21:00 Whipping post
This is also the first public appearance of the Whipping Post old’n’new line-up! Come to check it up.
Whipping Post plays hard-rock with slightly progressive nuances – taking influences from the 70s in particular – making the result a fascinating mixture of music from the past and present. The band has been gigging frequently in Finland for a long time already. The gigs are always tasteful combinations of rock classics and the original material from Whipping Post’s indie records, like the latest ”Cat O’ Nine Tales”.

The evening is finished by Prodigal – the solo project of singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Aleks Toppari whose pseudo-futuristic rock music includes diverse genre-blending, complex musicianship and catchy melodies. With the help of his talented live band, Prodigal’s live show is energetic, well thought out and constantly surprising as the music shifts naturally from hard rock to electronic dance music, epic ballads and everything in between.
