Viet Cong live
Chickn will open the evening
The Canadian band Viet Cong are coming for their first concert to Athens on Wednesday September 2nd 2015. The concert opens with the Greek band Chickn.
Viet Cong is a canny fusion of four quite distinct voices from their home town of Calgary, Alberta. Featuring former members of the much-loved —but sadly defunct— band Women, and members of Chad VanGaalen’s backing band, Viet Cong offers up an intriguing mixture of sharply-angled rhythm workouts and euphoric ‘60s garage pop-esque melodies. This open-ended framework is balanced with a penchant for drone-y, VU-styled downer moments, altogether spinning what has been called “easily one of the best new Canadian bands in quite some time.” On stage, Viet Cong is hugely engaging, delivering pop gems and instrumental acrobatics with equal aplomb, clearly delighting in the navigation of these catchy, intricate songs. Viet Cong are currently working on a full length debut LP.
Chickn is a band from Athens, Greece formed in 2012 for a specific reason that they cannot recall. Their first rehearsals and rough recordings could be described as minimal/ kraut/ improv. After many changes in their form, currently Chickn is a modular body composed by a certain kind of artists. Chickn tends to expand, but it shrinks as well.
