Dirty Three plays Lincoln Hall
Australia’s Dirty Three put out a new album, Toward the Low Sun, earlier this year, the band’s first since 2005. This instrumental trio, formed two decades ago, features guitar, drums and violin — probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you mention an Aussie band named Dirty Three. The new album is a mix of hard rock and–more often–much softer moments, featuring violinist/multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis, who also plays with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Cave’s side project, Grinderman. (They also collaborate on film scores.) Mick Turner plays guitar and Jim White plays drums.
