Blockshot (D), Ludovik Material (SLO)

After the concert: DJanes Roots Daughters (SLO/HR)

In April 2007, Blockshot played their debut gig and have since released a 7″/CD-EP entitled Polyglamorous and an album called After the Beep at F-Spin Records. Influenced by early Riot-Grrrls as Sleater-Kinney and Bikini Kill, they try and merge the old school fierce attitude of such bands with the more quirky and innovative pop history written by bands such as Sonic Youth or Fugazi, adding to their classic rock line-up a keyboard that sounds at times sinister at times nerdy.

Essentially Post-Riot-Grrrl, they feel a strong commitment to the scene with some of them being involved in all sorts of socio-cultural/socio-political projects ranging from putting on gigs, doing zines, Ladyfest or feminist direct action, which is also reflected in their lyrics and has earned them support spots for such great bands as Jenny Hoyston’s Paradise Island, Rhythm King and Her Friends, Quasi, Kaia Wilson and Partyline.

So far they’ve toured some parts of Europe with gigs in the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, France, Belgium, UK, Ireland and the Czech Republic, SE Asia with gigs in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines and will soon head to the West Coast of the US.

Ludovik Material is a fresh and promising trio that started its musical path in 2011 on the Club Marathon tour (‘Klubski maraton’), organized by Radio Študent. Their electro-pop-noise is provocative and involving social critique. One of the biggest assets of the band is the vocalist Tina, who stands out vocally and lyrically, as well as on stage with her performative movement.
