To me booking Remek and Gattaca is what DIY is all about. Making your dream come true and bringing people along the way who pursue the same dreams. From shooting the poster with my flat mate, to loading the van after the show– sharing the spaces and time felt just right.
During the sets of the two Czech bands, I was switching between dancing awkwardly and taking photos. The intimate show has left me with a ghostly feel for a second day now.
Upyr’s slow and crushing doom melodies didn’t lag behind too. They never fail to surprise with tiny details in their sets that one keeps discovering. Keep an eye on them, their split with Whitehorse will be released soon.
This is how I remember that night.
