The Fortnight Spin
By Jared Lindquist Browse author
Page 2 of 2

While I missed NOUVELLE VAGUE’s (April 4, B1 Maximum, 21:00) first visit to Moscow last year, apparently there was enough demand to bring them back and double the venue size. No big shock I guess, who couldn’t get into French lounge cover versions of the DEAD KENNEDYS, THE CLASH, DEPECHE MODE and others.

Dark electro bands playing in Moscow are nothing new. Usually, they hail from Scandinavia or one of the darker corners of Germany. So it’s unusual to see a dark electro band from the sunny climes of Mexico. Yet that’s where HOCICO (April 5, Tochka, 19:00) claim to come from. Dutch industrial dude GRENDEL opens.

If you’ve got nothing better to do with your sad life, go watch a 60-year-old GLORIA GAYNOR (April 5, B1 MAXIMUM, 21:00) lip-synch an extended version of "I Will Survive". Another option is to stay home and order Transpizza before hanging yourself.

Top Picks


Bilingua. March 29, 21:00

When Rotterdam’s Feverdream was supposed to play in Moscow last fall at Projekt OGI, the eXile crew was out in force, only to have the door doofus tell us that some local folk band was playing instead, and that we shouldn’t believe everything we read on the club’s website. So we went across the street and drank ourselves stupid at Booze Bub instead. This time, we have much more reliable information that the abrasive Dutch indie trio – think Shellac, Q and Not U or Fugazi – will actually show up and take the stage. Locals Analog Sound open.

Back To Cbgb

Ikra. April 2, 21:00

Nevermind the fact that New York’s CBGB was a total fucking shithole dive that lived far beyond its utility, the club will forever be romanticized by everyone who wasn’t there. As such, the promoters of this rock fest have seen fit to appropriate the club’s name, for a display of Moscow’s best and rawest rock bands. The mini-fest (actually about the same number of bands that would play CB’s on any given weeknight) is nominally headlined by local Ramones-inspired punk band Lazy Bitches, while our favorites Rivushie Struny are one of the openers. Other participants include Barto, Thunderbirds, The Cavestomphers and the Powlers.


Solyanka. April 5, 23:00

The latest skeezy motherfucker to bring his new disco sounds to Moscow is German’s Headman, who first started making waves in 2003 on the Gomma label. He’s since been remixing a veritable Who’s Who of underground rock and disco acts: Franz Ferdinand, Royksopp, Mylo and Annie, among others. This shows that either he has taste, or the guy he paid to write his bio is a good editor. Uber-hip local post-punkers Manicure opens.
