School, Sweet School! and Joanna Törnros (DJ set)!


SSS is described as follows by a former fictional member of krashen:

Honestly, I think it is a disaster. You shouldn't call it a band, really. You can hardly call it a duo even. It is still just this guy playing the same chords over and over again and hoping that something will happen. Just like it was before. And this other member, Lobster Girl, I never quite figured what she really does, what function she fills. If any. I don't really “get” her. On the other hand, I don't really “get” any of them. On the yet another hand, I think their “Bladen Brinner”-record is amazing, a masterpiece.

School, Sweet School will make this rare appearance during Sunday's event at Southside Cavern.

For the event on Thursday, there is now a second DJ confirmed: we'll see (er, hear?) a debut set from Joanna Törnros, who is otherwise doing various great things in The Paper Merchants, We.the Pigs and Little Big Adventure/s! I've noticed her having ace taste in music and it'll be exciting to hear what she comes up with.

There's also some other great news when it comes to the DJ line up: Silja from Librarians Wanted will join David and select tunes for us - so, two thirds of this ace London night is represented!

Kuryakin join Library Tapes and Woodchucker for venue-changed Thursday! (plus some sad news)


Since it was announced that Friday Bridge were going to play at Wednesday's pre-party instead, I've worked pretty hard to secure that Thursday at Southside would still be an equally fantastic evening, and I'm very happy to announce that Kuryakin are able to join in! Since 2003, Petter Gjöres and Johan Norberg have created minimalistic, sometimes danceable but most of all always beautiful songs - much to the delight of an audience that simply appreciate delicious tunes, quite consequently made with a less is more state of mind. Their debut-EP "Still here" was put out by Shelflife, and last year, their full-length album "A new day" came out on Fastcut. If you were that certain The Embassy are surely the most elegant Swedish pop duo there is, you might just have to think again.


Sadly, Yo Amoeba will not be able to play at this festival, due to personal reasons.
Hopefully, we can do something together in the future!

There is work in progress concerning the Sunday. Stay tuned.
