Dublin experimental promoters Dhalgren Sound bring one of the world's most innovative & adventurous drummers Greg Fox back to Dublin, playing the Bello Bar on July 17, following its postponement from May.
Based out of New York, he's played on and released over 50 albums in the last decade, including Liturgy, Ben Frost, Colin Stetson and many more. Check out his second solo album, The Gradual Progression, which brims with polyrhythmic exploration. Using his kit featuring tonal triggers and virtual instruments brought together with his post-free jazz inclination, Fox will be joined by Michael Beharie on guitar, Maria Grand on sax & Justin Frye on double bass.
Sharing the bill are Whirling Hall of Knives, a collaboration between Magnetize and The Last Sound. Their harsh smouldering circuits and eruptions of panicky white noise have a profoundly unsettling quality, a sense of gnawing paranoia but interspersed with moments of almost euphoric epiphany, as if in the grip of an unshakeable 4am psychosis a growing sense that the door will be kicked in at any second and the world outside will come pouring in. Psyche electronics of a particularly greasy and grime-flecked hue - check them out on Bandcamp.
Tickets are available from Eventbrite, priced €13.66. Doors open at 8pm.
