The astro'n'out band is embedded on the 15th anniversary of its continuance. For celebrating the anniversary, a completely different program was created, combining energy with contemporary sound from the latest album "Urda" with quotations from the 2008 album Astro Acoustic.
Just year before  in spring of 2017, the band went with the Urda album around Latvia and in summer, with a part tour program, she attended several city fests and festivals.
Now after a powerful tour, the band will meet with audiences with a diametrically opposite concept - acoustic, intimate, and humble scent, creating atmosphere using acoustics and speaking more personally.

In the concert, both songs from the last album and hearers of the hearts of the earliest listeners "Gravitātei nē", "Tici sev", "Spoguļoties" and others, some of which will be played in completely unheard of, even perhaps not initially recognized arrangements, will be heard, but others will feel like at home by the fireplace with friends, singing together your favorite pieces together.

The group started work on the sixth album and promised to show off the feelings of the coming album for the first time in the concert.

Tickets can be purchased and before concert.

Night of Legends at Padure manor

For the 7th time in October, many of the Latvian castles and manors are the night of Legends. The theme of this year's event in our manor will be the time of the collective farm or kolkhoz. In 1945, at the Padure Manor, a downing Land Test Station was invented and it existed until 1995. There were apartments for scientists and collogue employees in the cap floor and mansard. The manor was also a cultural center. In the great hall, the cinema was played and the balls took place. This Legends night is devoted to this time and the memory of their people. Let's try to regenerate that time with music, workshops and meals. The great hall will have a riveting kolhoz party. The chapel “How It Is”  will play and DJ Eddie  with a particularly coveted collective kolkhoz-era music. At Padure Manor the event of the Legends' Night will be heard and felt far beyond its fences – there will be a party.... will be the huge party "Kolhoznieku balle".
