O BOM O MAU E O AZEVEDO
O Bom, o Mau e o Azevedo
- (under 25, over 65 and performing arts professionals)
SynopsisAn audiovisual concert which aims to express the relationship of the image to the musical creation of this collective, strongly inspired by cinema.
The image as a departure point for musical creation, and the influence it has on the creators, whether individually or as a collective. For this effect, the band O Bom, o Mau e o Azevedo (The Good, The Bad and Azevedo) appealed to the strong imagery of the filmmaker and image maker Augusto Lado who, even though he is not a part of the collective, shares with it a great creative intimacy since, as he is also a musician, they have throughout their careers, shared musical experiences. After a few meetings and some brainstorming, a possible storyboard for this show emerges, composed of sounds, musical pieces, silences. With an experimental component, the dialogue between music and image is the great protagonist of this show.
O Bom, o Mau e o AzevedoO Bom, o Mau e o Azevedo took their first steps at the beginning of the year in 2015, when Azevedo got three friends together to play some tunes he had done for a video game which never saw the light of day. That game consisted of simply killing zombies, and its creator imagined the music as a type of “Tarantino/Western” style as background. The pieces created for that purpose wound up being the theme for the first band rehearsals, which shortly afterwards increased their original repertoire, always with this imaginary far west as a setting. It is in that arid landscape, also given over to the absurd, that O Bom, o Mau e o Azevedo finds itself, as well as the name of the band.
The premiere took place live right inside the Jardim das Virtudes in Porto, on the 18th of July, 2015, at an event called Lazy Sessions at Virtudes. Following this date, there were a series of concerts throughout several diverse stages throughout the North of the country, some highlights being the performances at Cave 45 in Porto, where the band had the pleasure of sharing the stage with the American Bob Log III and the Russians Messer Chups, and the festivals Indie Fest 2016 in Baltar, the Milhões de Festa 2017 in Barcelos, and the Salgado Fest in Porto.

Ildefonso is the Saint; and as a rule, three will always be.
Secular Januarys, seventy-two;
Two hands, Moon-filled
Until the new vengeful Sun
The triangle becomes a square
Rocks roll through the entire path
They break short of the beast’s reach
The entrails, the city and the heart!
