Mike Rivard's improvisational groove collective returns to the warm embrace of the Lizard Lounge with special guests, the guitar and percussion duo THE MAST
The Mast (Haale Gafori & Matt Kilmer) celebrate their new CD w/ an opening set at 9:30.
The music of Club d'Elf flies through North African trance, glitchy turntablism, freeform improvisation, and rock psychedelia, but it's playfully altered states of musical consciousness that truly guide the band. Witness founder Mike Rivard's first night in Morocco, the country that had fired his musical imagination for more than a decade: In a strikingly vivid dream, he felt himself swimming upwards in the air as fantastic landscapes, mountains, and tiled buildings stretched out beneath him.
The banda rotating group of players drawn from a pool that includes keyboardist John Medeski, DJ Logic, David Bowie's guitarists or any number of Moroccan musical iconsswims in the same dreamlike atmosphere, both liveClub d'Elf tours New England this Apriland on their new double album Electric Moroccoland / So Below (Face Pelt; April 5, 2011).
"A promising new Brooklyn duo comprised of mesmerizing singer-guitarist Haale and limber percussionist Matt Kilmer."
"Remarkably lushKilmer's tribal drumming is fantastic. Haale is firing off rounds and rounds of hooks all throughout the albumeach song is a pronounced statement of unbridled charisma."
