After playing at Trosvikstranda (at The Future of Trosvikstranda?), the most active Sunday band of all time comes to ØIT to play two living room concerts. Famous for their Sunday concerts, the band has chosen the unofficial slogan “We Fuck Up Your Mondays” – look forward to energetic dancing among the café tables:)
