Club ALT feat. Death Hawks on Friday!

Club ALT presents:

Death Hawks

Death Hawks was born in Riihimäki 2011 as a quartet, but today they will be playing as a duo whenTeemu Markkula (vocals, guitar) and Tenho Mattila (keyboard, saxophone) take the stage.

Death Hawks was put together in the spring of 2010 to arrange and record songs by singer Teemu Markkula, but it soon metamorphosed into a real band. The bands intense live shows, with their psychedelic meanderings and in-your-face boogie, soon created an organic hype around the band. They released their debut album “Death & Decay” in February 2012 through Tampere-based GAEA records and the self-titled second album came out September 2013. In 2015 the band signed to Svart Records. The group’s third studio album, Sun Future Moon, was released on November 13th 2015.

New cider and new beer in bottle

Cluver & Jack “Everyday” Cider 4,5%

This cider is crafted with obsessive attention to detail, from the way the orchards are farmed to how the fresh-pressed juice is patiently crafted into cider. The focus is on crisp, refreshing balance and natural, fresh apple flavours. It is much dryer than high volume, commercial ciders and pairs well with food, just like a good champagne would.
Elvis Juice 6,5%
An American IPA with a bitter edge that will push your citrus tolerance to the brink and back; Elvis Juice is loaded with tart pithy grapefruit peel. This IPA has a caramel malt base, supporting a full frontal citrus overload – grapefruit peel piled on top of intense us aroma hops. Waves of crashing pine, orange and grapefruit round out this citrus infused IPA.
