Tonight ‘Birth of Joy’ bring their self proclaimed sixties on steroids/phychedelic organ rock&roll to de Gudde Wëllen. After playing live extensively over the last few years Birth of Joy have racked up an impressive cv having played the likes of SXSW, CMJ, CMW and Eurosonic to name just a few, as well as 90+ shows last year world wide. Their high-octane show in such intimate surroundings of de Gudde Wëllen should not be missed.
Also playing tonight and tomorrow at Konrad’s is Israel’s own Roy Dahan. Born and raised in the Israeli village of Corazim, Roy Dahan has emerged as a new and unique voice in the independent Israeli music scene. Roy’s new album “The Man in My Head” was released in September 2013. That same year he was selected as the only Israeli artist to perform at the “Liverpool Sound City” Festival.
“For anyone unaware Roy is not just a one off as a musician in his native Israel but a very big tip of an enormous all-encompassing iceberg and his songs speak of a certain quality that goes beyond borders and checkpoints and instead reaches out for a truth in the rarest of human lives, understanding without damnin…” (Liverpool Sound and Vision, Ian D Hall).

Dilla with instruments ranging from vibraphone, guzheng (Chinese harp), turntables, exotic percussion, voice and typewriter, he quickly received the reception he deserved, with his Beats Unraveled video sessions hitting more than a million views.
