17 November – The Cult Band of Post-Rock
Godspeed You! Black Emperor is a revered Montreal collective whose singular style combines classical music, experimental rock and multimedia. Even though the band has never broken into the mainstream, it has gained an extremely dedicated cult following, and remains very influential in the post-rock genre. The band’s minimal and patient compositions result in a meditative and hypnotic listen. They released their fifth LP in March 2015. The Istanbul concert is at 9 p.m. at Zorlu Performing Arts Center.
