GZA to play whole Liquid Swords Album

Dual of the iron mic and shit! Pitchfork reports that GZA will be playing at the McCarren Park Pool next month. Read full below. When GZA unloaded his arsenal of Liquid Swords at last month's Pitchfork Music Festival, it was a mission that some might've characterized as impossible. As he proved, wrecking shit from the tale of the Shogun Assassin through "Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth", and all the Wu-phemera that followed, when he swings his swords, nonbelievers are all choppable. So it shall be again, when GZA takes Swords to the place where stars are born, performing the album in full once again on September 15 at Brooklyn's McCarren Park Pool. And how's this for a little bonus P4K Fest '07 flashback action? Stylish young lad Jamie Lidell will join the Genius on the bill. The show's going down as a benefit for Open Space Alliance, and it's organized by JellyNYC, the folks keeping hipsters off the streets on Sunday afternoons in the summer. Jamie's got a couple dates in Europe in a few weeks, and GZA's out rocking bells with the Wu. All that, after this. Thanks to BrooklynVegan.
