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.
