Los Angeles based 'power-duo' El Ten Eleven derived their name from an airplane, the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar. And much like an airplane, their music is as atmospheric as it is complex. On Saturday, September 7, they will bring their eccentric post-rock style to the Blind Pig for a wild set with electronic mastermind Eliot Lipp opening the night. El Ten Eleven, comprised of guitar-bass double neck player Kristian Dunn and drummer Tim Fogarty, formed in 2002 and has since toured extensively across the United States, releasing five full-length albums along the way.
