BEAK> @ ATPNY 2011 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
As mentioned before, Geoff Barrow of Portishead's other group -- motorik postpunk trio BEAK> -- are over from Bristol, UK for a few shows on both coasts, hitting Bowery Ballroom on Sunday (2/10) with openers Chrome Canyon. Tickets for that show are still available. Saturday night (2/9), the three BEAK>s, Geoff Barrow, Billy Fuller, and Matt Williams will be DJing all night (well, 10 PM - 2 AM) in the lobby at ACE Hotel, which is free. Barrow doesn't DJ much anymore which is certainly a good excuse to brave the blizzard that is supposedly gonna hit us.
If you haven't heard Beak's terrific 2012 album, BEAK>>, you can stream it below, along with the video for non-LP single, "Mono." Updated US tour dates are listed below as well.
