We interrupt this programme…

… to bring you important news. Apologies for the lack of blog post today. I never really blog much ahead of time and that has now affected my daily post schedule. However it was for a very good reason. Years & Years @Klokgebouw, Eindhoven, 18 Nov. 2015

Concert Review: The Kills (Paradiso 25 November 2011)

Yup it’s that time again. I went to see another concert, this time by The Kills. This British/ American rock duo have been described as the non-commercial version of The White Stripes, but I think that is cutting their music a bit short. Sure, the band consists of a guy and a girl and they…

Concert Review: Elbow @ Heineken Music Hall 14 Nov. 2011

Long time no blog! But yet, here I am, back with a post that I thought would need some more work and I really didn’t have the time or the energy to do so. Last week really had me knackered and so I decided this review could wait a little longer. The concert was a+mazing!…

Concert Review: Bobby Long Live @ Paradiso

As a treat to myself for all my hard word and stress related issues I decided to buy myself tickets to see another concert. The last one I saw was over a month ago, so it was about time again! I went to see Bobby Long. Bobby who? You may ask. Well, this young man…

Review: Justin Nozuka – Live @ Bitterzoet (18 July 2011)

On Monday night I went to see Justin Nozuka. I’m not a rookie when it comes to his shows: this was my third. I knew what to expect: a high energy show, with pretty songs, great musicians and sheer dedication. I went with Pauline, who had never seen him live yet. I had warned her…

Review: Concert Warpaint

On Sunday evening I went to see Warpaint live in concert. I had known their song Undertow for some time and bought their album The Fool not too long ago. When I decided to go to a few concerts again a few weeks ago and saw there were still tickets to this show, I didn’t…

My concerts of 2010

So the past year I’ve been to plenty of concerts and I thought it would be nice to post my overview here. The list doesn’t feature ONLY concerts. There is also a stray play, musical and opera to be found in there. My favorites are in bold. The ones I actually didn’t like that much…

Concert Review: Lady Gaga @ Ahoy Rotterdam (29 Nov. 2010)

Last night I went to see the concert of the year. No kidding. Lady Gaga was amazing! I left work right after class and got to the venue about 5 minutes before they opened the doors. Getting in went pretty fast and when I walked around the stage there was still plenty of space left…

Concert Review: Blitzen Trapper @ Melkweg

I decided to have one day of radio silence, after blogging for 30 days straight. Today, I’m back in full throttle. Last night, I went to see Blitzen Trapper live in concert at the Melkweg in Amsterdam. Here is my review. Blitzen Trapper is a 6 man experimental indie folk rock band from Portland, Oregon…

I Got You on Tape – Concert Review

On Monday I went to see I Got You on Tape (IGYOT). A band which clearly falls into the you-don’t-have-to-look-good-to-make-good-music category (Hot Chip is another one). I bought a ticket on a whim, simply because I loved their third album ‘Spinning for the Cause’. The band is a Danish indie band fusing rock and pop…
