Next Friday, August 13, we will join Casa do Capitão and prepare for the beginning of another edition of the festival. Starting at 18:30 with two concerts by Solar Corona and First Breath After Coma and, to wind up, a DJ Set by the IndieMusic Programmers and Cláudia Guerreiro, Linda Martini’s bass player.
Solar Corona Elektrische Maschine is a multiform rock music collective from Barcelos. In this concert, the group replaces drums, guitar and amplifiers with electronic instruments. Those are the new percussions and amplification methods that will fill Casa do Capitão’s Terrace at 18:30. They are also present in Caudal, Luís Sobreiro’s documentary that registers the band’s return on stage, after a year of interruption due to the pandemic, in what is an “unrepeatable concert”, in programmer Helena César’s words. A world premiere in competition in this year’s IndieMusic section.
Meanwhile, at Fábrica do Pão (access through the Casa do Capitão entrance at Rua do Grilo, 119), at 19:30, the second phase of this warm-up begins with a concert by the Leiria group First Breath After Coma. One of the most represented bands in the Portuguese indie music scene, they were the foundation of Tiago Gomes’ We Were Floating High, another world premiere in competition, and in which they see themselves followed by a film crew during a very busy 2019, with concerts and collaborations.
As the night falls, and between 20:30 and 23:00 on the terrace of Casa Capitão, there will be a DJ set by IndieMusic’s four programmers – Carlos Ramos, Filipa Henriques, Helena César and Mário Lopes – who also invite Cláudia Guerreiro, bassist of the band Linda Martini, who is part of the IndieMusic jury this year. Together, they will mirror the festival’s programme with a DJ set that will ignite the celebration of one of the festival’s most exciting sections. After 23:00, the party goes on with IndieMusic’s playlist, a sample of the several bands and artists present in the national and international films IndieMusic has to offer this year.
