The Rotondes’ Klub venue (formerly Exit07) celebrates its Congés Annulés festival. Delano has tickets to some gigs to give away.
The Congés Annulés festival this year has a brand new venue in which to stage its familiarly motley programme of indie music gigs, film screenings and even children’s theatre.
The festival lasts throughout August and kicks off on the first of the month with a double bill featuring Swiss duo Klaus Johann Grobe, whose infectious Kraut rock inspired groove has had the likes of Pitchfork drooling, and Clap! Clap!, a new African inspired project from Italian producer C. Crisci.
The festival takes a classical twist on 2 August when Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk performs his beautiful “continuous music”.
Another early highlight of the festival is a visit on 6 August from Irish all male outfit Girl Band, whose post-hardcore shtick recalls Clinic at their most abrasive--Pitchfork’s Stuart Birdman has special fondness of singer Dara Kiely’s “split personality”, which he describes as “part arch absurdist, part panic-attacked nervous wreck.”
British “SynthPunkNoiseCrunk” outfit AK/DK bring their bouncy electro dance to the Klub on 7 August, preceded that evening by an Exit:LX Session from local band No Metal In This Battle (free entrance to this 7 p.m. gig).
On 8 August the Klub hosts the more ambient Rival Consoles, while recent penchant for psychedelic beats is represented by American Tim Presley’s White Fence on 12 August.
