CAMERA

Krautpunk [Thursday] [21:40]

Known for its hacking of official ceremonies and other impromptu concerts in public spaces, preferably long and noisy, Camera was quickly given the label "guerilla krautrock". Since then, there have been 3 albums, world tours and recognition as notable as his strike force.
In live, it is indeed a flow of sound lava that the German trio, guitars in front and drums in rut, pours into our electrified ears. Beware of collective hallucination!

BLEIB MODERN

Vague de froid [Saturday] [23:25]

Black is black, I want my baby back: cold wave of the most cavernous, mixing pain and pleasure - if they ever have any. The Germans of Bleib Modern will also activate the darkest corners of your psychedelic tendencies. Mechanical percussions and visceral voices take over haunting bass lines and riffs that pierce the air, the soul and the speakers.

Website

MARIETTA

Rock'n'Folk [Friday] [22:00]

Mister Hyde fallen from the French song, he is confused by his compositions mixing the sublime and the dirty, passion and bitterness. As a group on stage, Marietta transforms her tender albums into a live habited and nonchalant where everything is tumultuous and voluptuous.

Website

HEY COLOSSUS

Engin rock [Saturday] [21:40]

Hey Colossus is on the way to becoming mythical, with his massive noise-rock experiments, always mastered and surprisingly accessible. Installed for 15 years, the English sextet continues to grow and will honour us with a rare concert in France. Their latest album "The Guillotine" was released last year on Rocket Recording

Website

VICTIME

Non-wave [Saturday] [20:50]

New October Tone signature from Quebec City!
Post-punk franco in search of lost respect, irreverent hotline for assistance to victims of the ordinary and everyday. Influenced by Sonic Youth and the heads of Riot grrrl (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), inspired by the New York scene of the 80s, these three well-made heads advance at the same time by making the collective triumph.

Website

AMOR BLITZ

Pop kaléidoscope [Friday] [23:30]

Unsuitable and sloppy, Amor Blitz is a certain idea of French pop: she caresses herself with boxing gloves and fights at the bottom of silk.
Combining saffroned song, krautrock yéyé and kaleidoscopic crafts, the group picks itself up with jangly chords and snags to rhythms sometimes turbo, sometimes back seat. An highway of neo-romantic landscapes carried by the dreamlike texts of the hacker of the heart Emmanuel Szczygiel.

Website

T/O

Ufo Psypop [Sunday] [01:15]

Assuming its eccentricity and borderline desires, like the great freaks of music, T/O has written a new page of hallucinated music with his first album Ominous Signs released this year. and for the moment, psychedelic rock seems to be too reductive a term to describe Théo Cloux's twirling music that asserts an uppercut to rock monotony. Completely knocked out.

Website

PARTOUT PARTOUT

Action-aventure [Saturday] [20:00]

Tight loops, nervous drums and erratic structures fill in their large soundscape of wobbling noisy patterns and cartoonish heavy guitar riffs. PARTOUT PARTOUT is a dangerously easy-listening but hilariously loud experience with tons of sonic waves of naive creativity blended with spectacular skills, authenticity and lots, lots, lots of humor. FFO: Adventure Time, Kindergarden songs, Pneu, Noise Rock for toddlers, Mathrock for babies in technoclubs.

Website

HERMETIC DELIGHT

Pop supernova [Thursday] [23:40]

In the realm of duality, Hermetic Delight has nothing to envy of its elders. Within five years of existence, the quintet from Strasbourg (France) has come to deal with its influences - Sonic Youth, Siouxsie, Pixies - thanks to more than a hundred concerts and three EPs.
Noisy pop, post punk, shoegaze, the label matters very little. With sharpened guitars, incantatory vocals and fearless rhythms, the *gang of five* composes their tracks under the knife in order to keep what matters most : emotion.
For one month, the band went under complete lockdown in the Hall des Chars in Strasbourg, equipped with their instruments and an analog mixing console, to produce 7 crafted tracks. The composition has matured, the writing is more intimate. Evolution, not revolution: the power of instruments, even vocal, and the accuracy of kicks are there once again. From raw elegance to sensitive fury.

Website

PAUWELS

Fausse Noise [Friday] [21:10]

A disciple of Gurdjieff,
a quote from Bergier,
quartz's chemical composition,
matches' fonction,
description of an overflowed river,
eye drops for the cyclone,
John Merrick existed!
Paradiddle or mill?
How LONG it is?
Who wants frustration?
Why about never met each other so we won't share any regret?

