Band Crush

Band Crush is back!

On Saturday, Dec. 9, City Arts will transform SoDo’s Piranha Shop into a recording studio for an intimate combined set featuring local indie bands Cataldo and Ruler.

Cataldo is an indie rock project fronted by songwriter Eric Anderson and Ruler is the performance moniker of Matt Batey and his band. They’re distinct projects with distinct sounds, but they very intentionally overlap: Anderson plays guitar and keys in Ruler and Batey plays lead guitar in Cataldo. Both full bands will be joining each other in collaboration—accompanied by a horn section—for a live musical mashup.

City Arts Band Crush is a concert and video series from City Arts that celebrates the ties between Northwest musicians. We ask our favorite music-makers to choose artists they love and then unite them for a special, one-night-only combined set. The resulting concerts are singular events performed for a 100-person in-studio audience and captured for the web in an expertly mixed video recording.

Band Crush is sponsored by Elysian Brewing.
