Gaukurinn er tónleikastaður og bar í hjarta Reykjavíkurborgar.

Við höldum tónleika og viðburði í hverri viku og má nálgast dagskránna hér á vefsíðu okkar eða á Facebook síðu Gauksins. Við bjóðum upp á tónlist úr öllum áttum, oftast eru hljómsveitirnar íslenskar en stundum fáum við erlenda tónlistarmenn í heimsókn. Allar tónlistarstefnur eiga heimili á Gauknum.
Ýmis konar viðburðir eru einnig haldnir hjá okkur, t.d. afmælisveislur, uppistand, Pub quiz, fundir o.s.frv. Endilega hafðu samband við okkur ef þú ert í leit að stað fyrir þinn viðburð.

Í nýlegum breytingum voru svið og hljóðkerfi Gauksins endurnýjuð og bætt stórlega. Einnig endurbættum við útlit staðarins að mörgu leyti og bjóðum alla velkomna í heimsókn til að sjá breytingarnar! Við minnum einnig á frábært útisvæði okkar; það þjónar hlutverki reyksvæðis á tónleikakvöldum en þegar vel viðrar má tylla sér þar og njóta ljúfra veiga í sólinni.

RULES: - no notes (this is storytelling) - no costumes or props (this is not theatre) - only five minutes (with a one-minute grace period) AND - the story must be real and have happened to you. Stories often are funny and/or epic win, but we want to encourage people to consider sharing their sad, disturbing, poignant, serious, simple and/or “fail” experiences, too.

We welcome people with all types and amounts of sexual experiences. We DO NOT welcome stories involving racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or any other kind of discrimination, objectification, or fetishization. All stories must be CONSENSUAL!

NOT A SMUT SLAMMER? Don’t worry. The audience is in for a good time at SMUT SLAM! Sit back and enjoy. All we ask is: - No interrupting. - No heckling. - No necking in the front row. Doors open at 7pm, and the smut starts slamming at 8. Admission is 1200ISK/advance and 1500ISK/door, 18 and over please!

SMUT SLAM is CREATED by Cameryn Moore, an award-winning playwright/performer, sex activist and educator, and former phone sex operator. When not performing, riding the train, or actually having sex herself, Cameryn writes Sidewalk Smut: custom type-written pornography as street performance and literary art.

Estrogen tónleikar

Fram koma

Bergmál
Raven
Rebekka Sif
Árný

Bergmál - comedy band
Það eru tvær dömur sem skipa hljómsveitina Bergmál þær eru Elísa Hildur og Selma.
Þetta er eina comedy-bandið á landinu sem flytur comedy tónlist á ensku. En tónlist þeirra er frumsamin, skemmtileg og ógeðslega fyndin! Þær taka á málefnum sem þeim finnst skipta máli í daglegu lífi fólks t.d. álfakynlíf, viðrekstur, undarleg ástarsambönd og hvernig á að meðhöndla blæðingar.
Frekari upplýsingar og hljóðdæmi er að finna á heimasíðu stórsveitarinnar
www.bergmal.band
www.youtube.com

Raven
Hún Hrafnhildur Magnea er manneskjan á bak við tónlistarnafnið Raven og er hún bæði lagahöfundur og söngkona. Þessi fallega mannvera er með svo einlæga og sérstaka rödd sem smígur í gegnum eyrun eins og silki!
Þessi hæfileikaríka lífvera er að hlaupa upp á stjörnuhimininn hér á landi og verður gaman að heyra í þessari dömu!
www.youtube.com

Árný Árnadóttir
Þessi einstaka söngkona og lagasmiður mun flytja sína frumsömdu tónlist. Ef þið viljið eyrnakonfekt þá fyllir hún allar kröfur sem konfekt þarf að hafa! Rödd hennar bræðir hjörtu, krafturinn gefur gæsahúð og tilfinningaþrungin flutningur fær harðasta fólk til að bráðna og finna tilfinningar!
www.facebook.com

