When Particles Collide
February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$18 – $20
“We are a band because Rock ‘n Roll is about singing and playing the truth so that we can all be a little more human, so that we can better understand ourselves through the power of rhythm, melody and verse. WPC believes this art form makes us all feel empowered, inspired, connected and unstoppable. We are a touring band because live music bring people together in real time and in real spaces. Being at a live music event can bring us to tears, make us laugh, unleash the desire to dance and move, but most importantly we tap into our own vulnerability which is at the heart of being human.
“Trained as a jazz drummer and choral vocalist, Chris met Sasha, a self-taught punk rocker and singer-songwriter, in the spring of 2010 when they were both cast in a Bangor, Maine, production of the rock ‘n roll musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. They have been working together ever since to find where disparate influences come together to create melody forward, hard hitting, genre bending rock ‘n roll. When Particles Collide has built a reputation as a must-see band one show at a time touring all over the US and Canada. Under their own record label, Unstoppable Rock Records, they have released eight sets of recordings including three vinyl records (Photoelectric 2014, Ecotone 2016, and Fade To Gold 2018).
“Their songs and live performances are infectious. Sasha and Chris are interested in bending and blending genres and influences to tell stories. Dynamics, rhythmic turn arounds and harmonies are the tools they use to dig deep into a song’s core meaning. They put every ounce of their bodies into their performances and work hard at their crafts both as players and creators of song. Continually humbled by the challenges and rewards of making a life as musicians they are not looking for accolades, but do enjoy a rowdy crowd at a dive bar and an intensely focused audience at an acoustic house concert. And snacks, they love snacks.”
Concert will be LIVE at Cadenza and also Live Streamed on the Cadenza Facebook page.
Tickets are $18 in advance (available here), $20 at the door.
