Wake up, motherfucker: Mats Gustafsson's primary unit, The Thing, plays Vancouver tonight! Fans of Albert Ayler, Peter Brotzmann, late Coltrane... or people who just appreciate balls-to-the-wall playing in any idiom should make it out to the Ironworks, at 235 Alexander for Mats' Vancouver return (sure, he's here throughout the upcoming jazz festival, but this is The Thing, we're talking about). Check Alex Varty's Straight article for a bit more insight into the new album and an idea of what to expect (a "musical punch in the face" - nice!). See y'all there!
