Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit
June 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
7 pm doors 7:30 show.
$10-$20 suggested donation. Please also bring food or wine to share.
Large Unit is twelve Nordic musicians led by the high-energy phenom drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. Ensemble musical motifs with alternately elegiac, squelchy, and emphatic improvisations are interlocked in a shifting, sonic poetry. It’s a jazz big band if you can agree that the crunchy, tabletop electronics of Lasse Marhaug, an accordion, and two bassists who veer into Post-Punk territory can coexist with the traditions of the Swing. Countenance these elements colliding with your Ellington or Gil Evans or not, this is an exemplar Civic Minded 5 spectacle.
Tattoos & Vinyls
Our Large Unit concert is an ambitious affair with fourteen Nordic visitors. We have a few rolling costs above budget to cover including an extra nights’ stay for a few musicians and needing to move the Timucua piano out of the line of fire. Please consider being a sonic philanthropist by choosing from the aesthetically pleasing and- in the case of our Large Unit US Tour temporary tattoo- typically off-center cm5 concert premiums. It’s easy; just reserve a ticket by donating your selected amount and receive one of the premium packages at the door! Thanks for considering this and for attending our concerts. Tuesday’s is the culmination of three years of planning. See you there.
