Wild Western Neolithic Cello Banditry meets Thunder-Twinged Yodeling Elf Rock of the 4th Dimension!!!
Tornado Rider is a one-of-a-kind mystical experience driven by the mammoth power of an electric cello. They sing powerful anthems about falcons, whirlwinds, and pretty girls, which will haunt your brain for weeks. Their delivery of this groundbreaking new style of music is filled with so much energy, it forces you to do a lightning dance! They are fronted by the most animated and original cellist known to man, who yells triumphant melodies as he leaps around the stage dazzling the crowd with his virtuosity. If you ever have the chance to witness Tornado Rider’s magically costumed theatrical parade of showmanship, musicality, athleticism, and humor, you will be transported to another dimension, and you WILL be entertained!!!
This will be the THIRD time notloB has presented Tornado Rider.
Suggested donation $12 at the door; $10 if reservation is made at least 24 hours in advance* and to Unity members; $5 student (with ID) rush (limit 50) and under 18.
