Discovery Series hosts dance concert

Experimental rocker Spencer Seim (Hella, the Advantage) and folk singer-songwriter Aaron Ross will come together as Solos, a new “power psych” project during a dance concert Saturday presented by the Center for the Arts Discover Series.

Since their September release, the debut Solos album, “Beast Of Both Worlds,” has been winning praise from Pitchfork, ALARM and RCRD LBL.

Pitchfork premiered “All My Tribulations,” the lead single track from the recording. “Beast Of Both Worlds” showcases the duo’s ability to meld vivid “classic” sounds with modern songwriting sensibilities.

Recorded and produced by Guy Massey (The Beatles, Radiohead, Spiritualized, Depeche Mode), the album showcases Solos’ diverse talents.

Seim and Ross first came together in 2007 for Hella’s album, “There’s No 666 in Outer Space.” Joining Solos is A Million Billion Dying Suns, the project of guitarist, singer and principal songwriter Nate Mercereau with help from members of recognizable bands such as The Park and Happy Mayfield.

Recently reformed in San Francisco, band members include Steve Wyreman (guitar), Josh Lippi (bass), Derek Taylor (drums) and Ben Schwier (keys).

Tickets to the 9:15 p.m. Saturday show are $10 and are at the Center’s Box Office in person, by phone at 530-274-8384, ext. 14, or online at or at BriarPatch Co-op.
