A Silver Mt. Zion at the Bluebird, May 27, 2008

by

Pollstar let the cat out of the bag: A Silver Mt. Zion is playing the Bluebird on May 27, 2008. Tickets are $13 advance, $15 day of show. Not on sale yet.

ASMZ is from Canada -- and famously features folks from Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the roaring orchestral collective that's influenced everyone from Sigur Ros to Rachel's to countless other atmospheric, droning post-rockers.

Here's a G!YBE Mississippi Nights show from 2003 to download -- which apparently features infamous banter relating to a traffic stop where the band was detained on suspicion of being terrorists. (Scroll up from here.)
