This year DOEK turning the Bimhuis upside down for their own production: The Market. For two glorious days the Bimhuis will be transformed into a meeting place where all sorts of exchanges take place, from goods and services to smells, flavours, cultures, sounds, glances, blushes, curses and currency. On Sunday 16 June DOEK moves to sexyland for a Saturnalia party featuring a slew of pre-existing bands as well as some new combinations. The evening culminates in the big band – Bacchanalia: La Orquesta.
Again a great night in the Bimhuis, last april 20th. We started with a new project of Andy Moor (guitar) and Yannis Kyriakides (electronics), followed by an energetic set of the Belgian band STUFF. and finished with a great solo set of Gerri Jager on drums and electronics. Thanks to Thomas for his nice pictures.
Watch and listen this live video of drummer Gerri Jäger, during the third Interplanetary Night, april 20 in the Bimhuis.
The nights are organised by Space is the Place, focussing on the Amsterdam improvised music scene (and much more).
