A night of brilliant post-metal, sludge, rock, and jazz shit!
Rosetta, Wrong (with members of Kylesa, Torche), local legends Monkey Okay and Morsboerne Raindogs. GO!

Forging ahead as a fully-independent band, Rosetta returns in 2017 with Utopioid, their sixth fulllength album and most concept-driven work to date. Written as a four-part song cycle that treads multipolar extremes of texture, dynamics, and harmony, it reaches the highest heights and the deepest lows of the band’s career. An unflinching study of human aspiration, frailty, and betrayal, the album is equal parts mysticism and biography. Utopioid tells a story in sounds, encapsulating and transcending the band’s 14 years of sonic experimentation. Formed in Philadelphia in 2003 as a four-piece, Rosetta's first two albums—2005's The Galilean Satellites and 2007's Wake/Lift—pulled together elements from 90s hardcore, drone, doom, and atmospheric sludge metal. Informed as much by the minimal soundscapes of Stars of the Lid as by the pulverizing weight of Godflesh, the band's compositions had a spaced-out, exploratory feel, appropriately dubbed “metal for astronauts.” 2010’s A Determinism of Morality moved on from celestial themes, focusing on increased melodic sophistication while honing a confrontational urgency. After concluding a decade-long partnership with Translation Loss Records in 2013, Rosetta embraced their newfound independence with the self-funded, pay-as-you-wish album The Anaesthete. The darkest, most unsettling album of the band’s career also marked their greatest success so far, recouping costs in 24 hours and remaining the top-selling release on Bandcamp for nearly a month. 2015's Quintessential Ephemera, Rosetta’s first effort as a five-piece, received widespread critical and audience acclaim for its energized guitar interplay and evolution of the band’s core sound. With Utopioid, Rosetta has again upended their stylistic palette. But as always, with ever deeper gratitude for the investment of fans around the world, they continue to search for the intersection of heaviness and beauty.

Monkey Okay:
Monkey Okays debutplade, blev i 2015 særdeles godt modtaget af danske rockanmeldere. Nu arbejder bandet på en opfølger, som kommer til at tegne et mere komplekst og eksperimenterende Monkey Okay. Kompositionerne fra den kommende plade markerer et stilskifte for bandet. Lyden er nu mere eksperimenterende, med flere referencer til den psykedeliske rock, kombineret med et mørkere og tungere udtryk - dog stadig med den samme spilleglæde og forkærlighed for den stærke melodi.

Raindogs er en instrumental trio med guitar, bas og trommer, der udspringer af MGK MidtVest. Med bluesen som omdrejningspunkt, tilsat jazzede vibes og poppede melodier, befinder trioen sig i et genremæssigt grænseland, der er inspireret af musikere såsom Mark Knopfler, Julian Lage og Bill Frisell.
Trods det instrumentale udgangspunkt er Raindogs brugsmusik der skal være tilgængeligt for alle, og ikke bare folk der selv spiller musik. Musikken kan fortolkes som forskellige soundtracks – hvert nummer rummer en stemning og fortæller en historie.
