[reminder] Julian Plenti @ Chop Suey (11-16-2009)

Julian Plenti Is... Playing Seattle

For those of you unfamiliar with Julian Plenti, it's the moniker that Paul Banks (of Interpol) has been using for his solo material. His debut album Julian Plenti is... Skyscraper is one of my top albums of 2009. There's something about Banks' cryptic lyrics and otherworldly grooves that just works so well for me.

Julian Plenti will be playing a show later this month (November 16) in the very intimate Chop Suey. I've not read many reviews for his solo shows, but I have a strong hunch that this concert is going to be one of those really cool experiences. What I do know is that he's backed onstage with a bassist, guitarist, cellist, violinist, and a drummer. Give him credit for experimentation!

Tickets are still available at the box office or online at Ticketweb. Tickets are only $16 and include stage support from I'm With You. Doors open at 8pm - don't miss it. Also, check out these instrumental artistic music videos from Plenti himself.
