Astronauts, etc., the brainchild of Berkeley’s Anthony Ferraro, will be debuting as a full band this Monday, October 22nd at The Independent. The headliner of the night is another electro-pop group, Ultraista. Ultraista is led by Nigel Godrich, who is best known for his work in the studio with Radiohead. It should be a night filled with dreamy pop stylings and, luckily for you, we have three pairs of tickets to give away. All you have to do is email contest
