To support or not to support?
Filed under: Live gigs | March 23rd, 2012
For starting bands it’s a great way to gain live experience, especially when it’s in front of a tough crowd. It’s also a good chance to introduce your music to a new audience. In our few years of existence we’ve done a couple of support shows which enabled us to share the stage with some awesome bands: Jaya The Cat, Che Sudaka, La Pegatina twice and Ojos de Brujo last December, which was truly an honor. Another thing these support shows brought us is the opportunity to play in some of the main live venues of our country, like Paradiso and Tivoli Oudegracht. All good reasons we think to say ‘yes’ to support shows.
Apr 14 – The Beat (UK), Gebouw-T, Bergen Op Zoom
Dating way back to 1978, they became world-famous with their mixture of ska with pop, soul, reggae & punk rock.
Apr 15 – La Troba Kung-F├║ (ESP), W2, Den Bosch
Project of Dusminguet-singer/accordion player Joan Garriga, one of the main characters of Spanish Mestizo.
Apr 22 – The Black Seeds (NZ), Melkweg, Melkweg
Reggae-funk heavyweights from New Zealand, presenting their album ‘Dust and Dirt’ in the Melkweg main hall.
Lucky for us we sort of blend all these music styles together, making it possible for us to support these bands. With that being said, will you come and support us???
