, Christopher Guanlao, Joe Lester and Nikki Monninger. In the past, Jack Kennedy and Elvira Gonzalez have played with Silversun Pickups.
Silversun Pickups Band Formation and NamingBrian Aubert (vocalist and lead guitarist) met Nikki Monninger (bassist), while the two were on the same flight to London from Los Angeles in 1994. Both were on their way to Cambridge to study as part of an exchange program. Monninger was sitting in the seat across the aisle from Aubert, distracting the flight attendant and stealing bottles of alcohol from the drink cart. The two played together and later encountered Jack Kennedy (rhythm guitarist) and Elvira Gonzalez (drummer), completing the original foursome. It has been rumored that Aubert and Gonzalez were a couple and that Kennedy and Monninger were a couple, though the band denies their original name was "A Couple of Couples." The band is on record saying its name is something of a state of mind, and that it originally came from the name of a liquor store near a Los Angeles club where it often played, Silverlake Lounge. It was common for one or more of the band members to go to the liquor store late at night to buy alcohol. The members started referring to these trips to buy booze as making Silversun Pickups, which is how the band got its name.
