We love women in punk-rock music and also when this punk is mixed with pop and the result is trash-power-pop music. This is what the band Amanda X from Philadelphia does. Cat Park of Bandname on guitar, Melissa Brain on drums and Kat Bean on bass create songs that remind of Vivian Girls or Sleater Kinney. Named after a reference of The Simpsons, since 2012 they have been touring through the USA, opening for bands like the disappeared Dum Dum Girls, Parquet Courts, Mudhoney or Marnie Stern. This is the first time they tour through Europe, so don’t miss this opportunity to see them!
The Munich band Apian will be the warm-up band with their unique mix of post-punk and shoegaze. The best plan for a Saturday night!
