In addition to her contribution as a musician in a number of bands and projects, Laura Naukkarinen (1980–) has been active on the Finnish underground scene publishing records and arranging concerts. In early 2005, the Chicago-based label Locust Music released Kuutarha, her first solo album under the moniker Lau Nau. Well received in publications such as The Wire, the album is an enchanting symbiosis of organic and electronic elements where structured songs intertwine with improvisation. Naukkarinen is currently working on her second solo album. At Avanto, Lau Nau is joined on stage by Tony Conrad.
Avanto Club in Kuudes linja on Friday, 17 November, 10 pm to 4 am.
