This won't be everyone's cup of tea , however with the help of the Camara Municipal and our local Cultural Centre, my little cultural collective is promoting a series of shows at Centro Cultural do Cartaxo. This will be starting in September and if it goes well should become a regular thing. It's all very alternative music, psych/noise and some alt-folk maybe. Our aim is to bring foreign alternative acts to an area of Portugal that they never come to, and at the same time promote some of the excellent local and national Portuguese alternative bands, of which there are many.
So we have our first three shows :
September 21st - The Telescopes (UK) + James Jacket (PT)
October 4th - Dead Skeletons (IS) + Black Leather (PT)
October 26th - Underground Railroad (FR) + Piatcions (IT)
All shows are at Centro Cultural do Cartaxo, €5 tickets, doors open 11.30pm.
Dead Skeletons - This will be their first and only show in Portugal this year
The Telescopes - Also playing Porto on Sep 22nd
Underground Railroad - Also playing Porto on Oct 27th
Piatcions - Also playing Porto on Oct 27th
