Event

Nordo Music: "AWESOME"
"Awesome" reunites once again at Nordo's Culinarium in Pioneer Square for two nights of pre-Thanksgiving musical mischief and performative camaraderie--Tuesday and Wednesday November 21 & 22 at 7pm. Their sold-out 2015 reunion shows at Cafe Nordo featured a setlist comprised mostly of brand new songs, but these shows promise to be a retrospective of band and fan favorites spanning the full catalog, including some rarities and new arrangements of songs from the band's various side projects.

As always at Cafe Nordo, delicious food and drink is available, including the decadent comforts of a made-to-order mac-and-cheese bar paired with exotic toppings and hearty chili. Cafe Nordo is a 21+ venue with a full bar. *Please note that the 7pm show on Wednesday November 22 will be filmed by Nancy Guppy and Seattle Channel.

Tickets are $20 adv./$25 at the door.

About the Band: "Awesome" is a band/art collective featuring Evan Mosher, David Nixon, Kirk Anderson, Basil Harris, Rob Witmer, John Ackermann and John Osebold. The band has produced several evening-length rock-theatre works: Delaware (2005, Re-Bar), noSIGNAL (2006, On the Boards, toured to Oregon and Montana), Here's What Happened (2007, Seattle Children's Theatre & toured to Portland for TBA Fest at PICA), The "Awesome" Cycle (2008, four new shows in four weeks at ACT/Central Heating Lab), and WEST (2010, commissioned by On the Boards, toured to Theatre JUNCTION in Calgary).

In addition to their work in theatre, "Awesome" has shared music bills with notable Northwest bands such as Harvey Danger, The Long Winters, and Presidents of the United States of America, and they once played the Sasquatch main stage at the Gorge Amphitheater. They also created the score for David Russo's Sundance hit, The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle, and also performed two conceptual symphonies by Jose Bold: <symphony> and Nighttime Forest Fire. The Stranger commissioned them to write and perform songs for literary events with authors Jonathan Safran Foer, Neal Pollack, Charles D'Ambrosio, and Miranda July. More recently "Awesome" played songs and exchanged quips on KUOW's Weekday with Katy Sewall, Steve Scher, and their special guest Stephen Tobolowsky. "Awesome" have released seven albums, all of which are available to stream or download at http://www.awesomeinquotes.com.

"If the seven members of "Awesome" got stuck in an elevator with a kitchen timer, a hubcap, and the lint in their pockets, they would probably be able to write a symphony in 15 minutes 20, tops. And it would be wonderful. They are savantly good at setting out catchy, sad, insane little ditties, or dirges, or arena-rock ballads really, whatever you want (did someone say polka?) and putting them onstage, dressed in hilarious premise, delivered with you-can-laugh-if-you-want-to straightness, narrated by displaced voices and aided, in the storytelling, by gorgeous films, or actors in costume, or disappearing geometric patterns of electric tape on the floor. The best music-theater hybrid since Ween didn't collaborate with Bertolt Brecht."  CHRISTOPHER FRIZZELLE, the Stranger

"To borrow from Bill Graham: "Awesome" aren't the best at what they do...they're the only ones that do what they do. It is hard to say exactly what it is that they do, but I can tell you that in their music, there are traces of Paul McCartney, Frank Zappa, and They Might Be Giants. To see them is to be completely awed by what masters and visionaries they are."-- BRIAN J. BARR, Seattle Weekly

"It must be said: these guys are totally nerd-hot. There's a big, bold word for this kind of fun and you know just what it is." BRANGIEN DAVIS, Seattle Times
