Marc Ribot at Royce Hall – UCLA, November 21

 

Date: November 21, 2014ribot

Time: 8:00 pm

Rolling Stone points out that “Guitarist Marc Ribot helped Tom Waits refine a new, weird Americana on 1985′s ‘Rain Dogs’ and since then he’s become the go-to guitar guy for all kinds of roots-music adventurers: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp.” The shapeshifting avant-garde guitarist-composer and downtown NYC icon will grace the Royce Hall stage in two different settings that highlight a mere fraction of his seemingly limitless creative output. He is a fearless and endlessly diverse bandleader, go-to studio player, and all-around musical polymath.

Having performed on the scores for Everything Is Illuminated, The Departed and The Killing Zone, Ribot shines in the cinematic form. An opening solo set based on his 2010 album Silent Movies will feature original solo compositions, including several unreleased movie tracks and scores created for films that exist only in the performer’s imagination.

In the program’s second half, Ribot rocks the house with one of New York City’s ultimate party bands, Los Cubanos Postizos (a.k.a “The Prosthetic Cubans”). The group’s feverishly cooking shows are built around arrangements of Cuban bandleader Arsenio Rodríguez—innovator of the son montuno. Re-formed by popular demand with original members Roberto Rodriguez (drums), Anthony Coleman (keys), Brad Jones (bass) and EJ Rodriquez (percussion).
