Seattle's hippest orchestra is appearing at the Moore this Saturday, taking on yet another band familiar to each and every one of us. Says SW's Bryden McGrath:
Arcade Fire, the Beach Boys, and David Bowie? Check, check, and check. After three critically acclaimed tribute shows, volunteer community orchestra SRO is setting its sights on Radiohead and two of the finest albums ever made: 1995's The Bends and 1997's OK Computer. With guests ranging from Rachel Flotard of Visqueen and John Van Deusen of the Lonely Forest, SRO announced via their Facebook page that Posies frontman Jon Auer will appear with the message "Three words: Fake. Plastic. Trees." Throw in other classics like "Street Spirit (Fade Out)," "Paranoid Android," and "Karma Police," and you've got yourself a show full of symphonic excitement that won't leave you high and dry.
Jim Antonio of the Purrs, Joshua Morrison, Tom Beecham of the Raggedy Anns, Kaylee Cole, Michele Khazak, and Noah Gundersen of the Courage will all also be performing with the orchestra. It's an all-ages show, it starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are $18--unless you want to go for free.In which case, we're giving away a pair of tickets--e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org by tonight at 5 p.m. You'll be entered in a drawing to win the tickets, and the winner will be notified by tonight.
