What we're about

This group is for people who enjoy live music in the company of friends. We are open to any kind of live music and we count on you as well to get this group going!

You are therefore welcome to propose events, unfortunately Meetup doesn't allow anymore to create events by any member. Thus, the options are:

1/ If you would like to post a one-time event, please e-mail the organizers and we can do it for you, without granting any other role than event host for that event.

2/ In case you are interested to propose events from time to time with this group, please e-mail the organizers and we will grant you the Event organizer role. With this role, you can create yourself the events anytime.

3/ If later you would like to involve with this group even more (administer the group pages, share the meetup fee, actively posting events, decide the group way forward), there might be a possibility to become a Co-organizer.

Although this is primarily a Brussels-based group, events in nearby towns like Leuven, Gent, Antwerp are welcome.

Let's not forget about the music!

von Stroheim + Des yeux (Doom / Cinematic / Drone)

Von Stroheim est un trio bruxellois fondé en 2014 qui évolue entre post-metal et blues.
Dominique Van Cappellen-Waldock, la frontwoman du groupe, a grandi entre Londres et Bruxelles. Mélomane, insatiable collectionneuse de disques, celle-ci arpente le circuit metal et les grands bastions du punk, dont la célèbre salle londonienne le Marquee Club. À Bruxelles, sa route croise celle de RONNIE JAMES DIO. Voix emblématique du groupe Rainbow, héros de la culture metal et intérimaire chez Black Sabbath, ce dernier écoute sa première démo et l’encourage à chanter.
Musicalement parlant, le trio a été décrit comme "PJ HARVEY CHANTANT AVEC BLACK SABBATH".
Les textes sont inspirés de dialogues de film noir des années 40 et 50. Sur scène, von Stroheim se la joue en smoking et robe de soirée. Le groupe serait aussi à l’aise en première partie de Neurosis que de Nick Cave.

DES YEUX est un groupe bruxellois rassemblant des ex-membres de OMSQ et Sunken. Leur musique, basée sur la répétition, trahit des influences doom, noise, kraut rock et black metal. L'univers de "transe lente" qui s'en dégage invite à fermer les yeux et se laisser emporter, voire écraser, par des saillies sonores qui évoquent à la fois l'exubérance de Gnod, le minimalisme de Sunn O))) et la noirceur d'Oranssi Pazuzu.

For all stoner rick fans, Fu Manchu need no presentation :) They will play at Ancienne Belgique on 14 October.

About them: "Fu Manchu celebrates its 30-year existence in 2020. The O.C. stoner-rock legends started out in 1985 with a hardcore punk band called Virulence, then going on to establish Fu Manchu as we now know it 5 years later: full of bold fuzz riffs, the sexiest wah-solos and the swankest skate-stoner-punk. Together with bands like Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Sleep, Fu Manchu helped form the stoner genre in the '90s. To mark this occasion, they finally head over to AB again for a show full of classics and recent work."

Tickets are available here: https://www.abconcerts.be/en/agenda/events/fu-manchu/21680/

We can go for a drink either before or after the show - let's see closer to the date!
