Music: Industrial Revelation Details: The popular Seattle quartet Industrial Revelation has earned a reputation for combining jazz, hip hop, electronica and other styles in music that has cross-cultural and multi-generational appeal. The band was formed ten years ago, when all four were either students at Cornish, playing with or studying with noted saxophonist Hadley Caliman (Santana/Grateful Dead/Dexter Gordon), or both. Led by drummer D’Vonne Lewis, with Ahamefule J. Oluo on trumpet, Josh Rawlings, piano and electric keyboards and Evan Flory-Barnes on bass, the group plays with intensity and urgency, but cools to a quiet simmer for soulful ballads. All four compose and arrange music for the quartet. In the last year, Industrial Revolution has received music awards from The Stranger, The Seattle Weekly and Earshot Jazz in Seattle, WA. Time: 7:30pm (Doors open at 6:30pm) – Where: The Royal Room (5000 Rainier Avenue South Seattle, WA 98118) More Info:  http://www.theroyalroomseattle.com
