Musik   thirsty & miserable: Mysterious Priestess (Progressive Metal, Tokyo) + Gorilla Mask (Avant-Thrash-Jazz, Berlin)

doors 19:00 - show 20:00
- Formed in 2010, Mystery Priestess is a progressive metal band
made up of two members in Tokyo.
Initially a Nordic-based, melodious sound, the sound shifted with the change of members in 2017.
In addition to the creative view of the world and Japanese mythology which the band has based its music on up to now, we have expanded melodic death metal to incorporate elements of other genres, as evidenced by their contemporary harmonies and rhythms.

Kei Koganemaru (Guitar & Vocal, from Koenji Hyakkei)
Shu Akimoto (Drums, from DC/PRG)

- Ground-shaking grooves, hammering rhythms and wailing melodies, layered with explosive no-holds-barred improvisations: GORILLA MASK is a type of sonic madness roaring with a restless, implacable energy that totters dangerously on the verge of total chaos. They craft spirals of sound in 4 or 5 dimensions, jabbing you in the ribs as they mess with your brain; the ebb and flow of an acutely aware trio of musicians who know what they want and know how to get it. Canadian ex-pat Peter Van Huffel is a saxophonist out of Coltrane, Ayler and Zorn, but he frames his improvisational forays in the context of a trio with hard rock dynamics, riding the churn of Roland Fidezius' frenetic bass and Rudi Fischerlehner's pulsating drum kit like a surfer on the biggest wave he’s ever seen.

GORILLA MASK is the product of a constantly active, hyper-intelligent hive-mind of three virtuosos; their music a mishmash of punk, rock and metal influences rooted in jazz, free-improvisation and the modern avant-garde. A collision of styles which form the key to the band's identity. This is bold, audacious 21st Century improvised music writ huge, with innumerable influences and tendencies, gritty and urban, intellectual and ready to run a marathon.

Musik   READY STEADY GO: Harvey Rushmore & the Octopus (Garage/Surf/Psychedelic) und Los Chicos del Pantano (Swamp Beats/Garage Punk)

On the high sea. In the moon light. Red. Blood Moon. Blood red are the lips of the girl which Harvey is thinking of while the waves are flowing. Melody, oh Melody… soon… and Rushmore rushes. In blood rush. He has it in his blood, in his veins pumping in the rhythm of the rattling of the engine. rattling and snarling, a floating beat. The waves are beating heavy against the boat while the wind is breathing cold. The octopus appears suddenly in front of his boat, and Harvey knows, that’s the moment he’s been waiting for, all or nothing and nothing else. He doesn’t care about tomorrow, just now. Harvey falls in a rush, a blood rush under the red moon with the octopus. And the dance on the edge, above the deep, starts with a heavy sound…
Harvey Rushmore & the Octopus are an audiovisual adventure, a rock’n’roll exploitation flick, a dime novel, written in a breathless beat and full of distorted cliff hangers, edgy nude scenes and desperate late night bar fights. There’s everything in Harvey Rushmore & the Octopus, what the underground art of the 60’s and 70’s had to offer.
They are keeping rock’n’roll from his self-castration, with a seducing mix of garage, surf, psychedelic and kraut rock. They’ll let you sweat, dance and leave you breathless, full of desire.

Los Chicos del Pantanoare a Berlin-based band, their rebel style takes inspiration from styles like Garage Fuzz, Rockabilly and Underground Rock.
Their songs in Spanish tell us about a place where we can go to live our strangest desires and dreams: el Pantano.

Los Chicos del Pantano sind eine Berliner Band. Ihr rebellischer Stil bezieht seine Inspiration aus verschiedenen Musikrichtungen wie Garage Fuzz, Rockabilly und Underground Rock.
Die spanisch-sprachigen Texte verheißen einen Ort, wo wir in unseren tiefsten Wünschen und Träumen versinken können: el Pantano.

Musik   Fourtrack On Stage: Yoko OK (Indie/Antifolk, US) + Elspeth Anne (Folk/Alt-Country/Riot Grrl)

+ DJ Hamlet!
Yoko OK is the solo project of Yoko Oji Kikuchi. Yoko is a NYC-to-Bay transplant, language student, songwriter and basement dweller. Growing up in New York, she performed and toured with a professional children's chorus, and at age 13 she fell in love with lady-fronted rock bands, punk music, and playing the guitar. From 2004-2009 she co-fronted the NYC-based band Dream Bitches; from 2012-2017 she performed in and toured with the Oakland deathrock band Bitter Fruit.

Immediacy, her fifth "solo" album (or the band's debut), is about recovery and the breaking of destructive cycles, uncertainty, solidarity, the romance of friendship, and growing up.

Elspeth Anne has been active as a musician since 2005, performing and recording as a solo artist and band leader of Milkteeth, Twitch & Shout and current band Cabin Music. She self-released a handful of EPs before putting out a full length solo album ‘Thieves Again’ with Woodland Recordings a few years back, which she has been touring around the UK & Europe. A second album is due for release in summer 2019, if she can work out how to mix it.
Elspeths sound is a combination of British folk-music traditions & alt country with a lot of riot grrl influence.

Mit Jamaican Jazz und handfesten Reggae-Grooves bringen  Wood In Di Fire bei ihren Live-Sessions die Dancehall zum Toben.

Doch  der Session-Gedanke ist  immer noch lebendig: Die Bandmitglieder und Gäste bringen die verschiedensten Einflüsse aus Reggae, Jazz, Ska, Latin und Afro-Beat mit und sorgen damit immer wieder für überraschende Kicks.
Seit das Projekt im Jahre 2000 startete, spielt Wood In Di Fire traditionell im Berliner „Schokoladen“. Der bis heute monatlich stattfindende Reggae-Jam wurde schnell vom Geheimtipp zum etablierten Termin der Berliner Reggae-Szene.

Band description and links:


Tentacular Extra-Instrumenterrestrial Funkadelic Strawberry Acid Jam Hyperloop | Belfast, NIR, UK |
New LP 'Smile' (2019):

INTO THE SPIRAL. Since 2016 having released a ton of DIY records dripping in Blues, Cool Jazz, Funk, Psych and 70s Acid Prog, especially with their first adventurous LP 'This Is Our Culture' the Irish trio in Electric Octopus became known as an exciting, musical cabal of intense, instrumental and cosmic jamming par excellence. What this band does is something others so easily fail at: The ability to find the center, build around it, spiral out, swoop back in - and nearly give the listener the feeling of earthly abandonment. Their sound captures the essence of a historic past, conjuring up ghosts from Jimi Hendrix' 'Electric Ladyland', from Neal Casal's 'Circles Around the Sun' or Al Kooper's 'Super Session' while bringing it back into the here and now - effortlessly, timelessly, without flaws and strikingly fresh. Music for the perfect road trip. Or love making session.Just craeting this smile with delight!

FFO: Funkadelic, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd, Peter Green
