"An ever evolving garden of sonic flora...watch the next year unfold for this ground breaking quartet."—The Social Registry

Tipped as the latest band poised to break out of the boroughs, Gang Gang Dance makes its Columbus debut at this performance, a must-see event for fans of what's next in music.

Moving in the same orbit as Black Dice and Animal Collective, New York art-rock quartet Gang Gang Dance builds up throbbing layers of sound that call to mind the legacy of such bands as krautrock collective Can, Lower East Side legends Konk, or Japanese noiseniks the Boredoms. Drawing heavily on improvisation, the band counters jagged dance rhythms and floating melodies with the seismic pull of ritualistic crescendos.

Please note: this is a SRO show.
