The darkness of november shall retreat now that PELMU (organization for live music) is going to rock Smökki on wednesday 25.11. in a way that, for example Iron Maiden hasn’t yet done!

The genres vary from 80s metal to more light pop/rock, so there’s something for everyone.

Come enjoy the live music with your friends! The event is also a perfect chance to get to know PELMU and it’s members better! The board of PELMU will be present and we’re glad to tell you more about how to get either your band to practise at PELMU, on the stage or join us and get into organizing these events next year!

Oikosulku 2015

Prepare for the most baffling party of the year!
Organized by Freshmen, Oikosulku does not take inspiration from other parties, but instead will remain distinctive, to the level that the theme of the party itself is an enigma. So, be prepared for anything. (especially around midnight!)

The coolest and the shyest are encouraged to wear the most mysterious mask they can get their hands on!
