Preview: Carpenter Brut + Youth Code @ TheCircus, Helsinki

Fullsteam Agency brings the genre iconic band Carpenter Brut to Helsinki. The event will take place on 28th March at The Circus venue and will rely on Youth Code as opening band.

The French single-man synthwave phenomenon Carpenter Brut will be back to Helsinki. For those who still don’t know the act, the artist combines influences from metal music, 80’s television series and film director-composer John Carpenter. It’s sonority can easily be placed side by side with acts like Perturbator and Justice.

A good overview on what the Carpenter Brut is capable of can be found in the “Trilogy” collection released back in 2015. The aforementioned collects the most interesting pieces of three EP releases. In addition to his own recordings, Carpenter Brut’s production can be found in numerous video games such as “Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number” and “The Crewin” soundtracks. On stage, its electronic sound world is complemented with a guitarist and drummer. The band is well-known for its energetic gigs,  They come to Helsinki as part of their ongoing “Leather Patrol Tour 2018” tour and we can expect no less than a strong show of synths and a coarse aesthetic show at The Circus on Wednesday, March 28th.

Have a glimpse below on what you can expect:

The industrial duo Youth Code will be opening the evening. Ryan William George and Sara Taylor are known for blending chaos with catchy dance undertones. This Los Angeles duo characterize themselves as raw, punishing and with industrious electronics built from the seeds of hardcore and early Wax Trax. Formed in 2012 they have already proven worthy in their path amongst this genre aficionados.

Have a glimpse below on what you can expect:

The evening will be complemented with the presence of Flashback Future DJs. They will be responsible for the remaining night’s music.


Schedules for the evening:

19:00 Venue opens doors
19:45 Youth Code
21:00 Carpenter Brut

Tickets can be acquired via Ticketmaster (28€) or at the venue door (29€)
