On Sunday March 19th Dave Rempis, Fred Lonberg-Holm and Paal Nilssen Love once again will hit DE Studio hard with a 2 set Ballister show. And there’s a good reason why this ultimate power improv trio returns to Antwerp. March 19th is the official release date of the Ballister lp/dvd Low Level Stink (edition of 300) on our own Dropa Disc label, recorded at DE Studio during Ballister’s superb and sold out Oorstof show in 2015. It’s a back to back release with Ballister’s Slag cd, recorded the day after the Antwerp show at Cafe OTO and released on Aerophonic. And there’s more Dropa Disc news. March 19th is also the official release date of the PEN cd on Dropa Disc (edition of 500), the first ever release of the stellar trio of Evan Parker, John Edwards and Steve Noble, recorded in 2015 at their Oorstof show at Zuiderpershuis. So don’t hesitate and make sure you reserve a spot for this memorable event. Going by the pre-orders we already received for both Ballister: Low Level Stink and Slag, and Parker, Edwards, Noble: PEN it might be wise to pre-order a copy of either one of them or all three releases while you are at it. Just add your request when making a reservation by mailing us here !
