Godspeed You! Black Emperor at Granada Theater
Live music is like food. Sometimes you want fast junk, but occasionally you want the dish unhurried, richly textured and profoundly delicious. Montreal's Godspeed You! Black Emperor are progenitors of the "slow music" movement that emerged in the late '90s, and after a 10-year hiatus, the band has reformed to serve up its unique audiovisual experience. GY!BE were always unique among the post-rock era of Sigur Rós and Explosions in the Sky, and never shied away from a radical political point of view, whether in liner notes, album covers or the visuals that accompany live performances. This show is scheduled a week before the release of the band's first album in a decade, ALLELUJAH! DON'T BEND! ASCEND!A deluxe package is being sold at performances. Total Life open.
