Omar Rodriguez Lopez of Mars Volta, At The Drive In & De Facto fame is bringing his solo project to Nottingham to tease and please your ears. Omar has bought a few of his label mates along for the ride - joining him on stage will be Deantoni Parks (on drums) and Teresa Suarez aka Teri Gender Bender from Le Butcherettes (on Vocals) both of which are high profile musicians and stars in their own rights.

Omar Rodriguez Lopez's genre-defying career has resulted in more than 40 albums, a Grammy Award and being deemed among Rolling Stone's "Greatest Guitarists Of All Time." His seminal and critically acclaimed band, At the Drive-In, redefined popular rock music at the end of the last decade. Since that time, in addition to being both a solo artist and leader/composer/producer of the The Mars Volta, Rodriguez Lopez has produced groundbreaking recordings for the likes of Juliette Lewis, Le Butcherettes and collaborated with Hans Zimmer, John Frusciante, and Erykah Badu, to name a few.
