Baha Gratul // Shoom // Fine China Superbone

4 Feb

Saturday February 4th / Doors: 21.30 / First band 22:00 / Bring cash for entrance!

BAHA GRATUL: This neo-psychedelic rockband strongly influences by progressive rock, takes you on a journey to distant countries. They are inspired by bands such as King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Altin Gun and Causa Sui. With this, the real connoisseur directly knows – this is going to be good! Listen to Baha Gratul here.
SHOOM: Shoom is Ukrain for noise, which is a good way to describe the sounds of Shoom: catchy melodies, weird rhythms and noisy riffs. They are inspired by bands as Black Midi, Slint and Don Caballero. Shoom is busy making quite the name for themselves in Groningen, during ESNS they were responsible for turning the Pakhuis into a frenzy of dancing, hot, sweaty people! Listen to Schoom here.
FINE CHINA SUPERBONE: This band formed around the millenium in The Hague. The one thing that has always stayed consistent since then is that China Superbone always puts their love for noiserock and mathrock first! The band is influenced by Dazzling Killmen, Unsane, The Jesus Lizard and Deerhoof. Be ready for complex rhythms, flying drums and a shitload of emotions! Listen to Fine China Superbone here.

SØWT: Noise-rock featuring young icons of the 040 underground scene, expect some real noisy and sad songs! The 3rd of March 2023 they are relasing their very first album, which they will play live the 18th. They played at Orkz in 2018 and made quite an impression. SØWT is known to always put on an interesting and unexpected show. So be there!

Kalaallit Nunaat: Kalaallit Nunaat, founded in 2018 in Rotterdam, combine their love for noise, post-punk, shoegaze and krautrock into a hypnotising wall of sound. With music bestenjoyed in a cold and dark cellar, they accelerate every live show into an ear deafeningcascade of repetitive beats and melodies revelling in a certain discordance. Their debut EP‘Television’ was well received and resulted in a nomination for the Rotterdam Music Awardsand a selection for Popronde 2021.
