ELEL’s catchy hooks, addictive beats and incredible live shows are undeniable. The seven-piece group’s concerts are more comparable to a dance party with some insanely talented musicians. They have several tour dates this summer but they’re playing the Frist Center this Friday.
The Frist Center’s summer concert series started on June 30 and ELEL are headlining this week’s edition. It’s an all-ages show from 6PM to 9PM in the Turner Courtyard. Although the “40 Watt” band always put on a hell of a show, this one will be extra special. Not only will there be music from ELEL but the stage will be surrounded by bright geodes (like the name of their debut album) from artist Beth Reitmeyer.
Zack Hall and Jack Warren will also be on hand. They both have work featured in Pattern Recognition, an exhibition of art and music videos in Middle Tennessee. Hall will let visitors try their hand at working with the software he uses to create music videos and Warren will screen some 16mm films.
Frist Fridays also have food specials and a cash bar at the event. For more information and to view the entire calendar, visit the Frist Center website. Also, be sure to check out ELEL’s debut album, Geode, on iTunes. It’s the perfect album to play loud this summer.
