Revisited: PRIMORDIAL @ Hard Club, 2006/02/16

This gallery contains 45 photos.

HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD House Party, 2020/12/18

This gallery contains 90 photos.

Dedicated to everyone suffering from live music withdrawal, especially Sandrinha and Pipo. Live streams are far – waaaaaay far – from “the same thing” as live on-site’s, but it helps filling the void left by the lack of the latter. … Continue reading

MOONSPELL @ Super Bock Arena, 2020/12/17

This gallery contains 48 photos.

For Suzy and Phil. Funny how you’re so hungry for live music and then almost miss a concert next door to your granddad’s… But there’s a Portuguese saying that goes something like “those who have friends don’t die in prison”, … Continue reading

INFRAKTOR @ Hard Club, 2020/11/06

HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD @ La Riviera, 2020/02/17
