Beautiful fall with Louise Distras

By Mary

Jul 13, 2016 News0 Comments

Don’t be sad when the summer is over – because in fall the wonderful singer-songwriter Louise Distras will tour with a full band in Europe! Louise Distras channels her anger, hopes and fears into anthems of love and fury for yet another let down generation. Ticking both the post-punk and pop boxes with explosive lyrics and riotous sonic disposition, Distras’ live shows are “high energy face rippers that stand out like a meteor”.

Cheetah Chrome and the Knobs

By Mary

Jun 14, 2016 0 Comments

Exciting news! Cheetah Chrome, the original Dead Boys guitarist, will come to Europe for a few shows in August and then again in October 2016! Turbo Booking is happy to help. :-)

Cheetah Chrome’s explosive songwriting and raw tone influenced an entire generation of players and has been reflected in some most revered and popular bands including The Hellacopters, The Darkness, Powder Monkeys or Supersuckers.
From cutting his chops and being an architect for the US punk rock sound in Cleveland, Ohio with Rocket from The Tombs to relocating to New York City as a founding member of one of the most prolific punk rock bands of the genre, The Dead Boys.

 

In Fall 2016, Cheetah Chrome will be returning to Europe to embark on a tour across mainland Europe. With “The Knobs” Cheetah has recruited a quality cast of band mates who have aligned themselves with his style and have brought his influence to their country, Tony Leewenburgh aka “Tony Slug” (BGK, Nitwitz, The Hydromatics, Loveslug, The Spades), Theo Brouwer (Lords Of Altamont, The Nitwitz, The Hydromatics) and Ries Doms (The Kik, The Hydromatics, Powervice, The Spades).

Jenny Don’t and the Spurs Europe 2016 – Part II

By Mary

Jun 1, 2016 0 Comments

Portland’s hottest new roots-country four piece “Jenny Don’t and the Spurs” will come back to Europe after only six months, because we all had too much fun with the country experience! Featuring Jenny Don’t (Don’t, Ladies Of The Night), Kelly Halliburton (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Pierced Arrows), JT Halmfilst (Thee Headliners, Audios Amigos) and Sam Henry (Wipers, Rats, Napalm Beach, Don’t)! While the sound of the Spurs is original and draws from deep wells of personal experience, the band pays stylistic homage to the greats of the genre – Patsy Cline, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams Sr., Loretta Lynne, and all the rest of the real players from the 1940s and 50s…

The first 5 tours are over

THANK YOU, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Don’t, Jenny Don’t And The Spurs, Feral Kizzy, THE Veggers and Reddot! You are wonderful people and fantastic musicians and I love working with all of you! Come back soon, please!
In May I will be on tour in Germany, Switzerland and France with the Dead Buttons from Seoul!

Veggers und Reddot – new shows

By Mary

Feb 24, 2016 News0 Comments

Unfortunately The Veggers and Reddot had to cancel their Switzerland and Italy shows in April. Two members of the Veggers didn’t perform their military service yet and the Korean government only allows them to travel to one country.

CANCELLED:
Apr/15/16 CH – Basel, Off Bar
Apr/17/16 CH – Biel, Schrottbar
Apr/18/16 CH – Zürich, Boschbar
Apr/19/16 IT – Turin, El Paso

Luckily I found some new places where they can play – many thanks to all the local promoters!

Steakknife goes Europe

By Mary

Feb 3, 2016 News0 Comments

I’m stoked to announce that Turbo Booking now helps the terrific Steakknife (Hardcore Punk from Saarbrücken with legendary singer Lee Hollis from the Spermbirds) with bookings outside Germany!

Let Lee Hollis speak for himself: “We‘ve been doing this forever. 22 years I think. At least long enough to put an eight year distance between ‘One Eyed Bomb’ and our last record ‘Parallel Universe of the Dead’. So yeah, forever. Steakknife has always felt like ‘the right thing to do’. Even on the worst day of the shittiest tour in the middle of winter and ‘Fuck everyone in and OUTSIDE of this BUS!’ we were all in that bus because it was ‘the right thing TO DO.’ Because the music we make is the music we listen to. I wrote that about fifteen years ago and it‘s still true today.”

