A list of things to do.... Approved by Caia
1. DJ Shadow
… And the party continues in Trix with the legendary DJ Shadow. Ever since his 1996 debut Endtroducing, this Californian DJ mixes instrumental samples into dramatic hip-hop style sets and even fills in some drum ’n bass samples here and there. A must-see for every music fanatic out there.
March 4th – Trix – Noordersingel 28-30, 2140 Antwerp
2. The Syrian Cry
The Syrian Cry started as a protest song based on the neverending and senseless violence happening in Syria. Bird That Changes Colour’s frontman Koen Kohlbacher gathered some like-minded musicians to record the song, including members of Fence and Bed Rugs. The song is available on iTunes and all of it’s profits go directly to a hospital in Aleppo.
And so The Syrian Cry grew into a huge project in which other artists showed interest in too. This tuesday, all three bands will play a live set with the same purpose: collect money for the benefit of Syria.
Special guests: Tim Vanhamel, Mauro Pawlowski, Pascal Deweze, Marco Z , and many more.
March 5th – Bourla – Komedieplaats 18, 2000 Antwerpen
3. Mr. Nobody
Every first wednesday of the month, it’s movie time at Den Eglantier. Next up is Mr. Nobody, a film telling the story of 118 year old Nemo Nobody.
March 6th – Den Eglantier – Zillebekelaan 6A, 2600 Antwerp
4. Bed Rugs - Album release
