Tickets are on sale now for Lean Left (The Ex Guitars meets Nilssen-Love/Vandermark Duo) who play Whelan’s on 18th September.
Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-Love have played together since 2000 in various settings & as a duo since 2002. The duo work within free expression while including a strong element of heavy rhythmic groove, melody, sound & noise. Together, they join Andy Moor & Terrie Ex of Dutch legends THE EX, who are known for mixing elements of rock, free improvisation, traditional folk & abstract noise to create their own very unique soundworld.
Having already collaborated on last years Brass Unbound tour both duos converge, crashing along sometimes, creating a cacophonous racket but always musical & always ready to change direction or turn a new corner. The music of Lean Left is extroverted, energetic, powerful & inclusive but also confrontational & provocative, where rhythm, noise, melody & harmony melt together in perfect union.
8pm, Tuesday 18th September
Whelan’s, Wexford Street
Tickets €16 including booking fee available from www.wavtickets.ie or the WAV Box Office on 1890 200078.
