Lev Tigrovich" concert

Saturday, July 13 | 9:15 p.m.

They actually wanted to write an opera with lots of synthesizers about the 1980s in Hungary before the fall of the Soviet Union. But then came the pandemic - the opera was never performed, but the magical music, fortunately, remained. A hybrid of retro, timeless and modern, from disco bangers and pathos ballads to rumbly earworms.

Reading Mirrianne Mahn
"Issa".

Malummí" concert

Saturday, July 27 | 8:30 p.m.

As warm as the blood running through its veins: "Blood", Malummí's debut album, was created in Brazil, Italy and Croatia. No wonder the body temperature of this work is above average. Larissa Rapold's band opens up musical worlds that deal with (family) love, inner turmoil, chaos and fate.

EDNA" concert

Saturday, August 03 | 9:15 p.m.

The musicians incorporate their personal experiences into sometimes political and socially critical lyrics, which they then express with energetic, almost hyperactive music - angry and loud, yet conciliatory. And cuddle puddle sums it all up with its spherical guitar riffs, pulsating basic beat and wide melodic arcs. The band was born out of a desire to hang out more with TINFA people.

Concert "Lizzysloaf"

Saturday, August 17 | 8:30 p.m.

In the year 2023, a very special flowerbed opens up in Zurich's vibrant music scene - and the band Lizzysloaf has seen the light of day. Together, they begin to transform warmth and security into indie-inspired songs that, on cloudy (and sunny) days, give us memories of all the things we've never experienced.
