Two weeks after his recent check in on IDIOTEQ where he share loads of interesting thoughts on touring and DIY culture, our favorite acousticc punk rock artist Gab De La Vega hits the road again! Gab will be embarking on a short 5 gig German tour and it is my pleasure to promote this run.
After years playing punk and hardcore, Gab starts this solo project, putting The Smashrooms hardcore punk aside for a while and taking up an acoustic guitar.
Minimal and direct melodies, where the punk three-chords theory meets vaguely folk veins.
Stories of real lives, political practice, criticism and theories, some daily life glimpse and personal thoughts come along with the warm sound of the acoustic guitar, soundtrack of a travel, told with self-criticism and self-irony.
Gab De La Vega lives and encourages a vegan and straight edge lifestyle. “Our action and our choices are politics. If we want to change the world we must be the first thing to change.”
