Phone (01224) 642230Doors 8pm | Entry 15.50 | 10 Lemon Tree Concessions & Regularshttp://www.lemontree.org/music-boredoms.htmlhttp://www.myspace.com/interestingmusicBOREDOMSCelebrating their 20th anniversary, the legendary Japanese avant-garde rock band Boredoms bring a visceral live experience to Aberdeen for the first time and Scotland for only the second. Comprised of three drummers and a keyboard-playing turntables-mashing vocalist, they have wowed audiences the world around for the best part of two decades, playing to sell-out crowds, garnering much critical acclaim and becoming firm favourites of Nirvana and Sonic Youth as well as performing regularly at the All Tomorrow's Parties festivals. Boredoms' experiments in post-rock, kraut-rock and space-rock have led to them to being called "the most out-there band in the world", with their record Super Ae described as one of the best albums of the 90s by Pitchforkmedia.com. However, their live performances are where they truly shine - bringing their beautiful, melodic, sometimes tribal music to life on stage, with an absolutely unparalleled live show. Aberdeen, meet Osaka.http://www.myspace.com/boredomshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BoredomsMICHAEL GIRAAlso on this superb double bill is Michael Gira - owner of Young God Records which spawned Devendra Banhart amongst many other luminaries. Michael also founded the influential Swans. Now armed with a sombre voice and an acoustic guitar, he makes bare and direct folk-tinged, song-based but still crucial music.Recently performed an utterly thrilling acoustic set (The Independent) at Indian Summer. Not to be missed. Seriouslyhttp://www.younggodrecords.comhttp://www.swans.pair.com Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
