Montreal post-rock legends Godspeed You! Black Emperor return to Croatia after 17 years! They will perform with Danish saxophonist Mette Rasmussen at Zagreb’s Tvornica kulture on the 22nd of Novmeber,
Godspeed You! Black Emperor sure is one of the most interesting names in the rock genre overall. The band started in 1994 in Montreal Canada. Throughout the years they have become one of the most notable act in the post-rock genre, alongside the pioneers Talk Talk, Slint and Bark Psychosis. They visited Zagreb for the first time in 2002. A year later, the band was mistaken to be a group of terrorists after stopping at the gas station in Ardore, Oklahoma for fuel. The band was searched by FBI, but they were released because no incriminating evidence was found. After that the band had a long period of inactivity until they reunited in 2010. The band has released 6 albums to date and their live performances have been descirbed as a very unique experience. Bearing that in mind, witness this once in a lifetime opportunity for yourself.
Mette Rasmussen was born and raised in Denmark, but she lives and composes for years in Trondheim, Norway. She has been constantly touring for the last 6 years. Her ability to move between the often strict borders of the genre and to explore the sounds and textures in solo performances, as well as in collaborations, was the foundation for creating her own view on role of the saxophone in music. She constantly explores all the rawness of her own instrument to explore his possibilities of expression and to express it in her free jazz, while her energetic performances connect the audience and the artist, thus synthesize the energy created between them.
So hurry up for your ticket because you don’t want to miss this spectacle! You can find it at Dirty Old Shop (Tratinska 18), Rockmark (Berislavićeva 13) and through their web shops by the price of 150 kn or at the doors by 180 kn.
