17 Nov

Doors open: 22.00 / First band: 22.30 / BAR = CASH ONLY! / Invite your friends!

Pothamus: Tribalesque sludge / post-rock trio from Belgium. Pothamus creates their own world, both on stage and off stage.. Every concert is a collective search for meaning. Intrigued yet? Listen to them here.

PSYCHONAUT: This psychedelic post-metal collective from Mechelen, Belgium was in the ORKZ BAR last year and made quite an impression! PSYCHONAUT delivers a constantly compelling live show that grabs you by the throat from the first second to the last… Contrast and variation are the two main anchors on which they base their musical ideas. Raw, convincing and designed to create a perpetually fascinating experience, often combining their wall of sound with intense visual landscapes and light shows by like-minded artists. They just released their debut full album – ‘Unfold The God Man’. This new album is an intricate concept album dealing with strong philosophical and existential themes, ultimately describing mankind’s re-ascension to a higher level of consciousness. Come and experience it with us!

Listen to them here: Spotify, youtube, bandcamp.

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.
