Darkness 69 On August - 19 - 2014

25years Earlier today, The 69 Eyes announced they will have some special news for the evening – and here they are! We’ll give the word to the head vampire Jyrki:

“DEAREST 69 EYES LOYALISTS,

It was early September in 1989 when we first started to jam for some loud and glammy rock’n’roll in a small rehearsal cellar by the place called Kurvi in Sörnäinen in the eastern part of Helsinki. We played some covers from The Stooges, Dead Boys and Alice Cooper but also some horror flavored glammy garage rock of our own. That was a quarter of a century ago this fall.

The 69 Eyes has played rock’n’roll for 25 years. To celebrate that we will play three shows in this September. We will take it all back to where it all started for us – our biggest goal was to some day play at Tavastia Club, which eventually happened as our first bigger gig after only a couple of months playing together. And that was also the gig from we got our fist record deal immediately as well. Our first single was actually our first real demo.

Now we will play these special shows before a recording break in Lahti at Sibelius House and like mentioned in Helsinki at Tavastia Club where we will play two shows, the first one will be an all ages show, so that our teen fans will have a chance to experience that legendary venue as well. Mind you that I was there as a teen as well back in the days to see Lords of The New Church – everybody can figure out what kind of an impression that made to me…

FRIDAY SEPT 5TH – SIBELIUS HOUSE, LAHTI (all ages)
SATURDAY SEPT 6TH – TAVASTIA, HELSINKI 4-7PM (all ages)
SATURDAY SEPT 6TH – TAVASTIA, HELSINKI 8PM-

And at Tavastia we have a very special guest DJ Kurt Amacker all the way from New Orleans, USA, telling you about vampires, making of the “Borderline” video, Fangtasia Vampire Ball & signing your copies of The 69 Eyes: Helsinki Vampires comic books that he has created!

Come out, come out – wherever you are!
LET US CELEBRATE…

Jyrki 69

What else to say but – congrats!!! We’ll be there with you in spirit!
