SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Petit A L'Arme!, Radialsystem V, 8pm
For the first two installations of the A L’ARME FESTIVAL (in 2012 and 2013), Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson blew both minds and eardrums with his collaborations, first with Neneh Cherry and then with Thurston Moore.
This year, Gustafsson returns to Berlin with a jazz group consisting of Italian bassist Massimo Pupillo (from the band ZU) and American drummer Brian Chippendale (from the band Lightning Bolt).
In a scaled-down version of the festival, the avant-garde super group will perform a set that is guaranteed to be anything but. Expect experimental jazz, distorted noise, frenetic drumming and tonal belligerence. Natalye Childress
