Guitars, More Guitars, Another Guitar - Tonight!

Posted by Robyn / January 30, 2007

thunder_gods_8BC_1987_l.jpg Yeah, this is gonna be good. If guitars are "your thing", it's gonna be even better. Minimalist composer Rhys Chatham will be here in Montreal tonight, but he won't be alone.

In every city he's touring this time around, local musicians will join Chatham on stage. To play one song. And one chord. Okay, there's a rhythm section too. And awesome amplifiers, to be sure. And visual projections (created for the piece in 1977 by famed visual artist and feature-film director Robert Longo.) It's all in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Chatham's influential "Guitar Trio". The ensemble tonight will feature members of such Montreal bands as Godspeed You Black Emperor, Silver Mt. Zion, Black Ox Orkestar, Nutsak, Cursed, Set Fire To Flames, Jerusalem In My Heart, and Crackpot, as well as guitar guru Harris Newman. Plus, the night begins around 9:15 with Thames, the mindblowing duo of b. hargreaves (dreamcatcher/cousins of reggae) and a. moskos (unireverse/et sans/drainolith). It will be a treat.
