Slip Inside This Club Vol. 1


pe 22.3.2013 klo 21-04 | Bar Loose, Helsinki | Liput 13/15 €

Blow Up That Gramophone ja Psychotropic Caravan yhdessä Bar Loosen kanssa ryhtyvät täyttämään doom metalin, psykedeelisen rockin ja niitä läheltä liippaavien alagenrejen klubitarjonnassa olevaa aukkoa. Maaliskuussa starttaava Slip Inside This Club tarjoaa alkuillasta kovan kaliiberin live-esiintyjiä, joiden jälkeen klubin tiskijukat tanssittavat juhlaväkeä aamuyön tunneille asti.

Ensimmäisen klubin pääesiintyjänä nähdään Conan. Brittibändi julkaisi huhtikuussa kehutun debyyttipitkäsoittonsa ja esiintyi maineikkaalla Roadburn-festivaalilla Hollannissa. Repetitiivistä doom metalia soittavan trion musiikissa murskaavan raskas kitaravalli yhdistyy barbaarimaisen rytmisektion jyräykseen. Monnos-pitkäsoitto on vuoden parhaita alan julkaisuita ja bändin keikat ovat äärimmäisen massiivisia kokemuksia.

Illan avaa rumpalin ja kahden säröisen basson voimalla primitiivistä doomia soittava Horse Latitudes. Helsinkiläisbändi on lämmitellyt aiemmin muun muassa Saint Vitusta, Jex Thothia sekä Master Musicians of Bukkakea.

Orkestereiden jälkeen Slip Inside This Club dj:t soittavat vinyyleiltä 60- ja 70-luvun klassikoita yhdistettynä tuoreempiin meneviin psych, space ja stoner rock -biiseihin aina puoli neljään asti.

Liput maksavat 13 euroa ja ennakkomyynti alkaa keskiviikkona 12. joulukuuta Tiketissä. Ovelta liput maksavat 15 euroa. Bändien jälkeen Slip Inside This Clubille pääsee eteispalvelumaksun hinnalla.

Hidria Spacefolk, Tombstoned, Seremonia...

Phew... What a night last night. After some technical problems Hidria Spacefolk rocked the astral plane @ Tavastia. Also bought their new album on vinyl for 20€. Then I hurried to Korjaamo to see Tombstoned, a fresh stoner rock band that I also really liked. Seremonia followed, and they were super charged with occult psychedelic proto-metal energy! Absolute mayhem.
