LISTENER (USA – Black Basset Records / Tangled Talk Records)
If your best friend was a band, who would they be? I think they might be something like Listener. Because Listener is a band of best friends, who have experienced the best and worst of times, and have survived on songs. No one knows you like they do and no other band can describe how you feel like they can. They have captured just the right words and just the right sounds and pinned on them all of our deepest emotions, our greatest fears, our toughest challenges, and our unbridled hopes. This is a group that sticks close to your heart no matter where you go, who you’re with, or how you feel. When you put in a Listener album every song is like an old friend and every moment enjoyable. Beginning in 2002 as a solo act the band Listener has evolved over the years into a full fledged rock and roll band, and has toured the world over playing their brand of Talk Music. Based out of Kansas City Missouri with Dan Smith on vocals and bass, Kris Rochelle on drums, and Jon Terrey on guitar. With thought provoking stage banter, music that keeps your mind busy, and words that quickly take hold of your heart, Listener is a near perfect balance of what words and music are supposed to be.
LEVI THE POET (USA)
A performance artist and storyteller native to The Land of Enchantment, Levi The Poet has toured his way around the states and beyond with bands and artists spanning the full spectrum of genre, interacting with audiences in hundreds of venues – house shows to universities, dive bars to colleges, conferences, schools, festivals, churches and art spaces – throughout the country, with international performances as nearby as Canada, and as distant as New Zealand. Levi combines advocacy and artistry in a language that speaks beyond words. A language that resonates with life lived, universal. Ever a fan of truth and narrative, he has successfully woven the two together throughout his career in both autobiographical and fiction spoken-word storytelling. Levi combines heavy issues of faith, love, sexuality, mental illness, addiction, abuse and identity with the contrasted brightness of pseudo-fantastical story and myth. His most recent album and first foray into fiction – Correspondence (a fiction), a Wes Anderson meets Herman Melville’s Moby Dick mythology successfully funded this November at 140% of it’s campaign goal – is the clearest example of that maturity crashing against the innocence of a children’s story.
DEPTHS. (BE – Flood Records)
After an unannounced hiatus period of about a year, Depths. is back and more intense than ever. The band is in the process of writing their first full-length. Depths. deliver a powerful set of sludge infused post-hardcore. They have a fresh yet rough sound and will definately blow you away.
Presale 10€ (excl. service fee) / At The Doors: 13€
