DUO NIGHT – Grunge/Garagerock/Dirty blues

25 Mar

Saturday 25 March
Doors open: 22.00 First band: 22.30
We put together a night of the 3 best duo’s we could find!!
– DEWALD: Inspired by The Thermals, Smashing Pumpkins, Death From Above 1979 and Placebo, this duo from Amsterdam makes grungy garagerock’n roll. Their tight rocksongs, combined with rough melodic vocals make DEWALD’s sound unique. After the amps are turned on, the energetic vibe will blast off stage!
– THE SHADY GREYS: The Shady Greys are an Amsterdam based dirty blues-garage duo. They provide a unique sound with their lo-fi approach, using only a cajon and feet played percussions (no drums!). They’re all about rough guitar riffs, raw vocals and high energy.
BLACKBOXRED: This is one boy/girl duo who aren’t dealing in cute and cuddly lo-fi! The moment the duo steps on the podium they become BlackboxRed. A heavily crushing grunge steamroller. She sings and plays the guitar, he drums!
