Chicago's Tortoise are fairly legendary in some circles (including the ones we tend to run in), and we could not have been more excited when they agreed to be a part of our show. They're one of the most original and interesting bands playing, and have been for over 20 years. They're pretty difficult to describe, so I shall let their label do it for me: "...Tortoise is a group that resists easy metaphors and analogies, who can be described as sounding like only themselves and no one else. Twenty years after its founding, the band’s signature and singularly inimitable sound—a fluid intersection of dub, dance, jazz, techno, rock, and classical minimalism, with no part overwhelming or dominating the whole—remains an American and international original." Enjoy!
