The highlight of this week is, of course, the concert organized by “Skaņu mežs” by the influential American band SWANS and talented folkrock guitarist James Blackshaw that will take place at the VEF Culture Palace on Ropažu iela 2 on May 13 at 8PM. But at the little and cozy “Skaņu mežs” venue on Miera iela 12 (Miera iela is the new mainstay of Latvian alternative culture) there will be events throughout the weekend. First one on Thursday is a very special DJ night by Toms Grēviņš (from 11PM), the famous independent music presenter from Radio 101. On Friday, parallel to SWANS concert there will be DJ night by the soul and jazz connoisseur Elvi Soulsystem and instrumental hip-hop by 2 Instrumenti (from 8PM). Saturday we will offer more serious music by the your and talented electrocacoustic composer Platons Buravickis and mellow experimental electronica by the experienced and acknowledged Sound Meccano.
