El Ten Eleven
El Ten Eleven
- El Ten Eleven gained notoriety through film & TV, featuring their music in various commercials from the likes of Lexus, to the MTV awards - Licensing partnerships with Gary Hustwit's award-winning design documentary trilogy, Helvetica, Objectified and Urbanized - Toured with artists such as Bonobo, with touring support coming from Baths, Peter Hook & The Light, Globes, and Races. They have performed at festivals such as Fun Fun Fun Fest, North Coast Music Festival and more. "tightly wound tunes with plenty of punch." - SPIN "The impression they're capable of leaving on listeners is akin to that of watching two guys stuff themselves into a tiny box, and then forcibly push the walls outward until it's a large box" - Consequence of Sound "They drive somewhere between a roughed-up version of Sigur Rós and Ratatat you wouldn't dare bring home to your parents" - FILTER "the duo incorporates a thematic quality of transitioning through enough styles and sounds to make the listener feel more than satisfied with the material heard" - CMJ Dallas Observer has called El Ten Eleven the 4th best instrumental band of the past 20 years. "Watching El Ten Eleven play is something like watching two superheroes do their thing." - SF Weekly "On For emily, band members Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty prove that there is better living through musical experimentation." - MXDWN
Sego
Sego
Led by artists whose life journey has taken them from rural simplicity to urban complexity, Sego's musical approach reflects the duality of the band members' personalities:  small-town boys living in the big city, equally drawn to both the cutting edge and the timeless, refusing to surrender flesh-and-blood humanity in an increasingly digitized and technologically driven world.  Sego's appeal lies not just in its intoxicating melodies & pulsating rhythms, but also in the bubbling tension — captured in both sound and theme — resulting from the band's search for synthesis and balance among competing and contradictory inspirations and urges.

Also, it's fun. Come see what the fuss is about.
