Full Photo Set (15 photos)

As part of elZOO, a combined music and art show held at the El Mocambo, the bands The Harold Wartooth, The Isosceles Project and Zuku were scheduled to be on stage. I was there partly to photograph, but also to participate in the art portion of the evening with five of my photos printed out on canvas and hung on the wall. It was truly a great experience for me to have some of my photos shown at the El Mocambo, a venue with an intimidating amount of music history. Unfortunately, my camera broke during the set from The Isosceles Project, so I was unable to get any photos of Zuku.

The Isosceles Project

With no vocals (at the moment, anyway), The Isosceles Project is really a showcase for the awesome talent of guitarist Eric Euler. It's not often that a band can truly mesmerize an audience with all-instrumental tunes, but Euler, in combination with Scott Tessier (bass) and Justin Falzon (drums), pulled it off. The music contained some noticeably technical content, and was played out with insane levels of hair-swooshing rock. Euler says they are looking for a vocalist, but someone that will complement the mood of the music rather than dominate. It all reminds me of a band called Karma To Burn, an all-instrumental rock trio out of West Virginia that pumped out a few great instrumental albums earlier this decade (check out Wild Wonderful Purgatory, if you're interested), but experimented with a vocalist for one album. Comparatively, The Isosceles Project is a little more progressive and technical, emphasized by the fact that they finished the set with a 25-minute number that was apparently a combination of two songs, Doppleganger and Oblivion's Candle. Epic.
