Win more Congés tix

The Congés Annulés festival this year has a brand new venue, The Klub, in which to stage its familiarly motley programme of to drawer music gigs. The final two weeks of the programme incudes a whole host of concerts by international and local artists.

Luxembourg based acts playing showcase gigs include Napoleon Gold, Emre Sevindik (introducing his latest album “Monsters like us” with support from the talented Sun Glitters), Sova Sroj (aka Michel Flammant), and Claudine Muno in a live radio performance for 100,7. The programme also includes the screening of another film, Mancunian Mark Reeder’s “B Movie” documenting the music, art and chaos in the wild West Berlin of the 1980s.

Visitors to The Klub include Montreal expat band Ought, who play what has been described as “art rock” and London’s acclaimed electro synth pop artist Ghost Culture. Canadians Viet Cong (photo by Colin Way) “tap into the primal impulses of true post-punk” according to Ian Cohen’s review of this year’s self titled album, while garage trash duo The Hussy deliver a whole bunch of energetic fun. The festival’s Closing Night sees a line-up including Le Colisée, whose soulful voice has been influenced by the likes of David Byrne and Drake, and a performance by Lowdjo as well as a DJ set by Kernspaltung.
