Dolphin. Acoustics. Electricity

When: 1-2 of May at 20:00
Where: 16 Tons Club
Address: Presnensky Val, 6, building 1
Ticket price – 1500 rubles for each concert
Andrew Lysikov, better known by his musical alias “Dolphin”, can be considered as the voice of modern Russian poetry. Undoubtedly talented (even if not a fan of his style, you feel it at some uterine level), and mysterious, Dolphin was one of the main characters of the Russian music scene of the 90s. He had a great influence on the Russian youth of those years, and even now he still remains one of the most popular rock musicians.
On 1 and 2 of May Dolphin will play two concerts in Moscow — an acoustic one and one entitled “Electricity”. The latter one will have an extended ensemble of musicians, which will include his guitarist and co-writer Pavel Dodonov, drummer Vasily Yakovlev and saxophonist Denis Transkiy.
