Cubanate “Brutalism 2017” + Empirion + Kanga + Je$us Loves Amerika + Cease2Xsit: O2 Academy Isligton, 30/04/2017- shows review

  It’s almost impossible to write this review objectively and without too much emotion. What happened on this Sunday 30 April was memorable for everyone present. Despite my very high expectations I wasn’t the least disappointed! I arrived to the venue rather early because of the meeting scheduled with Kanga Duchamp and Matthew Setzer; I had the opportunity to spend some time with these two exceptional artists who had flown all the way from USA…

Laibach at Volksbühne 19.04.2017 review

  On this night, the Slovenian group Laibach took over the small atmospheric theatre named Volksbühne situated in the middle of a busy street in Cologne, Germany.

E-Tropolis, 18.03.2017 – TURBINENHALLE OBERHAUSEN (D) – review

  In an industrial area between the modern steel and glass there are still some old brick halls. These have suffered greatly from the time they were empty, but now they have been transformed into a beautiful concert venue. The raw industrial building is an appropriate place for this festival which is organized here for the 4th time. Some previous editions took place in Berlin. The venue consists of the central hall for the register,…
