Boytoy (USA) / Indolent (D)

Garage / Punkrock / Rock

BOYTOY is a summer-time strut down a New York City sidewalk as the sun slips behind the horizon where cement meets the shore and waves crash on pavement. Their sound ebbs and flows between natural harmony and destruction—embodying the bright grooves of the 1960’s with heavy guitar riffs snatched from the Lower East Side of the 1970’s.

Their forthcoming sophomore LP, Night Leaf, was born on a ranch in Topanga Canyon, California, surrounded by three dogs, two pigs, nostalgic tones of warm tube amps,  analog tape machines and a slew of old trucks, RV’s, and surfboards. With a fresh collection of genuine tunes and contagious rhythms, founding members Saara Untracht-Oakner (vocals, guitar) and Glenn Michael Van Dyke (vocals, guitar), were joined by Chase Noelle (drums, ex-Thelma and The Sleaze) and Lena Simon (bass, La Luz), to record at producer Kyle Mullarky’s renowned Pump House Studio. Mullarky is well known for his work producing and recording California bands including The Growlers and Allah-Las.


Since 2014, BOYTOY has released a self-titled EP, their debut full-length, Grackle, in 2015 (both on Papercup Music for vinyl + digital, Burger Records for cassette) and several 7” singles with various labels including Little Dickman, Bob Records and Swiss label Sacred Hood Records, garnering praise from outlets such as Rolling Stone, NYLON, Noisey, Stereogum and SPIN, to name just a few.   They’ve spent the last three years touring extensively across the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, the UK and Europe, hitting SXSW, Growlers Six Festival, Northside Festival, while sharing the stage with Midnight Oil, Surfer Blood.


Night Leaf is due out Spring 2018 in the US and U.K./EU, when BOYTOY will head back out on the road to spread catchy grooves coast to coast and across the ocean. 


Indolent aus Köln und Bonn besteht aus genau zwei Leuten - ist allerdings dafür umso rabiater auf der Bühne: Nur mit Gitarre, Gesang und Schlagzeug springen die beiden im Dreieck des Rock zwischen Garage, Punk und Indie und orientieren sich nicht nur an den großen Duos des Rock wie den White Stripes, Death From Above 1979, Blood Red Shoes und vielen anderen, sondern einfach an allem, was zornig ist und schnell auf den Punkt kommt.
Seit vielen Jahren lotet die Band mit etlichen EPs die Grenzen von fetzigem und rotzigem Garage Rock aus. Ganze neun Scheiben sind es bisher, die nächste ist auch schon in Arbeit - Gemütlichkeit kann dem Duo also niemand vorwerfen, sowohl bei der Musik, als auch auf der Bühne.


Einlass: 20h, Beginn: 21h, Eintritt: 8€
