New floor / OCCII tour

This summer OCCII will change the entire floor and walls of the concert room, to make sure they will keep supporting audiences in the years to come, and keep our walls insulated for the neighbours. This means that M.D.C.’s show on July 16th will be the last OCCII show of the season. After that, the building will be closed for renovation, and OCCII will go on tour! Some summer shows will be organised at MKZ and at ADM, watch and our Facebook page for details.

PHOTO ALBUM: Renovation 2015


Van 17 Juli tot 20 September zal de OCCII haar deuren sluiten voor een grote renovatie van de vloer. De hele bestaande vloer zal eruit moeten en er komt dan een nieuwe voor in de plaats waar weer jaren lang de voetjes “van de” kunnen.

Maar behalve bouwen en renoveren stilzitten is wel erg saai dus zullen de vrijwilligers van de OCCII in verschillende plekken in de stad (en wellicht daarbuiten) avonden programmeren als “OCCII on tour”.

Er is in de OCCII altijd hulp nodig aangezien het nagenoeg volledig draait op vrijwilligers. Dus als je wilt komen helpen bouwen of slopen, of straks in de vernieuwde OCCII wilt komen meedraaien, kijk je op:

German band mixed basic kraut rock with an eclectic world beat over a career spanning decades.
One of the most original and innovative Krautrock bands, Embryo fused traditional ethnic music with their own jazzy space rock style. Over their 40-year existence, during which Christian Burchard has been the only consistent member, the group has traveled the world, playing with hundreds of different musicians and releasing over 20 records.

“Embryo – real Krautrock based in Germany, connected worldwide.” JOHN PEEL
“Embryo ist keine Band, sondern eine Bewegung; von hier nach dort, von München nach Indien, Afrika, Türkei, Sowjetunion und immer weiter. Sie sind noch nicht fertig, kommen also noch nicht an.” TAZ

*current eviction threat*
The cultural free-haven ADM is one of the last large live/work communities of Amsterdam.
Many cultural free-havens are gone already.
It would be a complete loss for the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands and even the world if the ADM would be evicted
There is no culture without sub-culture!
Stop the speculation mafia!
Viva ADM!!
