Wednesday, February 19, music starts 21:00, entrance €6-18 (sliding scale)

Quinlan Kirchner (b. December 14, 1981) is a drummer, composer, improviser & DJ from Chicago, Illinois. Learning from Chicago educator, Don Skoog, his studies soon grew to include the traditions of Afro-Cuban drumming, taking him to Havana, Cuba to study under acclaimed percussionists José Eládio, Omar Rojas & Don Poncho Terry. His early exposure to expressive arts and dedicated practice led him to earn a Basin Street Scholarship to the University of New Orleans, led by Ellis Marsalis, at the age of 18. In the years since his return to his native Chicago, Kirchner has become a ubiquitous drumming force throughout the city’s diverse music scene.

With “The Other Side Of Time,” Kirchner creates a cross-genre, wide-spectrum exploration through his sonic personality. Grainy, soulful post-bop meets free-jazz. It includes original compositions, spontaneous improvisations, and solo drum pieces alongside interpretations of classicsi. Joining him in his working band is an assemblage of Chicago luminaries – Jason Stein, Nate Lepine, Nick Broste, Matt Ulery & Ben Boye.

Thursday, February 27, music starts 21:00, entrance €6-18 (sliding scale)

This 3/5 Naked Wolf formation wil play the first time especially for this evening. With new Naked Wolf songs! Naked Wolf: ‘With equal doses of unpredictable riffs, infectious groove, gritty noise and heavy pop, the result is a primitive avant-garde music that is driven by momentum.’

Felicity Provan – cornet/vocals | Luc Ex – acoustic bass | Gerri Jäger – drums


Jasper Stadhouders – guitar, mandoline, kologo

Etceteral are a duet featuring saxophonist Boštjan Simon and drummer Marek Fakuč. It is a vehicle for exploring repetitive, polyrhythmic electroacoustic music and draws its influences from Kraut-Rock and Afro-Futurism. Their purpose is to create a propulsive rhythmical feel by forging an immediate symbiosis between one synth and two acoustic instruments.

Boštjan Simon – baritone saxophone, DSI Evolver, effects | Marek Fakuč; drums, Moog Grandmother Visuals; Lina Rica
