Over the years, the Grrnd Zero collective has proven itself to be on top of independent music's latest trends, with its hundreds of concerts featuring international famous names as well as many upcoming, obscure bands. Whether it's a strange brand of folk, an epic kind of rock, the catchiest pop or the most experimental style of sounds, chances are that they all feature in Grrnd Zero's monthly program, which you can view on their website. Grrnd Zero's concerts are usually very cheap and are held in a relaxed athmosphere with no bouncers or curfew restrictions, which will sometimes mean that they end after the last metro. -
