Save the Date: Progress Bar - 16 January 2016
We're happy to announce that a new series of events, brought to you by Brighton’s Lighthouse and Amsterdam’s Sonic Acts and Viral Radio, will launch in Amsterdam next year. Part talkshow, part clubnight, Progress Bar makes an exciting shift from the regular to the radical. Providing insight into the creative practice of contemporary culture's most exciting names, from vanguard music producers and filmmakers to trending artists and activists, Progress Bar is an ear-to-the-ground evening of new art, new thinking, new music and, hopefully, new friends. Amsterdam’s first edition will be held at Tolhuistuin. The line-up will include a performance by musical crossover project King Midas Sound consisting of The Bug, singer/poet Roger Robinson, and vocalist Kiki Hitomi, with Austrian guitarist and composer Christian Fennesz. Together, King Midas Sound & Fennesz recently released Edition 1, described as “a slow-building, smoky crescendo of noise” by Holly Dicker in Resident Advisor. The evening will furthermore see a club night featuring Lexxi, Endgame & Kamixlo. These London figureheads are perhaps best known from the infamous Endless club night, which is often cited in the context of giving a "middle finger to the shadowy forces that conspire to shut [UK's clublife] down" (Dazed & Confused).
