02.05. PORTION CONTROL + PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE @ Kavka
BodyBeats Productions & Kavka present:
PORTION CONTROL
PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE
SUPPORT: AKALOTZ
Both bands should need no introduction anymore ... Portion Control as being pioneers of electro-industrial music from the early '80's inspiring bands like Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly and Orbital. Plastic Noise Experience emerging with the second (German) wave in the early '90's with 'Transmission', a release that quickly became a cult album. Meanwhile both bands kept on supplying us with countless dance-floor killer tracks. PorCon with classic like 'Chew You To Bits', 'The Great Divide' and the more recent 'Amnesia' & 'Deadstar' and PNE with tracks like 'Gold', 'Memory Flow' and 'Moving Hands'. Both bands are coming to Antwerp to promote their brand new releases as 'Unrest In the Grime' (Portion Control) & 'Therapy' (PNE). Support for this night is Akalotz, an EBM combo from Germany.

16.05. JOY DIVISION / IAN CURTIS Memorial Night @ JH Wommel

BodyBeats productions proudly presents::
  
JOY DIVISION / IAN CURTIS
Memorial Night 
LIVE CONCERT: CURTIS :TRIBUTE BAND

 
In remembrance of the 34st Anniversary of Ian Curtis's death and … the end of Joy Division, we invite you to come, remember and pay tribute to this legendary person and his band… And thus keeping their music alive! Speaking of keeping their music alive ... Curtis is the name of a Belgian Joy Division tribute band that succeeds to perform those cult classic songs, sounding  scarily close to the original. After this there will be a genuine New-Wave afterparty with of course a(n) (un)healty dose of Joy Division spun by DJ BORG.
 
28.05. NINE INCH NAILS - Pretty after Party @ Trix - Antwerp
 
BodyBeats Productions & Trix present:
NINE INCH NAILS
-PRETTY AFTER PARTY-
After the success of the Depeche Mode After Show Party we decided to repeat this when NINE INCHE NAILS is playing our hometown Antwerp.
What can you expect? Well an after party with the best danceable Wave/(US)Industrial/
 Alternative/Electro that is out there and of course a(n) (un)healthy portion of NIN & NIN related stuff spun by our resident DJ BORG!
Good to know is that the music center Trix is located only 1500m from the Lotto Arena where NIN will play the very same night. 

And don't worry about the day after ....
29.05 is a public holiday!!! So let's party hard!
Damage: € 5 
 
 
20.06 Lavvi Ebbel - Guns & Crêpe Flambeé Tour @ Kavka - Antwerp - B

BodyBeats productions proudly presents::
  
LAVVI EBBEL
Guns & Crêpe Flambeé Tour
 
ILavvi Ebbel was without doubt one of the most controversial bands of the Belgian New-Wave movement. In the early '80, the band gained the attentions of many with their successful singles like 'Give Me a Gun' and 'Victoria'. The band soon gained a solid live reputation and combination of guitarists (Marc De Wit and Chris Van Ransbeeck), pianist (Bea Van Ransbeeck), drummer Eric White, singer Luckas Vander Taelen, backing vocalist Kristien D' Haeger, backed by the brass player Jan Weuts gave them an unique and original sound. The group ceased to exist in 1983.
Now, 30 years later Lavvi Ebbel is back in the original line-up, reinforced with Kloot Per W on bass.
