Astronautalis (Us), Bleubird (Us)
Thursday 14. June 2012, 8pm
A gig of two american solo artists, considered alternative hip-hop, within their joint Eastern European Vacation Tour 2012.
Astronautalis (Us, Fake Four), born Charles Andrew Bothwell, is an American hip-hop artist. The term “artist” is in his case, truly not an exaggeration, ´cause he´s mixing hip-hop with blues, electro and indie. Many describe him as “Beck of young generation, influenced by hip-hop”. Astronautalis studied directing, so his performances sometimes look like talkin´blues shows with freestyle rap, where he improvizes and engages even the audience into his lyrics. He was invited by duo Tegan and Sara to do an australian and european tour together. His last record, This Is Our Science, was released in 2011, and he captured the atmosphere of live performances on it. These days, he is working in studio with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, who is about to release new material.
As a support, a one-man project Bleubird (Us, Fake Four), will perform. They are close to each other with Astronautalis, not only musically, but also as friends.
Admission: 5,00 / 3,00 € (adults / students)
