      "Marc Ribot's new power trio, filled out by the remarkable versatile rhythm team of bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Ches Smith, is his rawest band in ages."  ~TimeOut NY

      New York City-based jazz guitarist Marc Ribot and his Ceramic Dogs come in fangs bared and snapping. In perhaps his rawest ensemble to date, Ribot and his trio bring down the house with their jam-heavy, rock-driven electro-freak funk, shamelessly drawing on hard rock and extreme sonorities, while remaining accessible and delectable all at once. While hovering in and out of jazz as effortlessly as he does in rock, Ribot and his stooges aim to push listeners into an experience somewhere between jazz and funk, bringing a whole new meaning to the term “hard rock”. But, at the end of the day, as Ribot says, “Ceramic Dogs just wanna have fun.” 

      Opening act - PEREGRINE FALLS
      Gordon Grdina and Kenton Loewen tease out the heavy handed improv with sticks and guitar strings. Lacerating riffs curl out like black smoke, drums tumbling erratic like a head-on locomotive collision. Witness inspired expertise in form of mathy sludge. For more information visit:
