Neustädli, letzten Sommer. Zwei fanden sich am Tisch zwischen Cordon Bleu, Bristol, Hawaii Hose und ihren Gitarren. Sie schlossen einen Handel. Eine Gitarre geht rauf nach Bristol, eine kommt runter nach Luzern. Hey, es bleibt in der Familie. Aber eben, „You won’t part with yours either“. Daher vereinen sich am Samstag den 30.3.2019 in der Bettstatt Bar Ambient Afro mit Alternative Experimental Post Rock. Sie können nicht ohne die Eine sein.
Stoph Bjornson. Ein Multiinstrumentalist. Man liest von einem virtuosen Tuba-Terror-Lehrling, kennt ihn von der frivolen Volkspunkjazzband Azz Jazz und als Bassist in divers zusammengewürfelten Musikprojekten. Da er sich schlecht vermarkten kann und mein Musikerwissen begrenzt ist, könnte es einige Lücken in der Bio jetzt haben. Daher besser vorbeikommen zu Afro Ambient – Bassist Stoph El Oso Ruckli alias Stoph Bjornson trifft auf …
… Steve Strong Music. Er ist ein Chamäleon. Zuhause im Mathe-Rock, Post-Punk, Hardcore, Psychedelia, Trip Hop, experimentellem Jazz und sogar Folk. Ständig ist er am Aufnehmen, spielen und wie Stoph wirkt er in unterschiedlichen Projekten mit. Eine Kultfigur im Untergrund Bristols. Im Januar 2019 brachte er sein zweites Album raus. Turbo Island. Tom Stokley schrieb dazu „it is the music we need right now – astrophysical sounds for troubled times that exist beyond our differences.“
Releasing her eagerly awaited second album THE HARE & THE LINE, Inni-K plays @Dublin Sud.

Katie here and I am over the moon to announce the first tour of 2019 – the TRUST Tour! Woohoo!
Since my first busk in 2011, I have been supported in all kind of ways by my listeners-come-friends and together we have created some beautifully unique moments through the years. It always seems to work out because you have faith in me and I have faith in you. We build each other up to do brilliant things! I believe that is what this journey is about.
The intention was to become a midwife. But intention and desire collided for Katie O’Connor in 2011 on the streets of Galway, Ireland. Shortly after graduating, she put her qualification in the back pocket, shaved her head and moved to Berlin with just her guitar and her unrivalled voice. Staying true to herself matters much more than the security of staying within the lines of a normal lifestyle.
She is a vagabond. A dreamer. A story-teller. She doesn’t fit the mould. Reasons why she calls Galway home. Yet in true globetrotter fashion, she spends many weeks of the year on the road, telling her stories in clubs, bars, cafes, concert halls and on the street. It is easy to stop and listen because she is genuine with a palpable passion in her songs. Her fourth album ‘Fuel for Dreaming’ has been met with a very positive response from her listeners.

Lorcan Lyons (IRE), I discovered and picked him up for two years ago at the Another Love Story Festival. He only sings for pure pleasure. He will leave his Mo – SA job for once, just for us, for to bring the Capri-Sun from Ireland to us.
Lorcan has no links or videos. He is the guy from your living room. It will be a surprise like a Samichlaussäckli.
All of that in the Bettstatt Bar, your bar around the corner. The bar with fine cocktails, homemade ginger schnaps and good & home-made beer and fairtrade Spanish nuts. Concert at 8pm. Collection box.
The Yonder Boys are a Berlin-based “Old Time Americana” string band, with roots imbedded in Bluegrass with beautifully sung close harmonies. The band features the duo of Jason Serious (guitar) and David Stewart Ingleton (banjo) who have performed as support for Billy Bragg, The Wood Brothers, TimberTimbre, Other Lives, and Nathaniel Rateliff. They have also performed at such well-known festivals as the Truck Festival in Oxfordshire and Maverick Festival in Suffolk, England. Joining them is multiinstrumentalist Tomás Peralta (double bass, mandolin and lapsteel).
The name “Yonder Boys” comes from the fun fact that all three players hail from separate continents around the globe.
Their self-titled debut EP comes out April 12 on Blue Whale Records.
Yonder Boys, Thursday the 22nd of November 2018 at 8pm – Bettstatt Bar.
No idea what to expect. Donal Mc Connon is probably as diverse and pretty freaky as the entire Neustadtstrasse together. It could be the killer of the series Fargo, which seduces people to action with sociological wisdom – I think Donnal could do that with his The Curly Organ as well.
Donal will take our hands and guide us through a museum of human extreme and banal experiences. Sociologists and freaks, that will be fun 🙂
In Galway Donal is well known as a band member of the nationally loved Prog Folk outfit bandMy Fellow Sponges.

Walsh’s Stoneybatter, Dublin. Most likely it was raining when we met the brothers Diarmuid & Brian Mac Gloinn. They were sitting around a table, together with friends during a TradSession. We were lost – in music, in time and in Guiness & Tea. Ye Vagabonds.
They grew up in rural Carlow but moved to Dublin in 2012 and becameknown on the traditional Irish, blues and folk scenes in the city, playing folk songs as well as their own original material. Their blend of harmonic folk music is influenced by traditional Irish and European music, American old time, and the music of the 1960s folk revival.
Myles O’Reilly, he said once about their music: “Going backwards to go forwards, look not to modern day influence to inspire their sound, but prefer to absorb and reflect the most genuine leanings of deep tradition, playing folk music that resonates as pure and honest as it has since time immemorial. In an age where styles have a limited shelf life, and musicians so often live by definition of their sell-by date, Ye Vagabonds make music that honours timeless sincerity with acoustic fireside storytelling that will sound as current a hundred years from now as it has a hundred generations past.”
Times goes by but it’s still possible to meet Ya Vagabonds in a pub like on Thursday the 13th of September 2018 at the Bar of the B&B Bettstatt-Neustadt in Luzern at 8pm. No reservation possible. Collection Box.
… and loud & crowded mit allerlei.
Du denkst, es sei ein langer Weg rauf zum Sedel, aber das ist ‘ne Kleinigkeit im Universum. Ground Control to Anja, Ürsu, Steff, Nis & an die DubSud Community und abheben zu: Space Is Big! Es hat altbekannte Gesichter dabei 🙂 Steve Strong Music (UK – Post Rock) – 23 Uhr
Steve Strong (g/d) ist unser Astronaut. Er alleine katapultiert uns ins Universum mit seinen Beats, mit seinem tapping und mit den zurückhaltend wie epochalen, skelettartig wie vielschichtigen, schillernd wie pulsierenden Melodien. Es glitzert, schwingt und explodiert um dich herum an den richtigen Stellen. Es gleitet anmutig von einem Abschnitt zum anderen und du fühlst dich so was von absolut frei. “Neat Monster”
PREAMP DISASTER (Atmospheric Postdoom) – 21:30 Uhr
Preamp Disaster vermischen Elemente verschiedener Musikstile wie doomigen Metal, Stonerrock und progressiven Rock. In die Songs von Preamp Disaster tauchst du ein, du fliesst mit ihr mit und wirst von ihr davongetragen. “Silence”
Katie O’Connor (IRE – Singer Songwriter) – 18 Uhr
Katie O’Connor’s tiefe, rauhe Stimme zu ihren mal leicht, mal melancholischen Folksongs lässt dich ankommen in der City Blue des Weltalls. “City Blue” http://caitomusic.co/
