Built to Spill: the band that softened the indie-rock, removing its abrasiveness, roughness, virulence from other times and protagonists, emphasizing the melody and emotional tone, almost dramatic, of the songs. With the Built to Spill, the revolt or introspection, sublimated in the violence of the guitars and drums, gave way to a more confessional and communicative approach. After almost 30 years, here they are with eight original albums, a strong creative independence and a secret, intense and immense cult that, tonight, will be animated by the first chord.

Built to Spill
The Oruã come from Rio de Janeiro. It is a trio formed by Lê Almeida (guitar, keyboard and voice), João Luiz (bass) and Phill Fernandes (drums) that fuses fuzz-rock with hypnagogic pop, in an extreme care with melody, voices and rhythm, and a very rare sensitivity to the possibilities of sampling. DIY music weaving songs, in a brief sequence of words, is what Oruã promise.
Shaolin Soccer is an indie rock super group, where the voice is from all musicians: Gonçalo Formiga (Cave Story), Manuel Simões (Norton), Helena Fagundes (Dirty Coal Train, Vaiapraia & As Rainhas do Baile, Clementine). The concerts unfold in rock, noise, affectionate and clumsy pop.
