We had nine Showlab events this year. All at De Vinger in Den Haag. All on a monday night and all really well attended. The last Blowout in June even had food 🙂 oh, and the beer is cheap.
Aside from the good fun times, a group of us would meet up and discuss necessary things to organise for the next months event etcetc. Designing the posters, printing and posting them; advertising the event on social media etc….
The first ‘outside of Den Haag’ gig was at SOTU festival in Amsterdam, in April. We were playing at OT301 on Overtoom and right up on the 4th floor we set up and had a very intimate gig. Was particularly enjoyable. We all said it would be great to continue this.
