Tonight in Music: Enon Chapel, Portland Cello Project, Until This Sunrise and More!Posted by James Reeves
As the summer months come to a close and Seattle begins to gear up for Bumbershoot, there seems to have been a plethora of recent shows that break the hearts of many under 21-ers, such as God Is An Astronaut. (Yes, I wanted to see them too). But nevertheless, here are a couple of all ages shows that should be enough until Bumbershoot.
First up is Enon Chapel at El Corazon. Enon Chapel plays a mix of death metal and hardcore music that should be heavy enough to satisfy even the most dedicated metal fan as the Twin Falls, Idaho group practically exudes brutality. Frontman Jeremy Sandoval’s vocals are deep and guttural and tie in well with the double bass laden drumming of Justin Seech, perfect headbanging music. Joining Enon Chapel on stage are a multitude of other hardcore bands, including Tragedy Awaits Us All, UPAS, Until This Sunrise, and Amish Warfare.
Metal and screaming not your cup of tea? Head on over to The Triple Door for an experience completely unlike anything most nights in Seattle. Enter the Portland Cello Project, also affectionately known as PCP. The Portland Cello Project never plays any show the same way. Their lineup can range from a simple four to six member ensemble, all the way up to a twelve person sonic assault. Featuring over 800 pieces of music, PCP will wow you with sounds that you didn’t even think were possible from a cello. Playing original pieces and covers that range from Beethoven to Kanye West to Pantera, the Portland Cello Project will be sure to leave you speechless. Joining PCP at The Triple Door is American Idolist Scott MacIntyre. So if you’re not heading up to El Corazon, be sure to go to The Triple Door, eat some Pad Thai, and enjoy a unique music experience.
