Concert Reviews

Seraphim Shock in top form at Gothic Theatre over the weekend

SERAPHIM SHOCK
The Siren Project • Lola Black
08.27.10 | Gothic Theatre, Englewood

Used to be you could count on the opening bands at a Seraphim Shock show to be pretty awful. But in the last several years, this trend has been bucked. For evidence, you need look no further than the Siren Project, who opened this show. For the last few years, since the Project has shed members and gained others, it seems to have struggled a bit with its musical identity. But for this show, it seems as though the new line-up has solidified considerably with Malgorzata Wacht and Alex Seminara working in better concert with Noel Johannes on synth and a full rhythm section.
