Lambchop is a Band “is going to score live a Bill Morrison film produced by Curtas Metragens CRL. Using his found footage re-montage technique, Morrison takes a trip through Portuguese silent films between 1910 and 1930, making use of the abundant archive of the Cinemateca Portuguesa. It will be the world premiere of this filmmaker’s surprising work.”
As part of the Lambchop performing Nixon in its entirety tour early 2015, we are happy to announce their show at National Concert Hall on February 1st in Dublin. Together with acts as Philip Glass, Punch Brothers and Nils Frahm Lambchop will be part of the ‘Perspectives 2015’ series at the National Concert Hall. The band will be supported by Choice Music Prize-winner Adrian Crowley.
In February 2015 it will be 15 years since Lambchop first released their landmark album ‘Nixon’.
The band has decided to present a select number of shows in the UK and Europe to celebrate this anniversary accordingly. Lambchop will perform the record in its entirety, with the focus being on the songs, the band, and its members both past and present. To that end these shows will serve as a tribute to Marc Trovillion, a key founding member of Lambchop who passed away in 2014, as well as a recognition of the contributions of the many musicians and friends, who played on this classic release.
The band looks forward to interacting with the songs through the lens of the sound Lambchop creates today. Pared away from the recording’s ambitious production values, these shows should prove to be a unique and rare opportunity to remember, reconnect with, and reflect upon what is arguably one of Lambchop’s most significant offerings.

“The most fully realized Lambchop record, the most perfect blend yet of their alt country roots and their obsession with soul.” Mojo
