Local and National Heroes

Ok peoples theres a HOT gig this week. On Sunday in Lokaal are two well-respected acts. Phinx is an amazing singersongwriter, and he has been already recognized on a national level - he reached the finals of the Grote Prijs van Nederland in 2005, and won the Mooie Noten competition. His influences include Cat Stevens and Stevie Wonder. He came along to one of the open mike nights in Savanna, sang gorgeous backing vocals from the audience during his good friend Jasha's set, then wowed the small crowd with an energetic and emotional performance of his own. His voice is amazing - imagine Regina Spektor and Chris Martin combined in one, and he writes both haunting ballads and honkytonk upbeat numbers. The Den Haag Songwriters Guild is extremly honoured to have him on our agenda! Come along and be blown away like I was.

The other act of the night is the renowned White Sands, a formation headed by French singersongwriter Pascal Hallibert, that has performed in Canada, America and on the Den Haag Crossing Border festival. They also reached the finals of the Grote Prijs van Nederland in both 2001 and 2004. This is Americana at its finest!

We are providing your ears with nothing less that pure quality this week, so apologize to your boss in advance for your lateness this coming Monday morning, this night is not to be missed
