CONCERT: September Mourning’s night of female-fronted rock

Comics and graphic novels have become a cinematic medium and thanks to hard rock graphic novel project September Mourning, they’re expanding their own space in the music world.

September Mourning made a stop in Providence late last week on their Summer Soul Collection Tour. Along with their eclectic entourage of comic-inspired figures came some of the very best of east coast hard rock.

New York-native Horribly Right and Rhode Island/Massachusetts-based Blind Revision kicked off the evening at Fete Music Hall on Sept. 23, fleshing out the already-impressive list of headliners that included Kaleido and Charcoal Tongue. It was difficult not to notice that four of the five bands performing were fronted by women, a welcome reprieve from the male-saturated hard rock world.

Centering on the concept of human/grim-reaper hybrid, September Mourning frontwoman Emily Lazar personifies the fictional character of September. September’s story plays out in a number of interactive platforms – including a visual narration of the comics played on stage as well as through September Mourning’s music and live performances.
