General Rest in Peace (GRIP) is an alternative Rock / Indie rock band founded by two cousins, Talal and Ayoub, later joined in 2013 by Safouane and Samir. The musical universe of the group is marked by common influences: Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood, Radiohead, Muse, The Clash, Highly Suspect. Regularly in concert in Morocco, notably in Casablanca and Rabat, GRIP performed acoustically on one of the stages of Sziget Festival in 2014 in Budapest. In April 2017 the band released their full-length debut album, with a more raw Hard Rock style. The musical universe in which this first album is written is nourished by eclectic influences, from metal to pop and R & b, to stoner rock, but mostly Indie / Alternative Rock. Through the 11 tracks, GRIP manages to create a dark and romantic atmosphere, with poetic metaphors and reflections on life, death and love.

This concert, organized by the ALC-ALIF Music Club, is free and open to the general public.

The Yale Whiffenpoofs in Concert at ALC Fes

The Yale Whiffenpoofs in Concert! 
Saturday, June 24 at 9:30 PM
ALC Fes, 2 Rue Ahmed Hiba, Fes Ville Nouvelle

Every year, 14 senior Yale University men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world’s oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group. Founded in 1909, the “Whiffs” began as a senior quartet that met for weekly concerts at Mory’s Temple Bar, the famous Yale tavern. Today, the group has become one of Yale’s most celebrated traditions, with a diverse and evolving repertoire ranging from traditional Yale standards to popular songs from every decade. 

Cole Porter was one of the original members of the group, and the “Whiffs” continue to sing some of his songs, such as “Too Darn Hot” and “Night and Day.”

Each year, 14 Yale seniors take the year off from their studies to travel the world, performing this year in 22 countries on six continents. We are thrilled and honored that they are coming to give a concert at ALC-Fes!

This concert, organized by the ALC-ALIF Music Club, is free and open to the general public. The performance will be in the garden of the American Language Centre.

“We Used to Make Things are a North London 8 piece pop-group that make a grand noise. A patchwork of different people bonded through their music with spell-binding 4-part vocal harmonies, soaring melodies, brash horn sections and a satisfying respect for a good pop hook. Spearheaded by intensely smart lyrics about dissatisfaction, personal-politics, isolation and the kind of characters Mike Leigh and Harold Pinter would be proud of. The band deliver an electrifying and entertaining full live show as well as unadorned a cappella pop that has enthralled audiences of all ages. We Used to Make Things’ journey is in turn funny, poignant and also very good to dance to. They are proudly indie, and 100 per cent D.I.Y. They have played festivals including Larmer Tree, Secret Garden Party, Standon Calling, Independent Music Day and more locally at venues including the Union Chapel, St. Pancras Old Church and Ronnie Scotts.”

This concert, organized by the ALC-ALIF Music Club, is free and open to the general public.
