Lene Lovich:


Detroit-born legendary post-punk pop singer Lene Lovich hit the top of the UK charts with her single “Lucky Number” in 1979, and was crowned the “Queen of Quirk”, influencing a generation of pop and alternative acts, from Nina Hagen to Boy George, and from Madonna to Dresden Dolls. A normally reclusive figure, Lovich turned her back on the limelight after her third album No Man’s Land was released in 1982 amid disagreements with her record company about her unwillingness to compromise her groundbreaking visual style for the then newly emergent MTV. Subsequently she has recorded only two albums in the last thirty years. Lovich’s unique vocal and visual style, along with her catchy but experimental songwriting, has exerted a huge influence over alternative pop culture and garnered her many plaudits and continued interest. She has been described as everything from “Kate Bush on acid” to “the New Wave Maria Callas”. Her hits “Lucky Number”, “Say When”, “Bird Song” and “New Toy” are still regular features in the clubs and radio of Europe, Japan, Australia and the USA. In May 2012, Lene joined forces with Subterraneans frontman Jude Rawlins for a celebration of the music of German composer Kurt Weill. During the tour they hatched an idea to form a new band to take Lene’s classic material back on the road. Jude immediately recruited bassist Lydia Fischer and drummer Morgan King in June, and keyboardist Kirsten Morrison joined in July. It was a baptism of fire for the new band, after just one low-key show at London’s much-loved 12 Bar club, their next appearance was headlining the annual Drop Dead Festival in Berlin

 Blaine L. Reininger:

Blaine L. Reininger, co-founder of the legendary post punk band, Tuxedomoon, is back on tour to promote his latest album “Ghost Festival”, a set of 14 new songs released this spring and “Wounds and Blessings”, a set of 28 new songs released last year.

These shows find Reininger in fine form, moving from keyboards to guitar for the bulk of his classic numbers, including many from his seminal 1985 album “Night Air” and a selection from his large solo discography 1984-2023, including several Tuxedomoon standbys. (Yes, he plays “No Tears”). As ever, his virtuoso violin playing is featured, on such songs as “Volo Vivace”, tracks from “Wounds and Blessings” and a collection of new extracts from his catalogue of music for film, dance, and theatre. Reininger’s voice is as it ever was, and he has achieved a maturity of expression and phrasing that has served him well.

He is joined for this tour by old friend Georgio Valentino on guitar. Georgio is  known as a solo artist and for his recent work with Crime and the City Solution.

DJ The Black Widow

The Black Widow dances her way through the dark scene since the late 80s/begin 90s. In the late 90s she organized the XXX-parties in Leuven (Waaiberg) where she was behind the turn tables, spinning her first dark tunes with some befriended dj’s. Under her dj name ‘Emma’, she became one of the resident dj’s of the XXX-parties. After a long break, she decided in the beginning of 2023 to return to the dj booth as dj ‘The Black Widow’. The name ‘The Black Widow’ was easily chosen since she already uses the name for her dark photography project. Since the end of 2023 she became resident dj at Porta Nigra.
