Last night Marike Jager came to Groningen with her clubtour promoting her latest album ‘Here comes the Night’. Marike has become quite the celebrity over here in the past few years presenting festivals on TV and becoming a regular guest on a daily Dutch TV show, but luckily she’s still mainly an amazing musician with her third album proving just that.

Last night I went to see Eva de Roovere in De Oosterpoort. The concert was opened by Lennaert Maes, who did a great job, great and funny songs, lots of humour and literary poetry of the highest standers (nudge nudge wink wink) got the audience well warmed up for Eva.
