In addition to an upcoming tribute to Jimi Hendrix Wilco guitarist Nels Cline will collaborate this weekend with his brother, Alex Cline.
Nels and Alex, who has played drums for a number of groups including his own Alex Cline Ensemble, will play this Saturday Jan. 13 at Santa Monica’s Moss Theater. In a statement, Nels said that the performance will contain spontaneous improvisation, reinterpreted originals and favorite covers.
“This will be only the third time that Alex and I, after something like 50 years of playing together (seriously!) have performed as a duo publicly,” the guitarist wrote. In fact, the Moss Theater is just a short distance from where the Cline brothers grew up in West Los Angeles.
Tickets for the Nels/Alex Cline duo show are available here.
