Friday 2 February Punk Night

2 Feb

Let’s get filthy!
Doors open: 22.00, first band: 22.30

DE RAGGERTJES: These youngsters don’t pretend to be anything they’re not; they like to party and get wild! They don’t take themselves too seriously, but they will take you for a seriously wild ride!


VERKRUST: Two crusties from Groningen who just want to make some bloody noise! They recently played as support for Oi Polloi and on February 2nd they’ll bust some eardrums with the release of their new cd!


SLAVERY FARM: They describe themselves as a cohesive tank of crushing brutal loudness with an overwhelming energetic impact. Get ready to be blow away by this musical expression of anger, frustration and despair.

The ORKZ-bar is part of the ORKZ, a legalised squat in the south of Groningen. Located in the old kitchens of the former Roman-Catholic hospital, the bar is run by volunteers, and usually open from 22:00 till late (except mondays and wednesdays).


The ORKZ-bar is not available for rent; try the RKZbios instead.
