With great passion for their craft, these three young men combine the electrifying drive of rock’n’roll music with booty-shaking funkiness and the healing quality of soul and blues. Their roots go deep into America’s sonic treasure box, sprouting a shoot on today’s branches, swaying in the breeze alongside bands such as Rival Sons or Royal Blood. The heartbeat of the group is a companionship going back more than a decade. Formed in 2019, Circus Electric consists of Oskar, Leo and Adrian – a trio pursuing the joy of speaking a language through their instruments. Their unique sound comes as a result of an intriguing recording process, which takes place in the drummer’s studio, deep in the countryside. After a number of “interesting“ experiences in the music industry, they’ve concluded that the future lies firmly in their own hands. Together with their low-end friend Oskar, the stars finally seemed to align – allowing them to push each other to their best. There’s a distinct energy and sense of adventure in every note shot out of the sonic raygun known as Circus Electric.

————————————————————————-
Emerging from the DIY underground of Barcelona, Belgrado initially traded in a stylish mixture of post-punk tropes that could be traced back to the Europe of the early 1980s. Formed in 2010, Barcelona-based outfit Belgrado has existed at the innovative forefront of the global post-punk scene. Now in their ninth year, the quartet continues to play at home and abroad, carrying with them a reputation built on three full length albums and an impressive touring career that has taken them to all corners of the globe.

The tale is perhaps a well-precedented one: a Welshman, an American, and a Swede move to Berlin and start a post-punk band called PLATTENBAU in a studio housed in the massive former DDR Funkhaus. Hans Tobias, Lewis Lloyd und Brandon Walsh describe their very own sonic can of worms as post-ideological surrealism, the ten songs on their self-titled debut album oscillate between noise, pop and surf.

#sentitinadeguato

A grande (???) richiesta dopo oltre due anni arriva il primo Disagio Party.

In un’atmosfera di totale inadeguatezza, potrai fare da tappezzeria (come del resto hai sempre fatto fino ad oggi) oppure scatenarti rendendoti ridicolo al centro della pista, o ancora farti leggere i tarocchi da una strega in un angolo buio del locale.
Per gli amanti dei trasformismi, angolo travestimenti e make-up pazzerelli e poi via a postare selfie imbarazzanti con hashtag inutili.

Dress-code: difficoltà (s.m.), imbarazzo (s.m.), malessere (s.m.), fastidio (s.m.), impiccio (s.m.), seccatura (s.m.), incomodo (s.m.), mancanza di agi (s.m.), scomodità (s.m.), bisogno (s.m.), povertà (s.m.), miseria (s.m.), privazione (s.m.), carenza (s.m.)

By popular demand (????) after more than two years comes the first Disagio Party.

In an atmosphere of total inadequacy, you can be a wallflower (as you have always done until now) or unleash making yourself ridiculous in the center of the dancefloor, or even get a tarot card reading by a witch in a dark corner of the room. For lovers of transforming, corner disguises and make-up, and then off to post embarrassing selfies with useless hashtags.

Dress-code: difficulty (s.m.), embarrassment (s.m.), malaise (s.m.), discomfort (s.m.), entanglement (s.m.), annoyance (s.m.), uncomfortable (s.), inconvenience (s.m.), lack of comfort (s.m.), discomfort (s.m.), need (s.m.), poverty (s.m.), misery (s.m.), deprivation (s.m.)
