AMP Concerts presents anarcho-punk heretics Godspeed You! Black Emperor, at Meow Wolf, Sunday, February 27, 2022, 8 p.m. Godspeed You! Black Emperor released a string of albums from 1997-2002 widely recognized as redefining what protest music can be, where longform instrumental chamber rock compositions of immense feeling and power serve as soundtracks to late capitalist alienation and resistance. Following a seven-year hiatus that began in 2003, Godspeed returned to the stage in December 2010 and the band’s post-reunion period has now lasted over a decade, marked by hundreds of sold-out live shows and three additional albums, all of which have been met with high acclaim. Tickets are $42 in advance, $44 day of show. Please be aware that proof of vaccination or negative test is required for entrance. For more information, visit the website, or call 505-886-1251.
