Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group announces U.S. live debut in September

The phenomenally productive artist Omar Rodriguez Lopez has announced the U.S. live debut for the Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group in September, directly following performing at the Metamorphose Festival in Japan. Tickets went on sale this week for the four shows listed below. The NYC date is already sold out. The Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group for these performances feature Ximena Sarinana Rivera, Juan Alderete De La Pena (The Mars Volta), Marcel Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, Zechs Marquise) and Deantoni Parks.

Hand-picked support for these dates will be the massively buzzed-about Le Butcherettes from Guadalajara, Mexico, whose forthcoming U.S. debut album Sin Sin Sin was produced by Omar. The group also tours Europe and Russia with Le Butcherettes in November. 

Omar Rodriguez Lopez is an intensely prolific Grammy-winning recording artist whose genre-defying, fifteen-year career has resulted in some 35 albums. 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 and collaborated with Hans Zimmer, John Frusciante, and Erykah Badu, to name a few. Additionally, his Rodriguez Lopez Productions continues to release bold and innovative recordings, including upcoming releases from Le Butcherettes, Zechs Marquise, The Eternals, Big Sir and Vato Negro
