Allready working hard for our show at MysteriA Fantasy-Fair 2019. We have to play songs like Steampunk, Here come the Elves and Blow a Kiss. So, time to adapt them to our style and sound of 2019 (some songs are more then 10 years old. In my opinion, we only got better, so let's update these songs !). But first next week 19/1, we play at B52 music club. Looking so much forward to this !!!

2018 has been good to us. We wish you all happy holidays and hope to see you again next year !

Na jaren met plezier gespeeld te hebben in de huidige oefenruimte, heeft de lekkage het toch van ons gewonnen en zijn we op zoek naar een andere oefenruimte. Heb jij nog een lege kamer of deel van een hal, geen directe buren (denk aan geluidsoverlast), regio Dordrecht en vertrouw je ons een sleutel toe ? Dan zijn we op zoek naar jou ! pm ons, please :-)

Next gig !

Bedankt iedereen die gisterenavond die naar 32 Ohm en ons kwam kijken. Ook Willem Twee poppodium bedankt, we komen graag nog eens terug ! (foto's gemaakt door 32 Ohm)
