KVELERTAK + TRUCKFIGHTERS + EL DOOM & THE BORN ELECTRIC @ Glazart (Paris, 15.03.13)

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)

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