SISTER CHAIN & BROTHER PLAY SPOT (OFF) FESTIVAL
FREE "SPOT 2012" MIXTAPE
COMING LIVE SHOWS (DENMARK AND UK)


SISTER CHAIN & BROTHER PLAY SPOT (OFF) FESTIVAL
Sister Chain & Brother John will be playing in Aarhus, Denmark, this coming Friday May 4th. Aarhus will be packed with music fans and music biz for the annual Spot Festival. This year the official festival will be challenged/supplemented/taunted by a socalled "guerillafestival" just a 100 meters away. It's called SPOT OFF and is at B-Huset at Godsbanen (see attached map). Sister Chain & Brother John will be playing there at 20.00. Anyone with a wristband from the official Spot Festival will get in for free. Those who do not have one will only have to pay 40 DKK. Or 60 DKK, if they want to attend both days of SPOT OFF. Check out the full line-up on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/events/328294020569980

FREE "SPOT 2012" MIXTAPE
To coincide with Spot Festival we have put together a delicious mixtape for you. 20 amazing tracks that are either of Danish origin or released in Denmark. Actually only some tracks are from SOPA, because we think a lot of our friends make amazing music that should also be heard. :-) BUT as a special treat it also contains an exclusive preview of the song "Mellem To Elstole" (Between Two Electric Chairs) from A.K. Hansn's coming album "Heroicus Interuptus". Listen and/or download it all here: http://soundcloud.com/s-o-p-astonishment/spot-2012-mixtape-with
