Music listings – 3/1 til 3/7


Longital, Slovakia’s fav. indie duo, don’t believe in coincidences and live life trusting that nothing happens by chance. Magical accident, one after another, have shaped their sound and led them to their musical success. These perfect mishaps in disguise are now bringing them across the ocean for their debut US tour, and you can check ’em out in New York on March 3rd and March 9th (see event details below).


Not taking the connection between the artist and the audience for granted, Longital opens and closes entire worlds with their musical message and interaction on stage. See Dano and Shina performing “Som modre more” (I’m a blue sea) from their new album Gloria in Budapest…
