Hi folks,

This won't be everyone's cup of tea :D , 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 8) :

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.

Some links:

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
James Jacket - solo set from Les Baton Rouge guitarist
Black Leather - really Velvets/Bunnymen up & coming Lisbon band

We have a couple more to announce before the end of the year. More info here:

Or PM me if you fancy coming to any of the shows.

Cheers, Nick

As before shows are at Centro Cultural do Cartaxo, €5 tickets, doors open 11.30pm.

Ringo Deathstarr - Noisy three-piece from Texas, this is their only show in Portugal this year
The Fauns - Touring with Ringo Deathstarr, these guys are a shoegazey outfit from Bristol
Lumerians - Proper psych stoner rock band from California on their first European tour
Black Bombaim - One of the most exciting bands in Portugal at the moment

Cheers, Nick

Quick update:

Nuno Calado has an interview with Jón Sæmundur a.k.a. Nonni Dead from Dead Skeletons on his Antena 3 show tonight, broadcast just after midnight (Can be streamed here: http://www.rtp.pt/antena3 ).

SIC Radical has a preview of the Dead Skeletons show tomorrow at 5.30pm, they'll play the video for Dead Mantra (some of it anyway) and there'll be an interview with (probably) me.

Cheers, Nick

Hi, Nick, I like quite a bit of alternative rock and folk and hubby would probably like the noisy three-piece from Texas!

Shame you are so far away ... also, I'm usually just about asleep by 11.30pm! :shock:

Boa sorte!

Thanks Victoria.

I am also not used to the lateness of shows here, but I guess it's the Portuguese way! I'm used to London gigs which are over and done with by 11pm usually.

Cheers, Nick
