Drummer Jim White of Dirty 3 and Cretan lute player George Zylouris perform as Xylouris White on their return to Dublin on May 25 when they play the Grand Social, thanks once more to the wonderful Enthusiastic Eunuch Promotions.
They've recently released second album Black Peak, recorded by Fugazi's Guy Picciotto, utilising their panoramic backgrounds after first meeting in Melbourne in 1990. They combine free jazz, avant-rock and Greek folk to tell tales rooted in history and mythology, unveiling truths along the way. Check out 'Forging' live in Dublin's Guerrilla Studios.
Cork's The Bonk - listen to their phenomenal self-released album here - who'll bring some well-orchestrated experimental, jazz-tinted retro garage R&B. They're also one of our 18 for '18 acts.
Tickets cost €16.50 concession from Billetto. Doors open at 8pm.
