As announced, ten years after their very first concert, on Saturday we'll take back to Luxembourg Italian super cult combo CALIBRO 35!!
This week we have started a countdown to the show: daily posts are taking you through the (first) ten years of history of this awesome band, sampled by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z, on stage worldwide with the likes of Roy Ayers, Muse, Sun Ra Arkestra, Sharon Jones, Thundercat, Headhunters and as unique musicians with, amongst others, PJ Harvey, Mike Patton, John Parish, Stewart Copeland and Nic Cester (The Jet).
Today we deal with Any Resemblance to Real Persons or Actual Facts is Purely Coincidental, third full length album by the band, recorded in Brooklyn following their participation to SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. The album was released in early 2012 by Nublu in the US and by Tannen Records/Rough Trade in Europe. The title track has been sampled by Dr Dre on his 2015 Compton Soundtrack.
In 2013 the band flew to Brazil for the first time to play Nublu Jazz Festival, sharing the stage with jazz funk giants The Headhunters, Robert Glasper and Roy Ayers.
They also opened the concert at Olympic Stadium in Turin of English rock band Muse: Calibro's mastermind Tommaso Colliva is their sound engineer since a few years, and has won a Grammy Award in 2015 for Drones.
We are happy to take them back to Luxembourg, this Saturday: the line-up of the night includes one of the most interesting new acts of Luxembourg, afro post-punk quartet No Metal in this Battle, and two support DJs, KustonBeater & LeGenco.
Come enjoy this great night of music, at Rotondes, on Saturday, May 19th: here the FB event, pre-sales are online here!!
