14-9 De Ruimte crowdfunding blowout

De Ruimte crowdfunding blowout!

Friday, September 14, 17:00-3:00, entrance: crowdfunding donation (suggested: €8-15)

To celebrate the start of the new season, and to end our crowdfunding in style, we’ve put together a programme to be proud of. Live music, poetry, DJ’s, and even an album release by our favorite brass band in town!

21:30 Helena Hoogenkamp
21:45 ZEA & Oscar Jan Hoogland
22:45 Kitchen DJ Team
23:30 The Zebra Street Band album release
01:15 DJ Basvavla + Duo Penossi (Hotmamahot Radio Show)


Zea is the solo alias of Arnold de Boer, vocalist in The Ex; using a minimal set-up of guitar and sampler, Zea creates a maximal one-man polemical lo-fi punk funk pop juggernaut. Highly explosive improvising electric clavi-chord wizard Oscar Jan Hoogland, adds a unique sound to Zea’s songs, opening them up, stretching them to the limit of space and time.

The Zebra Street Band is an Amsterdam-based brass band. They play original tunes inspired by African, Caribbean and Afro-American rhythms plus music by their favourite artists. The group likes to play on the streets as well as venues.

They will present their first (and best) album ZeBrass!

Salvoandrea Lucifora - Trombone | Alistair Payne - Trumpet | Andrius Dereviancenko - Tenor Saxophone | John Dikeman - Baritone Saxophone | Onno Govaert - Snare drum and percussion | Fabio Galeazzi - Bass drum and percussion

Also known as the Pickuptrucker, DJ Bavavla has the deepest vinyl collection we know, effortlessly jumping from Indonesian funk to kaseko, to styles we haven’t even heard of. Together with Duo Penossi, they will dig up records so rare, they haven’t even been released.

16-9 Robocobra Quartet + Barry Slee

Live/Loud: Robocobra Quartet + Barry Slee

Sunday, September 16, music starts 21:00, entrance €8

Mining influence from jazz, hardcore punk and contemporary classical music, Robocobra Quartet sound like little else.

Originally formed at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the group operate as an expanding, contracting and ever-changing collective. A no-holds-barred approach centred on a howling drummer-vocalist and menacing saxophones takes them to festivals such as SXSW (USA), Latitude Festival (UK) and Into the Great Wide Open.
The group improvise not only musically but also in their conduct – engineering their own recordings and performing in venues as varied as jazz festivals, the back room of a pizza parlour and in-store at Rough Trade Records.

The new LP Plays Hard To Get is out now on 12” vinyl/digital via Abbreviated Records.

“Fugazi meets Mingus.” – Drowned in Sound

Also known as Lyckle de Jong, or Waterlelyck. Barry put down his pen for his voice. That’s all we know ;)
