Lolina (Relaxin Records) 
Manisdron (L.I.E.S.)
+ More

London based Lolina (also known for her work as Inga Copeland as one half of Hype Williams) returns to OCCii hot on the heels of the release of her latest album project, Face The Music.  An ever evolving musical entity, her live
shows maintain an unpredictability and dynamism that continue to enthral .  There's no guessing what Lolina is going to bring to OCCii this time and we really cannot wait.

Another welcome return OCCii's stage is Manisdron (Goat JP, The Noup) who resides in the southern city of Okayama, Japan.  The one person Manisdron show is an energetic blast of live drums, electronics & vocals. Having played endless shows around Japan since his previous visit in 2019, you can expect a fired up show from this understated talent.  His debut album on L.I.E.S.  last year was described as "Mutant technoid nowave teeth grinding body music"  by Glasgow's legendary Rubadub record store.. spot on!   

Support on the night will comes from Karaoke DJ duo, ゆりかゆかりた(有)(who formed last year) offer up "Snack friendly" Enka duets next to Asian Trap, Punk and a whole lot more.

More support will be added soon...

Tears closing...

Butcher's Tears' western outpost Tears (Jan Van Galenstraat 10) closes it's doors this weekend and that is a sad sad thing. Tonight and tomorrow are the last evenings at the bar, and I encourage you to come along and trash the place (and yourselves) in finest style

Tonight (Friday 24th)
  DJ Dry Eyes Sheds A Tear        
- Playing loud to cover all the crying and uncontrollable bawling.
19:30 - 00:00

Tomorrow (Saturday - the last ever night at Tears!!!):
  DJ CRAP & Pals                           
- The brains behind the brews tag team & spin goodbye party tunes until the early hours... with a little help from some local drunks.
16:00 - late!

Beer special for Saturday night:  Drikku - Baltic-style Lantöl with juniper
" Brewed in the weird and wonderful fashion of the farmhouse beers of Eastern Sweden and Western Estonia. Luscious malt flavours combine with herbal and citrusy notes of Nordic forest."

The original Butcher's Tears tap-room in Zuid (Karperweg 45) is still in full flow and I hope to see you there in the near future.

For now, lets mourn the loss of.....

... with a good old fashioned two day piss up....

* "why are they closing?"  i hear you ask. Well, the developers are moving in, and you know what that means...
