Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta fame has announced the U.S. live debut for the Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group in September, directly following performing at the Metamorphose Festival in Japan. Tickets for the handful of dates went on sale last week and the NYC date is already sold out, if that is any indication of the level of excitement for these dates. The Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group for these performances feature Ximena Sarinana Rivera, Juan Alderete De La Pena (The Mars Volta), Marcel Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, Zechs Marquise) and Deantoni Parks.
A little background info on Rodriguez Lopez: he is a Grammy-winning recording artist whose fifteen-year career has resulted in 35 albums. In addition to being both a solo artist and leader/composer/producer of the The Mars Volta, Rodriguez Lopez has produced groundbreaking recordings for the likes of Juliette Lewis and collaborated with Hans Zimmer, John Frusciante and Erykah Badu, to name a few. Additionally, his Rodriguez Lopez Productions continues to release bold and innovative recordings, including upcoming releases from Le Butcherettes, Zechs Marquise, The Eternals, Big Sir and Vato Negro. That's what I call burning a candle at both ends and with three wicks in the middle.
