Nels Cline & The Nels Cline Singers – 11/10 – Rough Trade (Brooklyn, NY)

Guitar nuts rejoice! Nels Cline is one of the most mesmerizing performers ever to pick up a six-stringed instrument. He seems capable of playing anything from skull-smashing hard rock to delicate, lyrical jazz. Lately, he’s been in something of a country-rock groove as the lead guitarist for Wilco, but Cline hasn’t shed his eclectic identity altogether. Just this year, he’s put out a new album, Macroscope, with The Nels Cline Singers, and he’s got a new album of jazz guitar performances with Julian Lage coming later this month. However, it’s the Singers who will be joining Cline for two sets at Rough Trade’s Brooklyn outpost. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Rough Trade website.