Choosing a writer's name for a music without words, without palaver, arouses its share of mystery. This apparent paradox takes on its meaning through Pauwels' particular configuration: a set of machines at the heart of the rhythm, to which are added a bass and two guitars that weave a story, and draw landscapes. An esoteric musical construction, built to be deconstructed. A communion with the audience, in a search for a shared trance. Pauwels cultivates the unexpected.

Website

HASSAN K

One Shaman Band [Sunday] [02:15]

Hassan K is a mystical one man band from Persia. DIY artist, Hassan mixes folklore and new technologies, occident and orient, surf music and bellydance, swing and heavy metal… in crazy live acts, not too far from transe.
With a guitar, a keyboard and a few sensors, he travels from the west kingdom to the Turan, spreading the words of his illuminated ancestors…

Website

OD BONGO

IDM Tribale [Friday] [00:25]

OD Bongo is the meeting between the dry rhythms of Somaticae and the noise fury of the C_C grooves.
Immersed in the middle of the audience, the duo offers a long rhythmic track and envelops the spectator in a bubble of noise and wild bass music.

TÖFIE

Sainte Antipop [Saturday] [22:35]

Töfie takes the hairpin turns: her mutant electronica, her dark synth-wave is carried by industrial sounds and borrows from very pop formats. A whole ecosystem of organic and telluric sounds confronted with raw and aggressive digital sounds, which will undoubtedly remind us of those of Gary Numan or Fever Ray.
Texts in English, Icelandic, German and French accompany the exploration of synthesizers and acoustic recordings transposed to sharp, soft and totally versatile rhythms.

Website

GOLDEN ORIOLE

Antifunk [Thursday] [22:50]

This Norwegian duo combines funk and purgatory in rhythmic tocades that are both relaxed and tense, of an impossible elasticity.
The drummer's stainless steel mechanics, a metronomic monster with a terrifying groove, leaves it up to the guitarist to pour malleable and regularly... irregular riffs.
Golden Oriole's music acts as a blinding flash, a living source absorbing all kinds of will, thought and reflection.

Website

SESPERISI

Synth pride [Friday] [00:40]

Sesperisi, or the Berlin pride float embodied by the performer Özgür Erkök Moroder. The Turkish multidisciplinary artist depicts the daily life and politics of the genre in an extravagant costume, leading a dance that is both macabre and post-apocalyptic.

Website

FUN FUN FUNERAL

Freak Folk [Thursday] [20:45]

In the prolific AB Records family, Fun Fun Funeral subtly courted the dead with a bright pop, a poetic folk freak with an air of near-death experience and a tormented voice suspended on a velvet rope.

Website

AVVENTUR

Full sentimental [Sunday] [00:25]

Although this project was born on a computer, the lives are focused on the use of machines and become terribly dancing and absolutely raw. Avventur combines footwork and trap with lovers' melodies in the form of vocal samples. Concocted with love, Avventur invites romance to the dancefloor and says, in half a word, little sweet words in a low voice under the basses, the big basses.

Website

ADAM & THE MADAMS

Garage souk [Thursday] [20:00]

Adam & the Madams is the result of chance, abusing pop formats and giving pride of place to DIY machines. The duo crushes found objects and declares their love to the happy accidents.
We quickly understand that this is not a lambda rock band but rather a lo-fi holiday camp where we practice fun activities, from psychedelic pop hits to scotch (-whisky?) to lego punk, including an outdoor walk.

Website

YEAHRS

Hardcore-gaze [Friday] [20:30]

Navigating between the fascination of shoegaze, the penitence of post punk and the mist of dream pop, the two Frenchmen exiled in Berlin (including an ex-Electric Suicide Club) add to this wall of sound a fiery and bubbling energy that makes them travel the scenes of Europe without respite.

Website

LES MUTANTS ONT DES OREILLES

DJ set / Rarities [Friday] [01:20]

Jean-Luc Billing and David Thiriet bring out prodigious albums, underrated music, rare finds and hits from the Roaring Twenties. A 100% vinyl musical ping-pong with improbable new wave and post punk, adorned with unstoppable beats chosen according to mutant criteria, off the beaten track and off the big commercial locomotives.

BALE TRAGIQUE

DJ set / This is not a bal masqué [Friday] [01:25]

Like Cupids in spandex, they will pierce you with their outdated romanticism. Beware of the St. Vitus' Dance,

RACHID BOWIE

DJ set / Dieu Spotify [Sunday] [02:05]

Everybody loves Rachid Bowie.
