former Wirtshaus zur Schießhalle, Waldeggstraße 116, Linz ///
qujOchÖ restarts its concert machine after moving from Untere Donaulände to the former Wirtshaus zur Schießhalle in Waldeggstraße (close to the train station, only about 12 minutes by tram line 3 or 4 from Hauptplatz to Untergaumberg stop). In the still raw atmosphere of the renovation, the first act to perform will be industrial gabber and new school hardcore by ASTRID GNOSIS (ES/GB), who has been seen in recent years at Hyperreality 2019 at the Sophienalpe in Vienna, at Club Transmediale Festival 2020 in Berlin or at the Unsafe+Sounds 2022 at Werk in Vienna. Afterwards, the global local support act LYNNMAYYA (SY/AT), whose fine minimal deep techno sets have been haunting the clubs in Linz for some time now, will perform.
“Astrid Gnosis is one of those rare, one-of-a-kind artists whose work leaves a lasting impression on your mind. She throws you into a deeply unsettling universe, both uncomfortably perturbing yet weirdly engrossing. Colombian/Spanish-born and London-based, Gnosis is a multi-media artist who weaves dystopian soundscapes, blunt lyricism and brutal imagery to challenge human perception. When it comes to Gnosis’ hybrid hardcore sound, there’s no sugar-coating and no pretentious nonsense, only progressive and uncompromising electronica with a socio-political tinge, designed to rip out humanity’s obliviousness to the world one beat at a time.” (Silvija Daniunaite, subbacultcha.be)
