Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group live at the Button Factory

Tomorrow night sees the arrival of the Omar Rodriguez Lopez group to Dublin for what I believe is the first time in this current guise. The guitarist, who has over 40 releases to his name including so many seminal albums with The Mars Volta and At The Drive-In, has recently been ranked amongst Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Greatest Guitarist of all Time”. He will be joined on stage by TMV bandmate Deantoni Parks as well as Teri Gender Bender of Les Butcherettes. Gig goers can expect a journey through multiple genres spanning latino, jazz, psychedelic rock and just plain absurd.

Lorn – Ghost

Lorn released his debut album Nothing Else on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label back in 2010.
Now he is firmly at home with London based Ninja Tune records and is preparing to release his second LP Ask The Dust in June. Ghosts is the first cut to be taken from that release.
