Popquiz Marathon

Are you a music nerd that annoys its friends with “interesting” facts about almost every important band or artist on this planet? Invite your friends to participate in the big popquiz marathon and prove for once and for all that you are indeed the one with the most extensive knowledge of music. Also a good way to enjoy some music and beers, hopping from bar to bar across Rotterdam.

Fri 08 May

Splendid

The Hague-based surfpop and ska group Splendid is here to bring up the heat. Wherever Splendid strands, a massive party breaks out. The band does it well when laying on the grass with a beer in your hand at your local festival, but it is more fun when standing amid the crowd and jumping around on their groovy beats. The perfect show to ignite the summer-feeling.

Thu 07 May

And So I Watch You From Afar

And So I Watch You From Afar, shortly ASIWYFA, will blow Rotown away with a mixture of post-rock, futuristic indierock, neoclassical sounds, minimalism and what not. With their long songs, these Irish men take their audiences on a journey of which it is hard to snap out of. The new album will be released soon and the first single only made good promises.

Sun 03 May

Michael Prins

Though his recent fame since the triumph at “The Best Singer-Songwriter” of two years may make him look like a new kid on the block, Michael Prins sounds more like a veteran, a master of his craft. This melancholic singer clearly does it with lots of passion. We are long waiting for his upcoming album, which will be translated to a astonishing live set at Rotown.

Fri 01 May

Sam Amidon

With a guitar in his hand, 33-year old Sam Amidon is a brilliant storyteller. This son of Peter and Mary Alice Amidon mixes different genres to compose songs that come close to the sound of Andrew Bird and Owen Pallett. The small stage of light vessel 11 is a perfect place to feel the intimacy of Amidon’s songs.
