LIVE | SCHEDULE
JAVVA – A band consisting of acclaimed musicians of Polish jazz and alternative scene who come from such bands as Contemporary Noise Sextet, Alameda, Duży Jack, Hokei, Something Like Elvis, Opla or Xenony. In Javva, the artists have taken on dance music in their own original way without cutting off their avant-garde roots. The effect is excellent and combines African and oriental rhythms with avant-rock, psychedelic music, or noise. Their debut album Balance of Day became one of last year’s music highlights in Poland.
When: 4 September (Friday), 17.00
1984 – Originating from Rzeszów, they are legends of the new wave, enjoying a well-deserved status of an iconic band in their genre. The group is fronted by one of its founders, the guitarist and lyric writer – Piotr “Mizerny” Liszcz. After years of turbulence and changes to the line-up, the band has never been in a better shape than now. Their concerts are energetic, gripping sets that bring to mind such performers as Swans or No Means No from their heyday. Even though some time has already passed since the band’s famous debut in Jarocin in 1985, the band continues to walk their own path and soon we will see their next album, released by none other but Antena Krzyku.
When: 5 September (Saturday), 17.00 5
MU – In the world of Polish alternative culture, Tymon Tymański is a genuine one-man-institution: a musician, composer, producer, writer, columnist, filmmaker, a man with an artistic ADHD. The artist has won “Orzeł” (Eagle) Polish Film Award for the music to Wojciech Smarzowski’s film “Wesele” (“The Wedding”) and the audience award for the film “Polskie gówno” (Polish shit) at the Polish Film Festival in Gdynia. He has co-created such famous musical and artistic phenomena as Totart or yass and fronted countless bands, among others, Miłość and Kury. In 2015, on a special commission for the East of Culture – Different Sounds festival, Tymon Tymański & the Different Sounds Orchestra premiered the anti-war concert-manifesto “Wojna to przeżytek” (War is a relic) in Lublin. Now he returns with a new, ambitious and enigmatic band called MU. MU is a fusion of post-rock, jazz, synth pop and electronics, and to this unusual line-up Tymon has invited his regular guitarist and co-producer Marcin Gałązka and the greatest talents of the contemporary Tricity scene: Michał Wandzilak, Jacek Próściński and Michał Jan Ciesielski.
When: 6 September (Sunday), 17.00
