The Holydrug Couple began in Santiago, Chile in 2008, a little over a half-decade after Ives and Manu met for the first time. The two young friends hadn’t seen each other in a few years when Manu texted Ives to tell him that he bought a drum kit. They started jamming, and a week later, the band was formed. A flurry of songwriting activity followed, culminating in 2011’s Ancient Land EP and 2013’s Noctuary, both released on Sacred Bones. Moonlust boldly treads territory that those earlier psych-indebted recordings only hinted at, especially the dreamy French movie soundtracks of the ’70s and ’80s and the discography of Serge Gainsbourg.

10PM Holydrug Couple
DUEL – heavy psychedelic stoner doom metal band from Austin, Texas, USA. Hugely influenced by the darker sounds of early 70’s Proto-metal. Features two ex Scorpion Child (Nuclear Blast) members.
Their sound is menacing and brutally old school. Total purists, their tunes cut right to the bone with heavy, deep groove and blistering tone. Tough and Loud! Hard rock as it should be!
For fans of: Judas Priest, Pentagram, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats

Jerusalem in My Heart was not supposed to be a recorded project, but not isn’t never. The project, fronted by Constellation’s in-house mixer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, began as a live performance involving music as only one part of a larger sensory piece—the full effect was procured with visuals and light projections, a culmination of artforms that actively interacted with setting and audience.
For those of us who’ve never seen Moumneh perform, Mo7it Al-Mo7it provided only a slither of the project’s transient context, especially from an institutionalised Western perspective, where it was interpreted with some degree of xenophobia. Ultimately, though, Moumneh’s change of heart is indicative of his poignant approach to narrative: for a project as non-linear and far-reaching as this one, isolating the music is its own form of improvisation.

DEATH VALLEY GIRLS (USA I Suicide Squeeze Records)
At the core of Death Valley Girls, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Bonnie Bloomgarden and guitarist Larry Schemel channel a modern spin on Fun House’s sonic exorcisms, ZZ Top’s desert-blasted riffage, and Sabbath’s occult menace. On their third and latest album Darkness Rains, Death Valley Girls churn out the hypercharged scuzzy rock every generation yearns for, but there is a more subversive force percolating beneath the surface that imbues the band with an exhilarating cosmic energy.

Call For Rain invites Berlin to gather and dance for the relief of those affected by the bushfires in Australia.
We are currently witnessing the most horrific & catastrophic bushfires to plague the planet.
Thousands of homes have been destroyed or damaged, over 10 million hectares of land have been ravaged, and over 1 billion animals have been estimated to have been killed as a result. Thousands are displaced. Our death toll continues to rise.
This isn’t a national crisis. It’s a global crisis.
For centuries, cultures have practiced rituals in order to Call For Rain, and now we invite you to join us on this evening to come together and dance, and to take part in a collective effort to raise funds for those at the forefront of fighting the fires that continue to burn Australia.
We would like to mention our sister-event that takes place in Tel Aviv, on 01.02.2020 at Sputnik bar. Stay tuned for more details regarding this. We stand for the same cause.
100% of proceeds from this event will be distributed to the following charities;
CFA: Country Fire Association Victoria. (A volunteer & community based fire & emergency services organisation).
Wildlife Victoria. (A wildlife rescue and sheltering association committed to rescuing, rehabilitating & providing equipment for the rescue of wildlife during the bushfires).
We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners and ongoing custodians of the land; past, present and future. We recognise their connection to land, water & culture.
We would like to pay our respects to their Elders past, present, & emerging, as well as all those affected by the catastrophic bushfires.
