Nice to have the Australian contingent representing. :wink:

So...any suggestions for a decent bar pre gig to meet up?
I'd prefer a bar where smoking is still "allowed". Though I thought there where none left in Holland ever since the ban earlier this year, I was nicely suprised last Saturday visiting a bar where smoking was no problem at all. :D
Well, what about Stones Cafe in the Red Light District. You can get stoned and drink in there. :wink:

Plenty of those but you can't get a descent drink in there. ;D

@ Hom: Sounds just fine Steve! :wink:

OK. Anybody objections? Music is a bit Euro pop but we could always take over the sound system. :innocent: :lol:

No objections here. As long as we take over the sound system, which I'm counting on. :lol:

I like euro pop - it's just a matter of enough beer :wink:

I think I will. Amsterdam, and Hamburg two days later seems cool. But Paradiso is such a great venue.

After about three years of lurking in the guise of a 'guest' I've finally got around to signing up!
Is the Paradiso pretty easy to find? Despite actually spending around a year living in the Netherlands around 2002/3 the only bit I ever saw of Amsterdam was Schipol - so if anyone could offer me a few pointers I'd be very grateful!

Incidentally, does anyone have any ideas on how to buy tickets? I clicked on the link from the live news page but there doesn't seem to be an option to buy tickets on it... I also tried ticketmaster nl but they didn't show a listing.

Wow, so you worked as an employee on Schiphol, or what?

(Ah, Netherlands has more than Amsterdam, true. Typically big city-behaviour, very wrong)

But Sid. Does Google Earth or online roadmaps exist on the planet where you live...?

It is very to find. Take streetcar 1, 2, or 5 from the Central Station and hop off at the Leidseplein.

Lucky you, you have few months to find out how to travel from Schiphol to CS. :innocent:

No, Dinky Daisy, I didn't work at Schipol - I lived in Heerenveen but passed through Schipol enough times to form an unhealthy attachment to the place!

Yes, Google Earth does exist where I am, but I thought I'd give someone the warm glow of satisfaction that comes from helping a newbie out! Thanks for the directions, by the way, now to find my way from Schipol to Centraal!

Yes, that sums up Heerenveen very well :)
None of those applied to me, though - I just knew someone who married a Heerenveener and ended up living there myself...
Thanks for the welcome![/quote]

Just saw on the Paradiso website that O'Death are support.

"O’Death draws on traditional folk, bluegrass, punk, gypsy music, metal, swing and jazz stylings." (no Goff) :lol:
