Grrroningen and Dorrrdreecht

24 avr. 2012 | de

Groningen was tits. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Peter, longtime clubowner of Vera, and rock’n’roll hero as far as we’re concerned. We got the club’s appartment for two nights in a row to save exepences. That’s hospitality for ya, needless to say we felt right at home in the venue where Courtney love proposed to Kurt Cobain.

We enjoyed our day off by fattening up on steak and checking out some local talent at the popronde-semi-finals downstairs. We had a laugh, hehe.

Climbing Vera’s stage is like mounting a proud steed as a knight. We very much enjoyed our passages with De Staat here in november and had a blast again with Blood Red Shoes, who played a killer show and made us boogie to the Dandy Warhols and The Bronx with their dj set afterwards. We retired for extra drinks to the appartment with ze shoes and crashed some time later that morning.

Then came Dordrechts’ church, Bibelot, a really cool venue with an added natural spring-reverb to every guitarchord and drumpound in the big churchhall. Doesn’t work with everything, but it’s a nice big sound wich fit BRS quite well. Danny, the light-tech went in overdrive-mode and made it a night to remember. We were all welcomed by a warm bunch of Dutchmen and women who made us promise to come back as soon as possible.

After loadout we exchanged big hugs and kisses with our comrades, some LP’s and some shirts and the promise of invading Germany in a few weeks.

The best is yet to come.
