Sharp Knives from Lisbon on the stage at Joe’s Garage for the first time. Well, they already know this space. They just recorded their first record: “This is also a result of our personal and collective experiences & growth, so inevitably Disgraça (the anti-authoritarian social center where we conspire) and everyone involved there are a big part of it. It’s our home and it deserves our gratitude as much as everyone else.

Squatting being criminalized, rare are the squatted spaces left to hold concerts, benefit events or soup kitchens. Joe’s Garage as a squatted social center, is supporting bands, performers, activists, fellow squatters who understand the urgency to support each others, to strengthen our networks. In other words, start networking on something else than facebook, instagram, twitter, spotify and youtube. So rare are the bands these days making the effort to have a decent website, to the point we, at Joe’s Garage, are less and less interested to make space for such bands.

Do you want to perform on the stage, play a concert at Joe’s Garage? Get in touch, we are curious to read on your website, not on corporate facebook, where you’ve been playing in the past, where you’re heading to.

Cinder Well, haunting folk from Ennis, Ireland

Cinder Well https://cinderwell.bandcamp.com/ is the haunting folk project of Amelia Baker. Her songs are nostalgic and moving, centered around memory, loss, place, and longing. While heavily influenced by traditional American and Irish music and song, Cinder Well is deeply personal and original. Amelia Baker’s mourning vocals are framed with resonator guitar, shruti box, and strings, and her lyrics and cathartic melodies wrap listeners in a surrealist world just adjacent to our own.

Aman Molli: special concert with Mále Vráse

Saturday January 19th 2019, Aman Molli: special concert with Mále Vráse, 19:30, donations welcome.

Once upon a time, in a period between wars, there was migration and sorrow (around ~1920). Folks from different places such as Smyrna, Istanbul, Aegean islands were gathering at the Piraeus docks to survive. While living at the margins of the society and being unable to adapt quickly to the rapid changes that industrial revolution and western countries dictated to Greece, they were meeting at “tekedes”, underground illegal dens, where they could blend their music traditions and experiences while smoking hash, marijuana using shisha and other custom made devices.They used to sing, dance, fight, love and discuss for many hours until the morning or until the police were forcefully stop them and take them to the prison.
Change is inevitable and Rebetiko was not an exception. Metaxas dictatorship in Greece (1936-41) enforce music censorship, which include melodic pathways, rhythms and lyrics. Someone said life always finds a way and music did the same!

That was the birthplace of Rebetiko, more or less…
And that music is what Male Vrase will play and sing with us!

Mále Vráse’ is a Greek slang expression, meaning upset, a mess, bust up. Having in common the love for music from a very young age, the members of Mále Vráse mixed their influences and started their own music journey. Each one with a different musical background, they form their sound with respect to the original gramophone recordings, combined with contemporary music elements.

Mále Vráse band are:
Antonis Laurijsen – Guitar, Vocals
Charis Laurijsen – Bouzouki, Vocals
Dimitris Maris – Bouzouki, Vocals
Nikos Kaliouris – Violin
