Most of my friends and family are aware of my love of Korean food and my latest obsession with learning how to cook from my fav chef Maangchi. I discovered her cooking videos over a year ago when I got sick of not having access to any affordable Korean restaurants in the city and needed to feed my kimichi addiction. Since then, I’ve gotten a whole group of Amsterdammers hooked on Korean cuisine by throwing dinner parties with Maangchi recipes. Next month, my ultimate gastranomic dream is turning into reality because Maangchi is flying to Amsterdam and cooking on my houseboat! She has started a food show project where she is traveling around the world to cook and I’m lucky enough to be a part of her show. I’m so excited! Stay tuned, a cooking show with me and Maangchi out soon!
Reminder that Broken Social Scene is playing at the Melkweg with Timber Timbre on May 18, 2010. They just released their new album Forgivness Rock Record and its sounds preeetttyyy nice. Tickets are only 12 euros! Doors open at 19.30, show starts at 20.30
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.
Beach house and Tune-Yards are performing tomorrow night at Paradiso. Saw Tune-Yards here back in September opening for Dirty Projectors. She was amazing. Doors open at 22.00 and it costs 10 euros. More info here.
Tune-Yards in Amsterdam at the Melkweg back in the fall.

A great song called Daniel.
Love this music video by Magic Arm.
Saw Camera Obscura at SXSW this year and loved the show.
