Friday night concert series with „Astro'n'out”
The band will play songs from their last album „Lauvas” and some old pieces, as well. The entrance is free of charge.
„Astro'n'out” is one of the best Latvian bands so far. They got recognized in 2003 with a debut song „Daļa Rīgas”. Back then, they were considered only as one-hit-wonder musicians, but other great pieces followed soon such as „Tanki”, „Gravitātei, nē”, „Tici sev”, „Spoguļoties”, „Apaļa pasaule”, etc. The band has been nominated for several awards in Latvia and abroad.
There are five band members: Mārtiņš Elerts (guitar), Juris Kalnišs (guitar), Toms Poišs (bass), Mārtiņš Miļevskis (drums) and Māra Upmane-Holšteina (vocals).
„Astro'n'out” plays melodic poprock added with a soft and peachy tembre of Māra Upmane-Holšteine.
