Gang of Four

When: Sat., Feb. 16, 8 p.m. 2019

Pioneering post-punk band, the GANG OF FOUR were formed by guitarist Andy Gill in the bricolage punk rock fallout culture of late seventies Leeds, UK ā€“ a place where art was a mirror and guitars were machine guns.

They redesigned rock in the punk aftermath, taking the incendiary energy of the form and crisscrossing it with funk, stripping away the baggage of rock excess and creating a new stripped-down music that was full of energy, heavy grooves, shrapnel guitars and politically charged lyrics matching the harshness of the times.

Werewolf Jones, one of Metro Times' 2019 bands to watch, will open the show.
