Schon mal einer langweiligen PowerPoint Präsentation beigewohnt? Gibt's bei uns nicht!

Jetzt hast du die Gelegenheit: Komm vorbei und spiel bei unserer PowerPoint Karaoke mit.

Now you have the opportunity: Come by and play the PowerPoint Karaoke game with us.

Enjoy impromptu presentations with deep nonsense. And present, improvise, gesticulate yourself to get the audience's applause. Not everything has to or is going to make sense.

Déjàvu 

19 Sept 2020

So einzigartig die einzelnen Personen sind, so perfekt harmonieren sie als déjàvu. In den letzten Jahren entwickelte sich déjàvu zu einer Band, die sich nicht hinter den Schweizer Topacts verstecken muss und welche es schafft einzigartig von den Herausforderungen des Lebens zu singen; Von erwiderter wie unerwiderter Liebe, von den traurigen wie glücklichen Momenten die das Leben bringt. 

Performt werden die Songs von Betty Geissmann mit ihrer unverwechselbaren Powerstimme, sowie den Bandmitgliedern Robert Willinger (Guitar), Marcel Vogel (Bass) Markus Siegenthaler (Drums) und Philip Suter (Guitar).

déjàvu ist eine Herzenssache der fünf Musiker. Und deshalb möchten sie nur eines: Musik spielen, die die Band und das Publikum verbindet.

-------

Despite the uncertainty of the night ahead Déjàvu gave their best, and with their best the drew in a crowd of new fans and filled my heart with power and life force energy.  Thank you for your courage, determination and passion, for the work that you are doing and sharing, thank you!  You brought me back to my cause.

Hungry THIRSTday #1 

16 July 2020

We met for an introduction to Lemon’s world wide Fusion kitchen, the delicacies absolved any hints of hanger and invoked a deep sense of comfort and well being.  We certainly did explore our taste buds in good company. 

 

Here are the details of the Seven Piece Mezze that coloured our dishes:

 

- Tatziki Yogurt perfumed with Dil... 

- Saffron mascarpone potato salad...

- Lemon hummus and sesame seeds...

- Bulgur Balls with tomato sauce...

- Juicy Green Tabbouleh marinated in vegetable broth...

- Spring rolls with Feta and parsley...

- Finely Cut shepherd's vinaigrette...

​​

If eating well is really one of the first forms of self-respect, we most certainly enjoyed a healthy dose of real good self loving.

Friends, relatives and a dating couple joined Dani and Emu as pairs to face a series of surprising challenges. It was a magical search for the most astonishing dream team!

​​

--------

Questions and challenges big and small kept us all engaged and laughing throughout the evening.  Some careful thought, some playful battles and also much opportunity to giggle made for the perfect Sunday evening.

Joshua Tecumseh Shooting Star Cielo

02 July 2020

Joshua Tecumseh Shooting Star Cielo, otherwise known as Josh, turned 48 on 02 July 2020 and EVERYONE was invited to join his celebration of his Art, Exploration and LIFE at The Phrontistery - with the bonus of a ​Mini Food Workshop - We very quickly learned how to make Vietnamese Summer Rolls and did indeed fall in love with the flavour explosion of this raw Vegan delight. Josh also brought some Hawaiian treats (Pupu's) for us all to enjoy.  

​​

--------

Despite the incredible rainstorms outdoors a group of us gathered to celebrate and support Josh on his artistic endeavours, we were rewarded with the tastiest of treats - new skills - new inspiration and a surprise free flowing expression of song and music from Josh's friend Ramon.

 

Thank you to Josh for bringing this all together!! -  Josh plans to host some mono printing workshops in the upcoming weeks. Keep your eyes on the Upcoming Events page to see when the next adventure is lined up.          

CHOOSEday 

30 June 2020

This Tuesday was a super quiet evening, I was reading alone for an hour before one by one a hand full of super familiar and friendly faces came to keep me company; we talked, we laughed, we played some instruments, shared creations, stories and world views that's how we saw the night through.

Stoppel & Bart

19 June 2020

Weder Fisch no Vogel


..zwei pflegeleichte Profis aus dem Thurgau mit zwei Westerngitarren, einer Dobro und gelegentlichen Mundart-Gesangseinlagen lieben es, ein aufmerksames Publikum mit ihren nicht alltäglichen Eigenkompositionen und Interpretationen zu überraschen. «Stoppel & Bart» sind ein Gitarrenduo, welches ständig Themen, Riffs und improvisierte Soli einander hin- und herwirft, oft in rasendem Tempo, mitreissend, feurig.. ab und zu aber vertrackt und ungewöhnlich - immer aber groovig und wieder befreiend..dazwischen lernt man die Musiker kennen mit humorvollen Geschichten und ehrlichen, spassigen Erklärungen, wie der eine oder andere Song entstanden ist..oder von welchen Vorbildern sie gewisse Songs "geklaut" und zu ihren Eigenen gemacht haben.

