Last might (at midnight even), just returning home after a concert I immediately started building a Swedish designer ‘rolling table’. I got some power to the thing in the morning moved some appliances and voila: my very own coffee station. I’m happy with it!
Summer is approaching fast and the festivals are anxiously awaiting the start of festival-season. However there are a few more concerts to play till then and last Friday Vanslag was the ‘shelter’ for a night for the Fugitives from Canada.
My girlfriend loves windmills and so whenever I run into one, I try to get a shot of my bike and a windmill in my rides. As it was National Windmill Day in the Netherlands last Sunday they’re all looking at their best now :)
Lots of photos of my rides in 2017 over here.
It’s been over a month since the last concert. A vacation and not many interesting concerts kept me away from the venues. However I saw that Mister and Mississippi was going to play at Vera in Groningen and as it’s been even longer since I last was at Vera, this was a great opportunity to ‘get back in the game’. Since I saw them three times in 2013, they’ve been of my radar, so this was a good time to see what they’ve been up to.
I saw the forst tulip-fields of this year on my bike-ride today… It’s finally really spring!
More photos from today’s ride and all rides of this year over here.
Last week I received a message in Whatsapp “Hey Klass, you coming to Michael McDermott this Friday afternoon?”. Normally I work on Fridays, but this particular Friday I just happened to have the day of os yeah, sure I’ll come and see Michael McDermott.
Whitney Rose played at the Spieghel this weekend to bring some of that typical American Country with a Canadian twist to Groningen.
Last night Arnold Veeman -hailing from Groningen, but with roots in Suriname too- played at Vanslag in a lovingly intimate setting.
Ralph de Jongh might very well be the hardes working bluesman of the Netherlands. Releasing two double albums last year, there’s a triple-album out now: Trilogy – ‘Dancing On a Vulcano’. And the touring schedule with solo performances, duo-performances and full band gigs is long. He performed at Vanslag with full band last Saturday to a well filled venue.
A few shots from my ride last Saturday
The album Cycling 2017 will be udated through the year with photos from my rides (and occasionally some gear-updates).
Toby Beard is on a European tour at the moment and on March 24th she and her band played in Vanslag. As it was the fifth time for her, it was reason for a little celebration.
