Posted in Whathaveyou on January 16th, 2020 by JJ Koczan

With early-bird tickets already sold through and regular ol’ two-day tickets on their way out, it’s never too early for the Munich-based There might be times when someone says to you, ďCan you http://www.unifertes.com/?spa-salon-business-plan?Ē At some point, this is pretty flattering.

Seems likely, for example, that¬†The Heavy Eyes will be touring Europe around this appearance, and they might even make other fest appearances at well, whether it’s at the also-Sound of Liberation-presented¬†Up in Smoke in Switzerland, or¬†Desertfest Belgium or anywhere else. These things will all come together over the course of this year as they do, and I always look forward to seeing how it all plays out, who’s doing a one-off and who’s going to be on a weeks-long stretch, etc. I’m a nerd for that kind of stuff, if it wasn’t obvious.

And I think it probably was.

Here’s the announcement, short and sweet, per the social medias:

Keep it Low 2019 Announces Day Split; Adds The Obsessed, Bongripper & Mantar

Posted in Whathaveyou on April 23rd, 2019 by JJ Koczan

keep it low 2019

Well, if we’ve learned anything so far in 2019, it’s that¬†The Obsessed will be spending significant amounts of it in Europe. The Maryland doom forebears have already been confirmed for¬†Freak Valley and¬†SonicBlast Moledo this summer, and they’ll be back this Fall — assuming they ever leave — with slots at¬†Up in Smoke and now¬†Keep it Low¬†2019. This is in addition to July UK dates with¬†Alunah and an appearance next month in New Mexico for¬†Monolith on the Mesa. Oh yeah, and there was that tour they did in March with¬†C.O.C. and¬†Crowbar too, so, you know, not a little bit of touring in general.

Their joining the ranks for¬†Keep it Low 2019 comes with the festival’s announcement of the day splits — that’s who plays when — and the further confirmations of¬†Bongripper and Mantar, thereby assuring the ground will shake and fury (and spit) will be spit with aggressive purpose as the fest plays out. There are a host of other righteous acts confirmed —¬†Lo-Pan!¬†Nebula!¬†The Machine! etc. — so check out the lineup below, and here’s the latest from¬†Sound of Liberation, which is presenting the whole affair:

keep it low 2019 poster

As promised, here come the day-split, the single-day tickets and 3 new awesome bands!

We thought it was about time to bring more darkness and ferocity into our 2019 line-up, and therefore we are proud to tell you that German heaviest duo MANTAR, Illinois’ monster of riff BONGRIPPER & Maryland’s doom pioneer The Obsessed join the bill today! We still have a few bands to announce, but this 7th edition of Keep It Low Festival 2019 is shaping up nicely, isn’t it? :)

Check out the poster below to know the day-split, and get your tickets here https://www.keepitlow.de/tickets-keep-it-low while you still can! 2-day passes are gone, it was faster than ever, and we’re sure those day tickets won’t last until the Summer!

Keep it Low 2019: Truckfighters, Ecstatic Vision, Ruff Majik and Instrument Added

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 27th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

keep it low 2019 banner

One of the hazards in being so behind on shit all the time — all. the. time. — is temporal displacement. Thus, yesterday when I posted about Truckfighters making their reunion official and playing Keep it Low 2019 this Fall as a part of that process, that went up first, but actually came after the announcement that the Munich-based festival would host them this October. Does it matter? No. Is anyone other than me paying the slightest bit of attention? I can’t imagine they are. But, you know, temporal displacement. Someone call the DTI.

Good luck with that reference.

While I’m talking to myself, let me encourage you (me) wholeheartedly to dig into the new Ruff Majik single beneath the announcement from Keep it Low that follows. They have a new album coming that I’m hoping to premiere a song from when the time comes, and I think “Schizophrenic” is a pretty good indicator of why I’d want to do such a thing. They of course will also play Keep it Low, along with Philly’s Ecstatic Vision (new album? they’re due) and Munich’s own Instrument. It’s a solid bill, and no doubt there are even more announcements to follow. I’ll do my best to keep up, if only for my own edification.

Kaboom:

keep it low 2019 poster

Truckfighters confirmed for Keep It Low Festival 2019!

Yes Keepers, you read it right!

Truckfighters’ hiatus is over and they will soon hit the stage again!! They played our very first edition of Keep It Low Festival in 2013, and we are thrilled to have them back in Munich this year to play their album “Gravity X” from finish to start!

Along with them, we are proud to announce today that Pennsylvania Heavy Psych quartet Ecstatic Vision, South African Garage trio Ruff Majik & Munich-based Postrock outfit Instrument are added to our 2019 line-up as well!

There aren’t many 2-day tickets left so better be fast and get them here: www.keepitlow.de/tickets-keep-it-low

Keep it Low 2019 Adds Nebula, Steak and Braindead Wavelength to Lineup

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 13th, 2019 by JJ Koczan

keep it low 2019 banner

True, those of us who obsess over things like who’s gonna tour and when are consistently intrigued by things like fest-lineup-announcements way in advance.¬†Nebula are said to be working on a new album. Will it be out by the time the band hits the road in Europe this Fall to play¬†Keep it Low 2019 in Munich? They’ll be at a decade’s remove from their last LP, so they’re nothing if not due. Will¬†Steak have a new record out? And what of mysterious hometown outfit¬†Braindead Wavelength? Questions abound as we’re so many months away from October.¬†Keep it Low announced another band as well in this batch, so they continue to build a strong lineup as part of what will no doubt be a strong Fall fest and touring season.

