HOW YES NO is a post punk/art punk/wave power trio from Zagreb, Croatia. Their songs, short, chaotic and straight to the point are reminiscent of MinuteMan and Big Boys. The band itself was formed during lockdown in 2020 but the band members are seasoned street cats of the DIY/punk scene. The real life was given to the band in 2022 when the EP ''Small talk'' was released along with the music video for the song ''Under the rug''. Ready to embark on their second European tour, they are hitting the road to Germany, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Hungary and Croatia. If you like being confused and amused, check them out!

VILLAGES is a post punk band based in Dresden, Germoney.
They're really into 80´s synths, delayed guitars and a lot of wires.

»Perhaps Villages base their sound upon fundamentals of eighties post-punk, but you’ll […] also notice some of the finest properties of contemporary indie, synth, and alternative music roaming around in the mix. It is a complex album from scratch to finish […].
Villages perfectly balance between a nearly cathartic, relaxing, calm ambiance and dynamic sequences where each instrument bursts with sheer energy.« -Thoughts Words Action-

Kara Delik (Anatolian Kraut/exp. Postpunk - Rec-Release-Show) + Güner Künier (Turkish Lofi/Psychedelic/Synthwave/Postpunk)
doors 19:00 - show 20:00

Kara Delik combines driving yet complex rhythms, gritty basslines and hints of traditional Turkish folk music. Inspired by the Anatolian rock music of the 70's, German Krautrock and Punk of the 80s, and their diverse experiences in Berlin's lively off-culture. At times experimental, post-punk, with a touch of shoe-gaze, they bring a new perspective to alternative music in the city.

Kara Delik are Baris Öner - Saz/Vocals (previously Istanbul Ghetto Club), Andi Sommer - bass/synth/ vocals (Henry Fonda, Afterlife Kids, Yacht Communism), and Eilis Frawley - drums/vocals (Anika, Laura Lee & The Jettes, I Drew Blank). Coincidental kitchen encounters and the entanglements of the Berlin DIY scene brought them together in the summer of 2020, releasing their debut EP “Tamam” in 2022.

Güner Künier has a minimalist style, deploying her voice over old school and industrial drums infused with lo-fi guitar and synthesizer sounds. Her debut album also invokes a psychedelic 70s vibe, although it's been adapted for the present day. You'll also find some synthwave tracks and Turkish lyrics in there. It features a great mix of genres which leads to a unique, emotional style. Her stunning live performances over the past few years have also sent strong and promising signals and she is still playing live a lot.
So, make sure you catch her show and get a tape of her latest release.

Debut Album „Aşk” »funded by Musicboard Berlin GmbH« 2022 and released at the Berlin Label “Mommys Mistakes” on Tape.

AkediA (Black´n´stoned Doom Metal) 

Das Innsbrucker Duo AkediA aus Schlagzeug und Bass zelebriert unterirdische Schallwellen irgendwo zwischen Stoner Metal, Punk und Sludge. Dabei äußern sie sich politisch-kritisch, doch  vor allem misantrophisch. AkediAs erster Longplayer „Schlafes Bruder" ist nicht nur allen Doomheads wärmstens ans Herz gelegt

P.O. Box (Ska-Punk from Nancy) + Skamarley (Skapunk from Berlin)

We could simply list the countries they toured, from Canada to Japan, from Turkey to Russia and
throughout Europe. Or recall the more than 800 shows they played.
Or list all the bands they share the stage with, such as Anti-Flag, Mad Caddies, Streetlight
Manifesto, No Use For A Name, Lagwagon, Against Me!, A Whilhem Scream, The Aquabats or RX
Bandits among others.
Or mention the festivals they played, such as Dour, Wasted, Groezrock, Open Flair, Tells Bells, Jera
On Air, Mighty Sounds Festival or PunkRockHolidays.
We could also mention their friendship with Big D & the Kids Table, The Flatliners or the Slackers,
featured on their records.
All this would tell a bit of the P.O.Box story.
But this only say little about who P.O.BOX is in the end...
P.O.BOX is out of fashion. By dint of detours through the steep roads of rock, P.O.BOX makes its
own way. Their live performances are often pretexts for creating temporary zones of autonomy
with the audience, and their albums are regularly born from a desire and need to bear witness to a situation that needs to be deciphered.
“Learning to read between the lines and moving forward, together.”

ROBOCOBRA QUARTET has a rule: “No Guitars Allowed”. Their unique sound, concocted and self-produced in Belfast, Northern Ireland sees that ‘middle’ space filled by other instruments such as saxophones, samplers, keyboards and sound effects swirling around the melodic basslines and powerful drum rhythms which prop up the core of each of their songs. On top of this music sits a single vocal from behind the drum kit amid a fury of rhythm, sometimes marrying perfectly with the pulse of the drums and occasionally at complete odds with it.

Experimentation is at the core of Robocobra Quartet, whether it be in the fluid line-up (six musicians tagging in and out to make up the live touring quartet) or in their unique self-produced records made in their hometown of Belfast, Northern Ireland. These juxtapositions are just the beginning of the complex world of Robocobra Quartet - a band serious about their music but humorous in their approach, including members with no musical training alongside members with music conservatoire pedigree. The result is a collective of musicians inspired by Stravinsky and Black Flag in equal measures.

On stage, the band are protons and electrons circling drummer-vocalist Chris W Ryan; meticulous arrangements and on-the-spot improvisations hang on every word spoken, sung and shouted by Ryan. These words and rhythms are what propel the music of Robocobra Quartet forward and concoct a sound that is groove-driven but cerebral too, invoking the likes of Fugazi, Talking Heads and contemporaries such as Black Midi, Squid and BadBadNotGood.

The free nature of the band's live shows led to them being embraced early on by jazz fanatics just as much as rock fans - once finding themselves in Europe touring a jazz club one night, a house show the next and a pop festival the night after that. These unmatched live performances often channel-hop from moments of joy and playfulness to periods of intense fury, earning the band invitations to Montreux Jazz Festival, Latitude Festival and as far as Inversia Festival in the polar north of Russia whilst receiving acclaim from the likes of The Quietus, Jazzwise and BBC Radio 6.
