Gig Information

Fortress Europe return to The Wine Cellar to celebrate the release of their long-anticipated debut album, Old World, an album densely packed with intriguing and baffling musical monoliths, each one a genre-defying slab of sound orbiting outside of time, blissfully ignorant of prevailing musical trends.

Combining avant-garde rock sensibilities with Balkan music traditions, Fortress Europe features yearning violin, snaking time signatures and Balkan and Middle Eastern folk instrumentation colliding with jagged guitars, squalling sax, haunted retro synths, and apocalyptic bass and drums, all performed by musicians from acts as varied as Demons of Noon, Tami Nielson, The Black Quartet and Luger Boa.

Featuring special guests, and with support from Oksun Ox, the one-man-band act of Ben Holmes (Drorgan/The Hoolie Buzzes/Spacesuit etc), bringing twangy scuzzed out guitar, casio boogaloo, live finger beats, foot thumping rumble, songs from the domestic disaster zone sung with a passionate croon and frenzied strum.

Doors at 8pm
Oxsun Ox at 8:30
Fortress Europe at 9:15
