What You'll Get
Live concerts are meticulously coordinated events, with dedicated staff ensuring each instrument is tuned, each mic is working, and each band member is set in the upright and locked position. Keep their hard work from going to waste with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $12, you get one general-admission ticket see to Trentemøller at Showbox at the Market on Tuesday, November 1, at 6:30 p.m. (up to a $25.09 value, including fees).
Copenhagen-based musician Anders Trentemøller enraptures audiences with a four-piece live band that breathes life into his ambient electronic compositions. An accomplished producer who has remixed tracks for fellow Scandinavians Röyksopp and The Knife, Trentemøller garnered international acclaim as an artist with his debut LP, The Last Resort, in 2006, following a string of successful singles and an ill-fated attempt at a concert on Pluto. Onstage, Trentemøller and his band fuse elements of minimal electronica with pounding rock percussion and surf-guitar melodies, tearing through songs off Trentemøller's 2010 sophomore album, Into the Great Wide Yonder, as well as older cuts. The technologically savvy outfit headlined Roskilde Festival in Denmark in 2009, lighting up a crowd of 50,000 people and innumerable balloon animals with disposable incomes. A trio of opening acts primes audiences for the headliner with further electronic bliss, including New York pop outfit Xylos, ambient-experimental artist The Sight Below, and local techno DJ Nordic Soul.

About The Showbox
Duke Ellington. The Ramones. Pearl Jam. If a musical act has made a deep, cool-looking dent in American culture, it's probably played at The Showbox. The Seattle music venue has been drawing great performers since it opened in 1939, when the proto-proto-proto-grunge movement was underway. Paying tribute to this rich history, the owners recently gave The Showbox's lounge space a new old name: Kerns Music Shop, which used to be a storefront owned by a local trombonist.
