SLCene Suggests: El Ten Eleven at The Urban Lounge

by on November 12, 2012

EL TEN ELEVEN, THE URBAN LOUNGE, Tuesday, Nov. 13, 9 p.m., $10

It’s funny to see a band described as an “instrumental power duo,” but it’s pretty accurate when it comes to describing SoCal two-piece El Ten Eleven. Guitarist Kristian Dunn and drummer Tim Fogarty craft multi-layered, bombastic songs using a slew of instruments and electronic loops, and the racket delivered by just the two men is impressive to say the least. It’s a bit math-rock, kinda proggy at times, but it’s always mesmerizing and impressive to watch. Hell, just watching Dunn wield a double-neck half-bass/half-guitar, often playing both necks simultaneously with different hands, is worth the price of admission. The band’s latest seven-song set, Transitions, came out earlier this month, and it’s rock-solid.
