(info in Romanian here)CANDY AFFAIR PARTY – press release – the 21st of March, 2011
Control Club (19, Academiei St.) will host on Thursday, the 7th of April, a unique event in Romania: Candy Affair Party, whose guests of honor are the distinguished international artists – Mona Mur & En Esch. The party starter will be Dan Serbanescu’s side-project, Tanz Ohne Musik.
The music of the German duo Mona Mur & En Esch can be briefly described as “strange and scary rock’n’roll dark cabaret” to quote the British webzine Nemesis to Go. They manage to shape a provocative mix between Marlene Dietrich and Black Sabbath. Their sound tells apart through the brutal and metallic guitar riffs of En Esch (formerly KMFDM), blended with the sensual, yet forceful voice of Mona Mur. These elements, along with the theatricalism of the two artists’ show, induce a particular experience.
This cocktail of peculiar sensations is induced to the public after an experimental ingredient known by the public as Tanz Ohne Musik, completed by the minimal video projections of Vali Chincisan.
Candy Affair Party, above everything else, wishes to entice all your senses by offering you a diversity of lollipops and chocolates. Surprises don’t end here: you will receive a number at the entrance, which signs you up for the contest with prizes in CDs and T-shirts. The raffle takes place at 00:00 and the ticket can bring you one of the following prizes:
1st place: one Mona Mur & En Esch T-shirt and signed CD “120 Tage – The Fine Art of Beauty and Violence”;
2nd place: one Mona Mur & En Esch signed CD “120 Tage – The Fine Art of Beauty and Violence”;
3rd place: one Tanz Ohne Musik T-shirt, which is not for sale normally;
Next, we invite you to party along with the 2 DJanes: Ina and Grace (post-punk, synthpop, electro, indie, new wave, darkwave, ’80s etc.). Doors open at 21:00, and the concerts commence at 22:00. Tickets cost 25 lei and can be bought directly from the club, in the evening of the event.
