A couple of weeks ago VICE and WIMP once again invited people into a hidden wonderland below ground level. Here they take care of everything and by that I mean literally everything – Booze, music and atmosphere. It all sounds pretty great right, but there is one major problem. They only host these events in Copenhagen.
The collaboration between the magazine from Montreal in Canada and the independent music streaming service started in 2011. Since then a lot prominent artists have been presented such as SPECKTORS, Förtress, Ice Cream Cathedral, Fitness Figures, Glass Animals (UK) and many more. A couple of weeks ago they hooked up with one of our favourite labels, TAMBOURHINOCEROS, and their two artists and SOA favourites Treefight For Sunlight and 4 Guys From The Future.
Both bands have marked their arrival once again this year. Both with album releases praised from all kind of distant edges of the musical landscape. With a hammer and chisel, they have written their names on venues from east to west, north to south – literally on all outskirts of the small and beautiful Danish kingdom.
Both their gigs can be seen below, because of the partnership between VICE and WIMP meant to result in 20 free live events throughout 2014. Every single time a couple of tracks will be selected, recorded and uploaded to Noisey – the musical part of VICE.
The reason why we want to show you these videos is actually pretty simple:
We love the idea of promising acts crammed into a sweaty basement, playing almost secret gigs with minimal capacity. We want VICE and WIMP to see the endless possibilities in Aarhus – to see that our basements are kind of sweaty in that atmospheric way too?!
VICE and WIMP, if you guys are in for it – count us in as well!
4 GUYS FROM THE FUTURE – “NOTHING TO SAY”
TREEFIGHT FOR SUNLIGHT – “SOMEWHERE IN THE FUTURE”
