04.06.2008 The "Tampere Mini Tour" kicked off last
week at Klubi. We had a great time playing that night and having fun
with the support act UAL, who cover Accept. That band really rocks,
check them out live if possible!
About the Mini Tour... We're altering the set list every night for
all of the three shows, so you won't see the exact same show at every
venue. The next gig is tomorrow at Henrys's
Pub which is kind of a head start to Sauna Open Air Festival starting
The third Tampere gig will be at Hellä
on Friday. That's gonna be an unofficial Sauna Open Air after party.
So, after Testament
and Children of Bodom end
their sets on the festival stage, head on to Hell for some more headbanging!
27.05.2008 Added new gigs. Tampere minitour is starting. Check it out.
26.09.2007: Added three upcoming gigs. Check out the
dates and venues.
16.05.2007 Added new setlist on GIGS
12.05.2007 It’s been ages since the last update… I’m
trying to get this updating thing more active from now on, though.
Those latest gigs we did in Helsinki and Tampere were really great,
thanks for the support!
We did tape and video tape the latest gig, Inferno
Bar Tampere, and are currently working on getting some songs out
to be released on the website.
A new gig has been added to the list. We’re doing a show in Henry’s
Pub Tampere in June. It’s an unofficial after party for this year’s
Sauna Open Air
metal festival. So, when Megadeth
is thru on the festival stage, head to Henry’s and support Alcoholica!
The crowd made one of the best Alcoholica gigs two years ago, so we’re
really looking forward to do Henry’s Pub again during the festival.
22.09.2006 Greetings, everyone! Seems we've been pretty
lazy updating the site... =)
Thanks for everyone who showed up on the past gigs during the summer!
Tampere, Oulu and Joensuu really rocked! We've updated the GIGS
department for new upcoming shows. Check it out!
With newest update we've added these Metallica.com banners on the site.
Please visit Metallica.com to see what the original band is up to...
To see what Johannes and Teemu have been doing with their main projects,
check out Sonicmind
and Steep websites.
In August Esa took a two weeks break from his main job as the FOH-engineer
to do 8 gigs in Finland with the ex-Rainbow, Alcatrazz and Michael Schenker
Group singer Graham
Also, Esa's 2,5 years on tour with Uniklubi
came to an end in late August. The last two shows took place in Oulu
and Kokkola, and yes, there was some kind of an after party... Thanks
for the whole band for the intire time on the road! =)
Right now Uniklubi is taking a break from touring to write and record
their next album. The third Uniklubi album is to be released sometime
12.04.2006 It's been a while since the last update.
Sorry 'bout that. Anyway, there are a couple of gigs coming up in the
near future, check out the GIGS
page. Meanwhile we've been busy as follows...
Teemu and Steep for starters. The band's first album "Silence Is Not
Golden" was released by Dies Irae Records in January. Keep in touch
with Steep by
visiting their website.
And a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Teemu!
The guy became a father on April 9th!
Johannes' main band Sonicmind has released their first CD single called
"Face Off". The release party took place at metal club Hellä in Tampere
on March 22nd. The band has also signed a new drummer. Check out the
latest news on Sonicmind here.
Jaan has been doing some composing work for the Theatre
Of Tampere. He's also working on a project involving two other highly
talented musicians: Antti
Kotikoski and Marco
Minnemann. The rumour is that the trio is working on an album...
Esa has been touring with Uniklubi
intensively. The band stays on the road for 11 gigs during the next
three weeks until a four-week break on May. The tour continues on June
2nd from Siilinjärvi and goes on 'til August 26th when the tour ends
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock'n'roll...
16.12.2005: FINALLY, (drum fill) we've added the Kaustinen
setlist in GIGS. Enjoy! =)
Unfortunately, Kaustinen was the last Alcoholica show until next year.
The guys are busy working with other projects for the time being:
Jaan is doing the @Penthouse cabaret starting on
11th November at Ilves Bar&Night. Find more information on the show
Teemu's main project Steep
has signed a contract with a Finnish record label Dies
Irae. The rumour has it that the forthcoming album is already recorded
and should be out early 2006... Stay tuned!
Also Johannes' main band Sonicmind
is working on new material. All the tracks have been recorded and the
EP is being mixed at Deerhouse
Studio by Jari Latomaa.
Esa is busy touring with Uniklubi
as usual. The band's next release "Kehä" hits the stores on 2nd November.
The tour has already started and the next gig takes place at Tavastia
Club in Helsinki on 9th November. See the tour dates here.
