Viva La Vita – Italian Night

February 20th, 2011

WTF will celebrate the night with all things Italian. Not only because we think both Thai and Italian politicians are so much alike, we also don’t know any other countries’ citizens who dislike work as much as Thais and Italians. We’re made for each other!

Come over for Dante, Opera, Grappa, Spritz, Chianti, Pizza, Vespas and Nicola!

 

FREE BAR SNACKS by La Bottega di Luca!

LIVE Soundtrack & Film :: Degurutieni+Matthieu Ha

December 17th, 2010

Thursday, 23 December, 8:00 pm

 

Bangk(zero)k Festival presents Arco Degurutieni & Mattieu Ha // Live Music Soundtrack + Film

Degurutieni is one of the main groups of the alternative scene in Osaka. Frontman Arco Degurutini is described as a magic-using-punk-poet-dandy gentleman and plays a bizarre, single-stringed bowed on 220 volts. Degurutini plays Tibetan Wild West with Yakuza sauce and Electro-pop Nippon Gadgets.

And WTF welcomes back Matthieu Ha, the notorious artist and the man behind Bangkok Zero Festival. Leader of the band, Les Istes, well-known for changing their name every month, Matthieu Ha, Belgian, of Vietnamese origin, creates an unorthodox original style with his “contro alto” voice. Singing with no lyrics, his music becomes narrative, expressive, strange and international. “His fascinating contro alto voice goes beyond the words and puts you into a moving and powerful musical fantasy…”

 

 

Part of the Bang(zero)k Festival: Live music, band, free street events, art performance. 7 days/7 venues.

Bangkok Poetry 5 Years Later

October 27th, 2010

 Thursday 4,  November

"…..five years later…."

After a five-year hiatus, Bangkok Poetry is returning with a new venue and a new generation of performers (along with some old ones.) 

Our new home will be WTF Bar and Gallery on Sukhumvit soi 51. The events will be like the ones we used to have in the About Cafe and Goethe, with an open-mike and a vague theme for each night, to be interpreted or ignored as performers see it.

The theme will be "…..five years later…." Original material only, as always.

 

Matthieu Ha: Accordion-iiiiiste

October 27th, 2010

Saturday, 13 November

 

A unique evening with alternative music  from Belgium.

Leader of the band, Les Istes, well-known for changing their name every month, Matthieu Ha, Belgian, of Vietnamese origin, creates an unorthodox original style with his “contro alto” voice. Singing with no lyrics, his music becomes narrative, expressive, strange and international.  “His fascinating contro alto voice goes beyond the words and puts you into a moving and powerful musical fantasy…”

Last performance in bangkok was a memorable gig with the Novemberistes in RAIN DOGS.

Matthieu’s itinerary speaks for itself: Bruxelles, Liege, Tournai, Mons, Lille, Paris, Marseille, Toulouse, Groningen, Berlin, Poznan, Vilnus, St Petersbourg, Moscou, Pekin, Chengdu, Canton, Dju Hai, Shangai, Nankin, Shensein, Tokyo, Kobe, Osaka, Hanoi and Bangkok. 

Matthieu is preparing an independent festival BANG(zero)k festival (December 18-25, 2010) to build an asian connection between Thais, Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Burman and Malaysian artists.

 

 

Nocturne: Photography of the Night

October 4th, 2010

OPENING PARY >> Thursday, 7 October 18:00

7 Oct – 31 Oct 2010
Tuesday – Sunday  3 pm – 10 pm 


Nocturne
 documents photographic works of photographers Pengii Tanaboon and Peduckk. Both spearhead “nightlife photography” movement which is still a novelty in Thailand. Their works differ from the usual event photography where celebrities strike a pose in front of a backdrop full of logos. Pengii and Peduckk retell and document the lives of the 20-somethings underground and semi-underground clubbers in Bangkok.

 


 

Pengii Tanaboon >
Pengii captures the glare of party spot lights like car high-beams sweeping your consciousness. Overwhelmed by hard hitting music and sensations, his photos are distorted to serve the height of madness and that certain minute before all sanity is forsaken. He represents a time of no thoughts, but just reaction to the sound and mood coursing through your system, and you are the blinding centre of it.

Peduckk >
While Pengii’s photos delve deep in raw club energy, Peduckk operates on another end of spectrum. Her photographs show the before and after–parentheses of a wild night. They are full of preparation processes and dénouement of a night out surrounded by new and old friends. Peduckk softy tells a story of expectations, quirkiness, regrets, lost confidence, and unnoticed corners. It is as if the night has been stolen away like a passing glance in a mirror.