Rebekka Sif hin gullfallega lífvera með sína fallegu og kröftugu rödd (sem hljómar á við 30 manns) mun auðvitað stíga á stokk með sitt frumsamda efni. Þessi fallega dama er svo hæfileikarrík og var að gefa út sína fyrstu plötu Wandering! Núna er hún í Köben að læra CVT kennarann….hversu töff er það!
Hér er eitt fáranlega flott lag eftir hana Rebekku Sif, hún mun eflaust taka það ásamt fleiri góðum slögurum <3 <3

Legend // Midnight Champion > Útgáfutónleikar á Gauknum

LEGEND gaf nýverið út sína aðra breiðskífu ´Midnight Champion´ sem hefur fengið glimrandi dóma víðsvegar um heiminn.

Sveitin hefur ekki leikið sín lög á Íslandi síðan 2014 þannig að þetta er kjörið tækifæri til að upplifa einstakan viðburð sem verður ekki endurtekinn.

LEGEND er þekkt fyrir tilkomumikla tónleika sem jaðrar á við trúarlega og yfirnáttúrulega upplifun. Þetta verður veisla fyrir eyra og auga.

Nordjevel, Avslut, Nyrst & Örmagna á Gauknum

Nyrst kynnir,

Nordjevel(NO) og Avslut(SWE) spila á Íslandi.

Nordjevel from Norway is finally visiting Iceland, 2 years after their successful debut album. With a new lineup the devil in the north will unleash chaos and hell upon Reykjavik, with scorching blast beats and razor sharp riffs. There will be a couple of surprises on the setlist, perhaps some new songs from their upcoming album “Necrogenesis”??
www.facebook.com
www.metal-archives.com

Avslut depicts a deformed, decayed and lost mankind. The group has its roots in the suburbs of Stockholm, Sweden. With full force Avslut is releasing their highly awaited debut album DECEPTIS. The album will take you on a journey through your deepest and darkest desires with a perfect blend of atmospheric, fierce and groovy parts.
Avslut is a weapon, an uncompromising passage to meet your fate.
www.facebook.com
www.metal-archives.com

Nyrst pay homage to their grim and icy Scandinavian antecedents with atmospherically bleak and perilous melodies, while adding deathly growls and raw, ruinous yells. The mid-paced parts flow like congealing blood in a sub-zero clime, while an ancient barbarism springs to mind when they put the spurs to their steeds.
www.facebook.com

Örmagna deliver you a vicious sense of hopelessness, misanthropy with endless howls depicting lost cause in life.

Reykjavík Deathfest Warmup - Skinless, Munnriður, Severed

Reykjavík Deathfest proudly presents SKINLESS for a special warm-up show for the 2018 edition of the festival! Honored guests will be: Munnriður, that are reuniting for a special performance for this night!

Price: 2000kr at the door
Doors open at 20.00

SKINLESS www.facebook.com
Formed in 1992; SKINLESS alternates between high-speed salvos and pile-driving grooves that embody and amplify the hardest-hitting hallmarks of U.S. metal. Powerful vocals punch through churning guitar crunch to an untouchable new apex. SKINLESS pile-drives the standard death metal formula and rallies fans with the forward-charge of wreckage-provoking vocals, demolishing beats, and ravaging riffs.

MUNNRIÐUR myspace.com
Munnriður came together early 2003 under the name ROT, but didn´t start to play as full lineup until later that year in the autumn. Wrote 6 songs and recorded them on a demo that came out in 2004. Played many concerts that year and wrote more material but then disbandened early 2005.
In spring 2007 the band came together again to play few concerts for old time sake, and then went on hiatus.
Late 2008 the band started rehearsing, now with a new drummer, some new material emerged and recorded a 5 song EP entitled Ásdís Rán, which was only released on the internet for people to download.
The band has been on hiatus since summer 2009, but are reuniting for a special performance at this show.

SEVERED www.facebook.com
Severed is an icelandic death metal band that has been one of the leading icelandic extreme metal acts for the past decade. Currently working on new material for their upcoming album.
