Marc Ribot, Chaplin's The Kid

Marc Ribot, one of the great eclectic, electric guitarists, has released more than 25 albums under his own name over a 40-year career, exploring everything from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler with his group Spiritual Unity, to the Cuban son of Arsenio Rodríguez producing two critically acclaimed releases under Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos, and his critically acclaimed release Silent Movies, which was described by the Village Voice as a “down-in- mouth-near masterpiece.”

Rolling Stone points out that “Guitarist Marc Ribot helped Tom Waits refine a new, weird Americana on 1985's Rain Dogs, and since then he's become the go-to guitar guy for all kinds of roots-music adventurers: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp.”

Opening with a solo set, this show features a screening of Charlie Chaplin’s classic film, The Kid, with a live score provided by Marc Ribot. Ribot’s delicate and at times haunting solo guitar score to The Kid contemporizes this film, which remains a relevant story about our current economic and social conditions.
