One of my favorite facets of Unsound has been their hangover curing “Morning Glory” programing, here rebranded as GORNING MLORY (because DADA). So Day 3 began a little after 11am with a concert from the duo OPLA. I arrived closer to 11:30, tossed my half finished American coffee in the trash outside only to realize I probably could have brought it in. (I saw more than a few folks with teas, sort of fits the “early” morning vibes.) I guess this place is a school or something? I don’t know any Polish, but I’d speculate it’s some kind of medical college? Nephrology, Surgery, etc. The hall is full in any case, so full I can barely squeeze onto the mezzanine to get a quick glance below. The staircases down into the rows are so steep they’re practically ladders.
OPLA is a duo consisting of Hubert Zemler and Piotr Bukowski, drummer and guitarist, respectively. Their music is said to reinterpret traditional Polish dances, such as the oberek, rooting their futuristic music in rural Polish culture and history.
