HEUTE Fri.22.2.Konzert

Fr. 22.2.13 20:00

Wayne Lost Soul

“LOUISE DISTRAS is the new face of acoustic punk. She’s a woman with a clenched fist full of protest songs that target injustice, chauvenism and bigotry; the love child Billy Bragg and Patti Smith never had.
Nirvana inspired Wakefield-born Louise to pick up a guitar at the tender age of thirteen. Twelve years on, she uses it as a weapon to push a politicised brand of hard-hitting contemporary folk. Her first single ‘The Hand You Hold’, released earlier this year, set out to “empower young women.” It was angry, and pointed, asking the media: ‘Who are you to say/we should look this way?’ “I’m sick of the way women and young girls are reduced to stereotypes and exploited,” says Louise, 25, who is proud to be putting purpose back in pop.
Utterly of the Left – Bragg and Anne Scargill are fans – she says she is influenced “by ELO and the Bee Gees as much as the Clash.” She’s currently finishing her debut album with Steve Whale (ex of The Business), Mick Talbot (Style Council, Dexys), Jamie Oliver (UK SUBS drummer) and engineer Pat Collier.
Targets for Louise’s anger include David Cameron (“a dickhead”), the Hillsborough cover-up and “lame NME fringe bands – they can go fuck themselves.”
She has also been campaigning for the release of Russian art punk trio Pussy Riot, whose protests she compares to that of suffragette Emily Davison and even Rosa Parks. “They’re three incredibly brave women who have been jailed for simply speaking their mind and fighting for freedom,” she says. “Their struggle is our struggle.” Louise’s mission? “To destroy all apathy.” STREET SOUNDS MAGAZINE
“In all fairness, if the 60′s and 70′s could see us now – they’d all be rolling in the graves, really rolling. While music itself has reached an apex of creative possibility, ease of use and execution, for many musicians the lyrical content, meaning and message has been lacking in the mainstream. Louise Distras is one of those crusaders; if being a staunch feminist, punk enthusiast and down right acoustic wild child wasn’t enough to facilitate an interest – then her uncompromising appreciation for melody is.”

TODAY Wed. 6.Feb. 19:00 discussion and the screening of the documentary: „Beer Is Cheaper Than Therapy“

Wed. 6.Feb. 19:00

The Military Counseling Network e.V. & 
The Clearing Barrel GI-Coffeehouse

would like to invite you to the discussion and the screening of the documentary:

„Beer Is Cheaper Than Therapy“
Film director Simone de Vries will be present

The Military Counseling Network e.V.
is providing free, confidential, and accurate information on US military regulations and practices to service members, veterans, potential recruits, and their families.
We are part  a consortium of more than twenty non-governmental, non-profit organizations located in more than fifteen states in the US and in Germany.


“This documentary looks for an answer to the question of why the number of suicides among young American veterans and soldiers of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is so frighteningly high. The filmmakers traveled to Killeen, Texas, home of Fort Hood - the largest Army base in the United States where last year, 19 soldiers committed suicide. The kaleidoscopic film consists of interviews with soldiers and family members, sometimes anonymous, who are heard in voice-over while we see close-ups of soldiers in a tattoo shop, heads being shaved at a barbershop and young boys partying before deployment. Signs that read "We support our troops" and "Welcome home, heroes" stand in stark contrast to the reality described by the soldiers. Written by IDFA"

MCN e.V. would like to invite you to take a glance at another militarized town, and the work of our sister GI-Café - Under The Hood. We would also like to provide a forum for the exchange of experiences with local therapists, counselors and others who work with military personnel that struggle with a wide range of issues.
