GoGo Penguin / The Mattson 2
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Hailing from Manchester, England, acoustic/electronica trio GoGo Penguin comprises pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner. Drawing on a heady brew of influences from Brian Eno, John Cage, Massive Attack, and Aphex Twin to Manchester’s gray, rain-streaked streets, they create a brave new sound that is entirely their own.
The Mattson 2 is composed of identical twins featuring untamed guitar sound and tribal jazz drumming. They have toured throughout the United States, Asia, Brazil, Europe, Scandinavia, and the Netherlands. They have collaborated with Chaz Bundick (Toro y Moi), Cornelius, Ray Barbee, Tommy Guerrero, and Money Mark.
