Cathedrals 4

The great acoustics you can get in a bathroom is one of musicians' favorite jokes (or not joke—Paul Simon liked to take his guitar into his tiled bathroom and play "The Sound of Silence" with the faucet running). But what about a much classier and even more cavernous stone cathedral? Nathan Marion, the Fremont Abbey Arts director who created The Round concert series, envisioned indie rock artists quietly playing in the grand space of Capitol Hill's St. Mark's Cathedral, while audiences sat back in pews or on the floor, and he has now staged such shows with My Brightest Diamond, Gold Leaves, and Mark Pickerel, among others. This latest installment will be headlined by Damien Jurado, whose peaceful, pensive songs will sound absolutely perfect echoing off the cathedral's high ceilings like thousand-year-old Gregorian chants. With Kevin Long, Naomi Wachira, Pepper Proud. ERIN K. THOMPSON
