Moscow Nitelife Roundup
By Jared Lindquist Browse author
Page 2 of 2

Those of you still dwelling in the past will be happy to know that British Tolkien-core flute band JETHRO TULL (February 22, MDM, 19:00) is returning to town. Those of you not down with "Aqualung" are free to ignore.

Surprisingly, the eXile is not sponsoring the RED SNAPPER (February 22, B1 Maximum, 21:00) gig, but it's really because we can only truly support the red snapper au naturale, and not when it's made up of four sweaty Brits on stage playing acid jazz.

Closing out the fortnight is another synth / dark electro night, this time headlined by German dark wave band DIARY OF DREAMS (February 24, Tochka, 19:00). Froggy dark-electro group TAMTRUM supports.

Top Picks


Feb. 15 & 16

I was skeptical of last summer’s Dutch Punch festival, but after getting donkey punched by many of the bands’ awesomeness, I have an innate desire to check out unknown Dutch indie bands. Electronic indie duo ZEA (February 15, Aktovy Zal, 20:00; February 16, Proekt OGI, 22:00) provide me my next opportunity. They supposedly are crazy live, which means that having exile faves DOT DASH open the first night’s gig will work out to their advantage.


Feb. 16

Normally I hate opening up Myspace pages. You get hit with ugly graphics, and inevitably some asshole’s shitty music will start playing over whatever you are listening to. It is the rare occasion where this natural background music actually takes control and forces me to listen, but with new local band MANICURE (February 16, 23:00, Krizis Zhanra), I was transfixed. The band consists of two bros and two hos, and their sound is very new wave / post punk – I guess what the kids often call "dance punk" these days. From what little I can gather from their Myspace page, they might make the attempt to fight with Krizis’ dickhead bouncers worthwhile.

Silence Kit

Feb. 17

I’m still pushing the hell out of lmy favorite ocal post-rock band, SILENCE KIT (February 17, B2, 21:00), even if the last time I saw them, the entire audience was sitting down. St. Petersburg dub metal trio SKAFANDR opens.
