Nels Cline

by

NYC-via-Cali guitar-wielding godhead Nels Cline is one tireless, globe-hopping maestro. Consider this: Just in the last year, the punk-jazz noise-monger has performed his six-string magic with Cibo Matto and Wilco, dueled with young gun Julian Lage on guitar-duo record Room, and, with the Nels Cline Singers, given an ax-shredding clinic on Macroscope. Tonight, Cline’s DIY free-improv roots will be in full-throttle gear as he converges with the hall-of-famers of Brooklyn’s avant-jazz scene for interstellar fret-pounding and skronk-heavy freakouts.
