Hi all,

Kusadasi guy gave me a name of a Turkish rock club in Long beach. Would anyone know of one in the centrum or a venue that has live turkish bands playing regularly. We want to do something different this year and would really appreciate the info. :razz: Also if anyone could recommend a mosquito repellent. What do the turkish use as I am allergic to them.Sorry not the turks the mosquito's(sorry guys) Do you use a natural remedy I really dont care what it is as long as it works. I have tried the strongest Dr Bens one and all the usual thing so if anyone can come up with something you will be my friend for life. What I need is something to stop me getting bitten unfortunately its too late after the fact.

Thanks a mil

You can buy mosquito repellents in pharmacies - and also you can try incense with natural parfumes.

But firstly, try to find your mosquito repellent in pharmacy.
and turkish rock/metal bands are mostly in istanbul. in kusadasi, i guess there are mostly disco/house stuff for you european tourists.

there was 3 rock festivals in istanbul in this month

rockthenations: a kind of metal fest, bands like orphaned land, amon amarth, epica, katatonia etc. (about 30 bands) perfomed and i was there : ) www.rockthenations.net

rock istanbul: was a boring fest for me and i didn't go there at all, it was on a beach in istanbul named kilyos. (http://www.rockistanbul.com/). there were mostly turkish rock bands/singers. some bands played there: Faithless, Queensrÿche, Anathema, Evergrey Starsailor, Hundred Reasons, Mono RYKODISC, Teoman, Mezarkabul etc...

rock 'n coke: it is more like a pop festival and you can find stuff about it on http://www.rockncoke.com/

also next month, here'll be another concert of a swedish band Therion in istanbul.

btw, try to check this thread: http://www.kusadasi.biz/forum/viewtopic.php?p=819

Thanks Cemeesti for the info but I will be in only Kusadasi and not Istanbul although I may go in October. I am determined to find a rock band in Kusadasi even if I have to get my friends over there to set one up .

Thanks again and if anyone out there has any more info please let me know

hehe i love blondes :) also as i see, you have already memorized some turkish words well, seems you will able to speak it in a short time.

and i appreciated you because you are very selfcriticized but, please, don't be cruel to yourself.
Ok guys... I have checked many bars wich are called rock bars in Kusadasi. But none of them play Turkish rock except a few bars which are not explored yet. Pandora was my favorite. They really know this music. It's also cheap if you compare to the bar street. 1 large bottle of Cold Efes beer is 3.500.000 (3.5 NTL) :D 2€.
There is a beach club at the long beach called PA$A. they play Turkish.
An other place in long beach is Ye$il Sofra. There are two guys who play the guitar and sing in Turkish.
There is a small bar just behind the Tansas shopping center in the Kusadasi Centrum which play Turkish rock as well.
Captain's House is also a choise for live music but they play pop mostly.

Any way... I'll keep on searching for new ones.

Hi sue
A good Mosquito repelant to try is AVON's skin so soft range, they do a dry oil spray (woodland sent) which keeps the little monsters away!! the army, marines, sas etc use this as there repelant when they go out to the jungle.
I have used it for years & it works a treat!! very cheap to!!
