The Cinematic Orchestra,
several breakthrough Downtempo Electonica bands that came to prominence
in the late 1990s, is touring across North America in September to
support two albums released this year, "Live At The Big Chill" and

Bimbo’s this Saturday, one night after their show at the El Ray Theater
in Los Angeles.
Created by Jason Swinscoe, The Cinematic
Orchestra has cut several fantastic albums on the widely-respected
indie record label Ninja Tune. Their studio albums "Motion" as well
"Man With a Movie Camera" are considered must-hear material for fans of
Downtempo. Band members also include Tom
Chant (saxophone), Phil France
(double bass), Luke Flowers
(drums), Nick Ramm (piano) and
Stuart McCallum (guitar).
Lounge lizzards can get their chill on beginning at 8 pm on Sept. 15 at
Bimbo’s 365 Club, located at 1025 Columbus Ave in The City. This is an
18-and-up show with a $20 cover. You can buy pre-sale tickets at Ticketweb
or at Bimbo’s box office.
