12/2 (Fri): Concert – Reykjavíkurdætur
Reykjavíkurdætur is a women’s rap collective based in Reykjavík, Iceland. These 21 fem cees are known for their daring lyrics that discuss, for instance, politics, feminism and sexual abuse. The collective resembles a “clan” where songs are performed by solo artists, duos and trios, as well as performing altogether. This makes it so that Reykjavíkurdætur’s concerts are versatile, fresh and a lot of fun. If you want to see some Icelanders spit, slam and rock out, then check out this event!

14/2 (Sun): Anti-Valentines Speed HATING with Jonathan Duffy
Single? Or just don’t like Valentine’s Day? Come and meet other likeminded individuals for a game of Speed HATING, drinks and non-romantic music.
The Speed HATING game is a parody of the popular concept Speed Dating. Its purpose is not to meet your wife or husband to be, it is to meet fun new people! You might get to know a new friend, or just someone to grab a beer with – gender or sexual orientation doesn’t matter at all, because love is not in the air. Everybody will be mixed up in one-on-one conversations and switch partners every few minutes. You will get some example topics to talk about, which are characterized by black humor. The very funny Australian comedian Jonathan Duffy will host the event.
Before and after the game we will play non-romantic music only! Be cheerful, dress in colors, have fun and meet new people. Drinks specials at the bar will help your conversation skills.
Registration from 20:00
Starts at 21:00

27/2 (Sat): Concert – Driftoff (US) with Icelandic friends
DRIFTOFF comprises members of Junius, Rosetta, City of Ships, and Superblonde, and sees these veterans eschew the atmospheric metallics of their other bands in favor of a radiant, crushing post-hardcore sound. Desperate vocals and massive tones add up to what Decibel Magazine calls “frantic, feedback-riddled post-hardcore… noisy, squalling forward momentum,” highly recommended for fans of Quicksand, Hot Water Music, Planes Mistaken For Stars, and Deftones.
The songs on their new EP, Modern Fear (Golden Antenna Records), tell tales of Driftoff’s hometown of New York City – from a prisoner sentenced to tend the city’s mass burial ground on Hart Island, to a subway busker living underground. Guitarist/vocalist Eric Jernigan has called the city “a self-contained bubble of madness… an endless well of inspiration.”
Starts at 22:00

28/2 (Sun): Jazz and Blues Night with the „Gömlu blautu“ collective
Gaukurinn is a second home to many of this city‘s thirsty jazz and blues musicians. Once in a while they get together and pay off their bar tabs with a great night of music! The name „Gömlu blautu“ basicly means „The old and thirsty“.

21/10 – GravelRoad
GravelRoad is a four-piece band from Seattle, USA. They mix the sound of the North Mississippi Hill Country Blues (including T-Model Ford, RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough) with the fuzz and power of heavy Rock ‘n’ Roll.
In 2012 the release of their widely acclaimed album was “Psychedelta” (one of the albums of the year by Classic Rock Magazine).
2013 saw the release of their single “Pedernales”, recorded in Willy Nelson’s studio, and soon after released their next album “The Bloody Scalp Of Merlin Burt”.
Their latest album “El Scuerpo” dates from 2014, and this album lets us hear GravelRoad create their sound even more diverse and heavy.
GravelRoad were chosen by legendary blues musician T-Model Ford in 2008 as his regular backing band. This adventure lasted until 2013, when T-Model Ford died at the age of 92.
Together with T-Model Ford they did 9 (inter)national tours and released 2 albums – “The Ladies Man” (2010) and “Taledragger” (2011).

In October of this year their 7 inch vinyl disc “Weavin” will be released on the Knick Knack Records label.
The big news this year is that GravelRoad from August again dives into the studio to record their next album. This CD will be produced by none other than legendary recording engineer & producer Jack Endino, who worked on seminal albums for Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney …. !!

Negură Bunget and Dynfari are ending their US tour in Iceland! They will perform with Romanian deathmetal band Grimegod and Icelandic blackmetal band Auðn.

Negură Bunget released their seventh album, Tău, this year and has performed at over a hundred concerts in Europe and America since. The band was born in 1995 as a black metal band but has been heavily inspired by romanian folk music mixed with death metal. The music, the lyrics and the image of the band is deeply connected to their roots in the mountains and forests of Transsylvania. The album Tău is the first of a trilogy dedicated to their homes.

Truthful lyrics create a contrast between the dreamy, yet imminent style of the group. Sounds from the sea and up to the clouds. Heavenly harmonies flirt with flashing beats!

SATURDAY 3/10

Film Screening: „Half Cocked“ and „Who Took Johnny“
Filmmakers Micheal Galinsky and Suki Hawley in attendance!
In the fall of 1993 Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley hatched the idea for “Half-Cocked” while on a chilly walk along the East River. Four Months Later they were shooting their half-documentary half-fiction film about the underground music scene. Financed by Matador Records, the film was shot for just over $10,000 dollars. When it was complete Matador released the soundtrack and Hawley and Galinsky took the film on tour, projecting it in rock clubs across the US and Europe. Eventually Matador put out the VHS. Rumur relased a DVD in 2006.
Starring members of Rodan, Freakwater, Crain, Nation of Ulysses, Slint, Cupid Car Club, The Make-Up, The Grifters, and many others, the film documents a specific time and place in American Underground culture. It was shot while Kurt Cobain was alive, and was being edited when he died. At the time the film “Kids” was being shot in Hawley’s bedroom as she edited in the closet. (http://rumur.com/kids-and-half-cocked/)
Hawley and Galinsky went on to make a half dozen other feature films, many of them documentaries. Their most recent collaboration with partner David Beilinson “Who Took Johnny” will screen at RIFF. They figured if they were coming to Reykjavik they might as well finally get Half-Cocked screened in Iceland.

Dulvitund, a one man project of Þórir Óskar Björnsson, is releasing his first LP. It´s a double release party as it is Hið myrka mans (record label) first release as well.
DÖPUR started out is a one man music project conceived and created by Krummi Björgvinsson dedicated to the extreme side of power electronics, post-punk, blackmetal, drone, noise and beyond. Krummi´s fiancé Linnea later joined the band on keyboards and other instruments. Since then the DÖPUR sound has developed into a more song oriented material with big hints of post-punk, coldwave and noise rock. DÖPUR just finished recording their first 7” which is due in late October.
