Lots of stuff to write about...
Boutik Rock at the Botanique on 10, 11, 12 & 13 February
I was impressed by the psychedelic country folk rock from Too Much & the White Nots – excellent tunes and a very original orchestration. Full on in-yer-face metal from Liege band Set The Tone – a real rock’n’roll treat. A great stand-up comedy & solo set from Sharko frontman David Bartholomé. The charming 60’s influenced folk tunes from rising star Faustine Hollander. And a raucous performance with a few delightful twists from band of the moment Vismets.
Various Soirées Cerises events
Fabulous uncategorisable stuff with drums and strings from Illinois band Pillars & Tongues. Delicate hippy folksy ballads from Erinn. French cowboy-folk stars My Name is Nobody. Delightful pop with some wonderful musicianship from Ruacutane. And incomprehensible drivel with dull string arrangements and atrociously unimaginative songwriting from Hano-ah
MusicBrussels.com launch night 27 Febrary
An acoustic performance from My TV is Dead showcasing some of the tunes on their excellent new album. Garner on fire for their new album launch. The Diplomat showing us what rock is all about. And The Vogues with a storming performance straight out of 60’s London. And Nige Bray – the best pub singer in Brussels.
All on the way...
