Summer might be over but Belgium’s glimming with activities again these days. Aside from our Subbacultcha shows we want you to know what else is going on this month music-wise. This September we asked Lindsi from Girls go BOOM, a concert organizer and booking agency putting all-female fronted indie and punk bands on stage, to fill us in on the events we should most definitely go to this month.
Leffingeleuren always has a nice program but this year I’m going for one name in particular: Idles. I’m obsessed with their delbut album. I feel there’s a resurgence of really good punk bands coming up in Britain, and I suppose shitty politicians have something to do with that.
Last year at Breda Brash, some of the Girls go BOOM crew crashed the backstage, missed our train back home and ended up having a great weekend there. This year we want to see if Thierry wants to make us some cheese sandwiches again while we watch The Guru Guru.
Cosmic Slime is a very young collective of two girls who have an amazing talent to spot underground garage talent. With Gomme, Mane and Venus Tropicaux on their next line-up, they pretty much knocked it out of the parc.
The Beursschouwburg has put together a very interesting and diverse program on the state of current feminism that’s running until the end of the year. Their website says it’s going to be one big feminist party and that’s just the kind of party I like.
Come see Girls go BOOM: Dirty Girls Edition on 1 September at In De Ruimte, Ghent, for free for Subbacultcha members. Become one here.
