The Girlfriends are a non-alternative noise rock orchestra delivering a wild, yet tactless show.



Entiset rakastajat (Ex-lovers) is a garage rock duo from Turku founded in 2015. Essi bangs the drums while Yrjö cranks the guitar. Together they form a noisy soundscape that would propably get on the nerves of your gran! They met at Naantali already in 1998 but it took a while before their first aural blasts. Said about them: ”Entiset rakastajat look and sound like White Stripes cover band singing in Finnish until you watch close enough and realize it’s Yrjö Saarinen, the central figure of Turku indie scene singing about love gone bad with his actual ex."




Kasipuol is a post punk / noise trio known for their vibrant live spectacles; their manifestolike lyrics and massive sound will hit you like a giant tidal wave. The band's noise rock has often been compared to A Place to Bury Strangers, and the sligthly political and critical lyrics by Alexandr Manzos are filled with frustration. Kasipuol's self-titled debut album is a tribute and an autopsy to the dead and buried form of art: rock music. The album was published 15th of April in 2017 and presents a collection of many themes including throw-away society, individualism and alienation caused by modern technology – the very crown jewels of our western society.
