Go By Brooks at Street Photography Slide Night 2015

slide_night

This Thursday we have to be good-looking … There will be a lot¬†of photographers around ūüėČ

Why? Well, we’re looking forward to be special guests at the 3rd edition of “Slide Night 2015″.¬†The “Street Photography Luxembourg” collective is happy to invite you to its third “Slide Night’ which will take place

>  8th October 2015
>  in the new Rotondes

The collective will present slideshows of its eight members, as well as those of guests chosen among its friends and followers. Join us for a journey across Luxembourg’s streets at the encounter of its people living their daily lives or celebrating life at the fullest.¬†Most pictures are made spontaneously; they freeze decisive moments that are sometimes poetic, other times empathetic and sometimes even enraging, but they most often capture the feeling of a particular place at a very particular moment.

The Street Photography Luxembourg collective was created in March 2013 to provide a more accurate and broader visibility to a form of photography that is spontaneous and captures the atmosphere of the streets. Street Photography is as old as photography itself and has been marked deeply by mythical photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau and Sabine Weiss in France, or Saul Leiter, Vivian Maier and Gary Winogrand in the United States. With the surge of the digital age and the Internet, street photography has known a worldwide increasing success these past few years.

The eight photographers of the SPL collective are: Paul Bintner, Candi Carrera, Veronique Fixmer, Paulo Lobo, Dirk Mevis, Christophe Van Biesen, Jeff Mouton and David Phillips.

This weekend, we will play a special gig that we haven’t done before: We will play three¬†Go By Brooks songs at “Aalt Stadhaus” in Differdange. What’s so special about it?

Well, first, two songs will be performed together with two¬†orchestras, the “Harmonie Prince Guillaume” (HPG) from Differdange and the “Harmonie Lyc√©e Aline Mayrisch“. There¬†will be more than 60 musicians on stage. Our drummer Gilles has made some¬†fine arrangements. It’s for the 3rd¬†time that this collaboration between the 2 orchestras will take place. It will be the highlight of the anniversary celebrations of HPG.

Secondly, there will be three¬†other bands performing with the big orchestra ‚Äď Three¬†bands that are very different from each other: “Five Cent Cones” play Pop/Rock, “Lost in Pain” play Metal and “de L√§b” are best known for their Luxembourgish Hip Hop mix. And in between, it’s us :-)

Go By Brooks Acoustic Gigs, March/April 2015

In 2013 and 2014 we have been playing some nice acoustic gigs. For example the sessions at “Goodbye Monopol 2″ or the release of Karma Magazine at the Freeman T. Porter Shop in Metz are worth remembering.

Lastly, we have played some electrified concerts around, but now we are coming back to the fun and more delicate unplugged concept with two concerts:

7th March at Choco / Hollerich

Our support musician for  the acoustic night at Choco will be Kevin Heinen. Kevin will play a small set from 21:45 to 22:15 and afterwards we will take over.
