Sat 13 June > Rebel Up! SebCat @ Out Loud night, Beursschouwburg, Bxl w/ Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant (UK/FR) &Mocambo (BR/BE)

Hello Brussels!

10990007_10153255344825782_3334741651309786676_o

This saturday a sweet night at Beursschouwburg together with kunstencenter De Vooruit from Ghent as part of the yearly Out Loud festival.
British afropunk-poppers Zun Zun Egui sadly had to cancel their show, but Rebel Up! helped arranging some fine replacements for them, 2 bands even, yay!

We´re proud to present French-British outfit Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant and local Brussels & Ghent afro-heroes Mocambo to fill this night with their special global sounds.

Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant specialises in all global styles with a heavy psychedelic sauce. They bring together world rhythms and moody cinematic moments playing blues and dance pieces, with notable influences from Congolese Soukous, African highlife, Ethiopian jazz, cumbia, séga and a whiff of Middle-East and Turkish Psychedelia to make your head & body spin.


Mocambo
will shake you up with their heavy Afro-Brazilian & urban Afrobeat rhythms. It´s the project by rapper Le Tagarel and composer Tartaruga and joined by our own Brussels artist Témé Tan and several other master musicians. Their strong sound takes you from Angola to Brasil in many colours and spheres. Get ready to rumble with this wild band!

Before, between & after global tunes from around the world by Rebel Up! SebCat

Schedule:
22:00 Mocambo

celeste

Celeste Mariposa is a DJ duo from Lisboa. They started as techno Dj’s but the last couple of years they have become true connoisseurs of music from the ex-portuguese colonies like Angola & Cabo Verde.

Sun & Mon 31 Nov/ 1 dec > 24h Music manifestation: Touche Pas A Mon Jeu De Balle! Action callout!

24h

ahoy folks,

Brussels callout for action!

No to a car park under the place du Jeu de Balle! 

The city of Brussels has recently decided to build four new underground car parks in the city center (Nouveau Marché aux Grains, Yser, place Rouppe and place du Jeu de Balle), linked by a „mini-ring“. This project is not based on any study and does not respond to any needs: in the numerous car parks in the city center, 6000 to 7500 parking spaces are not occupied. Such a projet, if realised, will disfigure several squares and places in Brussels, create additional traffic in neighbourhoods already congested and will cause years of suffering for the population of Brussels due to construction work.

We are merchants, shopkeepers, residents of the Marolles and all of Brussels, lovers of this neighbourhood and consumersatits fleamarket. We opposethe construction of this unnecessary car park under the place du Jeu de Balle with all our forces. Its realisation would have horrendous consequences for the fleamarket, the local businesses, the residents and for the existing diversity of this neighbourhood. Instead ofanother big construction site, the place du Jeu de Balle and its historic underground deserve to be classified. Unparalleled in the world, the fleamarket, which takes place regularly since 1873, and the resulting activities in its surroundings, constitute an economic, social and cultural heritage to be saved by all means possible.

sebcat rebel up
DJ SEBCAT (Rebel Up! Bxl)

On his own tonight as LeBlanc is away on business… Bonnefooi says > This guy is one of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music. Sebcat is also a fulltime musical nexus, the way he blends his global grooves together in a party he also re-arranges, feeds and stimulates musical culture. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!
