Special info:

Due to the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the corona virus that came into effect on 27th February 2020 and are ongoing, currently any kind of events are banned and concert locations ordered to close until June 8th 2020, while events with more than 1'000 attendees are not allowed to take place until 31. August 2020.

This means that all concerts during this time period cannot take place as previously planned.

We are keeping you updated about each postponed show date individually in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels. Please refer to these for the accurate status on the concert you wanted to attend.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!

Sam Himself Concert at Parterre One, Basel on TH 24.09.2020

Sam Himself

TH 24.09.2020
Parterre One, Basel

Originally from Basel, Switzerland, Sam Himself made his way to New York City in the early 2010s. Various bands, collaborations and other musical projects followed before Sam released his first solo-EP, "Songs In D", as Sam Himself in March 2017. The release marked the beginning of Sam’s ongoing creative partnership with mixer and producer Daniel Schlett (The War on Drugs; Amen Dunes; DIIV) at Strange Weather Studio in Brooklyn, as well as New York greats Josh Werner (bass – Iggy Pop; CocoRosie; Bill Laswell) and Parker Kindred (drums – Jeff Buckley; Elliott Smith; ANOHNI).

Follow-up EP "Nobody" (April 2018) raised Sam’s profile on both sides of the Atlantic with an Official Showcase at SXSW, national radio airplay and showcases, and co-signs from luminaries such as producer Danger Mouse.

Sam’s latest EP, "Slow Drugs" from May 2020, hot on the heels of its eponymous lead single and the artist’s very own take on Bruce Springsteen’s "Dancing In the Dark", earned Sam the prestigious award of "Best Talent" by the Swiss National Broadcasting Service SRF3 the following month.
