Assemblage 23 is a Seattle-based electronic/synthwave band currently touring United States in support of their latest album Endure.
In a show produced by Spellbound Productions, Assemblage 23 drew quite a large crowd to an unusual new DC venue — Ivy City Smokehouse. As the name implies, Ivy City Smokehouse is a seafood restaurant, but it has a large, separate stage room that accommodated hundreds of concert-goers and provided Assemblage 23 with a state of the art sound system.
The Assemblage 23 live band consists of vocalist Tom Shear (who writes and records his albums solo), keyboardist Paul Seegers, and drummer Mike Jenney. Endure, the latest studio album, is the eighth full-length record from the project, which is signed to Metropolis Records.
