"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."
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: peregrinefalls.com
