Taking their name from their favorite cocktail, with a garage punk background and rock 'n' roll as their vehicle of choice, The Last Drive - the most iconic band of the English-speaking Greek alternative scene for many - are coming to Stavros Niarchos Park’s Great Lawn in September.
More than 1.000 live concerts, 8 albums, EPs and collections, 4 international tours, festivals, side projects, splits and reunions over a span of 35 years, all testify to the pedigree of a band that never misses an opportunity to break stereotypes and social conventions through its strangely familiar and subversive songs.
Better known as "the Drive Tribe," the band’s fans will have the opportunity to enjoy The Last Drive onstage at the Great Lawn, in an explosive live concert featuring their greatest hits as well as tracks from their self-titled album released in 2018.
The Last Drive concert opens with Kraak, also a garage punk band, with post-rock influences blended with elements of traditional Greek music. There’s plenty of social critique here, alongside a palpable love for rock music shared by the two acts in this unique music event.