„«Stoppel & Bart», alias Christoph Battaglia und Jürg Meili, kombinieren schnelle Gitarren- Riffs mit schillernden Rhythmen, um einen Stil zu kreieren, der sich in der Performance ihrer Songs sowohl an Flamenco-Klängen, als auch beim Jazz und Blues bedient..und irgendwie klingt ihre Musik auch öfter wie Led Zeppelin."

Sunshine, rain storms, barbecues and a birthday - the back drop to the show that Stoppel & Bart brought to the room. Finger picking good!!  Thank you to absolutely everyone that was part of the very first concert evening after the Covid shutdown.

THIRSTday. 

11 June 2020

The very first Thirstday after the COVID19 shutdown ♥  What a Thirstday that was!! 

The front room was reserved for a gathering of politically engaged strong (mostly female) minds - their mission - the creation of Posters for the BLM peaceful protest, which is scheduled on Saturday 13 June 2020.  

 

Meanwhile, the Grotto was mostly occupied by a surprise Birthday Party group, who made their own Photo booth and birthday buffet(including a home made Polish birthday cake)in celebration of Janka's 18th birthday. 

 

To add to the dynamics of the evening, Roger (Der Schwärmer) offered a spontaneous kitchen concert.

 

There were so many different activities happening at the same time but the whole space, including the front of the shop, remained at everyone's disposal.  The cake was shared outside of the birthday group, everyone was invited to make a poster, or to enjoy Roger's show.

 

It was truly a lovely night "out" but "in" at The Phrontistery. 

Thank you for bringing your gathering along to last night's reality -  it is one that I shall treasure for a long time.

After a loooooong Covid19 sleep The Phrontistery opened up it's door once again. ♥

The front room and large table were reserved for a Warhammer Group, the back spaces and the Grotto remained at everyone's disposal.  It was so nice to see people meeting and greeting each other at the space again, bringing their own instruments, children, songs, ideas and friends along.

 

A lovely night out but in.

2A1N - Johnny Campbell and Mäkkelä 

20 February 2020

2A1N - Two Acts One Night 

Johnny Campbell

A fast, ruthless, uncompromising sound which lends its influences from far and wide. Johnny is also a humorous storyteller and recalls stories of touring from twenty countries and counting where he's plied his trade. Embracing traditional music from Europe and sometimes frantic Bluegrass style picking, Johnny performs mostly self penned inspiring songs of protest, migration and debauchery.

''One of folk’s brightest rising stars'' Bright Young Folk

''Johnny's got the personality to compliment the courage of his convictions'' The Living Tradition

---------

 

Mäkkelä

Songwriter/performer Mäkkelä and his multiple manifestations. Folk's Worst Nightmare Collective, Mäkkelä & The Holycopters, The Goho Hobos, The Très Biens, Church Of The Blue Nun and all other collaborations

---------

An alternative reality was on offer at The Phrontistery for all those who wanted to be out but away from the BIG BANGS and BOOMs of Fasnacht.  Thank you to Fabio and Iñigo who enthusiastically hosted the evening, making it possible for the guests and the musicians to share a charming evening in the confines of The Phrontistery.

SCARPOLISH 

19 February 2020

Berlin-based Scar Polish, moniker to British-born Robin Fisher, is the final product of a transition phase. Taking an indie rock upbringing and switching things up with the inclusion of deranged electronics, Scar Polish takes a new musical leap into dream psychedelia, gritty sampling and ethereal soundscapes, yet keeping it playful, personal, lo-fi to its fullest and, most importantly, doing DIY justice.

 

"The psychedelic era turned upside down, driving through blips and bloops, and dragged experimental fits. So is Robin Fisher's project, or Scar Polish to the intimate. Fill your glass, get your favourite psychotropic, and have a good trip." - The Blog That Celebrates Itself

---------

How lucky we are to have been able to experience this creative being live in action.  He experienced quite the journey on his way to The Phrontistery, which added an intense touch of gratitude to the realities lived. 

 

Thank you Robin for braving the terrain to reach us and for your explosive creative expressions! BIG THANK YOU to each of the guests who came along to share the evening!  You filled the space and my heart with your active participation in co-creating this super evening!!!

Things to bring with you for the evening:

1. Enthusiasm, curiosity and willingness to paint the masterpiece you always wanted.

2. A4-sized printout of a picture of your choice. This will be used as the base for the painting you will create at this ArtBite event. A digital photo reference might be printed in the phrontistery as well.

