Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog
@ Le Poisson Rouge

Listed under "projects" on Marc Ribot's website is Ceramic Dog. Listed under Ceramic Dog at #4 is "Not a 'project': a real band." And indeed it is a real band and a heck of a 
conundrum with no need for justification.
Comprised of Ribot (Guitars), Shahzad Ismaily (Bass et al.) and Ches Smith (Drums), 
Ceramic Dog is a raucously vibrant race between some perspicacious musical minds. No 
one needs to understand it all. Ceramic Dog is a mad motioning of contrapuntal and 
contrapunktal and Ribot is a guitar playing a guitar playing a guitar.

Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog played at Le Poisson Rouge as part of the Undead Jazz Festival.
