Flat Earth Society
Downtown - Georgia Street Stage
Time 7:30 pm
Billing themselves as "the most unreliable music since 1999", it’s now been ten years since Belgian big band Flat Earth Society last treated Vancouver audiences to their adventurous punk anarchy, orchestral intricacy, and cinematic dynamism. AllAboutJazz calls Peter Vermeersch’s Zappa and Ellington-infused 15-piece ensemble “the sonic equivalent of a freak show—weird, wonderful and like nothing you’ve come across before.” One of the most exciting contemporary large ensembles in Europe, FES has performed with many international guests including Uri Caine and Mike Patton.