3. An appetite for Bite-sized snacks that will be made available for you on this journey of artistic discovery through in-between food tasting with a raclette machine for bite sized Pizzas.

ABOUT PHILIPP

Philipp hass been working as a freelancing artist for a decade now and has organised and directed several humanitarian mural painting projects in international children's aid organisations in addition to classical landscape and portrait painting. He is also engaged in illustrating children's books and spiritual board game designs.

 

Fine Art as well as Street Art belong to Philipp's deepest passions. Combining them with an educational and mediating value has led him to his independence. He loves nothing more than to let people immerse themselves in this incredibly exciting creative culture, not only to show them the meditative healing that lies in art and painting but also to teach people and let them be part of a new learning process. "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. All you need for it are a few tools, a little instruction and a vision in your mind."

Mokoš

07 February 2020

D.

Das Piratinnen-Folk Duo Mokoš nimmt dich mit auf eine Reise in tiefe Gewässer.


Sie erzählen Geschichten aus dem Leben – z.B. von Piraten, die entdecken dass sie die Welt mit Kunst verändern können, von einer Elefantin, die in einem Apfelbaum fest steckt und sich nach Gemeinschaft sehnt und von einer Katze, die ihren eigenen Weg geht und allen Widerständen trotzt.

Mokoš ist die Wunderwelt von Laura Scammacca, die mit ihrer unverwechselbaren Stimme und ihrem imposanten Auftritt Augen zum Austrocknen bringt weil man vor lauter Staunen das Blinzeln vergisst. Und von Mirjam Gosteli, die mit ihren Trommeln den obligaten Sturm über das Piratenschiff fegen lässt und mit dem Akkordeon süsse Datteln in die Luft wirft.

Seit 2019 sind sie zusammen auf ihrer mokošken Reise, die unter dem Motto: “Wir machen was wir wollen” steht.


Was z.B. bedeutet, dass sie auch mal in Gummistiefel und Bademantel auf der Bühne stehen, beim Strassenmusik machen auf dem Boden liegen weil die Menschen von unten lustiger aussehen und sie ab und zu brandneue Songs ins Set schmuggeln, die sie während dem Konzert zum ersten Mal zusammen spielen. Mit der vollen Überzeugung:
“Lieber Apfelmus als Perfektionismus!”

-------

All I can say is...one show is not enough - if you ever have the chance to see this duo play, watch TAKE IT.

LILY

01 February 2020

Lily stellt sich der Herausforderung der Improvisation.


Nach Lust und Laune verwandelt sie Stücke in Rockhymnen oder verliert sich in minimalistischer Geräuschemalerei. Dabei summt sie eingängige Melodien und landet auch ab und zu im Kitsch. Kaum denkst du Lily durchschaut zu haben, verdreht sie dir mit einer neuen Spielerei den Kopf.
Lily macht was sie will...

WOLF & MOON

26 JANUARY 2020

Dream Folk duo Wolf & Moon are modern day storytelling nomads who have released debut album ‘Before It Gets Dark’ in 2019. Wolf & Moon’s music lives of the dichotomy of their voices and marries dreamy indie folk with electronic elements that invites you to slow dancing and day dreaming. They just have toured Australia, USA, England, Ireland, Germany and The Netherlands in support of the new record.

More Info

It was beautiful Sunday evening at the Phrontistery as soon as Wolf & Moon walked through the door - talented, charismatic, genuine and charming.  Delightful in every way, we do hope they will come back again!    

The Black Elephant Band

22 JANUARY 2020

It's not the first time we had The Black Elephant Band in the house, and it won't be the last. Each time we have shared a different exchange - always entertaining, always great! 

The Black Elephant Band is the one-man-project of Jan Bratenstein, singer/songwriter from Nuremberg, Germany. His music has been compared to a drunken night with Tenacious D and a young Bob Dylan. Kimya Dawson, Jonathan Richman, Andrew Jackson Jihad and The Homeless Gospel Choir are other popular comparisons. Sort of anti-folk, they say:

 

"Acoustic-Folk at its best." (blueprint magazine)

 

"Authentic and refreshing with the very rare gift of writing, playing and performing in a way that is absolutely complete within itself." (Stephanie Forryan)

 

„I like the satirical lyrics.“ (Fred Cole)

 

„Weird anti-folk with beard, guitar and harmonica. To fall in love with!“ (Arsch und Friedrich)

More Info

 

Thank you to Jan and all those who came back to visit us and to all of you  who came along for the first time, you made the evening the fun filled and energised reality that we lived!!
