Time Machine - Back To The USA!

Saturday, March 24, 2018 - 7:00pm

After their sold-out North-American tour in 2010, Russia's legendary rock-and-roll band the "Time Machine" is back in the USA. This iconic group is recognized as a "patriarch" of Russian rock music and achieved cult status among several generations in the former Soviet Union. While originally the band drew their inspiration from The Beatles, Mashina Vremeni has developed a unique voice through the years, often changing style, but most of the charm of their songs is in the melody and meaningful lyrics.
