The summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean we are planning to go into hibernation mode here in Timisoara. On the contrary. The days are getting colder, shorter and darker, but that gives us the perfect motivation to spend our evening surrounded by nice people and good music. What better way to keep warm until the cold season is over than some good concerts in Timisoara?!
