Oakland art rock duo Grex visits Seattle’s Royal Room to celebrate the release of the new album Electric Ghost Parade, joined by Ivan Arteaga’s strange, whimsical experimental/improvisation project Tiny Ghost and a special solo set from powerhouse drummer Chris Icasiano.

Grex is an art rock band based out of Oakland, California. In biological terms, “grex” refers to the aggregation of a multitude of tiny, amoeba-like creatures combining to create a superorganism. Grex (the band) works the same way: two musicians who can function as one, the whole greater than… the sum of its parts.

Grex is a collaboration between guitarist/vocalist Karl Evangelista, a Los Angeles native, and keyboardist/vocalist Rei Scampavia, originally from Arlington, Virginia. The band’s mission: to explore the meeting point between fun, delightfully strange songcraft and the dark outer reaches of experimental music. The group has been called “an otherworldly experience” (Eugene Weekly) and “true genre warping music” (KFJC), recalling the explosive energy of Jimi Hendrix, the dark power of the Pixies, and the whimsical weirdness of Deerhoof.

Grex’s most recent album, entitled Electric Ghost Parade, is its magnum opus—an exhilarating, incendiary, and unpredictable paean to the epic psychedelic albums of the 1960’s, traversing the cutting edge of modern indie rock, noise, and free jazz.

Please note: Tickets do not guarantee seating during shows at the Royal Room. For sold out shows standing room may be the only available space. Please come early to ensure you get a table. Reservations can be made for those who are coming for dinner as well as the show. The Royal Room is All Ages until 10pm.
