Godspeed You! Black Emperor
After their long absence, GY!BE's untarnished legacy of post-rock/classical minimalism has spawned hordes of imitators and arguably countless new micro-genres. Just follow the band's family tree--Silver Mt. Zion, Fly Pan Am--and/or the many who cite their influence--Mono, Mogwai, the Books, Explosions the Sky. Tonight, Worldless Music reunites this Montreal instrumental collective for their first Brooklyn shows in eight years. (They play Terminal 5 on Monday.) Expect haunting melodies, textural abstractions, droning-insect crescendos, and wave after wave of hurricane-like beautiful destruction.
