Delicious Danes Efterklang are to 'do an Ash' (pick your own retrospecting band of choice, there) in September, performing their much-acclaimed Parades album of 2007 in full, from start to finish.
The performance - an echo of ATP's successful Don't Look Back series which has seen the likes of Mudhoney, Low, Sonic Youth, Isis and The Melvins perform an album from their past in full - takes place in Copenhagen on September 26; the band will be backed by the Danish Radio Sinfonietta.
What that means: over 60 musicians will be on stage, bringing Parades (review) to life like it never has been before. If you can get a ticket to this one-off event, which will be recorded at DR Byen (home of the Danish Broadcasting Service) DiS suggests you do so. Details in full:
