Sherpa the Tiger (UKR)
A special night with an Ukranian (!) live band performing downstairs at 21. Entrance is incredibly free!
9pm LIVE: Sherpa The Tiger is a brand-new band hailing from Lviv, Ukraine. Equipped with decrepit Soviet synthesisers, the four-piece combine a love of minimalist ambient music and the kosmische grooves that came pumping out of Eastern Europe in the 60s/70s.
“The whole project is inspired mostly by the Eastern European Krautrock stage of the late 1960s and 1970s but we also tried to refresh those old-school ideas with a more modern electronic/ambient approach – with a bit of a psychedelic pop vibe too.”
On the album ‘Great Vowel Shift’, Sherpa The Tiger’s synth-driven soundscapes are a thing of wonder, the band credit this to just two pieces of hardware which in total cost no more than $120: a vintage Soviet synthesiser called ‘Elektronika EM-25’ from the 1980s and an electric organ ‘Vermona Formation 2’, which was made in the late 1970s in East Germany. Listen to the lovely sounds below!
Don’t miss this unique concert of psychedelic lights and hypnotic, endless yet danceable rock from the golden era of Eastern European synthesisers!
