BallroomBlitz! Festival #12

mit THE BRIEFS, TV CULT, KRAWALLBOTZ, IEDEREEN, BRONKO

Zutritt ab 12 Jahren!

 

Wir feiern unseren 25. Geburtstag mit Euch und diesen Gästen hier:

The Briefs

Their ’77-style pop punk is loud, raucous and fierce, yet cohesive and hooky and hilarious. The Briefs are like a team of Chinese acrobats falling down the stairs on purpose. And when I say “pop” I mean popular in the broadest sense possible. The fifteen year-old mall hottie is a fan, but so is the 40 year-old stalwart with the pristine Undertones collection. Sure The Briefs wear their influences on their sleeve – Adverts, Buzzcocks, Weirdos to name just a few — but they cop to them like junkies caught tying off in the alley with a skinny tie. They can’t help it. It’s in their blood. Listen you’ll understand. The groove is familiar but they’ve got a sound that’s all their own and uniquely unique. Infectious? Once they get in your ear, there’s no getting them out. The Briefs are mother fucking nerve agents for a diseased life.

TV Cult

TV Cult are an eighties inspired Post-Punk band from Cologne, Germany. With brooding and
dominant bass lines, cold and frantic guitars, powerful drums, and vocals iterating between
crooning goth and DC hardcore; TV Cult create a sound that is both reminiscent of bands like
Joy Division, Black Flag and Idles; yet is truly unique.
Recorded in the winter of 2022 at 79 Sound Studios, the four-piece released their debut LP
‘Colony’ in November 2023 via Flight 13 Records. After supporting esteemed
contemporaries in 2023, such as High Vis, Ditz, Militarie Gun and Home Front; TV Cult will be
hitting the road in 2024 for their first solo shows outside of their beloved Cologne.

Krawallbotz

2002 aus den Resten von Notschl8ung und Pit Stop 500 zusammengekehrt, wurden bis 2018 von Ehrenfeld bis Nottingham die Herzen der Menschen erspielt. Es gab diverse Demos, ne Split mit den Brüdern von Madwoosch und sonst noch ein paar Aufnahmen, die in dieser Zeit das Licht der Welt erblickten. Prioritäten hatten allerdings schon immer die Konzerte und da geht’s erfahrungsgemäß immer lustig zu. Freundlicher Pogo, Polonaise in leckerer Bier-Schweiß Soße! Einmal mit alles, bitte!

Iedereen

Das Duo in der Rockmusik funktioniert nach dem Prinzip der Reduktion. Weniger ist mehr, heißt die Devise, wenn man wie Tom Sinke (Gesang, Gitarre) und Ron Hufnaegels (Schlagzeug) nur zu zweit auf der Bühne steht. Da muss man einfach mit höherem Engagement spielen, und es ist vor allem die Dringlichkeit und die Energie der beiden Freunde, die einen direkt am Kragen packt. Haben wir 2023 oder 1981? Ist das Post-Punk, Noise-Rock oder Alt.Pop? Wollen die jetzt düster oder fröhlich klingen? IEDEREEN lassen diese Fragen gut und gerne offen. Sie zeigen trotz kleinstmöglicher Besetzung eine größtmögliche musikalische Spannbreite, die durch die herrlich rotzige Attitüde der Band zusammengehalten wird. Was hier zählt, ist der Augenblick, Mit lauten Gitarren und weirden Texten feiern IEDEREEN den Moment des Schwindels, zelebrieren die Körperlichkeit, lassen den Hedonismus hochleben. Ihr habt den Alltag? Wir haben den Fluchtweg! Eskapismus klang lange nicht mehr so verlockend.

Bronko

Garagepunk, mal aufs Maul, mal ins Herz. Frickeliges Schlagzeug, deftige Gitarren, melodischer Bass, Gesang, Shouts und Rap mit ner Menge British Accent. Bronko sind unique, ungezähmt und DIY.

 

16.00 - 22.00

The Queers [USA] / Sidekick [USA]

Punk-Rock

The Queers are an American punk rock band, formed in 1981 by Portsmouth, New Hampshire native Joseph “Joe” P. King (a.k.a. Joe Queer) along with Scott Gildersleeve (a.k.a. Tulu), and John “Jack” Hayes (a.k.a. Wimpy Rutherford). With the addition of Keith Hages (ex-guitarist of Berlin Brats) joining on bass in 1983 the band started playing their first public performances. This original lineup played a total of five or six live shows. The original lineup of The Queers initially broke up in late 1984, but reformed with Joe Queer and a new line-up in 1986. In 1990, the band signed with Shakin' Street Records and released their first album Grow Up. The album earned the band notability within New England, but with the release of their next album on Lookout! Records, their following grew larger.

 

SideKicK is a powerhouse in the punk scene with a high-energy blend of melodic pop-punk style music. Formed in Hollywood, California in 2000, a few of their influences include Screeching Weasel, The Offspring, Ramones, and Bouncing Souls. Their debut full-length album, released on Cargo Records, garnered critical acclaim, earning an A+ review from the influential punk zine Maximum Rocknroll.

Beyond their work in the studio, SideKicK has thrived as a live band. Their touring résumé reads like a punk rock road map, spanning continents and festivals. From Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival in Las Vegas to Rebellion Festival in the U.K., they’ve toured throughout the USA and Hawaii, and globally into England and Europe. SideKicK has tattooed their place into punk rock history, having shared stages with a long list of legendary bands including Dead Kennedys. The Vandals , The Adicts, T.S.O.L., The Dwarves, Guttermouth, Scream, Sloppy Seconds, The Queers and many, many others. 
SideKicK's influence extends beyond the stage. Their tracks have been featured on nationally distributed punk compilations, including the ubiquitous "Punk 101," available in every Hot Topic store, showcasing their widespread recognition and appeal. Their versatility shines through in tribute contributions to bands like Weezer and NOFX, cementing their status as true family in the punk community.

Through the years, SideKicK has remained true to their roots, blending the spirit of punk's past with a relentless drive for the future. With each chord and every stage they grace, SideKicK continues to prove why they're not just a band, but an essential part of punk rock's evolution.

Smokestack Lightnin´ [D]

Rhythm ́n ́Blues, Sixties Soul, Country

Die vier Nürnberger bespielen nun seit vielen Jahren die Bühnen dieser Welt und das mit einer unaufhörlichen Kraft und Leidenschaft, die den Menschen das angestaubte Genre „Country“ wieder mit Sexappeal und Coolness näher bringt.

Ist es denn einfach nur Country? Treffender ist der Begriff Americana, denn die Band vereint Einflüsse aus Rhythm ́n ́Blues, Sixties Soul, Country und natürlich Rock ́n Roll. Durch enge Freundschaften in die Musikhauptstadt Nashville in den USA haben die vier Musiker aus Franken die Möglichkeit genutzt, den Spirit, der dort herrscht, tief einzuatmen. Das Ergebnis dieser musikalischen Inhalation erfährt man abseits der glitzernden Mainstream-Establishments in staubigen und von Schweiß getränkten Live Clubs im In- und Ausland.

Live-Konzerte von Smokestack Lightnin’ sind eine Hommage an die Blütezeit der amerikanischen Musikgeschichte der 50er bis 70er Jahre. Sie zelebrieren Rootsmusik und kreieren Alternative-Country wie kaum eine weitere deutsche Band.
Wer noch keine Smokestack Lightnin ́ Show live gesehen hat, der sollte schleunigst die Augen und Ohren offen halten.

 

Einlass: 20h, Beginn: 21h, Eintritt: 16€
