In September, after a summer filled with festivals, we are going back to regular concerts as part of Different Sounds Zone. We’ve got two bands lined up – the Zdrój duo from Wrocław and USO 9001 from Tri-City. Both groups bring a mix of improvisation, noise, jazz, and punk rock. It’s gonna be loud, wild, and totally danceable. See you there!
ZDRÓJ is a Polish/Dutch duo that’s all about improvisation! They’ve got Jakub Zasada on guitar and Sebastian Jaansen on percussion, and they’re from Wrocław. The band is an integral part of the ever-evolving collective of musicians at the Culture Reanimation Studio (CRK) in Wrocław. This vibrant community includes notable names like Kurws, Ukryte Zalety Systemu, Przepych, Atol Atol Atol, and Barłóg.
Last summer was a big moment for ZDRÓJ as they released their debut album through Fonoradar Records (LP) and Syf Records (MC). Their style can be described as instrumental free punk mixed with kautrock and noise. They’re here to show us that free improvisation, which they perform with a free-spirited, mischievous disposition, is more than a specific genre – it’s a whole concept!

USO 9001 is a trio that features Jan Pieniążek on drums, Jan Gałosz on guitar, and Miłosz Pieczonka on saxophone. Their name is both an abbreviation of Unidentified Sonoristic Object and a playful twist on the European quality standard ISO 9001. USO 9001 brings a uniqe blend of off-jazz, hip-hop, dense beats on drums, guitar songs, and punk rock. They’ve got a little bit of everything to keep you grooving!
