Pearly Gate Music

"...opening act, Zach Tillman, began playing. He immediatley filled the space with melodic finger-picking, deep-voiced Leonard Cohen-like tunes. He sang about a girl named Lola as well sarcasticly driven songs about Jesus to set up the night for his older brother's band, in which Zach plays bass." [fend magazine]
Zach Tillman is Pearly Gate Music - he's also the brother of solo artist & Fleet Fox J. Tillman, who he toured to NYC with last fall.

His full-length, self-titled debut is due May 18th on Barsuk - a 7" single off that is available now. Three songs off the album are streaming on his MySpace. He also visited Daytrotter in early February.

Pearly Gate Music will be at SXSW this year, and one of his shows will be the brooklynVegan Friday (3/19) day party at Club DeVille, where he'll play alongside Twin Sister, Centro-matic, Lucero, The Antlers and more (full lineup TBA very soon).

Guggenheim billed it as a performance piece and it was just an installation. Resultingly, the crowd simply waited for the "show" to start, limiting anyone's ability to freely explore the space (the ground floor was packed with indian-style seaters, and the balconies were lined with people holding onto their spots like grim death.

Hey ya'll we lost another one.......but I'm glad to have grown up with gangstarr as representatives of this music that has an incredible history.....hip hop is a book that wrote itself and GURU was definetly one of its main characters.....we are all getting older.....and GURU is one of the MCs that added a soundtrack to our lives in the 80's and 90's.......the NAMES,PLACES and FACES come to mind when I hear a GANGSTARR track.........I thank GOD that he allowed GURU to shine in his short time...........REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE GURU
