If Kurt Cobain had never described Eugene Kelly and Frances Mckee of The Vaselines as his “favourite songwriters in the whole world”, it’s hard to say just how much exposure the Scottish duo would have ever got. It’s a good job he did then. After releasing an album of new material last year, The Vaselines are back on tour and stopping by Amsterdam.
This is a shout out to my friend Taylor Browning, she loves Joanna Newsom and tickets to her show might be enough temptation to get her to come visit me in Amsterdam. Anyways, Joanna Newsom is coming to Amsterdam on May 30th at the Melkweg. Special guest Roy Harper will also be joining her. Get your tickets here.
Of course it’s already sold out but many of my friends have found it pretty easy to scalp tickets in this city soooo maybe you can snag some tickets for MGMT and Zombie Zombie, performing at the Melkweg March 28.
If you are in search of something on the opposite end of the spectrum from Bone Thugs, then head over to the other side of Melkweg and join the Subbacultcha! anniversary party this evening. This monthly music magazine is throwing a fun event including 12 live bands and Djs till 4 am. Tickets range from 10 euros to 5 euros depending on what time you show up. More information here.
