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.
