15-12 Lola’s Dice

Names You Can Trust presents: Viaje al Centro del Ritmo

Saturday, December 15, 21:00 – 3:00, €5

Names You Can Trust presents the debut release from Lola’s Dice: Viaje al Centro del Ritmo. An ensemble born and battle-tested by years of punk and hard rock before fusing into its current form, a consolidated tropical-rock rhythm machine. Fueled in equal parts by the group’s South American roots in Venezuela and Chile, and the creative freedom of their long-time home in Amsterdam, the band’s evolution has resulted in music that is a pure body-moving delight — a fuzzy blend of guitars, synths and musical sabor that is very much rooted in the percussive sounds of Latin America, yet still comfortable in its punk-ethos vandalization of tradition and status quo. Helping to guide the band in this first studio recording is the talented touch of percussion maestro and engineering wiz Alex Figueira (Fumaça Preta, Conjunto Papa Upa) at his Barracão Sound studio in Amsterdam. The resulting 4-track EP is a perfect match of genre-defying psychedelic madness and Caribbean cool.


The night will seasoned with heavy sabrosura tunes to destroy the dance floor, with the help of hypnotic grooves coming from DJ Rengo Estar and Duo Penossi

16-12 Ryskinder + Those Foreign Kids

Ryskinder + Those Foreign Kids

Sunday, February 16, 20:30, entrance € 8 / € 6 (students)

Jerusalem’s Underground Pioneer Ryskinder creates a loopy and sample heavy version of rock ‘n roll by unleashing beats and guitar riffs from his sampler and singing / rapping in Hebrew. Ryskinder shows are a wild fusion of Live electronics, Punk Attitude, Hip-Hop rythmes and Warm Psych rock riffs.

Those Foreign Kids’ daredevil stage antics and smoldering, cataclysmic garage punk anthems notwithstanding, the duo manages to elude their odds-on spectacular collapse. Westerlaken still wields a myriad of (custom) guitar effects like some punch drunk orchestra conductor, while Heijmans seems inclined to inflict havoc on his skins for the sole purpose of quelling the inner voices in his head.

Any other band might’ve been at each others throats, but TFK seems to take it all in stride with demented bemusement. As their spur-of-the-moment ‘let’s start a band’ pact a decade ago betokens, Heijmans and Westerlaken entrust their creative instincts to chaos and randomness instead of letting those things to impede on their delightfully knee-jerk stage dynamic.

Before the imagination can run rampant, you have to start with an empty canvas.. a void of sheer nothingness. And luckily, TFK embrace sheer randomness and escapism for the sake of just THAT.
