For the final episode of the Upstairs, Man music sessions, we have Maine rock legends, When Particles Collide. Watch Chris and Sasha tear through 3 numbers with power, empathy, and talent! At times it's hard to tell which bond is stronger, their music or marriage.
More about the band:
When Particles Collide - Trained as a jazz drummer and choral vocalist, Chris met Sasha, a self taught punk rocker and singer-songwriter in the spring of 2010 when they were both cast in a Bangor Maine production of the rock ‘n roll musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. They have been working together ever since to find where disparate influences come together to create melody forward, hard hitting, genre bending rock ‘n roll. When Particles Collide has built a reputation as a must see band one show at a time touring all over the US and Canada. They are currently a full time, independent touring outfit living out of their 2014 Ram Promaster and rack up over 200 shows per year. Under their own record label, Unstoppable Rock Records they have released eight sets of recordings including three vinyl records (Photoelectric 2014-sold out, Ecotone 2016-currently in the album’s second pressing, and Fade To Gold 2018-Limited edition, hand screened artwork on Side B). Before becoming full time musicians Sasha taught high school chemistry for 18 years and Chris worked in the car business and as a nanny. Sasha and Chris were also married at the theater where they met in June of 2013.
