If you’re looking for something to do this Saturday night, look no further. If you already have plans, cancel them. Trentalange, the Seattle-based singer, artist, and multi-instrumentalist is coming to town and will be performing at The Red and The Black. Formerly a member of the bands Crooked Fingers and Spyglass, her music can be described as “bridging the gap between Portishead’s Dummy in 1995 and a post-meltdown sound of the future”. I wouldn’t lie to you – she’s amazing.
To promote her latest album Photo Album of Complex Relationships, Trentalange kicked off her US fall tour in October with a collective show and auction to highlight paintings from artists across the country in an effort to raise money and awareness for local Seattle non-profit, Powerful Voices. The video backdrop of the tour will showcase twelve fine artists across the country. Each artist will interpret one song visually, to a total of twelve songs. All artwork involved in the visual backdrop of the show will be put up for auction at the end of the tour and half of the proceeds of each painting will be donated to Powerful Voices.
If you love the DC concert scene as much as I do, this is a show you won’t want to miss. Here are the details:
Saturday, November 10th, 8:00PM
The Red and The Black
1212 H Street NE, Washington, DC 20002
