UNWED SAILOR in the Pike Room

FRIDAY JUNE 27, 2008
doors at 8pm
tickets: $10 (buy tickets)


Born in Seattle in 1998 at the tender age of intent, UNWED SAILOR is helmed by Oklahoma-born songwriter Johnathon Ford. The basis for the instrumental project came into being while Ford was still writing with Seattle luminaries Roadside Monument. Pulling toward a bass guitar-oriented sound, the songs he had begun to craft did not fully feel right for Roadside Monument, thus the unbeknownst predestined forming of UNWED SAILOR. Not aiming for UNWED SAILOR to fall into the regular confines of a typical band, Ford's ever-evolving cast and crew has been tirelessly composed over the years of good friends and company. With SYBRIS: Chicago's Sybris is a quartet of powerful grace, the sound of a battalion of Valkyries astride winged horses bound for Valhalla. Propelled by singer Angela Mullenhour's sugar-coated knife-edge voice, a unique entity in itself, brimming with shattering potential and weighted with its own world-weariness; elegant, bruised, but never defeated. ALLAN JAMES AND THE COLD WAVE opens. Doors at 8pm. $10 all ages.