If you missed the first¬†Keep it Low 2019 announcement, it was¬†Lo-Pan,¬†The Machine,¬†Desert Storm and¬†Dopelord, and I know¬†Lo-Pan have a new record coming out this year — though much to my chagrin, I haven’t heard it yet. Could¬†Europe get a¬†Lo-Pan and¬†Nebula tour? Jeepers that’d be awesome.

See? This is how I spend my time. Thinking about this stuff. That’s my day. I don’t know if I should be bragging about that or embarrassed. Maybe both?

Anyway, here’s the partial¬†Keep it Low announce:

Keepers,

It’s time for a second announcement, as we secured 4 more bands for Keep It Low Festival 2019!

Today we are excited to tell you that stoner rock legends Nebula (currently working on their long-awaited new album) will join our 7th edition in October, along with… London based fuzz rockers Steak, and Munich’s Post Grunge infused Metal band Braindead Wavelength!

Keep it Low 2019: The Machine, Lo-Pan, Desert Storm and Dopelord Added to Lineup

Posted in Whathaveyou on December 19th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

This makes me happy for two reasons. First, Keep it Low has been a regular feature of my autumnal daydreams for years now. The Munich-based, Sound of Liberation-helmed festival, aside from regularly featuring hometown heroes Colour Haze — which would be reason enough to travel — consistently puts together quality lineups with a not-overblown vibe that resonates even to my dopey ass sitting across the Atlantic. So first and foremost, I’m glad they’re doing it again. I don’t they were two weeks outside of Keep it Low 2018 this past October before they were setting the dates for Keep it Low 2019, however, so that’s not exactly news if you keep up on social media.

However. The second reason is that Lo-Pan will be there. The Columbus, Ohio, natives are releasing a new full-length in 2019 that’ll be their first since 2014’s Colossus (review here), and as it stands right now, it’s my most anticipated album of the year. I’m glad to know they’ll be returning to Europe to support it in no small part because that means the record is definitely happening. I know it’s in the can and all that, but making tour plans is a confirming sign nonetheless. One doesn’t book such travel lightly, and I don’t imagine this will be the only Fall fest they play. There are certainly a few around, as subsequent lineup announcements will show.

But any way you look at it, the news is good. So here it is:

Keep it Low 2018: Crowbar and Ananda Mida Join Lineup

Posted in Whathaveyou on July 13th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

keep it low 2018 banner

Keep it Low 2018 — AKA Keep it Low #6 — continues to add to its formidable lineup with New Orleans sludge forebears Crowbar and Italian psych-proggers Ananda Mida joining the bill. I like how even down to the lineup announcements, Keep it Low plays it a little more mellow than most other fests. It’s a Sound of Liberation product — see also Up in Smoke, the Desertfests in Berlin and Belgium, and any number of other tours and whatnots — so it’s not like they don’t know how to position it, but still, especially this year, the lineup announcements have come through more like a communique from one friend to another rather than a festival talking to its audience. How you frame these things matters. Not just as a part of branding, but as part of defining the experience of the fest itself.

To wit, as they add Crowbar and Ananda Mida — one band legendary and another band an upstart — the announcement makes the simple assumption that the person reading it knows who both bands are. It says quickly who the bands are and then moves on to plug the ticket link. This helps distinguish Keep it Low from other fests because it speaks more directly to the specific audience it’s working to capture. It’s a different way of saying “we’re fans too” than coming right out and saying it, and while I won’t take away from any other method a festival might choose to employ, it’s nonetheless an effective means of communicating that idea. And frankly, I believe it.

The update follows here, courtesy of the festival’s social media:

Keepers!

We are stoked to tell you today that New Orleans’ sludge metal veterans Crowbar join the Keep It Low Festival 2018 line-up (on Saturday) along with Italian stoner/psych collective ANANDA MIDA (on Friday)!

Our line-up now features 19 bands split over the 2 days! 2-day passes are long gone, but you can still grab day tickets right here: www.keepitlow.de/tickets-keep-it-low!

Keep it Low 2018 Adds High Fighter & The Devil and the Almighty Blues

Posted in Whathaveyou on July 3rd, 2018 by JJ Koczan

The lineup for¬†Keep it Low 2018, which already feels like a birthday present with the likes of¬†Colour Haze,¬†Acid King,¬†Elder,¬†Lowrider,¬†Wo Fat,¬†Sasquatch and¬†Child on the bill — among others — continues to get even richer. Two more bands have been newly added between German aggro sludge metallers¬†High Fighter and Norwegian heavy blues purveyors¬†The Devil and the Almighty Blues, and as distinct as the two acts’ sounds are, they each have a foothold in the capital-H ‘Heavy’ that unites them with each other and with the rest of¬†Keep it Low‘s lineup, which might be the strongest I’ve yet seen from the festival in its six incarnations. And I don’t think they’re done adding bands, either.

High Fighter recently announced a string of UK dates for August supporting their visceral 2016 Svart Records debut, Scars and Crosses (review here), while The Devil and the Almighty Blues issued their second album, II (review here), last year via Blues for the Red Sun Records. I’m not sure if either appearance at Keep it Low 2018 will be part of larger touring plans, but it certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility for either act.

Keep it Low 2018 is presented by Sound of Liberation and is set for Oct. 19 and 20. The latest announcement follows:

keep it low 2018 poster

Keepers,

As promised, here are 2 new bands confirmed for Keep It Low Festival 2018: Heavy-Blues Rockers The Devil And The Almighty Blues that we are thrilled to have back in Munich on Oct. 19th after the incredible show they played at Feierwerk in May; and the ferocious High Fighter to fuel your appetite with mean and dirty Blues, Stoner, Doom & Sludgy riffs on Oct. 20th!