Upcoming tours 2016

Dec 1, 2015 0 Comments

Turbo Booking is busy as a bee. I’m preparing eight tours right now for Portland’s admirable and adorable Don’t, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. and Jenny Don’t & The Spurs, also for Feral Kizzy‘s wonderful wave/dark pop which always reminds me of the B-52’s, another tour for the very special all-girl post punk/noise pop band Punčke from Croatia and last but not least for the Veggers, Reddot and the Dead Buttons, the first Korean punk bands ever touring in Germany!

Beside the upcoming tours you can book the Subhumans, Citizen Fish, Culture Shock, Dead Buttons, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Sects Tape, 1982 and Pete Bentham & the Dinner Ladies for festivals in 2016.

New price – tour van rental

By Mary

Nov 25, 2015 0 Comments

Sorry, I have to increase the price for the tour van rental from December 1st, 2015. At the moment it’s not even possible to cover the costs for insurance, maintenance and repair from 75 € per day let alone making any profit. As it is really important for me that the vans always are in a very good condition, I have to take 80 € per day in future and see how it is going from there. There are still no extra costs for navigation device, additional drivers, fully comprehensive insurance, winter tyres, fine processing and final cleaning!

Jenny Don’t and the Spurs will tour Europe in April 2016. Jenny from Don’t, Sam from the Wipers, Kelly from Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. etc. are Portland’s hottest new roots-country trio. They bring a variety of musical styles and a formidable wealth of experience to the stage. Live, the trio concentrates on playing a set of mostly original songs, bolstered by a few choice classic covers (Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Ernest Tubb…).

Room Full of Strangers reviews

By Mary

Aug 9, 2015 News0 Comments

“Room Full of Strangers werden in der Live-Präsentation wohl ein Heidenspaß, die Band kommt im Oktober nach Deutschland, wir sehen uns in der ersten Reihe” sagt das Ox Fanzine!

rfos-ox

Und das Trashrock Mag schreibt:
“Ich bin wirklich schwer begeistert. Jedes der zehn Lieder auf “Bad Vacation” ist ein kleiner Hit, der in die Beine geht und dich tanzen lässt. ‘Bad Vacation’ ist ein wirklich klasse Album, das sich in einem Rutsch durchhören und den Finger ganz schnell zur Repeattaste wandern lässt . Im Herbst kommt die Band auf Tour nach Europa. Wer kann, sollte sich das nicht entgehen lassen. Ich bin mir sicher, live sind die eine Granate. Geile Band!”

Join the sect!

Sects Tape - Psalm

In November 2015 the sect will enlighten Europe with the radiance of the guru’s knowledges: an end to wars, diseases, sadness, and all things that hindered the greatness of humanity.

The Guru and his apostles created Sects Tape as a musical branch of the sect. The result is a mix of surf and garage rock riffs, with a punchier rhythmical section and of course the message and habits of the sect.

The Dead Class reunion

By Mary

Apr 19, 2015 News0 Comments

 

THE DEAD CLASS from Liverpool are back! We had so much fun together in the past and I’m looking forward to their next tour in Europe!

“Tomorrow morning The Dead Class will release our first single since we took a break 2 years ago. I am so happy to be back writing and recording with the lads. I mean, we toured SO much together. We used to travel everywhere in an ambulance and cook our meals and coffee roadside on a little camping stove. We lived in the van! We did all the silly things bands do whilst maintaining a strong work ethic. We met the most amazing people through the years that I know I can call my friends and still keep in touch with to this day. We rehearsed and worked our lovely arse’s off full time when we weren’t gigging too, so yes this means a lot to me to be able to play with them again and release more noise. The new material is dark, twisted and heavy so far. I think I am getting angrier in my auld age (in a positive way though). Tune in tomorrow and share it around. x” – Villy Raze
