The Blog Parties,Kirsten Ibsen Kure,A Space Oddity,Ron Mandos,Olympus Pen Story,Summer 2008 Pictures

The Blog Parties is a monthly showcase that brings the sound of musicblogs to Ekko in Utrecht and Winston in Amsterdam.

6th (Ekko) and friday the 7th (Winston).

On this first edition the main act is Dead Pixels from London. Dead Pixels bring reminiscence to Joy Division, but somehow seem to avoid sounding like Editors or Interpol. Maybe because of their female singer or because of their electro influences. Sounding dark and catchy at the same time, they are a different sound in the overcrowded London music scene , curious the fact of their diverse backgrounds including Egypt, France, UK and fronted by Danish Lone Blomhoj.
