Kontra:Bar with live Masuda & Fun Machine & Club Dino's
This summer Masuda (rock trio) returns to the Vondelbunker at Thursday nights KontraBar with Pelvic Tilt (thrashrock) and Club Dino’s (alternative rock) on August 30, 2018. Going underground in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark: Masuda, Pelvic Tilt and Club Dino’s are three local rock bands to watch out for in 2018!
Masuda is a rock trio from Amsterdam. The band, formed in January 2017, consists of Joris Bod (vocals, guitar), Teun Eikenaar (drums) and Benny van der Plank (bass guitar). The band’s sound incorporates a wide range of rock genres, including indie, grunge, post-rock and also psychedelic rock, garage rock and surf rock. Masuda’s music is influenced by Ty Segall, Mogwai and Metz. The band is well-known for its energetic, raw and dynamic live shows.

Pelvic Tilt is an Amsterdam based thrashrock quartet founded in 2018. The four friends have been rocking together in various bands for many years now, and as Bon Scott from AC/DC once said, “It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock ‘n roll”, the top shouldn’t be too far away now… The songs they produce are mainly about primary needs: booze, guitars and women.

This rockband was formed in and named after the infamous Dino’s Afterhours Club – ‘the Nr 1 afterhours club’ – in the derelict Amsterdam Docks in 2014, with only one intention in mind: loud guitars. These handsome gentlemen’s performances are quite diverse, sometimes referred to as a ‘rollercoaster of emotions’. Some songs are dripping with melancholy and heart break where on the other end of the spectrum sometimes a lost hint of awkward joy can be discovered. They are inspired by anything and nothing at all and when creating their music they have no specific genre in mind. Their music is like spontaneous combustion. It will move you and make you want to dance. However, when one does want to lable it, alternative rock is the first thing that comes to mind, quickly followed by hints of stoner and grunge.
