The second Friday of every month: 2nd Stop is Jupiter! Dancing to the wildest live music in town. This evening the legendary band Nat Bed, Bubba from Gent, Harald ‘cello man’ Austbø solo, DJ Mamakil goes MC, Mimefabriek presents: ‘Salice Piangente’ a solo by Matteo Bifulco. Let’s get it on!
‘SALICE PIANGENTE’ A SOLO BY MATTEO BIFULCO
Salice Piangente (Weeping willow) is a celebration of what is hidden and the joy that comes of coming out and revealing.
Harald Austbø is a jazz cellist. He is active in the Amsterdam jazz & improv scene, plays in several bands, acts and composes for music theater productions. He improvises exuberantly and with humor. Every now and then you are put into rest by a lyrical stroking moment, but a little later it goes completely loose again rhythmically and otherwise.
Harald Austbø – voice, cello
If Mars had a soccer team, Nat Bed would be playing in their clubhouse. With unhinged mashups of pop songs they bring you riffs that hula hoop your hips and beats that rip up space suits. Weird, catchy, but above all. Nat.
Bubba makes punkalicious ear-candy for everyone who can’t help moving bodyparts (any bodyparts). The ideosyncratic mentality of the band translates into songs that combine catchy swinging pop melodies with heavy riffs and funky rap-intermezzos. We have songs about rainbows or going to a museum.
Jelle Hemelsoet – bass, guitar, voice | Simon Uyttendaele – drums, percussion, haiku | Koen Bracke – bass, guitar | Emma Verstraete – keys, voice | Ellis De Vreese – keys, percussion, voice
