Philadelphia Orchestra (Friday) The dynamic conductor Simon Rattle has been intensely involved as chief conductor and artistic director of the great Berlin Philharmonic for over a decade.

SHEIKH ANORAK / ALEX WARD / COLIN WEBSTER + DEAD DAYS BEYOND HELP
Guitarist, Sheik Anorak is the nom de guerre of Frank Garcia, boss of Gaffer Records and lynchpin of the thriving underground scene in Lyon. Last year he teamed up with Led Bib drummer Mark Holub and saxophonist Colin Webster for a short UK tour. It was during this tour that the trio played a wild and frenetic set at The Vortex that was captured for their current live album ‘Languages’. This year they return minus Mark Holub but with the magnificent Alex Ward for another night of raw and uncompromising free jazz.
