First Avenue presents Dirty Three with The Cairo Gang (at The Cedar)
It's been a wicked dry spell of seven years since the filthy unit of Mick Turner, Jim White, and Warren Ellis graced the world with a full-length album of any kind. As individuals, they've had their hands in many different pies between now and then, but nothing comes close to what occurs when the Dirty Three lock themselves in a room with the tape rolling to milk whatever they can out of each other. This time around, they've discovered the heavens and its heat source, birthing to the world a brand-spanking new album and gracefully aiming it straight for that giant orange bulb of the sky . . . they call it Toward The Low Sun and Drag City is proud to have released it.
The Cairo Gang opens, and with any luck will be bringing copies of their brand new album The Corner Man (Endless Nest), due out on Oct 2..
