In 2014 I saw many concerts again. Some by band I knew and it introduced many new artists and bands to me and I loved so many of them. It’s absolutely impossible to arrange a set in a Top 10 as there were so many incredible concerts and one is simply so much different to another. But I would like, as is the custom at the end of the year, to highlight a few moments of the year.
Last Friday seemed like the start of the fall-season in concert land. Various venues in Groningen had gigs going on, Vanslag in Borger had a great act and in The highest region of the province of Groningen Richard Bolhuis of House of Cosy Cusions had an art-symbiosis mixing images and sound in ‘ Twijduuster’ in the town Kloosterburen. However I had planned on visiting my friends of wishfulmusic weeks before as they had another show in the Synagog of Groningen with two terrific acts.
I must have past the Synagog in Groningen countless of times, it’s at the entrance of a very lovely shopping-street and looks quite impressive. Still I had never actually set foot in the Synagog. Not until yesterday evening, when those fine people of wishfulmusic had been able to organize a very fine musical evening in it.
