    Bold curls, pearls, bright lipstick and flirty dresses in all colors of the rainbow! Sounds like a prop from an old movie, but actually it is recognizable traditional dress code of the funniest in our community - that of swing fans. You've probably seen these men and women at retro parties or other special events, wondering how they always manage to look so casual but always chic. The answer is in the music, and it is the language of the soul, according to Yavor and Sonya - two of the most popular swing dancers in the country, which are also part of the team Lindyhop.bg, one of the few specialist dance schools in Bulgaria. Here's what else they shared one devoid of formality, but curious afternoon conversation.

    The Offspring and their six times platinum Smash were a real event for its time so with unconcealed excitement we expect 6 July, when the band will play the entire album live as a headliner at this year's Sofia Rocks (Academic Stadium). We had only 10 minutes to speak with guitarist Kevin John Wasserman (aka Noodles) for a thing or two before the show here, but they were enough to point the important things - punk rock, beer and funny nicknames.

    Drone/doom/ambient act Nadja is a complex beast, described both as extreme and as dreamy. For the last 12 years, mainman Aidan Baker has managed to pull off some 40+ albums, compilations and collaborations, making Nadja a household name in Canadian and European underground.
    It is with gratest of joy that we welcomed the news that Nadja is to perform an exclusive gig in Sofia (Mixtape 5, March 27th) followed by a solo live of Aidan just a day later (Czech Centre, March 28th).
    Both being the perfect excuse for a short conversation with the prolific songwriter and instrumentalist Aidan Baker.
