////////////// ’20 Guilders’ – Cosmic Acid folk scenestars Suzuki Junzo and Mitsuru Tabata from Tokyo (JP).
Mitsuru Tabata’s musical career is as bright and unusual as the musician himself, involved in the dawning of BOREDOMS, ZENI GEVA, and ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE all legendary bands and gems of Japan’s avant-garde. Suzuki Junzo, known for his celestial guitar solos and from the group MIMINOKOTO with releases on PSF, joins Tabata together to form their duo 20 GUILDERS. Since 2007 they have been exploring their common roots – Psych Rock and Psych Folk, with guitars and vocals.
In Japan, the duo has two studio album releases from GYUUNE CASSETTE, as well as running a label Gulden Muzik. In US, they release LPs and cassettes from labels such as Nod and Smile Records, Eye Vibe Records. The duo’s first instrumental guitar ambient album “il grande silenzio” was released from Gulden Muzik in 2018. Apart from their signature songs, the duo performs in experimental sets with their ambient guitar music. In April 2019 they released an acoustic studio live album, “Acoustic Motherfuckers.” The electric and cosmic folk duo sets out on their first international tour May 2019.

Doors open at 20:30
 
Helicopter 
Beatrijsstraat 10, Den Haag (entrance through the blue gate)
 
SAMMAN PADREES 
is the combined effort of Samantha Rees and Manuel Padding.
They will show a set of collages under the banner “Constant Struggle”.
Riffing on themes of hindsight perspective, nature persisting and trying (and failing) to understand what it means to be human in a slowly
disintegrating world.  Possibility of a sculpture being present is there.
Live action music by:
 
SLAYLOR MOON (Can)
Free form explorations into a pulsating groove zone, taking time to
enfold a soothing foot shuffle universe where floating around and
breathing fresh life force enhancing mind/body jams should be time
spent eternal. Lineage from laying down solid concrete foundation to withstand ripping  Shearing Pinx blasts to riding bubbly The Courtneys waves into sunshine youth wishfulness with a fringe to match.
 
PETRONN SPHENE  (Eng)
Timeless sonic witchcraft connecting pagan eternal spirit with mind
altering electronic music, adopting a “hard gaan” aesthetics with a
“The Drugs” as a communication method for altered ADHD full blast
personal wisdom projected straight into the soul, transcendent intellectual intensity. Think psychedelic time warped gabber and power new age.
Solo space pod escape from Urocerus Gigas of Guttersnipe.
 
THE SUNSHINE LOUNGE (Sco)
Embracing both the up and the down in a solar eclipse of the heart sort
of way, once “The Taste” grabs hold, there is no turning back. Whether
banging pots and pans or navigate modular electric pulses through
self made instruments there is always the awareness that darkness is
ever present. To embrace this darkness and to be able to still sound so
life affirming is pure raging, “Eat The Breid”.
This evening will be the presentation of his new tape “Mountain On Legs”
