WE BLESS THIS MESS from Portugal headline
INTERNATIONAL SOUND INVADERS’ second installment at North London’s Karamel
Following acclaimed live performances in Europe and the US including renowned showcase festivals like Eurosonic Noorderslag, SXSW and Reeperbahn – Porto’s 5-piece WE BLESS THIS MESS bring their adrenaline soaked positivity to the British capital supported by opening act Wushta’s uplifting Lo-fi SynthPop.
Doors 7pm GMT on 17/05/2017 – £6
LONDON, April 20, 2017 — “For fans of Frank Turner, Against Me!, Mumford & Sons and Bob Dylan, there is the joy of We Bless This Mess. The 5-piece from Porto is in fact a solo project by Nelson Graf Reis that takes the punk approach to folk music or equally, plays punk songs according to the ‚less is more‘ philosophy. Nelson’s We Bless This Mess is all about expressing positivity and carpe diem: “We breathe, we are alive. This is the greatest gift.”
Wushta’s joyful live sets mix Lo-fi, Synth Pop and Electronica. The former drummer of Portuguese punk band ‘BlackJackers” has swapped the sticks for keyboards, drum machines and a bass guitar, inciting the audience to celebrate life in the here and now.
International Sound Invasion showcases upcoming musicians from abroad in London. Now more than ever, our purpose is to enrich and strengthen the dialog between different cultures and backgrounds that create this diverse and colorful city, by hosting music events that bring together locals and foreigners in joy, with open minds and hearts.
