At Cafe OTO

Amongst the shows over the next seven days, we’re over the moon to welcome Anthony Braxton for a very rare three night residency with his ZIM Sextet. Ever since OTO first opened its doors in 2008, Anthony Braxton has been up at the top of the list of people we wanted to host here. One of the fundamental figures in the music of the late 20th century, his work as a saxophonist and composer has set trailblazing precedents by tapping into and expanding new conceptual and instrumental possibilities.

Pleased to see a blistering solo set from Masami Kawaguchi surface from the archives this week. The bleak, lonesome root of enka runs through maxxed out psychedelic guitar in surely one of the loudest sets ever played at the venue. Surprisingly delicate in parts, but it’s obvious his work with Haino has had an almost ear splitting effect.

New announcements this week include an album launch for Laura Cannell & André Bosman, plus Lydia Lunch & Weasel Walter, and a rescheduled date for Jimi Tenor after flight cancellations forced him to pull out of last week’s performance.

Full listings and all new shows below. We look forward to seeing you here.
