Ateneum Club X We Jazz: Alder Ego

Ateneum club nights are small-scale and intimate gigs at the Ateneum Bistro. The series of club nights in the spring will be co-produced with We Jazz. This record label and festival, known as a pioneer of Finnish jazz, presents a series of top, current jazz acts from its roster of published artists.

Club nights are held from 19:00 to 21:00, with showtime at 20:00.

Tickets, €20 (normal) / €15 (students), are available from the online shop. The ticket includes admission to the exhibitions. Tickets can also be bought at the door before the show, subject to availability. When you arrive at the Ateneum, show your ticket at the ticket office or the museum shop, and you will receive a free pass to the exhibitions. Your free pass will be valid until the end of 2019.

Wed 15 May Alder Ego

Led by the drummer Joonas Leppänen, Alder Ego is a band that released its acclaimed album “II” on the We Jazz label in October 2018. Leppänen’s reflective compositions and the overall sound of the tight-knit and musically adventurous quartet are an unbeatable combination. It is no wonder, then, that the popular international radio channels BBC3 and KEXP, for example, have embraced the record and added it to their playlists.
