Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog
BlueShore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts at Capilano University
Time 8:00 pm
New York City-based jazz guitarist Marc Ribot and his Ceramic Dogs come in fangs bared and snapping. In perhaps his raw-est ensemble to date, Ribot and his trio bring down the house with their jam-heavy, rock-driven electro-freak funk, shamelessly drawing on hard rock and extreme sonorities, while remaining accessible and delectable all at once. While hovering in and out of jazz as effortlessly as he does in rock, Ribot and his stooges aim to push listeners into an experience somewhere between jazz and funk, bringing a whole new meaning to the term “hard rock”. But, at the end of the day, as Ribot says, “Ceramic Dogs just wanna have fun.” With Marc Ribot guitar & voice, Ches Smith drums and Shahzad Ismaily bass & electronics.
