February 26: Katzwijm x Tiny Room night in OCCII

On February 26, we host an awesome night full of indie rock, punk and experimental electronics in OCCII (Amsterdam). We do this with likeminded platform Katzwijm, the famous (well, in our circles, but they should be known worldwide) studio, record label, beer brewery and show organizing collective from Voorhout. Super siked and heel gezellig!

On the bill are The Johns and True Dreams, both from Brooklyn, NYC. The former will surprise us with a mix of garage folk with Caribbean influences. New album Forge is out now and it’s great. True Dreams is a feminist garage punk duo, a catchy as hell slap in the face.

From our own roster we provide post-punkers Combo Qazam, who are gearing up to the release of their debut album in May, and electronic folk hero LOGOUT, who started to sing in his native Greek language recently. We hope to see you all in Amsterdam!

5 Year Anniversary Party AFTERMOVIE

Yes, we know our big 5 Year Anniversary Party was a few months ago. But hey, we’re a super small indie label and we just didn’t find the time to edit an aftermovie. UNTIL NOW! Footage from all artists, to capture a bit of the magic from that last weekend of November 2019 and put a smile on our faces again.

See you in 5 years! Or in a few weeks, because on February 26 we host our next event in OCCII, Amsterdam: KatzwijmxTinyRoom: The Johns, True Dreams, Combo Qazam, Logout

Live video of Gunshot by Combo Qazam

Last weekend, Combo Qazam played the first show of the year, on the annual Schaalwerk (a set construction company) party. The show was almost blown off prematurely because the security dog bit drummer Arno in his leg and he had to get a tetanus test. Luckily, everything turned out fine in the end.

75 shows booked by Tiny Room in 2019!

A few years ago, we decided to focus more on live events and bookings. We started Tiny Room Booking to make sure our artists get to play throughout the Netherlands. Since then, we also hosted more shows in our hometown Utrecht, mainly in Studio Patrick and Brewpub De Kromme Haring. Sometimes with partners like Vette Analoge Shit or Minor Rogue Bookings.

We ended up booking 75 concerts in 2019. Pretty awesome. What’s even more awesome, is that all these shows were beautiful, mind-blowing, rad, special and/or great. A league of its own.

New video by The World of Dust: Yellow Fangs

In celebration of the upcoming tour in Japan (starting next week already), The World of Dust is releasing a new video and single today! The video is a combination of collages and landscape videos that Stefan Breuer made in Norway & Sweden this summer. The lyrics have been translated to Japanese, so all the new fans over there will also know what he is singing about (which is insecurity, doubts, trust, the usual dismals).

Toby Goodshank release show

We celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Toby Goodshank‘s untitled album with a re-release on LP on Tiny Room Records and Lousy Moon Records. Release show is next week, May 22, in Brewpub De Kromme Haring. Boo Hoo (DE) and Oliver Oat (NL) are the supports. Come on over for this celebration of beautiful indie music. FB event here!
 
Toby Goodshank (Brooklyn, USA) made his high-profile musical debut as a guitar player in The Moldy Peaches. He started a prolific solo career, recording and self-releasing 14 albums in a five-year span and touring Europe with artists including Jeffrey Lewis and Kimya Dawson. Goodshank’s style draws from a variety of pop, underground art and musical influences and employs many instrumental textures. Unconventional song structure, humor, innuendo and wordplay are staples of his music and artwork. He co-founded the 3MB art collective with Adam Green and Macaulay Culkin. Toby is on tour for 2 weeks in The Netherlands and Germany, and this is the first date.
