Angel Olsen


The garden of the Sinel de Cordes Palace hosted Angel Olsen's concert on a special evening. For the first time solo in Portugal, the open-air space of the Triennale headquarters was filled with a crowd passionate about the melancholic voice of the north-american Angel Olsen. After performing in Guimarães, the singer and guitarist presented her Lisbon fans with a unique session promoted by ZDB, where she presented her latest album Burn Your Fire For No Witness, released in 2014.

Between the intimacy of the singer's vocal timbre and the intimate space of the Triennale, the concert was a meeting with the talent of Angel Olsen, on a journey that traveled her charisma, also sealed with the albuns Strange Cacti, Half Way Home, stepping into the musical compositions of Summer Bummer Get Laid Get Wasted, Your Train, My Home or Lady Of The Waterpark. 

The country and indie folk singer also presented songs like Lights Out, High and Wild or even Forgiven/Forgotten. Not to be forgotten was Angel Olsen's night, which was also the night of all those who filled the urban space, a patio that was not enough for so much admiration and contemplation. The headquarters of the Triennale received the singer who delivered a unique concert at this premiere in Lisbon, with the right to an encore
