This is a rare occasion when the announcement of a funeral is a good thing. It is a night when the event will represent a rebirth rather than death. On, Tuesday November 17th the Seattle Rock Orchestra is deconstructing The Arcade Fire’s iconic album “Funeral” and recomposing it in it’s entirety to be performed by 50 piece orchestra at the Fremont Abbey. Not only is this a great opportunity for the chance to to dip into the classic side of Seattle’s music talent pool, but “Funeral” also lends itself perfectly to the genre with it’s hugely theatrical makeup.
On stage will also be a backing band and a laundry list of guest vocalists including Matt Bishop (Hey Marseilles), Ian Bell (Black Swedes), Jima (the Purrs), Alessandra Rose (The Kindness Kind), Matt Shaw (With Friends Like These), Jasen Samford & Danny Oleson (Exohxo) & Shenandoah Davis.
Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm.
Fremont Abbey – 4272 Fremont Ave N.
Presale tickets can be purchased online on the Fremont Abbey blog for $12 (general) and $10 (students/seniors), or for $15 at the door. Purchasing tickets in advance is recommended as past shows have sold out and tickets have not been available at the door.
