Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra have undergone many shifts in sound (and names) over their decade-plus career. The Canadian band's sprawling, churning songs have grown to reflect the inherent musical unrest of their ever-changing members, especially Godspeed You Black Emperor's Efrim Menuck. Each protracted number reflects a fitful search for a hard-earned truth, as their songs frequently swell in dissonance as they reach toward a lofty emotional impact. Their riveting live shows are a study in both restraint and release, and will certainly have the walls of the Cedar shaking at some point. Boisterous local openers the Cloak Ox will add to the experimental sonic nature of the evening. (Photo by Yannick Grandmont)
