ALT-ELECTRONIC CELLO BY THIRD SEVEN, Aka BILLY MICKELSON, MARCH 15 AT THE LCCC
LINCOLN CITY – On Friday, March 15, the Lincoln City Cultural Center will host a concert by cellist Billy Mickelson, also known as Third Seven. His one-man band performance uses looping and layering of cello with beats and vocals to fill an entire room with sounds you can get lost in. Mickelson also calls himself the “Cello Magician.”
“The world needs the cello sciences of Third Seven in their lives, badly,” wrote one reviewer. “Tom Waits and Zoe Keating had a baby together, and it was called ‘Third Seven,’’ said another.
Mickelson has played music his entire life, but has been performing music professionally full time since 2008. He plays mostly solo, but has also traveled with a number of Portland bands like Mr. Potato, Larry & His Flash, and the Dela Project.
As Third Seven, Mickelson knows no bounds, performing for yoga classes, punk rock shows, dive bars, venues, coffee shops, wineries, art shows, blue grass shows, metal shows, folk shows, hip hop shows and just about everywhere else.
Doors to this innovative show will open at 6:30 pm on Friday, March 15, in the auditorium at the LCCC, 540 NE Hwy. 101. Beer, wine and refreshments will be available for sale. The music will begin at 7 pm. Tickets, on sale now, are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.
