El Ten Eleven brings looping guitars and rhythms to the Black Cat Saturday.
August 4, 2011 - A martial arts trilogy at Wolf Trap and El Ten Eleven at the Black Cat.
(Aug. 5) Tan Dun: The Legend Continues
If you're hungry for some martial arts and know a special classical music lover, Wolf Trap in Vienna may have the perfect crossover event for your Friday night. The Martial Arts Trilogy features the scores of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; The Banquet and Hero; all by Chinese composer Tan Dun. The three concertos are performed alongside screens displaying fight scenes from the films. The first is played on cello, the second is violin and the show closes out with piano.
(Aug. 6) El Ten Eleven play El Black Cat
The two members of El Ten Eleven bring a full rock band's worth of sounds to the Black Cat in Northwest Washington Saturday night. The band uses looping pedal effects to lay soaring guitars and rhythms over each other. The guitarist half of the band beefs up the multitasking with a double-neck guitar, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Music: "3 Plus 4" by El Ten Eleven
