Sun 26/02 > Rebel Up @ Recyclart 36 hour marathon party, Bxl

yo folks,

The iconic Brussels venue Recyclart is closing down next week in their train station venue after 20 good years due to an unapologetic Infrabel 🙁
But we do expect them to open up elsewhere in the city, think north edge 😉

This calls for a final party blow out. Starting saturday night midnight, there will be a 36 hour marathon till monday afternoon 13h.

A full lineup with many Bxl dj’s and live bands, a programme to check out.
Rebel Up will be there as well, ofcourse! We will spin sunday late night, for those hardcore enough to come out and party with us. 
Rebel Up Leblanc at 2am, followed by SebCat at 3am.

Rebel Up! promotes > concert Sonido Gallo Negro (Mexico) @ Recyclart, Bxl

Sonido Gallo Negro is a nine-piece combo from Mexico City. With Farfisa organ, theremin and a pack of percussion, they combine cumbia sonidera, huayno, boogaloo and chicha with psychedelics and spaghetti western soundtracks, garagerock and 60’s surf. The collective signed in 2011 as the first latino band at Glitterbeat Records (Bombino, Tamikrest, …) and has two wonderful albums in the meanwhile. Exotic, psychedelic, but not to be missed. The black cock will crow! Spooky & hot!

with support by Mexican-Bruxellois Memo Pimiento and cumbialista Gaetano Dub.

21:00 Doors + DJ Gaetano Dub
21:30 Memo Pimiento (Mex)

Thu + Fri + Sat > Arte Chicha de Ruta Mare, Peru @ Recyclart, Bxl + Pakebo, Liege

hola todas!
DOSSIER BELGICAthis week, 3 special Peruvian events in Brussels & Liege
For the first time in Belgium > street art collective Ruta Mare will showcase their art between 17 and 20 november!

Yefferson and Kelly form Ruta Mare, a duo that embodies an exemplary renewal of the Peruvian Chicha culture. Created in 2012, around their common passion for the popular culture of the streets of Lima, Ruta Mare develops artistic works that implement the reminiscences of a collective Peruvian imagination. By creating gigantic mural frescos or serigraphs, they readily mix popular imagery and traditional motifs in favour of a resolutely urban and committed aesthetic.

Yefferson and Kelly are particularly aware of the graphic identity they convey and claim without any complexity their belonging to the Chicha culture, notably through a fabulous typographic work. Ruta Mare brings graphic design in urban space in their own original way and always taking the art of Chicha back to its roots: art of the people for the people.

On Thrusday 17 nov in Brussels @ Recyclart with an expo + projection & talk at the Licky My Typo night. Make sure you reserve or come on time, as it will sell out!

Fri 7 Oct > Rebel Up! SebCat @ Haunted Folklore, Recyclart Bxl

Marisa fire 1

This Friday, Haunted Folklore concert night at Recyclart.
Rebel Up! SebCat will play spiritual & ethnic listening tunes before & after the concert.

Marisa Anderson (US – Portland)
All traditional American guitar styles played in virtuoso and amazing ways! A mixture of improvisation and fluid compositions, with references ranging from minimalism and drone gospel, blues, country and jazz. At nineteen, Marisa began to wander through the US to eventually settle, years later, in Portland, Oregon. Basically she followed a classical guitar training, but has created her unique own style by playing in country music groups, jazz and even the circus. In 2009 she released her first album, ‘The Golden Hour’, followed by ‘Mercury’ (2011), ‘Traditional and Public Domain Songs’ (2013) and ‘Into the Light’ (2015). Recently she was asked to make recordings for Beth Ditto and soundtracks fro films. Let yourself be transported by this hypnotic music!
