"The new new thing for 2004?"—The Observer

Don't miss this rare American concert by Norwegian band Jaga Jazzist. The 10-piece ensemble play inspired instrumentals that marvelously transpose glitchy drum 'n' bass dance rhythms to arrangements featuring horns and Fender Rhodes piano, instruments more commonly associated with jazz.

The Stix, the band's most recent release from electronica label Ninja Tune, won unanimous praise from savvy critics and such fans as Radiohead.
