Promise to Myself INDIE POP-ROCK
Thursday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m.
Watch at https://youtube.com/asukerr

Promise To Myself is an alternative pop-rock band from Phoenix, Ariz. Founded by Zack Bruge (rhythm guitar/backing vocals) and Brad Stockton (lead guitar) after they met in high school guitar class, they decided to start a band since they had a common B in their names. They needed a singer, but Karl Nagy (lead vocals/bass) didn’t have a B in his name...until he said his middle name was Brandon. When they needed a drummer, in walked Tony Galvan (drums, obviously) and the rest is history. Playing on the Vans Warped Tour and at NAMM 2020 brought attention to the band. PTM recently signed with Perry Music Group and The Orchard (Sony) for distribution of their music worldwide. The band brings a fun and creative energy to the stage that will surely keep you guessing what might happen next!

Join us as the band takes over the Beams stream with a very special acoustic set they've created just for us! Join us and be sure to send in your positive words and questions for the guys.

ASU Kerr is a historic Valley venue that is part of ASU Cultural Affairs. Our small staff and facility strive to present a diverse mix of live music, storytelling and theater in order to share the unique perspectives of local, national and international artists. World music, indie folk, jazz, soul, baroque pop and more grace our stage each season. We currently produce free live streamed events to give greater access to music and storytelling programs, providing performance opportunities for artists and maintaining the connection between ASU Kerr, audiences, the arts and one another.

We are shouldering unprecedented costs in creating paid performance opportunities for artists that are free to the public during the venue's temporary hiatus. As a self-sustaining venue, our only income streams are ticket sales, rental bookings, concessions and the contributions of donors.

Consider helping sustain ASU Kerr with a donation to the venue. We are doing our best to bring the joy of music and the arts to you in new ways, and hope those able to financially support the venue's mission of Connecting Communities™ will do so. Your help is vital in ensuring that the shows will go on--online for now--and in person once it is safe for us to gather again.
