LEE RANALDO (US)
Friday 06.07.12 - 22:00 - Odeon
Lee Ranaldo has been a core member of genre-defining noise rock band Sonic Youth for 30 years. The band is now on hiatus, and it has given Ranaldo time to complete his solo project, which was started back in 2010.
As a guitarist Ranaldo has been at the intersection between experimental minimalism and alternative rock. He recently released his first song-oriented solo album Between The Times And The Tides.
Together with Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and Alan Licht, among others, he has built on a musical universe based on classic, alternative rock. No radio-friendly songs here, but an obvious joy of playing the music he does best.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
