Voku benefit Woningsdag w/ live music: Lyngfarer and Ancient Hostility (anarcho folk)

Monday July 22, 2024, Voku benefit Woningsdag w/ live music: Lyngfarer and Ancient Hostility (anarcho folk). Food served from 7pm, no reservation. Music from 8pm.

The benefit money will go to the costs of Woningsdag, every year while the country celebrates Koningsdag we celebrate Woningsdag because the urgency to get everyone housing is more important than Monarchy. Last Woningsdag, on April 27, 2024, a building got squatted in the city center (Gravenstraat 26-28). We still have some unpaid costs and that’s why we have a benefit.

There will be live music performance as well with Lyngfarer and Ancient Hostility, the anarcho folk night from Joe’s this summer:
Lyngfarer https://lyngfarer.bandcamp.com/
“Lyngfarer is the quiet and pensive stuff that Magnus Nymo from Norway writes. It lives in the fog between medieval lore and anarchist dbeat classics but is quiet enough to be a lullaby. Magnus started performing as Lyngfarer in 2015 and has since then hung out and toured around Europe, Scandinavia, Ireland and the US and UK.”
Ancient Hostility (anarcho folk): “Harmony singing and drones from members of All In Vain and Dawn Ray’d, singing songs about heartbreak and resistance.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g27Bhsxzrvc […Lees verder]

Aman molli experimental: Exploration of audiovisual interventions in post-rebetiko era

Friday 14 June 2024, Aman molli experimental: Exploration of audiovisual interventions in post-rebetiko era. From 20:00.

Tradition has a tradition in change. This is how rebetiko, a type of Greek urban folk music came about from outcasts and workers as a form of expression around 1920s. In this open workshop we will focus on how to transform tradition by including new analog and digital elements in sound, tempo, lyrics, voice, visuals and compositional style, thus bringing tradition in underexplored territories. Bring your instruments, your ideas, and come to the session with an open mind!

Welcome Home: a book conversation with Clarrie Pope

Friday 8th March 2024: Welcome Home, a book conversation with Clarrie Pope, event organized by Supernormal, queer feminist collective that hosts literary events around Amsterdam. Door opens at 19:00.

Squatting, gentrification, care work, living with activists, Rihanna, Trotskyite dogs, capitalist cats, being in love with your hot and (mostly) unavailable flatmate – WELCOME HOME, a graphic novel by sisters Clarrie and Blanche Pope, weaves all these topics (and, if you can believe it, more) into an impactful yet humorous narrative about housing struggles in London.
We’ll be talking to Clarrie about making the book, the experiences behind it and how those experiences relate (or not) to the Amsterdam squatting scene. So: whether greenwashing developers make you incandescent with rage or you simply have some strong feelings about cats/dogs/the music video for Te Amo to work through, come join us for the discussion!
There’ll be books on sale afterwards. Clarrie will sign yours for you, if you like!
Bonus: afterwards there’ll be (vegan) cake AND music inspired by two important characters in the book (Rihanna and Gianna Nannini) curated by DJ Jenny Woolworth <3
