ALTE SAU  (Germany)
Es ist ein erlesener Kreis aus der Hamburger Subkultur, der unter dem Namen Alte Sau zusammen Musik macht: Keyboarderin ist Rebecca „Becki“ Oehms, die die wärmsten Orgelsounds ganz Norddeutschlands spielt, Bassist Thomas Wenzel, der einst bei den Sternen und den Goldenen Zitronen den Bass bediente, am Schlagzeug sitzt Raoul Doré, der aus den Untiefen des Neunziger-Hardcore kommt und inzwischen das freie Spiel entdeckt hat. 
Es textet und singt: Jens Rachut, Wildschweinhasser und IC-Fan, der mit seinen Bands Dackelblut, Angeschissen, Kommando Sonne-NMilch, Oma Hans, u.a. (ungewollt?) musikalische Wege für viele Bands ebnete.

BIG JOHN BATES NOIRCHESTRA (Canada)

No chance to stop Big John Bates! If you never had the chance to see this band on stage,
you probably have already heard about their amazing live performance.
They are a group that has succeeded in finding exciting ways to avoid the mainstream of – what we call – rock’n’roll. They throw “Post-Rock and Symphonic Punk into Americana-Noir“.
This band is their own class and their live-shows are just amazing!
Latest album release „Skinners Cage“ (Rookie Rec.)

Tour period:  autumn 2023 ?  –  More infos

A Deer A Horse (USA)
Massive basslines, a firework of guitars, massive drumming, distinctive and in a way temperamental, muscular vocals. Strong songwriting and catchy melodies – never in the way of their dominant riffs.
This 4-piece band pushes you in the face with their bass runs, heavy fuzz guitars and plaintive as well as nihilistic lyrics with a sometime grim stoner attitude through a mix of doom-rock and a touch of sludge-metal.
In other words: You can find A Deer A Horse probably in the gaps between such bands as Melvins, Red Fang, Sleater-Kinney or L7.

Tour period: 15.march – 15.april 2023    –      More infos…

BOB LOG III (USA)
The master of all one-man bands – always on tour around the globe.
He is an American, Slide Guitar, One Man Band. Bob plays old silvertone archtop guitars, wears a full body cannonball man suit, and a helmet wired to a telephone which allows him to devote his hands and feet to guitar and drums. The spectacle has been described as a guitar dance party, full of sweaty smiles, jumps and kicks. Touring over 150 shows per year in more than 30 countries, Log and his guitar never, ever quit.
Bob Log’s version of quick Delta blues is a continuation the sound that Bob Log and Thermos pioneered in the duo, Doo Rag. The major differences are: greater emphasis on guitar showmanship, and drumming -one man band style-with his feet. It sounds like three drummers, two guitar players, and one sort of singer. Based in Tucson, Arizona, and Melbourne, Australia, he has made frequent tours around the whole world!
Check out all his albums, all his singles and don’t miss a show!

BERNADETTE LA HENGST (Germany)
„The hardest working woman in Pop“  „Sie geht ab wie eine Rakete – bis Wahnsinn und Schweiss verschwörerisch funkeln“.
Bei ihren Konzerten zeigt Bernadette La Hengst so ziemlich alles, was es braucht, um die Welt mit Melodien zu retten: >>> Elektrisierende Popsongs zwischen Elektrodub, Krautbeat und swingendem Loverssoul,   hin zu Arab-Pop und Funk, Folk bis zu Rap und Elektro-Dub.
Ein Bernadette La Hengst Konzert ist alles andere als selbstverliebter Diskurs-Pop mit
Betroffenheitsfaktor. Ihre Beats sind fett, ihr Charme entwaffnend. Den Rest erledigt Bernadette mit
Gitarren, Beats, Cello und einer wunderbar kraftvollen und leidenschaftlichen Stimme.
Bernadette La Hengst vereint überzeugend Standpunkt und Revolte.
