On the 18 of october you are supposed to see the strangest event you have seen ever in your whole life!

Lau Nau -Lau Nau is free spirited Finnish artist Laura Naukkarinen. Since the release of her celebrated debut full length Kuutarha on Chicago’s Locust Music in 2005, Lau Nau has enjoyed considerable recognition for her intimate & playful blend of ethnic tinged folk songs with curious & intuitive sounds conjured from familiar and exotic sound sources.
As a live performer, Lau Nau has enjoyed opportunities to perform in a wide array of venues from small informal spots like Massachusetts’s Montague Bookmill & Westers Gallery on Kemiö Island, Finland to larger spaces like Stockholm’s Kulturhuset, New York’s Anthology Film Archives, the Contemporary Art Centers in Glasgow, Brussels & Castelló and the Avanto festival in Helsinki. In recent years, her rare and special live shows have earned her a special place among a legion of fans. This was further cemented when a Lau Nau performance during her 2005 North American tour was counted among The Wire magazine’s “60 Concerts that shook the world” in its February, 2007 issue.


Shogun Kunitoki -The Helsinki based instrumental quartet Shogun Kunitoki demonstrates the way forward by looking backward. The future is that of the ring modulator and the spring reverb, the outcome of the highest musical evolution, in history and beyond!

Shogun Kunitoki's debut album, Tasankokaiku, released by Fonal in early 2006, stands as a culmination of the group's long search for their own musical language. The result has been described by reviewers as fresh and unique but strangely familiar at the same time, a timeless kaleidoscope of sounds culled from five decades of electronic music, psychedelia and minimalism.
