Om to play “At Giza” a Temple of Dendur Ruins at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York

Om is a duo that was formed by Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius, who were the rhythm section for legendary stoner doom band "Sleep" (although Emil Amos of Grails has replaced Hakius on drums in Om in 2009.)  Their second full-length album Conference of Birds consisted of two songs, the first of which was titled "At Giza."  The band have announced that they will play their track At Giza on July 19th in front of the remains of the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitain Museum of Art in New YorkThis is perhaps one of the most fitting backdrops for a concert ever, I wonder if they can get Nile and reunite Gaza to open for them?
