During Let’s Swagger, we will look back 30+ years into Quartair’s early collaborations, screening the fashion show of SWAGGER’s collection 92/93 and hosting a quiz-concert by Mono Lisa, followed by a DJ set of Jan Sun.

Swagger’s fashion show took place in our primal times, exactly on 20 September 1992. Designers were Ann Demeulmeester, Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, Orson & Bodil, Dirk Bikkembergs, The “Duffer” of St. George. Mono Lisa was also one of the first bands to ever perform in our space, in 1991.

Dress up! Dress with a swag!

Mono Lisa quiz-concert at 21.00

Mono Lisa consists of Wim van Egmond (Guitar), Harrie Busser (Guitar), Frans Beskers (Guitar), Patrick Pruisken (Drums & Keybords), and Peter Belt (Bass). Mono Lisa was also one of the first bands to perform in our space in 1991.

Thirty-two years ago, Mono Lisa played at our project space before Quartair’s name even came to be. The band then realized that this event would be the pinnacle of their success and decided to stop right there to pursue other careers. Two years ago, with the three decades of Quartair’s anniversary approaching, they teamed up again to play their music and celebrate the big event. Then what to play was the question. While their own material would be obviously too complex, it would also be too subtle for the abominable acoustics of Quartair’s space. They decided to hand-pick a selection of almost forgotten pop songs that might work for the occasion. Because some of the songs may be barely recognizable, Mono Lisa will transform their concert into a musical quiz, where the audience actively participates in the guessing and listening game.

See you at Quartair! And dress up!
