Omar Rodriguez (of Mars Volta) Lopez Group playing NYC
“El Grupo Nuevo De Omar Rodriguez Lopez (for the spanish-challenged, that’s The New Group of ORL) is the melding of Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In), Zach Hill (Hella), Jonathan Hischke (ex-Hella), Juan Alderete de la Peña (The Mars Volta), and “features the vocals of guest frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In) on eight of the album’s eleven tracks”. OK, can it get any more spazzy? Sounds pretty wild, and judging by the tracks in the below video, it just may be.” [BBG]
Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group (which apparently is NOT what is described above) plays Highline Ballroom in NYC on May 2nd (but supposedly still with Zach Hill – possibly just as opener). Tickets are on sale (at the newly redesigned Ticketweb).
