Fian, a rock n’ roll band from Seattle, will be kicking off Orcas Center’s 2021 live-streaming events on Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. Go to to watch the livestream. Fian’s music generally meanders along loose structures with liberal exploration of wide dynamic ranges and lyrical subject matter. Frankly, attempting to describe their sound to the uninitiated has become a bit of a running gag. Operatic in ambition, Fian defies all attempts to be crammed into any existing genre categories. The list of bands used as analogs to Fian’s sound is diverse to the point of absurdity and uselessness. King Crimson, Dire Straits, At the Drive-in, Muse, and Pink Floyd are among the more common, with some people saying they are reminiscent of Dio, Pearl Jam, Joni Mitchell, Panic at the Disco, or the music of Les Miserables.
