Friday, November 24 Young Elk, Second Sleep, Gazelle(s), The Mighty Missoula at Kelly’s Olympian
A night of captivating music with:
Distant, somber, and often times, crushingly bleak—Young Elk’s songs are painfully deliberate. In fact, everything is done on purpose. The songs, often penned by frontman and guitar player Ezekiel J Rudick, weave a tapestry of complicated stories that delve into the depths of faith, doubt, abuse, death, and divorce.
play a form of intensified post-rock. The music is combination of sprawling guitars, thick, distorted bass loops, and heavy handed drums.
“.. like staring into a sea of stars and metabolizing the eternity staring back at you..periodically dropping beats, which gives the music an off-kilter intensity. Throughout, songs build and ebb, stop and start, losing themselves in chaos and pulling themselves back into restraint. You hear moments of wild aggression and beautiful introspection..” Eugene Weekly
The Mighty Missoula
In a saturated world of instrumental post-rock bands, The Mighty Missoula are keeping things simple as a three-piece. Like their namesake, which triggered cataclysmic flooding of the Pacific Northwest, they produce lush and temperamental streams of soundtrack-esque nostalgia.

Featuring Kyleen King, Adam Shearer, Kevin Jackson & Diane Chaplin

OK Computer is an album that yields infinite creative inspiration, and as such it will be performed in its entirety both nights, but in different ways reflecting the creative choices of the singers and cellists (some pieces instrumental one night and with vocals the other, for example). The album will be contrasted in true Cello Project fashion with a unique assortment of complementary classical music arranged by Cello Project members Diane Chaplin and Kevin Jackson.
The ensemble will be huge, including a full band, an orchestral section of world-class cellists, and winds and brass.
