Oulu Open Decks
Free entrance + PM 2,5 €

Open Decks in 45 Special every other Thursday. Club starts at 23:00 so if you want to play, be there on time!

Now you’re allowed to reveal your musical preferences and perversions in public! Only the outer space is the limit (if that). Does grime/dubstep mix with funy house, or hardcore with ghetto tech? Does indian harmonica fill the dance floor? Or maybe you want to get a sense of loving your audience with sound waves like a true disc jockey!

Do you think clubs always play the wrong tunes and never “the good stuff”? This is your night! It is not a competition. Or if it is, everybody’s the winner here.

The evening starts at 23 o’clock when the line next to the DJ decks forms the line-up. Be there on time: turns are dealt in order and you can’t reserve your spot beforehand. Please show solidarity: you have 30 minutes to play. If that’s too short, maybe you want to organize your own club. We’ll take suggestions!

Free entrance for all! (service fee 2,5€)

NICUMO
6 / 7,5 / 8 € + PM 2,5 €

Incredibly strong vocals by Hannu Karppinen, lively, heavy rhythm section by Sami Kotila (bass) and Aki Pusa (drums), recognizable emotional guitar melodies with strong riffs by Atte Jääskelä and phenomenally rambling solos by Tapio Anttiroiko provides Nicumo a musical mixture that is worth to hear.

Nicumo’s music has its roots in melodic metal, but the style today has taken many fearless sidesteps to another genres. Due the bands home region, north is the strongest unifying element you can hear in Nicumo’s music. The strength in the band’s music is versatility, from very punchy pop-rock to more progressive and even mesmerizing vibrations and all the way back to straight death metal.

URSUS FACTORY
12 / 13,50 / 15 € + PM 2,5 €

Ursus Factory is Finland’s most important rock band.” – Teppo Vapaus, Nälkä-magazine 1/2017


Ursus Factory is a two-piece garage rock band from Helsinki, Finland. The two babyfaced guys Jussi and Allu have an unique talent to form enormous amount of energy on stage and make one hell of a show out of it.

Their songs are mostly about world-pain with a hint of snotty humor. If you ever get so see their show, prepare to be sucked into a primitive rock-ritual and find yourself up the stage screaming your lungs out along the catchy choruses. Ursus Factory is all about unrestrained self-expression – not about achieving the status to be hip or cool or something totally unnecessary.

TEMPLE BALLS + BLOCK BUSTER
7,5 / 9 / 10,5 € + PM 2,5 €

Temple Balls is a hard rock band from Oulu, Finland.

In the time-tested tradition of everyone from Aerosmith to Van Halen, it is the driving, hard hitting drum beats, the massive wall of bass, incandescently blazing fretboard wizardry and the melodic guitar licks that lay the foundation for the band’s brazen classic rock sound. What truly sets these youngsters apart from their peers is their sovereignty in things that really matter: memorable refrains, melodic hooks, heartfelt lyrics and the vocalist’s uniquely tinted yet classic singing style.

For the past couple of years Temple Balls has kept busy, both in the studio and on the stage. Opening for such bands like Queen, Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, the band has proven to be more than able to handle big stages as well. Whether it be a big festival or your local club’s stage, the band will set your friggin’ pants on fire. The first official single Hell And Feelin’ Fine was released on September 1st 2016 and got loads of airtime on Finnish Radio Rock. The debut album was recorded at Karma Sound Studios (Thailand) on May 2016, and saw the daylight on February 24th 2017.

Traded Dreams was released via Finnish record label Ranka Kustannus whose captain is the founder of Spinefarm Records – the label behind such acts like Nightwish, Children of Bodom etc. After the release in Finland the album was put out in Germany on May 5th via SoulFood Music and December 15th in Japan via Ward records. The album was produced by Tobias Lindell, who is known for his collaborations with such bands like Europe, Mustasch and H.E.A.T.

The fall of 2017 started with a sold-out tour across Finland with a big heavy metal magnet Battle Beast. The band also played in Japan for the first time and did a 5-day tour of Ukraine in late 2017. In April 2018 the guys did a two week tour across the Baltics and Eastern-Europe.

During the fall of 2018 the 5-piece hard rockers released a new single Kill The Voice from the upcoming second album Untamed, set to be released on March 8th.

Temple Balls are:
Arde Teronen – Vocals
Jimi Välikangas – Bass
Jiri Paavonaho – Guitar
Niko Vuorela – Guitar
Antti Hissa – Drums

The warm-up slot will be taken over by the hard rock group Block Buster. Band’s debut album Losing Gravity will be released on Friday 13th of September.

Block Buster has proved themself worthy after sharing stages with the likes of Bon Jovi, Gojira and Children Of Bodom.

DJ KRIDLOKK + TUUTTIMÖRKÖ
13,50 / 15 / 16,50 € + PM 2,5 €

Median älykköräppäriksi ristimän DJ Kridlokkin kolmas sooloalbumi ”Silius” julkaistaan 15. helmikuuta, ja levyjulkkarikiertue rantautuu Ouluun huhtikuussa.

Mutsi – pitkäsoiton jälkeen, pääsääntöisesti mielikuvituksen, todellisuuden ja jääkaapin pyhää kolminaisuutta neljä vuotta nuohoten, Kridlokk kysyi vuonna 2018 Siriltä ”kuka minä olen?”. Sirille kysymys osoittautui liian vaikeaksi ymmärtää joten hän/se ystävällisesti vihjaisi avun kenties löytyvän seuraavaksi tarjoamistaan aplikaatioista joihin lukeutuivat WhatsApp, MobilePay ja Kuvat.

Aikansa tekstiviestitse tutuiltaan rahaa pummien, vanhoja valokuvia älypuhelimestaan deletoiden, DJ Kridlokk päätti tehdä uuden albumin.

Kridlokkin rakkaisiin ystäviin lukeutuva Janne Aarrelampi muinoin tokaisi kaikenkiteyttävästi: ”Internetin pitäs tulla kerran viikossa painettuna paperille”. Tähän toteamaan ja kaikkeen muuhun mahdolliseen hevonpa*kaan pohjautuvat Silius – levyn teemat.

DJ Kridlokk on 80-luvulla patentoitu toimintatarkoitukseton kone, jolle viimeinen ohjelmistopäivitys on ollut saatavilla 1.1.97 ja jonka jälkeen käyttöjärjestelmän tuki on lopetettu. Silius on myyntiartikkeli jonka jokaisesta ostosta ohjautuu 0,6 euroa pyrkimykseen kohottaa DJ Kridlokkin elintasoa. Paremman elämän välttämättömiin hankintoihin kuuluvat sähköhammastahna, 4-D printteri, hologrammi, nopeammat toimitusajat Woltissa, turpakiinni-kaukosäädin ja kuulokeliitäntä takaisin iPhoneen.

Mukana Nelivitosen keikalla myös Tuuttimörkö! Viileämpi kuin Jäämeri, mustavalkoisempi kuin Buster Keaton. Räppää aiheista, joiden olemassaolosta et aikaisemmin edes tiennyt. Ne sanat. Hypnoottista ja manipuloivaa. Ja ne synat. Pala funkin syvintä olemusta Härmässä. Ja puolet yleisöstä on aivan seis, kun Tuuttis repii Nelivitosen kappaleiks.
