Beco 203 takes their celebration of The International Day of Rock more seriously than others: the venue will host three popular gringo bands, each accompanied by a Brazilian support band.
The group with the psychopathic name and a current representative of a heavy, feedback-thick version of shoegaze – the introspective rock style of the late '80s – A Place to Bury Strangers headlines the opening night of the festival, with the Brazilian group Single Parents warming up for the New York-based band.
English group The Whip, which specializes in ‘new rave’ – an electro indie rock style à la Klaxons – should get the Beco crowd moving on the actual Day of Rock (13 July). The Virgins, responsible for the hit ‘Rich Girls’, have already passed through big-time festivals like SXSW and Glastonbury, and will wrap up the final night.
