The Stage is Set for Qiet Once Again
(Note: Qiet is the correct spelling – no u!)
Special to Huntingtonnews.net
This Friday, June 25th, at the V-Club in downtown Huntington, innovative local art-rock band Qiet will be playing their first show in eight months.
The core of Qiet’s delightful, rotating cast of musicians, artists, and performers consists of: Christopher Harris on guitar and vocals, Jordan Trent on bass, Noah Bird on drums, Courtney Holschuh providing trombone and backing vocals, Abby Holmes adding violin and backing vocals, Nich Harris as Qiet's utility man, and Mike Waldeck playing whatever he can get his hands on. These people, among others, combine powers to create the Qiet spectacle.
When asking the band how so many people came together to make this unique music – epic songs that might bring Arcade Fire or David Bowie to mind but remain truly original – their response was: "Fate and desperation led us all down the same musical path to Qiet." The band is known (one could perhaps say notorious) for offering more than just a standard rock show, incorporating lighting, costumes and performance art to give the audience a 360-degree feast of the senses. They also prize interactivity with the audience, asking the crowd to participate in performances and having audience members join them on stage to sing songs with the band.
Doors open at 8 p.m. at the V Club, located on 8th Street and 6th Avenue in Huntington, WV. Admission is $5 at the door. Special guests set to open the show are singer-songwriter Chuck Robertson of Ashland, KY, and The Dinosaur Burps, a hip-hop act from Charleston, WV. For more details, visit www.myspace.com/qiet.
