Dinosaur Jr. hasn’t really changed – soundwise – for decades. They still play the coolest vintage gear, rock the dirtiest, grittiest fuzz pedals and turn it all up to eleven! A sheer treat for indie rockers and old souls at Trix in Antwerp with support from Garcia Peoples.

After 3 years Black Stone Cherry returned to German stages. They have not lost anything ever since the last time and are a fantastic live band with an energy loaded show. Presenting songs from all of their albums making the German fans at the LKA go crazy. With very special guest The Georgia Thunderbolts opening the night, it couldn’t get any better!

The coalition of the Norwegian stoner punks of Bokassa and Greek stoner rockers of Planet of Zeus rocked the house seriously. On The Rocks Helsinki was the place to be and those who weren’t there missed out on some good fun!

Monster Magnet

The weather had been indecisive for a few days before the show, veering between pleasant summer and anticipating thunder, which left a very hot and brewing air indoors.

Pentagram on Roadkill 2017

For years and years I go to the Roadkill Festival in Waarschoot, BE. After all these years this festival became a gathering of friends in the wide area of Waarschoot. Not only the numerous friends there make it noteworthy, also the organizers manage to get hell of a line-up!

This edition is no exception to this habit: They managed to get Pentagram, Thunder Mother, Acid King and Raketkanon. Also bands like Eyes on the Machine, Huracán, Hedonist and Fire Down Below entered the stage!
