You are very welcome to visit bar Chomsky on Saturday, June the 14th, when parformance by Montreal-based singer and guitarplayer Dorothy Geller, aka Dora Bleu will take place. Evening starts at 20:00. Free entry.
Through the echoes of an acoustic guitar and vocal expressions, Dora Bleu explores intimate experience as the place where the capitalist war state replenishes itself. Her work is neither fully composed nor improvisational. The songs follow their own inner sense of narrative time, and are simultaneously tonal and atonal. The guitar is sparse, tense, suggestively melodic, sometimes dissonant. The vocals contribute to uneven compositions filled with stark silences and bent notes. The songs intend to violate the concept of genre, to infuse storytelling and text with trauma, vulnerability and the raw and unprotected. Recent releases include a full length LP with Tom Carter
(Charalambides) and Sam Shalabi (Shalabi Effect, Land of Kush, GYBE) on Tequila Sunris/Fire Museum and on Nostress Netlabel with Olga Nosova and Alexei Borisov (Notchnoy Prospekt). Prior releases are on VHF, Camera Obscura, Ikuisuus, Three Legged Cat and others.
The concert will be opened by a local duo act by noise-musican Jeļena Glazova and drummer Edgars Eihmanis, who is best known as a part of Riga-based slow-core/drone band Mona De Bo.
