In a few days Eurosonic is going to start again in Groningen and with so many bands -from all over Europe- playing in Groningen, it’s easy to overlook some of them and for that reason alone it’s great that in the day’s before it starts there are some preview shows. In Vanslag in Borger last night they showcased 7 acts from the province of Drenthe that will all play at Eurosonic-Noorderslag next week.
A very happy 2018 to you all! May it bring love, happiness, joy, fortune, great music and lots and lots of photos :)
Click any of the images for the full set and I hope to bring you many more galleries in this fresh and new year.
The church-turned-venue Vanslag once started out as well… a church. And last night we witnessed a bit of that ‘old magic’ as Ralph presented us with an evening packed with creativity, blues, rock, poetry… and a wedding!
I was cycling into the center of Assen and saw these clouds and they got to me. I don’t know why, but every time I see clouds like these, I am reminded of art. The old Dutch landscapes to be precise. There’s something like pure art in clouds…
For the expositions in the Drents Museum in Assen there is often an accompanying piece of art at the canal. A few days ago ‘The American Dream’ opened as an exposition showing American Realism art from 1945 to 2017. For this exposition the accompanying art at the canal is… the Statue of Liberty, posted on rock resembling the Hunebed rocks, linking the Statue of Liberty to Drenthe.
And here is the second belated blog on my travels to Barcelona of this year. I had just more or less unpacked my luggage from my trip in July when I booked my next ticket to Barcelona for one week in August. Just five weeks after I returned and I already headed back again, this time without my Bianchi.
This is the first of two belated post of my travels to Barcelona this year. In all the traveling and other things I forgot to post these, even though the travels were really good. In July I traveled to Barcelona not with just my regular additional luggage, but with an extra big case as well for a really interesting trip.
