Picasso and Antiquity. Line and Clay
YPARXEI PROVLIMA AMALIA
Two weeks before the end of the "Picasso and Antiquity. Line and Clay" exhibition on October 20, the Museum of Cycladic organizes a Cycladic Late Night. Οn Thursday, October 3, from 21:00 until 00:00, visitors will be able to visit the exhibition with reduced ticket, drinks, DJ sets and live performances. Simultaneously, musicians of the Athenian music scene such as CHICKN, Nikos Kyriazopoulos and Turbo Teeth, will present three different live acts at Stathatos Mansion. Concurrently, at the Cycladic Café, Yorgia Karidi and Yparxei Provlima Amalia will select music in a special DJ set made for the event.
CHICKN is an Athens-based rock group formed back in 2012. Fed by genuine curiosity and passion for psychedelic music, the band started gigging extensively without any discography, media coverage or particular reason, building a strong word of mouth among the city’s live audience. Since then, it has been seven years of experimentation, explosive gigs, three EP’s, two albums and dozens of rotating band members who formed, deformed and re-formed CHICKN. Their debut self-titled double LP that sold out two pressings in no time, stands as landmark of all the above. While staying restless and for the needs of their sophomore LP “WOWSERS!”, CHICKN’s line-up solidified in their current five-piece form that not only recorded it but performed it live by getting on the road as well. CHICKN so far have embarked into four European Tours in Greece, Turkey, The Balkans, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Holland, Spain and the UK. In June 2019 they performed at the annual ACNE Film party in Cannes. Currently they are planning their fifth tour in support of the new album Bel Esprit, out in October 18th, via Inner Ear Records. CHICKN have shared the stage with Damo Suzuki, Ty Segall, Acid Mothers Temple, the Budos Band, Preoccupations, Moon Duo, Underground Youth, Duchess Says, The Cavemen, Thor Harris, Surfbort, Vibravoid and more.
Stathatos Mansion | Ground Floor
Turbo Teeth is the solo project by Giorgos Axiotis, member of Free Piece of Tape, Tom Cruisin’, Balinese Beast. The highly idiosyncratic, unstable and addictive sound of T.T eventuates in transient deca-dance vignettes and consists of dysfunctional & fast tempo sliding cut-up rhythms, mangled loops, gonjo dance fantasies, dental hop dreams, and mutated mover spins. His most complete work until now, the vinyl EP Yellow Equals One, was released from Untitled-1 on late October 2017. Recently a cover version of the EP has also been released with contributions from Bill Anagnos, Echo Canyon, Sister Overdrive and Elisabet Vogler (Panos Alexiadis). Since then he has contributed various tracks and remixes in compilations locally & abroad.
