GIG: RIGA TIGER/ LA LUSID
Since 2017 and the release of their debut album Jag håller inte med om din åsikt och är beredd att döda dig för den, Gothenburg six-piece Riga Tiger have been a consistent source of sparkling guitars and chippy, chirpy indie pop that blends irreverence and everyday melancholy. Now it’s time for them to enter Big Season, with the release of their new album Om du tänker på tiden så går den, which they’re celebrating with a show at Debaser. They’re joined at this show by La Lusid, whose own dreamily sad and pretty record, La Lusid, came out last year.
Sep 13, 20:00-03:00, Debaser Strand
