We are finally hosting shows again! On the last day of this month you can see Tiny Room acts Geri van Essen and Microplaza both celebrating their 2021 releases on a stage in Utrecht: Vechtclub XL. Also playing is SOON, who are releasing their debut album on Subroutine that week. From the timeless altfolk of Geri van Essen, to the playful indie pop of duo Microplaza, to the spacey kraut noise of SOON: this evening has it all. It’s on a Monday, so there’s nothing else to do anyway. And you are probably longing for live music as much as we are. See you there!
Microplaza will perform their new mini-album ‘We’ll Never Fit In This Poem Together’ this Saturday, 15:00, on the Tiny Room Records Facebook timeline. This semi-live quarantine video is the substitute to the live show that was originally planned in Dig It! Recordstore, Utrecht. Since meeting physically is not possible at the moment, we do what we can. So we offer this specially prepared ‘semi-live’ performance with live versions of the songs on the record, recorded remotely.
Stay at home, stay healthy. Watch and celebrate this 10-minute performance with us, and afterwards have a drink and talk in a Zoom session! After that, the remaining records (limited edition of 30 7″ records) will be for sale in the Tiny Room webshop.
Microplaza’s self-titled debut 7″ came out yesterday. Short, soft & sweet! The release show in Studio Patrick yesterday was a great success. Listen to the beautiful mini-LP on your favorite streaming service, or get one of the last copies in our Bandcamp store. Limited edition of 30 is close to sold out already.
This Saturday we’ll release a very limited edition 7″ (30 copies only) of Microplaza, a collaboration between Benjamin van Vliet (Microwolf) and Arno Breuer (pino plaza). Love these limited runs, and adore the music.
If you want to join the party: it’s also Saturday in Studio Patrick. New Tiny Roomster LOGOUT is playing too, DJ Don Derop is spinning the wheel again, and hopefully you are there drinking cheap beer and having a great time.

For the latest release by American producer/musician Todd Tobias (Massabu Evening Entertainments), we did something special. A mysterious band is credited on the sleeve of the album, Combo Qasam. This band did not exist. A couple of Lost Bear and Rogue Minor band members then decided to bring this band to life and play the songs from the album.
Todd Tobias also wrote a pamphlet, talking about a DIY Fun Movement: get away from your screens and out of prefab discos, and create your own fun. The music and the pamphlet did create a special DIY Fun vibe on the three shows Combo Qasam played, in OCCII (Amsterdam), Worm (Rotterdam) and Studio Patrick (Utrecht). On the last night (the most successful expression of DIY Fun), there was a reviewer of 3voor12/Utrecht who wrote a very thoughtful piece with some beautiful photos.

We also shot video material of the show. Get a sense of what was going on here:
