The shows at Black Iris Gallery just keep getting better.

Baltimore-based electronic duo Matmos will be performing at Black Iris Gallery this Monday, Nov.2 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 or $6 for students and they're available at Steady Sounds record store.

Also, the duo will give a lecture at VCU's The Depot on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 4 p.m.

From the Facebook event page:

The ground breaking electronic duo is known for their innovative integration of musique concrete to more popular forms of dance music with a bend towards the avant grade. In addition to their own work, they've received popular and critical recognition for their collaboration with Icelandic singer and musician Björk, both on studio recordings and live tours.

After many years on Matador records, Matmos now calls Thrill Jockey home. The duo has also been embraced by the fine art community as well playing many exhibitions including the Whitney Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art. Most recently, they have been part of the ensemble for the Robert Wilson production "The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic", featuring Marina Abramovic, Antony and Willem Dafoe. Their most recent album, The Marriage of True Minds, was released in 2013 by Thrill Jockey Records.

The duo will be giving a lecture at VCU's The Depot on Tuesday, November 3rd at 4PM.
