Canadian band Half Moon Run bring their epic folk to town to wow fans and newcomers alike with their intense melodies that bring to mind the style of Arcade Fire or Mumford and Sons. They present their third album, ‘A Blemish in the Great Light’ (2019), and you’re sure to hear other great tracks from their debut album, ‘Dark Eyes’ (2012) as well as their sophomore effort, ‘Sun Leads Me On’ (2015).

Tonight in concert at La Nau.
JOINA presents her first record, “Companyes”, a tribute to all the women who have had the courage to break the silence and raise their voices. Poetry written in Catalan, combined with sung melodies and a sound environment of great instrumental richness, are what characterize JOINA‘s first record. Songs with a strong feminist burden and social demand, the result of personal experience and a deep will to share and collectivize these struggles. In an eclectic style, “Companyes” combines influences from hip-hop, funk, jazz, flamenco and classical music. Tonight in concert at La Nau.
De Staat are a rock band opening the floodgates to an intoxicating, even dizzying, array of genres, which is not particularly unusual for them. It’s been woven into their DNA since day one.
Through their own brand of rock more and more people are noticing them over the years, which led De Staat to landing some highly coveted support slots including The Rolling Stones in Amsterdam and a run with Muse across Europe with their blockbusting 2016 Drones tour.
Dutch alternative rock band De Staat have won the International Rock Video Of The Year award at this year’s UK Music Video Awards. The prize comes for the video for Kitty Kitty, the first single to be taken from the band’s fifth studio album Bubble Gum. Tonight in concert at La Nau.
Ryan Bingham’s music defies classification with folk, blues, country and rock n roll all part of the recipe. It’s authentic and powerful and the songs are rooted in real life – in survival and sacrifice and, yes, sometimes just having a damn good time.
Nobody making music today has a voice like Bingham’s, one that has the worn and weary character of an old fighter more than twice his age but the power of a young man. It’s an intoxicating mixture that reaches new levels with the support of his talented band.
Bingham is a singer-songwriter, not a product, and his latest studio album American Love Song movingly shows how the overarching theme of the personal and communal American existence can encompass triumph and tragedy from one moment to the next. Tonight in concert at La Nau.
After making waves with his debut album Scum and the seven-track Civil Disorder, Rat Boy has teamed up with Tim Armstrong for his new project Internationally Unknown. Separated by 30 years of age and the Atlantic Ocean, Rat Boy and Armstrong sound like the very definition of an odd couple. But they immediately connected on their first phone call, through a shared love for mixing the visceral energy of punk with hip-hop beats. In many ways, it’s hardly surprising: both musicians share similar influences and often reflect on their upbringing in their lyrics. The pair met in Los Angeles and immediately captured three demos on their first day together, with members of The Interrupters backing them on bass and drums. Rat Boy has diverse influences which echo, at various points, The Clash, Beastie Boys, The Prodigy, Rebel MC, Green Day and Run DMC. Standout tracks include the title track which contrasts manic verses with an anthemic downtempo hook; the aggy street-punk rush of opening track Chip on my Shoulder. Tonight in concert at La Nau.
