European Summer Tour 2019

Km28, Berlin, Germany, June 29
After some individual EU adventures, it was great to come together and get the tour underway at KM28 in Berlin. Thanks to Spill (Tony Buck and Magda Mayas) for their amazing set! Next stop is Stockholm, where we'll be playing at Graddo Musikfest 2019 (July 6th) then Microfiche: Australiensk Jazz i Reaktorhallen R1 (July 7th).

Gräddö Musikfest, Sweden, July 6
Nestled in the Swedish countryside, gig no.2 went down a treat @ Gräddö Musikfest 2019. Huge thanks to Moa and Christina for facilitating such a wholesome weekend of music, food and lake-side sauna 

Reaktorhallen R1, Stockholm, Sweden, July 7
Late last year, Phillippa told us of a venue in Stockholm called Reaktorhallen R1, a de-commissioned, underground nuclear reactor that's been repurposed into a performance space for experimental music. We agreed that it'd be pretty cool to play there, and maybe even to build a small tour around it. With the help of Phillippa and Patrik Jarlestam, we turned that idea into a reality last week! Thanks to everyone that came out to the concert, it was a really special one for us.

Literature Cafe, Copenhagen, Denmark, July 11
We're in Copenhagen hanging with some fellow Australian travellers and the bliss levels are out of control. Our tour is almost over, but we've got one last gig tonight as part of Copenhagen Jazz Festival and we're stoked to have our good friend Freya Schack-Arnott joining us - if you're in town we'd love to see you too!

With Bo5N at Johnson st. Jazz, April 4
Many many thanks to everyone that came out last Thursday to hear our shared bill with Band of Five Names! It was a really special night for us and we were glad to share it with you all.
John Shand has written a review of the gig for the Sydney Morning Herald which you can find here. Of Microfiche, he says:
"...[Microfiche's] six members have arrived at their own sophisticated, suspenseful and sometimes thrilling ways of combining composition and improvisation, with keen instincts for orchestration."
