My Wet Calvin present, from 24th to 28th May, Mystery 106 Chamomile – Transit, a concert in motion on the upper deck of an open-top sightseeing bus, that for five days will drive through West Athens following the route of the Eleusinian Mysteries procession.
The action unfolds along the Sacred Way, from the Ancient Cemetery of Kerameikos to the Sanctuary of Demeter in Elefsina with unexpected events along the way and Alexia Sarantopoulou acting as a guide to the 35 passengers – spectators.

From the Dromokaiteio to Dafni, from the Diomedes Botanical Gardens to the port town of Skaramagas, from Kifissos to Lake Koumoundourou, from the rock group Diafana Krina to Zampetas and from the song “O Babis o Flou” to Gaddafi, between Stereo Nova and Koutsaftis’ Elefsina, between dawn and dusk, religious tourism and worship procession, the tourist bus will host an enriched version the single «Chamomile», released by the Athenian shoegaze group in 2020.

On the way back from Elefsina, the themes of the songs are again entangled with the passage areas through musical and acoustic references, in the form of a live radio broadcast.

A few words about My Wet Calvin

My Wet Calvin were founded in 2004 and became known for their inventive performances in unusual venues such as the “Parnassos” Literary Society, the rooftop of the “Broadway” cinema, often in their original production, whilst they have participated in festivals and tours in Greece, London, Vienna and Edinburgh.

In May 2020 they released the 11-minute long composition ” Chamomile”, that they performed at the Chaidari park between Iera Odos and Athinon Avenue in September 2020, in one of the few concerts that took place with an audience before the second lockdown.

My Wet Calvin’s artistic style ranges from the DIY post punk culture, as it was formed in the late 70’s, to the shoegaze and dream pop scene of the 90’s with a deep sense of a visuality with situational origins.
