2x2 TICKETS SLOW MAGIC + GIRAFFAGE
24 May - EKKO, Utrecht
Mysterious producer Slow Magic compares his music to ‘the sound made by an unknown imaginary friend’. Apparently that friend likes squeaky-cleanly produced, dreamy chillwave. He/she/it wears a colourful zebra mask while playing live, so guessing which wildly famous celebrity might be hidden underneath should add to the fun.
2x2 TICKETS MUSH-ROOM
24 May - De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam
Take a theatrical trip to a psychedelic world where music, dance and art collide. Cult legends The Residents have released over 60 albums since 1971, but famously prefer to hide their individual identities, appearing onstage in disguises ranging from giant eyeball helmets to bunny suits. Barkley is a choreographer who has previously worked with Sonic Youth and now collaborates with the iconic band to produce a show which promises to be an eruption of strange images, absurd characters and undoubtedly bizarre costumery.
2x2 TICKETS CHRIS COHEN
26 May - Paradiso, Amsterdam
Multi-instrumentalist Chris Cohen has performed with high-profile acts including Haunted Graffiti, Deerhoof and Cass McCombs, but went on his own last year with album, Overgrown Path.
2x2 TICKETS ANIMAL COLLECTIVE
27 May - Melkweg, Amsterdam
Animal Collective's new found popularity hasn't affected their production of quality electro-pop. New album Centipede Hz may be slightly more accessible than AnCo of old, but still contains a harsh and chaotic quality which should silence the critics.
2x2 TICKETS COCOROSIE
29 May - Tivoli, Utrecht
U.S sisters Coco and Rosie Casady have punched out five full length albums of their distinctive 'freak folk', in between lending their talents to big fashion brands and composing scores for two films. Now they and their cacophany of instruments are back to play Tivoli, Utrecht.
2x2 TICKETS SLEAZEFEST
1 June - Timboektoe, Wijk aan Zee
Organised by Amsterdam organ punk duo zZz, Sleazefest offers up a once-a-year chance to spend a day fully immersed in sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll (and punk, garage and surf) and maybe even a little bit more sex if you’re lucky. The remote location should allow for plenty of mayhem, so be sure to pack your wet wipes – it’s gonna get sleazy up in there.
