    Alternative Folks #3

    July 8, 2017, 9:00pm - July 8, 2017, 6:00pm

    We're happy to announce the 3rd Alternative Folks night in the Vondelbunker! 4 different bands and projects will perform: -Eva & Cecylia: The blend of acoustic guitar and viola with live electronics resulted in a colorful mix of ambient, psychedelic and experimental sounds. Inspired by an extensive range of artists, their compositions are a naturally shaped reflection on existing music merged with original material. eva-and-cecylia.com -GHOM: A music project involving one viola an one guitar, voice and many percussions. From klezmer traditionals to indie-rock tunes, from country music to turkish rhythms with an experimental touch. All in one word: GHOM! Rob Talin - Guitar, voice, Maya Felixbrodt - Viola, Enric Sana Morera - Clarinets, Yung-tuan ku - Percussion soundcloud.com/ghomband -Omega impact: Their music oscillates between indie folk, folk rock hooking lightly into alternate currents. The lyrics are written in Polish, which is rarely found in this music and gives interesting results in connection with the music created for the project. omegaimpact.bandcamp.com -J. Marinelli: One-man band and lo-fi auteur J Marinelli has toured the US, the UK, Ireland, and mainland Europe extensively; his critically acclaimed fourteenth release "Stop Paying Attention" is available on lovely black vinyl through Twin Cousins Records. jmarinelli.bandcamp.com The idea of this night is to gather alternative bands and underground artists from the territory, in a special venue such as the Vondelbunker of Amsterdam. The event has free admission but we will ask the audience a kind donation for the bands that are performing during the night. Doors open at 9 and first act will start at 9.30pm. Come and Join us!
