Two Rudy duos and a triple exhibition

Rudy Trouvé will perform in Antwerp today as well as tomorrow as half of two different musical duos.

Tonight, Thursday the 6th of June, he will play with beatnik extraordinaire Gunter Nagels as a support act for Jan Ducheyne & Noodzakelijk Kwaad at Arenberg in the city centre.

Tomorrow, Friday the 7th, he will play with keyboard wizard Walter Hus at Madam Fortuna in Borgerhout.

Furthermore, on June 26th he will take part in an exhibition with works by his brother Alfred Trouvé, Stef Kamil Carlens and – evidently – himself. The exhibition will run until the 13th of July at Museumstraat25 in Antwerp and feature a concert by iH8 Camera on Saturday 29 June.

Dead Man Ray are back in business

As most of you may already know, 2018 just about ended with the very unexpected announcement of the imminent return of the legendary Belgian band Dead Man Ray.

After a 16 year hiatus, an ep titled “EEN” was released by PIAS records and is now available on vinyl at Morbus GravisFat Kat and Tune Up (Antwerp) as well as Bilbo (Leuven and online). According to the band’s Facebook page, more stores will follow.

Those not living in Belgium may consider ordering through our friends at the Jezus Factory.

If you would rather stream or download “EEN”, you can do so by clicking here.

Dead Man Ray will release a full album in March of 2019 and present it live at Brussels’ Ancienne Belgique on the 25th of April. Tickets are available here.
