“Melancholie”, originally by german sensation Die Bambis, was a huge success in our country by Peppino Di Capri back in 1965, that great that he even sang it in Greek. The lyrics, “Melancholy of September…”, accurately capture the Greek spirit, after the end of summer and vacations. The start of school, university exams, a new beginning in some other city or maybe another country will carry the marks of summer with them. Like the humidity that brings a forgotten, weathered greek tourism poster from the 70s at a travel agency. The classic song has never been covered by any alternative band, and this is a huge challenge for My Wet Calvin. The sad vocals of the Athenian duo combined with 80s synths make it sound like an electric, autumn rain.

23—9—2023 • PLYFA, Athens
In September 2023, the musical constellations, the distant stars, the meteors, the pulsars, the black holes, and the zodiac circles that make up the sonic universe, where the generations of MySpace, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and other lovers of social isolation have been wandering for the last 20 years, gather in the same space for a two-day, two-stage festival. The festival explores the sonic and artistic identity of a significant part of the past, present, and future of the local scene.
Velvet Gardens 2023
After successfully embarking for 6 consecutive rides with the double-decker bus to Eleusis, My Wet Calvin will play a regional yet important summer gig presenting their new greek lyrics repertoire.
15—7—2023 • Velvet Gardens Fest • Argolida
Quite a few years after the Velvet Rooms and the Velvet Bus, MWC join The Callas, PapithedogTV & Lou on an all-day event at the legendary Ionas Bros estate at Thermisia, close to Ermioni, Argolida. Set up your tent inder the olive trees and be prepared for a group exhibition, screenings and DJ sets.
24, 25, 26, 27, 28—5—2023 • Athens → Elevsis
My Wet Calvin are presenting a concert-guided tour on the upper deck of an open-top sightseeing bus that will trace the route once taken by the procession leading to the Eleusinian Mysteries.
Meandering from the Dromokaiteio Psychiatric Hospital to that of Dafni, from the Diomedes Botanical Gardens to the port town of Skaramagas, from the River Kifissos to Lake Koumoundourou, from the rock group Diafana Krina to the bouzouki player Giorgos Zampetas, and from the song “O Babis o Flou” to Gaddafi, passengers on this sightseeing bus will go on a peculiar tour taking in “sights” and stories on the western outskirts of Athens that are often overlooked. The concert to be given on this moving bus features an expanded version of Chamomile, an anthology composition first released by the band in 2020.

Chamomile Live was one of (if not the) last concert to be held in front of real people in Greece. It happened in late September 2020, just before the endless 2nd greek lockdown hit. A few items from that gig’s merch remained, including some handmade chamomile multi-use masks and are now available to order via Inner Ear’s bandcamp page.
