Started in the summer of 2012 Dagger Moth is the lonesome project of Sara Ardizzoni, eclectic guitarist (by choice) and singer (by chance). A kind of one-woman-band, weaving together electric guitar, some minimal electronics, noises, loops and vocals in a weird balance of structure, melody and chaos. Dagger Moth has performed at many different venues (clubs, festivals, houseconcerts, gardens, theatres, museums…) and had the pleasure to play as an opening act for Fennesz, Marc Ribot, Mike Watt, Peter Hook, Shannon Wright, Pumajaw, Sam Amidon, Hugo Race and Keziah Jones. Some recent collaborations: with the L.A based band Double Naught Spy Car (for their latest album “Moof” along with guests such as Mike Watt and Nels Cline); with Cesare Basile (with whom Sara has also performed at the Primavera Sound Festival 2018 in Barcelona); with Philippe Petit (for a double remix of a Dagger Moth track); with Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine) for a cover version of the Simon & Garfunkel classic “the Sound of silence”. In November 2021 a new collaboration starts with the Mats Gustafsson’s Fire!Orchestra CBA . Besides her solo-set, Sara is currently touring as a guitarist with two italian bands: Massimo Volume and Cesare Basile e i Caminanti.
