by

Since the release of their first record in 2011, I’ve had one obsession : seeing KVELERTAK live. Firstly, because the Norwegian sestet has cranked the level up a notch with...

SUNGRAZER + THE MACHINE + LIBIDO FUZZ @ Saint Ex (Bordeaux, 02.18.13)

by

Bordeaux on a Monday night, two fine stoner bands : it may sound quite illogical, but I was afraid. Afraid that people wouldn’t show up, and that these incredibly talented...

TWEAK BIRD + MARS RED SKY @ Bordeaux (11.02.13)

by

Being able to draw a crowd to the Saint Ex on a cold and humid Monday was Slice Event & Pizza’s risky bet, when they decided to invite hype brothers TWEAK BIRD to...

CANCER BATS @ Le Krakatoa (Bordeaux, 01.12.13)

RED FANG + HARK + DRAWERS @ Glazart (Paris,11/29/12)

by

How would you rationalize the fact that more and more people regularly attend RED FANG shows ? Hmmm… Maybe because their superhero stoner/ heavy rock sound wins...

TRUCKFIGHTERS + WONDERBAR + SLURM @ Toulouse (27/11/12)

When Sweden descends upon South West of France, especially when it’s about underground legends called  TRUCKFIGHTERS, you don’t hesitate to drive a couple of hours to...

DOWN + WARBEAST @ Le Bataclan (Paris, 10/24/12)

DOWN playing in a French club ? It hasn’t happened for a while. The last gig of DOWN I attended was at Bilbao Kristonfest last year, which definitely made it to my top 3...

CROWBAR + HANGMAN’S CHAIR @ Nouveau Casino (Paris, 08/19/12)

by

CROWBAR is a fucking weapon of mass destruction, everybody knows that. I’m a real fan of the band, but never had the chance to attend a gig so far. So last night in Paris...

RED FANG + DRAWERS @ Bordeaux, France (07.17.12)

by

RED FANG, one of my favorite bands, playing a gig in my town ? Even if I’m not a worshiper, I would definitely say it feels like the coming of the Messiah on Earth to me....

It was their first time in my dear hometown : yes, I’ve been waiting forever, but KARMA TO BURN finally played in Bordeaux. If you read this blog, you know that I also...

GLOWSUN + SUNGRAZER + HYPNOS 69 @ Stoned Gatherings (Paris – 03.24.12)

by

KYUSS LIVES ! @ Krakatoa (Bordeaux – 06/24/10)
