Marc Ribot & the Young Philadelphians releasing ‘Live in Tokyo,’ playing release shows ++ other tour dates
Accomplished jazz/experimental/everything guitarist Marc Ribot stays very busy playing shows in many configurations. One of them is with The Young Philadelphians, a band that includes guitarist Mary Halvorson, and Philly soul musicians Jamaaladeen Tacuma, and G. Calvin Weston, on bass and drums respectively. The band describe themselves as "where deco meets disco meets decon" and on the LP Live In Tokyo they offer very different interpretations of '70s classics like "Love Roller Coaster" and "The Hustle." That record came out last year in Germany but will get a U.S. release on July 29. You can check out "The Hustle" and "Do It Any Way You Want" (originally by People's Choice) below.
Marc Ribot & the Young Philadelphians (with Chris Cochrane subbing for Halvorsen) will be playing a few shows in support of the live LP including one at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on July 28. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (5/25) at noon.
Marc also has upcoming dates with Ceramic Dog, and will also play NYC's Vision Festival at Judson Memorial Church on June 7 where he'll be performing with the Henry Grimes Septet. Passes for Vision Festival are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
