Nels Cline and Julian Lage are guitar wizards, kindred spirits who love guitars and guitar music and exploring the vast possibilities of collaboration and improvisation.
Nels and Julian have a new album, room, a collection of originals and collaborative pieces that run from intricately composed and complex to free and spontaneous. Join these two guitar wizards for an evening of thrilling music at the Freight!

Nels is a major force as a guitarist and improviser. Named by Rolling Stone as one of 20 “new guitar gods” and one of the top 100 guitarists of all time, he has gained his widest fame as a member of Wilco. He's known for a certain cranked-up experimental mayhem, the kind sometimes heard from his extraordinary trio the Nels Cline Singers, which released the well-received Macroscope earlier this year. But throughout his career, Cline has undertaken projects, sometimes acoustic or semi-acoustic duos, highlighting an intimate and reflective approach that's just as central to his artistry.
At just 26, Julian has taken the world of jazz guitar by storm. The New York Times hails the "disarming spirit of generosity" in his music and notes the young guitarist's "roots tangled up in jazz, folk, classical, and country music." In addition to his work with Mark O'Connor, the late Jim Hall, Anthony Wilson, and a great many others, Julian leads his own groundbreaking groups as documented on the albums Gladwell and Sounding Point, the latter earning him a Grammy nomination.
