15 - 24 July Con-Wool-E Store + summerschedule09/07/2016 [PERMALINK]
It has become a yearly tradition that Wool-E Shop & Consouling Store team up during the Gentse Feesten to become the Con-Wool-E Store. While the city drowns in debaucheries for 10 days we try to keep our heads cool selling records and coffee/tea/softdrinks (pick your poison).
From 15 till 24 July you can find us at the Consouling flagstore, Baudelostraat 13, 9000 Gent.
To celebrate this fact we release a split CD between Consouling Sounds and our freshly founded cd-label Wool-E Discs.
The split between Empusae & Klankdal will be released on 16 July
And because you can't have releases without bands playing (and vice versa) we got three days of free gigs too:
16/07 Find Hope In Darkness + Zondaar
20/07 Bitter + TraumaTerrestrial
23/07 Empusae + True Zebra
On other news:
Sunday 17 July we're off to Den Haag to sell records at the summer edition of the Grauzone Festival with ao Soft Moon.
Last week of July we're back to our normal openinghours and in August the schedule will be like this:
Closed on Monday
Tue - Fri: 11:00 to 14:00
Saturday: 12:00 to 18:00
In the evening of Saturday 13 August you can find us at JH Wommel for Ghost & Writer and True Zebra.
And on Tuesday 23 we're at the new W-Festival in Wortegem Petegem with ao Whispering Sons, Brassers and Peter Hook. 23rd & 24th the shop will be closed.

Releasedate is set for 16 July when Wool-E Shop melts with Consouling Store to become the Cons-Wool-E-Store for 10 days at the Gentse Feesten.
Before we start partying in the summer we got a new Wool-E tape coming: the second part of an ongoing series started in 2013 by Nothing But Noise the monniker of the "fathers" of Front 242: Daniel B & Dirk Bergen.
Music For Muted TV 2 sees Nothing But Noise mirror it's music against that other Daniel B-project, the legendary pre-Front 242 Prothese.
