‘One​ ​of​ ​the​ ​best​ ​and​ ​most​ ​original​ ​guitarists​ ​in​ ​America’​ ​​-Rolling​ ​Stone ‘One​ ​of​ ​the​ ​100​ ​Greatest​ ​Living​ ​Guitarists’​ ​​-Classic​ ​Rock
‘The​ ​Thinking​ ​Man’s​ ​Guitar​ ​Hero​ ​—​ ​A-List’​ ​​-The​ ​New​ ​Yorker ‘Legendary​ ​left-field​ ​guitarist’​​ ​​-The​ ​Guardian

‘​The​ ​world’s​ ​most​ ​popular​ ​Avant-rock​ ​guitarist’​ ​​-The​ ​Independent

Gary​ ​Lucas​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​innovation,​ ​idiosyncratic​ ​and​ ​daring​ ​guitarists​ ​that​ ​New​ ​York, America,​ ​the​ ​world​ ​has​ ​ever​ ​produced.​ ​Still​ ​a​ ​pivotal​ ​figure​ ​in​ ​the​ ​the​ ​city’s​ ​leading​ ​avant-garde scene​ ​his​ ​30​ ​solo​ ​LP​ ​output,​ ​plus​ ​countless​ ​collaborations​ ​and​ ​live​ ​performances​ ​now​ ​hold​ ​the the​ ​American​ ​composer,​ ​author,​ ​guitarist​ ​in​ ​worldwide​ ​praise​ ​as​ ​one​ ​of​ ​music’s​ ​true​ ​greats.

Gary​ ​infamously​ ​worked​ ​with​ ​a​ ​plethora​ ​of​ ​legendary​ ​American​ ​artists​ ​—​ ​notably​ ​the​ ​late​ ​greats Jeff​ ​Buckley​ ​(which​ ​whom​ ​he​ ​wrote​ ​timeless​ ​classics​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Grace​ ​and​ ​Mojo),​ ​Captain Beefheart​ ​(fulfilling​ ​his​ ​lifetime​ ​ambition​ ​of​ ​becoming​ ​a​ ​member​ ​of​ ​The​ ​Magic​ ​Band),​ ​Lou​ ​Reed and​ ​Nick​ ​Cave.

In​ ​this​ ​unique,​ ​insightful​ ​and​ ​personal​ ​show​ ​Gary​ ​will​ ​project​ ​rare​ ​archival​ ​footage​ ​of​ ​him​ ​with Buckley​ ​and​ ​Beefheart,​ ​spin​ ​unreleased​ ​tracks​ ​of​ ​his​ ​works​ ​with​ ​his​ ​many​ ​collaborators​ ​and discuss​ ​his​ ​wider​ ​career​ ​and​ ​writings​ ​in​ ​great​ ​depth.

Throughout​ ​the​ ​show​ ​Gary​ ​will​ ​play​ ​live​ ​renditions​ ​of​ ​the​ ​much​ ​loved​ ​songs​ ​he​ ​co-wrote​ ​as​ ​well as​ ​choice​ ​works​ ​from​ ​his​ ​formidable,​ ​original​ ​back-catalogue​ ​–​ ​each​ ​song​ ​given​ ​context​ ​by​ ​form of​ ​introduction,​ ​musings​ ​and​ ​memories​ ​shared.

Armed​ ​with​ ​his​ ​legendary​ ​1966​ ​Fender​ ​Stratocaster​ ​and​ ​1942​ ​Gibson​ ​J-45,​ ​Gary​ ​will​ ​delve​ ​into his​ ​vast​ ​repertoire​ ​of​ ​instrumentals,​ ​lm​ ​music,​ ​30s​ ​Chinese​ ​pop,​ ​country​ ​blues,​ ​covers​ ​of​ ​the Rolling​ ​Stones​ ​and​ ​of​ ​course,​ ​improvisations.

New​ ​solo​ ​album​ ​‘​Pori​ ​Boy​ ​Long​ ​Way​ ​from​ ​Home’​ ​out​ ​Spring​ ​2018.
