Band Details

From the Promoter

NYC guitar maverick Marc Ribot performs a rare solo set in Toronto. Ribot's legacy has seen him collaborate with Tom Waits, John Zorn, Elvis Costello & a plethora of others. His numerous diverse bands and ensemble projects, plus seven solo releases have worked to define him as one of the most unique and versatile voices on the guitar. From no wave, re-imagined blues, free improvisation, and avant jazz to contemporary composition Ribot moves from one mood to another with careful continuity. Intricate notes float off his strings with a natural abandon. His solo performances see him swim through the menagerie style and genres he's touched on through out his decades of exploration in the avant guitar world.

Montreal experimental guitarist Vicky Mettler creates mutant compositions from looped guitar noise, angular melodies, creeping vocals and grumbling electronics. Her vocals whisper to rhythmic guitar notes, haunted textures ripple out from her guitar strings. Kee Avil sees Mettler's captivating compositions constructed out of what feels like bits of sonic refuse come to life. A beautiful and dazzling work of assemblage. If you haven't seen Kee Avil her live performance is not to be missed!
