Celebrated Washington, DC guitarist Anthony Pirog plays a rare Richmond date with his trio, on a painterly exploration of land- and soundscapes. Opening will be Zgomot, delivering their Eastern-European flavored avant-rock, DC's fabulous Luke Stewart on solo acoustic bass, and drummer/electronics wiz Ian McColm.
"It's a pleasure to hear this guitarist follow in (Bill) Frisell's footsteps toward distinctive new ground. Here with an avant-garde-leaning rhythm section of Michael Formanek and Ches Smith, Pirog ventures into bent jazz, jagged post-rock and lush atmosphere that's engineered for wide open spaces." - Chris Barton, LA Times
Solo acoustic bass
