Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog

Please join Ars Nova Workshop and R5 Productions for a special night of music at the new Boot & Saddle as Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog returns to Philadelphia.

Five years after their critically acclaimed debut release, Ceramic Dog, the power trio featuring guitarist/vocalist Marc Ribot (who has collaborated with Tom Waits, John Zorn, T-Bone Burnett, Marianne Faithful, the Lounge Lizards, and Elvis Costello), bassist Shahzad Ismaily (as seen with Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Burnt Sugar, and the Secret Chiefs 3) and drummer Ches Smith (who has performed with Xiu Xiu, Good for Cows, the Secret Chiefs 3, and Tim Berne’s Snakeoil), is back with the hard-hitting tour de force Your Turn (Northern Spy, 2013).

Time Out New York called Ceramic Dog Ribot’s “rawest band in ages” while theNew York Times wrote, “The musicianship is intense regardless of the subtext, with all three players hurling themselves into their effort.”

Ribot, who describes Ceramic Dog as a “free/punk/funk/experimental/psychedelic/post electronica collective,” says that Your Turn was two years in the making. “Second records are notoriously hard to nail down,” he explains. “We tried to make it a few times. Finally we got it right — meaning, we got it to sound wrong, exactly like us.”

“Those searching for rigorously applied formal constraints may have to wait,” says Ribot. “Ceramic Dogs just wanna have fun.”Please join Ars Nova Workshop for a special night of music at The Boot & Saddle as Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog returns to Philadelphia.
