Exit07âs CongĂ©s AnnulĂ©s programme has been a blast so far. Delano has more tickets to give away to 3 of the best shows in the final week.
The Congés Annulés programme enters its final two weeks with a slew of great concerts, performances and events on the bill. Free gigs include a show by Dutch indie electro singer Charlotte Haesen (whose band features Luxembourg musicians Pol Belardi, Jerome Klein and Aloyse Weyler), a performance evening hosted by TMI (aka Ara presenter Richard Heinemann) with Sun Glitters, Dillendub and YozepH / Tone as well as DJ sets by Hirsto, LS and TMI himself, and a concert featuring Hal Flavin guitarist Samuel Reinard’s solo project, Wallace Dice, with support from DET90 (Synthesis’s Michael Galetto). Also on the bill is a den Atelier promoted concert by Wild Beasts (see Thing no. 4).
Delano has tickets to give away to three of the remaining concerts. First up is a set by Portugal's Noiserv on Saturday August 23. The multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter makes beautiful and thoughtful music that evokes the likes of Sufjan Stevens or Owen Pallett. Later in the week, Irish indie pop quartet Funeral Suits plays at Exit07. The band’s debut album, Lily of The Valley was produced by the great Stephen Street and received mixed reviews. The Guardian said it was clear the band wanted to “pursue a career as purveyors of epic, angsty rock” and even wanted to compare the band’s sound to U2, but admitted that they were “not bombastic or preposterous enough.”
Congés Annulés closes on Friday August 29 (although there is a record fair on the 31st) with a programme featuring local afro-post punk outfit No Metal In This Battle, influential Cologne-based electronic duo Vimes and Finnish instrumental quartet Siinai as well as DJ sets by A Boy Named Seb and DJ Sensu.
