"The last great band of the century"--NME

These avant-rock heroes bring their triumphant collective sound to the Wexner Center Performance Space.

Montreal's nine-piece collective, godspeed you black emperor!, performs epic, electric elegies. Their sweeping sound is buoyed by shimmering masses of strings and guitars that arc over intricate layers of percussion and tape loops.
