I arrived in Rome on Wednesday and played last night in Fanfulla, a little club in the East of Rome. It’s very hidden, in a residential street, and you’d never know it was there if you walked past.
It’s a really special place- run by a group of friends who love music. I really enjoyed playing- they were a really receptive audience. I also loved Miss True’s set (kind of lofi punk-folk) and a guy called Stefano dj-ing Turkish 70s funk afterwards!
As far as I can figure out, I think Stefano is the brains behind Selvaelettrica, who are a netlabel releasing all sorts of independent music online. I love their description:
Since 2005 we promotes the best weirdos ever, directly from the deep void of music and noise.
We don’t care about quality beats, ethics, mix, genres, style, saturation, space and time…we only care about ourselves…
THIS IS THE MUSIC WE LIKE
You can listen to a load of great music here: http://www.selvaelettrica.com/
If you ever go to Rome, check out Fanfulla. You’ll find some new friends there!
I didn’t get any photos of the night, but here are a few of my wanderings around Rome.
