Le Mini Who? 2017 was a slamming success

Oh my oh my! Le Mini Who? has always been one of our favorite days of the year. This year we hosted a crowded and great show by Moon Moon Moon (these guys keep getting better!) and then the release show of French slowcore/indiefolk outfit garciaphone (SO GOOD!). It could not have been better.

Here are some photos from last Saturday. Thank you bands, thank you Stayokay Utrecht – Centrum, thank you Le Mini Who?!

Dreameater out today

Garciaphone’s Dreameater is officially released today! Listen to this slowcore/indiefolk gem now on our Bandcamp page:

The band will come over to the Netherlands this weekend to play two shows:

MINI DUTCH TOUR
NOV 11 – Utrecht: Le Mini Who? – Tiny Room presents Garciaphone & Moon Moon Moon
NOV 12 – Hengelo: Huiskamerconcert Garciaphone

Reviews of the album seem to agree about the awesomeness of the record:
Culturopoing: “a melancholy pop classic”
Indiepoprock: “melodic perfection, a disarming and overwhelming fragility”
Proglog Afterglow: “an album without weak spots”
WoNoBlog: “extreme, melancholy beauty”
In De Ban Van: “soothing melodies”

Van Onderen festival

flyer Van Onderen

This Saturday and Sunday the biggest and most awesome 24-hour celebration of the Dutch independent underground Van Onderen takes place in Paradiso Amsterdam. We are so excited to be a part of it!

This Leo Sunrise will be playing on Sunday morning from 9.45 to 10.15 in the small room, upstairs. Sven Agaath plays a little bit earlier in the basement, from 9.00 to 9.30. And Lost Bear is doing a few acoustic songs in the hour-long fest that our grubby sister organization Shaky Maracas hosts, on Saturday from 13.00 to 14.00 (also in the basement).

In the Shaky Maracas hour, there are A LOT of great projects and bands from our friends (Lost Bear members, Bonne Aparte members and Ducktape Records people) playing. Read about them here: http://www.van-onderen.nl/shaky-maracas/. Don’t miss this!

In between these recommendations, there are more than 80 other options to see shows, and they’re all good. There is no need to highlight any of them – just go to all of them. Bring your own drugs.

Release show Inside The Dragon

05-LostBear-LostBearReleaseParty.jpgThe release show of Inside The Dragon (the new double LP by Lost Bear) in dB’s, Utrecht was a great success! An uplifting show by lo-fi all-female pop group Cora Kemperman & De Schuurmachines, quiet & gloomy ditties by The Avonden and loud and harsh anthems by Baby Galaxy. Lost Bear was focussed, energetic, absurd and dynamic. In between bands the great Johan Gijsen was spinning the CDs (how 90s can you get?). Lots of love, beer, and great people. 3voor12/Utrecht was there as well, they wrote a piece and shot some nice pictures. Read it here.
