The High Council NYE CD Release with Marshall Law and Tryin’

December 31, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - January 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

$15 – $20

This New Years Eve join The High Council and Marshall Law for a psychedelic musical jam band blow out like no other. Pacific Northwest jam scene mainstays, The High Council will release their second LP, a two-disk album entitled “Chasing The Sun”with a New Years Eve album release party at the new Substation Annex in Ballard. Joining the bill are local favorites: Marshall Law Band, and Tryin.

The product of over a years work, “Chasing The Sun” stretches the boundaries and perceptions of what a jam band studio album can be. Great effort was taken to capture and reproduce the elusive energy and feel of the live performance, while also maintaining the highest production standards. The album runs the gamut from concise and thoughtful songwriting, to mind-bending improvised jams, tied together with a sound that flows seamlessly between psychedelic rock, funk, blues and americana. They have a Southeast Asian tour planned in February in support of the LP, as well as several regional shows.

The High Council members are lead guitarist Zeke Wakefield, rhythm guitarist Ryan Philippart, bass guitarist Reign King, keyboardist Zack Olson, drummer Davy Nefos and percussionist Jeff Pang.

Joining the bill as main support; Marshall Law Band is a high-energy 6-piece Hip-hop and Funk group that has been tearing up stages across the northwest. MC Marshall Hugh’s conscious and inventive lyricism combined with their band of unusual and severely talented musicians, creates a unique and powerful sound. They released their debut EP “Nostos: A Hero’s Journey” on November 21st, 2018.

Also making a special guest appearance is Tryin’, a groovy, Seattle-based live electronic trio that blends elements of trance fusion and disco. They create a unique sonic canvas during every performance. They are bound to blow your mind.

Doors open at 8:00 p.m. and music starts at 9:00 p.m.
Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets.

This New Years Eve, this is the place to be. Don’t miss out.
