THURSDAY 12 MAY
Bitterzoet, 20.30, €12 + membership
Husband and wife electro pop duo Dan Boekner and Alexei Perry are in love. Very much so. But, like most things these days, it’s complicated. On stage, this guitar-vox-keyboard combo are raw and in-your-face, messy, charmingly chaotic, yet very much in control – all things a good live show should be. Tattooed troubadour Boekner channels the best of The Boss while statuesque punkette Perry backs him up with beats that stand by her man. It’s raw, honest and delightful. It’s complicated. Like being in love.
While we’re suitably enamoured with Handsome Furs – Perry’s high kicks and all – we should dutifully inform that the night is co-headlined by Brit electronic live noise crew Three Trapped Tigers. These boys are a bit mystical with their song titles, working mainly with numbers, but musically think 65daysofstatic gone disco… or something silly.
Oh, and we have tickets to give away too. Wanna see Handsome Furs and Three Trapped Tiger at Bitterzoet for free? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with Handsome in the subject. Tell us your fave alternative love song and throw in some handy contact details too.Tweet
