Instrumental duo El Ten Eleven return to The Constellation Room Oct. 6, this time with the addition of vocalist Emile Mosseri (The Dig).

With over 15 years as El Ten Eleven, Kristian Dunn (double-neck and bass guitar) and Tim Fogarty (drums) recently released their first EP with vocals. Unusable Love offers four tracks of their signature dreamy noise but this time with sultry vocals weaving in and around the soundscape.

Following are Fogarty’s replies to a couple of questions from a previous interview:

CGL: Do you have a particular song you look forward to playing live and why?
TF: The first song in the set, so I can be done pacing in the green room.

CGL: What interesting or amusing situation have you encountered while on tour?
TF: We were at a truck stop in New Mexico, getting gas, when this meth’d out mom cruised up beside the van, asking for money in exchange for “favors,” while her son is sitting in the car. We declined and she proceeded to mash the right side of her car into the gas pump barricade as she pulled away. We told the employees to call the cops because she was going to kill someone.

CGL: If you could be anyone other than yourself, living or deceased, who would it be and why?
TF: Felix Baumgartner, the guy who parachuted from space. I want to try that sometime. Do you think he will ever have to buy a beer again?
