Hermano @ Patronaat, Haarlem

I’ve always regretted not having seen Kyuss perform on stage. I’m making up for it though, having seen Queens Of The Stone Age in summer of 07 and then last night I got to see John Garcia and his friends at Hermano Patronaat in Haarlem. Due to parking difficulties we were a bit late, so missed opening act Troy Torino and found the band had just started as we entered. After inserting the earplugs we made our way forward. (By the way, why do most people always stick to a spot near the entrance. Move, people!)

I’m crap at remembering setlists, but they played a lot of my favourite songs. And boy how they played, very tight. Really great night. Shame they didn’t have a t-shirt stand though, I would have liked to have bought one. Anyhow, check out some pictures in this set on Flickr or the video for My Boy. Lees verder Hermano



Two reasons to be happy it’s September: summer’s pretty much over and it’s time for the concert tours to come round this way. I’ve got some great shows lined-up already: Anathema and Demians in Tivoli Utrecht, Madrugada also in Tivoli Utrecht, Porcupine Tree in 013 Tilburg, Hermano in Patronaat Haarlem.

Shame all the tickets look the same these days, and don’t get me started on the e-Tickets. What kind of memento is that?

Update: unfortunately the entire Madrugada tour has been cancelled, so I’ll have to return those tickets. Some good news too: got Tickets for Haggard in Kasteel Alphen and Riverside in Paradiso Amsterdam.
