Aside from U2 and Bell X1, they are the Irish band with the most airplay in their native country.

21 March, 21:00 – ‘burn Energy Session’: LATYRX (JAV), Tie Geresni, Jama&W

‘burn Energy Session’ presents hip-hop legends from West coast – ‘LATYRX’.

What Latyrx brings to the table is a technical difficulty level which is rare these days in hip-hop and matched only by a few groups in the genre’s entire history: Run-DMC, Jurassic 5, Blackstar, Freestyle Fellowship. Their challenging, intricate back-and-forth arrangements evoke a lyrical version of bebop, with layer upon layer of rhythmic syncopation and vocal patterning constantly pushing the envelope.

Also on stage – best of Lithuanian hip-hop – Tie Geresni and Jama&W.

Place: Art factory LOFTAS, 29 Švitrigailos street, Vilnius.
