Nels Cline Singers Coming To Cafe Du Nord

Sometimes-Wilco guitarist Nels Cline has no shortage of other musical projects, and many of them are based right here in the Bay Area. It's just been announced that the Nels Cline Singers will be playing a show at the Cafe Du Nord on November 19th.

The Singers are vastly different from Wilco, and somewhat hard to characterize: most descriptions usually attempt some variation on "avant garde jazz". Truth be told, that's far too much of a generalization. To our ears the band has a style that's completely its own - Cline's frenetic guitar leaves the band on a path that toes the line between rock, jazz, and everything in between. If you haven't seen them yet (or if you have, for that matter), this is a band worth checking out.

Tickets are on-sale now.
