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

Or, if you’re not that into the indie, you can indulge your inner metal god at the WACKEN ROAD SHOW (March 1, Tochka, 18:00), featuring Scandinavian metal giants OVERKILL, TRISTANIA and ENSLAVED. Locals DRAUGGARD open.

Holy fucking christ is there a lot of metal in March: next up is Swedish melodic death-metal band SONIC SYNDICATE (March 2, Tochka, 20:00).

Taking a brief break from the metal, you can have your eardrums assaulted by Pittsburgh punk band ANTI-FLAG (March 4, Tochka, 19:00). After getting their start in the mid-90s in the DIY punk scene, Anti-Flag gained popularity with their "political" punk (sample lyric: "You gotta die for your government / Die for your country, that’s shit"), all over easy-to-digest melodic hardcore. Since I stopped pretending to care about them in the late 90s, they’ve been praised in the US House of Representatives and signed to a major label. Way to keep it real and smash the state, fellas!

Top Picks

Nash’s Birthday Party

Krizis Zhanra, Feb 23 – 23:00

We’re not even gonna estimate how old our boy Nash is – because that would start to put even us in an unfavorable light. Instead, we’re just gonna say: train your livers, and wish our favorite Moscow Britpopper another happy birthday. Music accompaniment to the dozens of vodka shots sure to be thrust you’re your hands will be provided by locals Dans Ramblers and Stone Shades. Nash’s band Blast will of course be playing, unless the guys are too smashed to pick up their guitars.


Ikra, Feb 28 – 21:00

Hushpuppies hail from France, but we’re not gonna hold that against them, as they’ve dropped the usually froggy garbage and instead adopted garage rock and 60s psychedelic rock as their signature sound. Ikra, whose second birthday Hushpuppies are in town to celebrate, calls the band the most "adrenalinal" band in the world, and who are we to argue with a promoter’s hyperbole? Our sincerest congratulations go out to Ikra on its second birthday, with the hope that we get many more in the future.

George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic All Stars

B1 Maximum, Mar 6 – 20:00

While George Clinton and P-Funk have no doubt gotten pretty damn cheesy, they’ve still got a legacy that demands respect. In the 70s, Clinton’s freaky persona fronted bands Parliament and Funkadelic and continued on into the 80s, although with less success. Then, those ass-clowns in the Red Hot Chili Peppers recruited him to produce a record, and he has somewhat of a commercial renaissance, being sampled in just about every 90s rap song ever. Clinton is nearing 70 these days, but he’s still batshit crazy, and will no doubt have a room of the whitest people you know shaking their ass like it’s Chocolate City circa 1978.
