Striving for Autonomy! the Barricade 3rd anniversary

A promising event organized by The Barricade taking place at ACU, Voorstraat 71 in Utrecht on Sunday 1st December. The Barricade is a “volunteer-run collective inspired by raccoons and anarchism“, hosting a weekly sunday event at ACU.

The Barricade will be celebrating 3 years anniversary, Striving for Autonomy! and has already announced a full day of events, from vegan brunch to music, exhibition, a book presentation “The Barricade ABC” and various workshops, discussions such as “Reflection Tables on People’s Kitchens and Political Struggle”, “DIY: A collective toolbox against the supermarkets”, “Social Centers as basis for Counter-power”.

Reflection Tables on People’s Kitchens and Political Struggle https://squ.at/r/7gxy

A big part of what we’ve been doing for the past years, is hosting the anti-food waste dinner on Sunday evening. For us, providing people with a meal made from trash for free or donation is a political statement to address the problem of food waste and the importance of collective cooking and eating. We are not the only ones doing this, there are a lot of VoKus around in the Netherlands who organise meals or events out of the same political principles. We would therefore like to host reflection tables in the afternoon during Barriversary, to share experiences and start a reflection about the importance of food and collective cooking/eating.

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

Monday April 15th 2019, door is opening at 7pm with the Volkseten Vegazulu, the weekly people’s kitchen, vegan food on donation, no reservation. Tonight, you’ll be supporting Faso Kele. See event: Steun Faso Kele – ecoboerengemeenschap in Guinée – ! From 8:45 till 10pm, music on the stage with Cinder Well, from Ennis, Ireland, free entrance, donations welcome.

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.
