Lost In Genre: ROCK’N BALTICS

U2 leader Bono once said: “Pop music often tells you everything is OK, while rock music tells you that it`s not OK, but you can change it.”

In rock music people talk about wide range of problems, it`s powerful and compelling. Release your inner rock musician and visit some rock music events.

  • “Janis Bukums” band, album “Ugunslietus” (“Fire rain”) presentation at “9. vilnis”

Janis Bukums is famous Latvian rock singer, active since 1989. His songs “I forgive you this” (“To piedodu es tev”) and “Prayer” (“Lūgšana”) are Latvian rock classics.

Janis Bukums returned to the music scene with his self-titled band “JANIS BUKUMS” and album “Alive and Different”, which was released on March 2015.

Now the band`s releasing second album “Fire rain”. It represents the band`s musical potential, energy and strength. There is one provocation though – cover version of Irish band`s “Snow Patrol” song “Chasing Cars”.

“Fire rain” presentation will take place on 7 April at club “9. vilnis”. It will be followed by concert series in Riga and other Latvian cities.

  • British rock band “Manic Street Preachers” at Tallinn music hall “Nordea”

On 18 April Tallinn will experience some amazing rock sounds. “Manic Street Preachers” will go on tour to celebrate their famous album`s “Everything Must Go” 20 year anniversary.

“Manic Street Preachers” was formed in 1986, in Wales. Their early combination of androgynous glam imagery, critical social lyrics about “culture, alienation, boredom and despair” and a furious rock sound gained them a loyal following over the years and assured them a cult status.

By the way – the band has already headlined “Positivus” music festival two times.

In Tallinn`s concert they will perform their hits from album “Everything Must Go”, as well as compositions, that have never been played live since recordings in 1996.

  • Tribute to “Led Zeppelin” at “Live Fest” in Kuldiga (LV)

On 6 August one of the central events during “Live Fest” in Kuldiga will be British band`s “Letz Zep” tribute to legendary rock band “Led Zeppelin”.

“Led Zeppelin” has a big influence in today`s “heavy” music. There are dozens of so-called tribute bands that play “Led Zeppelin” songs, but “Letz Zep” is positioning itself as the leader between all of them. The confidence is strengthened with Jimmy Page`s and Robert Plant`s acceptance.

“Letz Zep” plays music from all “Led Zeppelin” albums. In recent years the group has released several DVD`s and CD`s, and performed in four continents, 33 countries.
