Tortoise to Perform at the Firebird on Tuesday, September 29

SOURCE: Published:
The Chicago-based instrumental “post-rock" band Tortoise (pictured), whose members are also involved in their hometown's sprawling improvised music scene, is coming to St. Louis* on Tuesday, September 29 to perform at the Firebird, 2706 Olive, just west of Jefferson.

Together since 1990, the members of Tortoise have developed a sound that incorporates influences from jazz and alt-rock to techno and dub, and as a result have attracted an equally diverse fan base, ranging from young people who frequent rock venues like the Firebird to older fans of jazz and electronic music. They're touring to support their latest CD Beacons of Ancestorship, which came out in June.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show, which includes opening act Prefuse 73, starts at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $18 (plus a $2 service charge) and can be purchased here.
