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.

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.

Strákarnir mun telja í helstu smelli Coldplay og leika á als oddi. Tónleikarnir munu fara fram á Gauknum 27. Apríl og Græna hattinum 28. Apríl.
