Concert: tUnE-yArDs (USA), Kiuriki (SLO)

MARCH 8TH – Celebrating International Women’s Day!

KUD Mreža-Red Dawns and ŠKUC-Buba present


tUnE-yArDs (USA), Kiuriki (SLO)

After the concert: DJane Ninja & DJane Fumarola

ATTENTION! Due to illness in the band, Kiuriki had to cancel their performance. Instead, KIKIRIKI (Nina F.) is going to play solo!

The brainchild of Merrill Garbus, tUnE-yArDs began life as dictaphone recordings which were then painstakingly mixed down on GarageBand to create the opening gambit, her debut albumBiRd-BrAiNs. Initially released on a limited LP run through Marriage Records with screen-printed sleeves recycled from thrift store bargain bins, it wasn’t long until others took notice and she soon signed a worldwide deal with 4AD. The remastered album with extra tracks was formally released in late 2009. The Guardian, whilst awarding it 5/5, called her “the find of the year.” In 2011, that most certainly rings true with the release of her new album, w h o k i l l, made in collaboration with bass player Nate Brenner.

Lyrically, Garbus explores constructs of femininity and sexuality with the threat of violence that lurks on the streets of Oakland where she now lives. Using loop pedals, two mics, a snare drum, a ukulele and her distinctive voice (she’s spent time teaching singing in Kenya), she started to build quite a reputation for her live performances with Nate. Anyone who has seen them play will attest to them being nothing short of incredible live.




Kiuriki is a self-proclaimed “crisis duo”, a free-punk-synth-thrash impro act performed by percussionist Uroš Simončič and Nina F. alias Kikiriki on synth, theremin and vocals. Nina, known for her noisy one-woman-band performances and as well as her past work with bands Krvojemalci, Pilule, Zgrešena Investicija, Be Creep and Oberiu joined forces with improviser Uroš Simončič in 2011 when they released their debut album Morning After. It was released by the local independent label Eat This Production where it is also available for download.



After the concert: DJane Ninja‘s selection of electro, electrohouse, electroclash, disco and funky beats and Fumarola’s DJ set of danceable and rollicking beats of indie-rock, indietronica, dance/postpunk, new wave and other genres.
