Divus Julius presents: Orville Peck

Emerging country musician Orville Peck, who is gay, only appears in public in a cowboy hat and mask, and his voice has earned favorable comparisons to Roy Orbison, Chris Isaak and Elvis Presley.

When listening to the mysterious nomad’s recently debut album Pony, it is clear the dusty roots of country music flows heavily through Peck’s bloodstream. Adopting and expanding upon an outlaw demeanor best illustrated by the likes of Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn and Waylon Jennings decades ago and more recently, Sturgill Simpson, Peck renders the timeless genre with otherness. Tomorrow in concert at Sidecar.

Divus Julius presents: Bear’s Den

The duo of Andrew Davie and Kevin Jones has completely taken their native England by storm, and are now setting their sights on bringing their eclectic folk rock tonight to Barcelona.

Bear’s Den isn’t new on the music scene. They formed in 2012, and have since released two full-length albums, the second of which, 2016’s Red Earth & Pouring Rain, reached into the Top 10 of the UK Albums Chart (#6). In April of this year, Bear’s Den have released their third LP, So That You Might Hear Me. Tonight in concert at La2 Apolo.

 

Divus Julius presents: The Districts

Coming from the small town of Lititz, Pennsylvania and now based in Philadelphia, guitar-rock band The Districts have become a jewel in the crown of a spectacular music scene in the City of Brotherly Love. The quartet put their own spin on alt-rock style while offering something different with each song. They display a lot of variety within their music while keeping things amplified and electrified, and it sets themselves apart from a lot of their contemporaries who abide by simple structures.

The Districts will release new album ‘You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere’ on March 13th.

Divus Julius presents: 404

Hailing from South London’s thriving DIY scene, 404 are 2019’s most unpredictable, no-holds barred and essential new collective. Formed from two previously separate factions releasing music under one unifying umbrella, their unique form of electronically infused hip hop has whipped up a fervour amongst South London’s thriving DIY scene, and with their debut EP ‘Guild One’ the group have set out to replicate their formidable live reputation across six devastating tracks.

Divus Julius presents: The Blue Stones

The Blue Stones’ Tarek Jafar and Justin Tessier are quickly carving out a name for themselves in the blues rock, alt garage world–making stages quake.

The duo pride themselves on delivering a sonic wall of sound, drawing influence from The Black Keys, Acid Jazz and even Jay-Z. Their impressive last year’s album, Black Holes, is poised to arm-wrestle your eardrums into sweet submission.

The Canadian duo  have just released ‘Shakin’ Off The Rust’ – a song that very much serves as a mission statement for their renewed sense of confidence and newfound identity.

Divus Julius presents: Lucy in Blue

Stepping boldly in the dusty footsteps of such giants as King Crimson, Camel and Pink Floyd, Lucy in Blue take the stage with atmospheric grooves and bittersweet harmonies. Their newest album, In Flight deals with the dilemmas of the psychedelic experience and spiritual poverty. Confusion, despair and wonder carry the listener from black beaches to snowy peaks, to emerge at the apex of felt experience, in flight.  Tonight at Sala Apolo.
